Have there been any comments from queen Margarethe of Denmark on the death of count Carl Johan?

So sorry for the death of Count Bernadotte.
He symbolised an entire era and was a much loved member of the Swedish Royal Family.

I'm very sad to hear that Carl Johan is dead, I most certainly think we'll hear somekind of statement from the Danish Royal Family tomorrow as I think that QMII was fond of her last uncle and I generally think that the DRF had a close relationship to him (wasn't he present at the little Prince Henrik's christening?).

I don't think he got to see Estelle, unless her parents went to visit Carl Johan. In this article, Folkkär prins blev greve - hd.se , it's mentioned that he said in a telephone interview that he hoped to go to Stockholm for the christening, but as we know it will not be so.

Maybe first grandson of the Royal Couple (no matter which one of their children will be his parent) will be named after him? It would be a nice gesture.

Carl Johan sounded like a elderly gentleman in all interwievs with him and he sounded something even better. He sounded like the cool old man on the block that talked to everyone on the block about the old times.

He lost his title, knew why and about the consequenses and accepted this and never complained like his brother that wanted his title back. Carl Johan said that he could live more free as a nonprince than a prince.

He didnt look a day over 80 at the wedding.

Imagine if he had lived and celebrated his 100th birthday and told a 8 year old Estelle that when he grew up there wasnt any radio or TV

Many thanks, Meraude. And, yes, sadly he will not be there.

This is if everyone is going to attend the funeral.
funerals take place (usually) 3/4 days after the actual day of death.
the christenings are late May which it will not affect the funeral as well as the state visits. Mary and Frederik might not attend considering their schedule, but Carl Johan is a Swedish royal, so it is not actually necessary for Mary and Fred to attend, but i think Queen Margrethe will, after all it was her uncle^^

I was just reading about him last night! He intrigued me because he was elderly and a kind of link to a time long gone. From what I read he was an interesting and honorable man, may God Rest His Soul.

Not true for Sweden, the average time from death to funeral here is beween 16 and 22 days depending on where in Sweden you live.

Prince Carl Phillip, at the inaugurated exhibition for 100 birthday of Prince Bertil, also had some words to say about Count Carl Johan.
Quote:
Before we do that, I would like to ask you to give some thoughts to Prince Bertil's brother Carl Johan Bernadotte - a person who also has meant a lot to our family and for me. Carl Johan was, like his brother, also a warm and happy person and he has now left a big gap. I also appreciated him very much and will miss him and our pleasant conversation.
