Prince Bertil's mother was the Brittish princess Margareth of Connaught. She was our crown princess for thirteen years. She was pregnant when she became sick and died, only thirtyeight years old.

Happy anniversary, Prince Bertil and Princess Lillian :)

I love (then) Crown Prince Gustav Adolf and Crown Princess Margaret's family. Their children were so beautiful, and it's a shame that Margaret died early, she would have made such a wonderful queen, and there would have been another beautiful Swedish baby in the family.

I was just looking at the pictures in this thread, and I was curious if Elizabeth II attended his funeral. There's a woman sitting next to Prince Philip who *could be* her, but her head is down, so it's hard to tell.

That would be some tribute, if she did. She attends very few funerals, especially outside England. (I remember her going to Baudouin's but that's about it.)

No it's not Queen Elizabeth. I can not rtecoginze the woman but i think it could be Queen Beatrix.

I think she died before her husband Gustaf VI Adolf became King. He later married Lady Louise Mountbatten, I believe.

HM The King Allowed his Own marriage to a commoner, Prince Bertil wasn't allowed to marry by his father HM. King Gusav Adolf bc as stated he would have lost his royal titles and place in line of succession and become Count of Wisborg as with all other previous Swedish Princes. Due to his sense of Duty and Loytaly to his country and the Crown, Prince Bertil and Princess Lillian chose to wait until King Carl Gustav himself had married, and he then gave permission for them to marry.
