Yes he is...
I belive Silvia is very close to her brothers and the rest of her family. So it must be hard... and he was quite young to. Very tragic

I do feel it was vey unfair of photographers to have taken photographs at this sad and sensitive time.

The whole Royal Family are obviously very upset but Princess Madeleine looks very upset inparticular. may I offer condulances to the Royal family at this upsetting time.

from ANP

Princess Madeleine (front), the daughter of Queen Silvia of Sweden, and her sister Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden leave the cemetery after the funeral of Queen Silvia's older brother Joerg Sommerlath in Heidelberg, Germany, Friday, 24 February 2006. Sommerlath died of cancer at the age of 64 in a hospital in Aachen.

yes, yennie.. i thought it was merely 1 or 2 pics, but now we see lots of photos. it's unfortunate they cannot embrace this sadness peacefully & privately. the queen looks really sad and in tears, as do her children.
now, it's some from Getty



the family really look devastated and sad... :( :o

I'm sad that so many pictures were taken of them when it's so clear that they're in deep mourning. Especially Queen Siliva, who must feel the loss of her older brother very profoundly. I'm glad that Madeleine was able to come back from New York to Germany for the funeral. Is she going back to NYC afterwards or go back to Sweden to be with her family during these hard times?

I agree with all of you, and think it's really insensitive of the media to stand outside the cemetery for a private funeral like this. It must be really hard for the mourning people and the Royal Family to get this unwanted attention at these hard times.

One way to make a statement against such exploitation is to not post the pictures on sites like this one or to not buy any magazine containing such pictures.
