There was a private ceremony afterwards. It is possible that they were there. The Guillermo’s have always been very private and perhaps prefer to keep their children away from the press.

That is for the parents to decide.

Most probably yes,they are never seen in public,or hardly,and love to keep it that way.

There were Laureats of the Princess Christina Music Concours in attendance
at the ceremony at the Royal Mews and some performed

Meanwhile the ceremony is over and the late Princess has been cremated.R.I.P.

What a lovely farewell. Personally I love the bright colours and if it was the late Princess' wish than it is perfectly right the family honour it. She had, I believe, been ill for some time? Thus I suspect sadly she probably planned elements of today herself.

As for the grandchildren not attending - those ages 10 & 8 - do seem IMO young to attend a funeral - in our family we always waited until we were teenagers - but every child is different in terms of whether they are ready or not. I am sure they have said goodbye in their own way, possibly, as other suggested, attending but simply away from the cameras in order to maintain their privacy. The funeral of your grandmother is hardly the place to have to learn to cope with cameras.

There were only a few of the grandchildren's generation visible. But the cortège went from the Garden Pavillion to the Royal Mews where a private ceremony was held with invitées only. We have no idea who were there.

The funeral today is exactly as I'd have imagined nice and simple no fuss just like Princess Christina.

The funeral is solemn and dignified. The mourners are paying great and special tribute to their loved relative through their actions, clothes and the whole arrangements. All most appropriate.

Exactly they were all respecting Princess Christina's wishes it was her private funeral.

If I understand it correctly from royalblog: the farewell ceremony first went to the royal stables, on the spot where the golden carriage is usually located. After that it moved to the royal ballroom of Noordeinde palace where more family & friends joined for a ceremony. Later in the day the remains of the princess were escorted to the crematorium by her three children. The rest of the family went home.

The blog also says that earlier this week the children of Bernardo (Isabel and Julian) were seen near the royal stables. The blog claims that the mother of the children has not been seen in public with the RF since 2012. Juliana Guillermo delivered her 3rd child - a daughter with the name of Aida - only a few weeks ago.

I agree. We didn't see Tao (Juliana's long time partner and father of their 3 children) either, so probably he already was in the Stables (where the short service took place) with the children. So, even though his name and their children's names were visible with their wreath, he wasn't willing to give up his anonymity to join his partner walking behind the coffin while facing the cameras. So we only saw the two brothers and one sister walking up front.

BTW, Juliana looked much older than her 37 years of age. Part of that might be her being in mourning and/or recovering from giving birth.

The last time Eva was seen with Bernardo was at Carolina and Albert's wedding in Italy in June 2012. Nicolas' girlfriend attended a few other family celebrations in prior years but apparently they were no longer together at this wedding.

It was reported some years ago that Bernardo and Eva were likely divorced.

What a lovely tribute. While the bright colors may be surprising for a memorial lovely tribute and Christina's wishes.

The sunflowers and the room with the coffin were stunning.
