Netherlands - I have read that there is very limited (like 1 spot) in their crypt below (Delph??) church. I also read that there was significant water damage during WW2 due to power outages and the pump/dehumidification system (or something like that) stopped working.
Does anyone have any information on this?

At the moment there are restoration works in the New Church in Delft, which also houses the mausoleum of the Orange-Nassaus. It is correct that in World War II the rising level of ground water caused damage to the crypts but it is not known if there was damage to the coffins.

The mausoleum of the Orange-Nassaus will be re-organized, not enlarged.
Due to the re-organization of the coffins, additional space will be created for new generations of Kings and their spouses. The electric installations in the crypt will be modernized. The church itself will get floor heating, new technical installations, a state-of-the-art lighting plan and a new sound system. The roofs of the church will get new tiles, the bricks will be cleaned and new cement will be added, to bring it all in spic-and-span state. The crypt itself remains untouched apart from a new paint and reorganization of the coffins.

When there is a royal funeral tomorrow, in the Netherlands, then there is a problem: it will be impossible to use the traditional venue, the New Church in Delft: http://oudeennieuwekerkdelft.nl/stat...IMG%206058.jpg

The little princess was named Josephine; she was a twin sister to Princess Henriette, and she died less than two months after her birth.
Also Empress Charlotte of Mexico is buried there; she was born a Princess of Belgium, the daughter of King Leopold I.

Princess Anna Vasa of Sweden, daughter of king Johan III of Sweden and sister of king Sigismund III Vasa of Poland, Sweden and Lithuania, is buried in the Church St. Mary of Torun in Poland. Because she had been a staunch Protestant living in a Catholic country the pope didn't allow her to be buried in a Catholic churchyard. It took 11 years before her nephew king Wladyslaw IV got the papal decree reversed and she could be buried. Her nephew built a lovely tomb monument to her honour: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...aVasaGrave.jpg

Sorry, if my question sounds stupid.

Is it allowed as visitor to lay down flowers at graves or in front of coffins in crypts?

Here's a photo of the crypt of Karin Månsdotter in Åbo Cathedral with flowers: http://web.comhem.se/anetteskungar1/Sverige/karin.jpg so my guess is that it's ok. The Royal Cemetery at Haga is open to the public during the summer so if visitors have flowers with them they can leave those there without problems. How the rules are in other countries I don't know.

Prince Wilhelm of Sweden is buried at the cemetery in Flen, in his duchy of Sörmland, and near Stenhammar palace where he spent much time. His former daugher-in-law Karin, the first wife of Lennart Bernadotte of Mainau, is buried in the same grave. Next to the grave of prince Wilhelm is the grave of his long-time companion Jeanne de Tramcourt, who had died in 1952. That's probably the reason why prince Wilhelm choose to be buried in Flen. Here you can find photos of the graves: Trond Norén Isaksen: What to see: Prince Wilhelm’s grave, Flen Churchyard

The royal crypt in Brussels is very little, after Queen Mathilde and King Philippe die, there won't be a place anymore for the others. Do you think they might build another crypt? Has it happened yet in other countries?

Great question. I'm interested in the answer as well.

The British have a similar problem. The chapel in St George's where George VI and Queen Elizabeth are buried supposedly only has 4 spots left. Two are for the Queen and Philip. That's why Margaret was cremated to be buried with her parents.

Edward VII and Alexandria are at the alter and George and Mary are in the church by the door. The Royal vault is filled with the Hanovers.

Perhaps the might extend the crypt in the future or else they'll choose another burial site.
