Count Carl Johan Bernadotte of Wisborg (1916-2012) and Family

Couldn't find another thread on the former Prince Carl Johan Arthur of Sweden, Duke of Dalarna. Therefor, I decided to open a new one.

Please find attached some beautiful pictures of a lovely old couple:

BTW, according to Wikipedia he is the last surviving great-grandchild of Queen Victoria.

Enjoy!

Carl Johan Bernadotte till Victoria: Be happy! | Svensk Damtidning
An article on Count Carl Johan Bernadotte. He seems like a sweet man. Another person might have been bitter about losing his title.

Here is a nice interview of count Carl Johan and countess Gunnila from 2010.
They tell that they had known each other "always", they met for the first time in 1930 and Gunnila and Carl Johan's first wife Kerstin were good friends. Gunnila tells that Greta Garbo stayed at her family's home in Sörmland when she visited Sweden, but she stopped to come when the war started in 1939. Greta Garbo had met Gunnila's parents in Folke Bernadotte's wedding in 1928. In 1950's Greta Garbo came again to Sweden and met Carl Johan and Kerstin Bernadotte. In September 1988 Carl Johan and Gunnila got married in Copenhagen, and prince Bertil and princess Benedikte attended at the wedding.
They tell also that in the summer 2008 Victoria visited them with Daniel to present them to him. Count Carl Johan had started to get some balance problems and when they went down the hill, Daniel took him under his arm and helped him.
The article has a lot of nice, old and newer photos.

What a lives Carl Johan and Gunnila have lived, both apart and together.

Very sad news indeed, though i guess it was expected as she has been absent from all family celebrations in recent years. Something she would never miss if her health would have permitted it.
She was a very elegant and lovely woman.

Rest in peace Countess Gunnila. I hope you are reunited with Carl Johan (and Carl Herman).

Majesty magazine's article popped up on my Facebook. I was surprised by the news. My condolences to the family on the loss of the lovely lady, and another loved member of the family. May she rest in peace reunited with her husband.
