Didn't Birgitta once say that she planned to be buried in Sweden? I know they were separated for many years so I doubt Hansi would be buried in Sweden at her side.

Birgitta was asked by a journalist if she wanted to move back to Sweden.

She said that the only time she plans to move back to Sweden is after her death, to be cremated and buried at the Royal Burial Site in Stockholm.

So i guess either Hansi will have his funeral service in Germany and then be laid to rest in Stockholm or they will be buried apart.

As they have been separated for so long i also would not be surprised if he is to be buried in Germany and she in Sweden.

No surprise that she doesn't plan to return to Sweden. She hasn't lived with her husband in many years. It isn't as if she is living in their family marriage home and she is returning to her family.

Nor is it surprising that they would be buried apart. They are both closely linked to their own families and countries. Hansi's children will one day rest in Germany no doubt. Birgitta is still very much a princess of Sweden and it is no surprise she will wish to be buried with her parents and siblings.

The coffin of prince Johann Georg was brought to Hedinger Kirche on Friday.

Expressen tells that there was quite a lot press outside the church gates. The king, queen, Carl Philip, princess Birgitta and the rest of the family arrived at 11.50 and went in to the church from the back door.

The seraphim coat of arms of Prince Johann Georg was brought in military procession from the Royal Palace to Riddarholmen Church today where it was placed in front of the high altar while the church was open for the public. The church held open between 12.00 - 13.00 p.m while the bells rang and the Royal life guards stood guard.

I wonder if his long-term partner Sabine Leu was at this funeral? Technically Birgitta is the widow but Hansi had been living with Sabine for over a decade (he said at the time that he and Birgitta were 'good with each other' about it. Divorce was never an option.

He loved and promoted Romania in a very discreet way.

Did I miss Fürst Karl Friedrich, Fürstin Katharina, the previous Fürstin Alexandra, Erbprinz Alexander and his tree sisters? Maybe because they are already in Schloss Sigmaringen? They were more or less the hosts. The pictures showed guests arriving.

They and the Family of the deceased where driven in Cars to the back entrance of the Church so that they could arrive out of the sight of the Press and public.

I see. It was indeed announced on beforehand, that the funeral would have a strictly private character. Danke Schön!
