From HM King Gustaf VI Adolf funeral I just know some royals who attended it.

Besides the Swedish Royal Family, attended the funeral:
Denmark - HM, Queen Margrethe II (his grand-daughter), HRH Prince Hendrik and HM Queen-mother Ingrid (his daughter)
Greece - TM King Konstantinos II and Queen Anna Maria (his grand-daughter)
Norway - HM King Olav V and TRH Crown Prince Harald and Crown Princess Sonja
Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg - HH Prince Richard and HRH Princess Benedikte (his grand-daughter)
Thailand - HRH Princess Maha Sirindhorn

Probably many other royals had attended this State funeral

I also would like to see pictures from the funerals of TRH Prince Gustaf Adolf and Princess Sibila (parents of HM King Carl XVI Gustaf) and of TM King Gustaf V Adolf (great-grandfather of HM King Carl XVI Gustaf) and HM Queen Louisa (second wife of HM King Gustaf VI Adolf).
If there are not pictures, I would like to see the royals who were there

It's almost two years since the last post in this thread, but here you go!

This is probably the last picture taken of our king Gustav VI Adolf. He was taken to the hospital, but he was almost 91 years old, and he soon passed away.

This is a picture from the funeral. Many of his children and grandchildren are seen in this picture.

Okay, I have checked. King Gustav VI Adolf died on September 15th 1973. On September 18th, he was taken on a last journey through Sweden. The funeral took place on September 25th.
