Isn't that fairly standard practice at a funeral? I know at my grandparents and at my parents funerals the family at least bowed/curtseyed when the coffins were being taken out of the church.

I've been looking for that clip too. Where did you find it? Could you post a link, please?

It was such an emotional and sad event, they truly loved Princess Lilian! You will never be forgotten...

Not at any of my family members' funerals. But then we tend to be cremated, so the services don't take place in churches and the coffins stay where they are till after the people have left the room. But even at funerals I've been to in churches I've never seen anyone bow or curtsey.

We bow to the coffin or urn, as a sign of respect. Nothing unusual about it to me.

Swedes have a deep and ingrained custom of bowing and curtsy out of respect. Notice how often CP Victoria does a slight curtsy in various circumstances.

Thank you all that have so generously posted photos and links to this very moving funeral. You can feel the loss the royal family is feeling just by looking at the photos. It is also a very poignant death as of the relatives close to the royal family Princess Lilian was the last one. The King's uncle passed away almost a year ago and now P.Lilian. The King and Queen are now the senior generation in the immediate family.

You can see the royals coming and curtseying at this video from 1.45 minutes. First come Carl Philip, Madeleine and Chris. Then Victoria and Daniel. Then queen Margrethe and finally king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia.

I hope the United Kingdom was represented at the funeral of this {sometime} British subject ? Perhaps the Britsh Ambassador was amongst the congregation ?

Thank you for this -I watched the service and this was one of my questions! HM Queen Silva and HM Queen Margarethe both gave deep curtesy.

Was the coronet/crown that was placed on her coffin for her duchy? Or was this something that Sweden does for all royals?

Do we have a list at all of who was represented by each country -the countries that were asked to be represented?
