According to Expressen, Victoria and Daniel have arrived. No photos yet. Maybe they have been there for the whole day, Pär Engsheden visited the Palace during the day, and I would think that if he makes a dress for someone, it is Victoria. The royal family will give their farewell between 16.00-20.00.

I agree, nice from her; she probably also enjoyed a good relationship with Princess Lilian.
To be noted however that she arrived listening to music; of course we don't know what sort of music. It contrasts however with the dignity od the other members of the Royal family.

Maybe Sofia had a good relationship with Lilian. But probably Lilian didn't know who she was, since according to the royal experts the only person princess Lilian recognized during the last years was queen Silvia. Sofia has dated Carl Philip a little over three years, and in June 2010 the royal court told officially that princess Lilian had Alzheimers. Her memory had started weakening already many years earlier, and in 2008 at the king's birthday princess Lilian fainted. After that she withdrew from the public life.

Many people have nice stories about Lilian. Former royal reporter Sten Hedman told today that once in a long time ago, he was working at a charity event princess Lilian attended. He asked very politely from Lilian, if he could ask a few questions. Princess Lilian gave him a beautiful smile and said: Of course, after you have bought at least ten lottery tickets from me!

It's not certain that either Sofia or Chris have met princess Lilian, as both started dating their partners after Lilian retired from public life. As she had Alzheimer, it's possible that the number of people she received at home during the last years were only those she had known before her mind got muddled, to minimize her confusion.

It could well be as you say, but it is also possible that as the relationship got serious, Sofia accompanied Carl Philip when he visited.

It has been my experience that there comes a point where people with dementia do not necessarily get distressed when meeting new people. They might not remember them for very long, but can seem quite happy to meet them.

I can understand Carl Philip wanting Sofia to meet his beloved aunt, even if Lilian didn't even recognise him. You still visit the person you cared so much for, and even if they can no longer communicate you can never be absolutely sure that on some level, deep down, they are still aware and appreciate the visit.

The court has not released the list of the guests who will attend, but Lilian was extremely popular, and the invitations have gone out worldwide.
- It's royalty, family and friends who have been invited. But I haven't got the list of those attending. Many have found it difficult to say if they can get here because the funeral is held at such short notice, says Annika Sönnerberg from the press department.

One of the invited was Bond actor Roger Moore, 85. He and Lilian were very close to each other and have known each other for decades.
Lilian traveled to London and surprised Roger Moore on his 70th anniversary.
But as the princess got worse, it was he who had to come and visit her at the Villa Solbacken, where they used to drink tea together.
- We've known each other a long time. So when we got the news of her passing on Monday, we were obviously very sad, says Roger Moore, when Aftonbladet reached him at his home in Switzerland.
Moore remembers the princess with warmth, especially for her special sense of humor.
- She was truly a wonderful person. Lilian was incredibly funny, says Roger Moore.
But he will not attend the funeral.
- We can't come because I undergo eye treatment right now. We are very sorry. But now Lilian finally can rest with her beloved Prince Bertil again.

Today, the royal family takes the last farewell of the Princess Lilian - but already last night they had an own lit de parade at the Royal Chapel between 16 and 20.
Both Chris O'Neill and Sofia Hellqvist were present during the private memorial service yesterday - just as they will be in the Royal Chapel today.
Just after half past six in last night the royals began to leave the palace, but at seven Madeleine and Chris, Carl Philip, Victoria and Daniel, and Princess Christina and Tord Magnuson returned. A little later the king's other sisters arrived to end the day with a dinner at the palace.

It's a sad day. All flags at half mast but Stockholm is giving The Princess a very beautiful weather on her last journey.

I guess chris will sit with Madeleine and Sofia with the other grusets as she did with chris at estelles christning.

Chris has a place with the royal family becouse of the engagement. And sofia is not official that is why she will sit with other guests

Did my eyes deceive me, or did Queen Margrethe curtsey deeply to Princess Lilian's coffin when she arrived?
