I thought it was a nice service.
I didn't realize she was there. As they did not show her walking in. They put her in the family section? That was a nice gesture.

That was Princess Eugenie's crown. The crown is made ​​in 1860 in Stockholm by Edward Emanuel after the model of Princess Hedvig Elisabet Charlotta crown from 1778.

Princess Lilian has been ill for quite some time and also 97 years old so that this day would come must have been anticipated for a long time. A blessing for the royal family that they now have time for a mourning period before celebrating the wedding of Princess Madeleine and Chris.

No offence absolutely, either to the person, or the tradition.
But somehow I will never approve a Queen Regnant curtseying someone, alive or past.
I noticed the same thing when QM II curtseyed at her father's grave along with her sisters..
It just takes out the majesty or mystique or whatever.
You can always slightly bow, just as QEII did for Diana, but curtseying is too much, just my opinion..

SVT showed a 20-minute memorial program this evening, here it is. It is a great program, the princess speaks english so almost everyone can understand the most part of it.

This was one of the nicest and most emotional funeral services iv've ever seen. When Karl-Magnus Fredriksson sang Bred Dina Vida Vingar (spread your wide wings) and when the bagpipe played "Auld Lange Syne" it was impossible to not cry.

However i don't like that the media showed close pictures of Silvias and Victorias faces when they cried. I also did not like that the media followed the cortege out to the burial grounds. It's okay that they televised the funeral service but the moment when the coffin is lowered in earth should be a private moment for the royal family !

I have to agree with you here! The burial ceremony is for sure a private event! Shame on the media for taking advantage of those moments.

Such funeral sadness I have not seen. I went to a funeral a week ago, and we were all sad for the widow, but there was joy and even laughter because of faith in eternity. I guess they were sad that Princess Lillian never had a family other than theirs? It is so good that they stood by her in her old age when she finally got the title she deserved.
They owed her a lot and they felt it--good that they did this.

Princess Lilian was an HRH and princess of Sweden, that's why a crown made for a Swedish princess was placed on her coffin.

I would say their sadness was because they were mourning their loss of a beloved aunt, grand-aunt, and especially for the children of the king and of princess Christina, someone who had been as a paternal/maternal grandmother, as princess Sibylla had died before they were born.

The only cousin of the royal children besides the Magnussons' attending the funeral was Hélène Silfverschiöld, who had been the maiden of honor at princess Lilian's wedding, if I remember correctly she also was one of Lilian's godchildren.

A video from the cemetery, you can see the royal family giving their last farewells. It was TV4 which was said filming there and giving it to Aftonbladet.

Thank you all for posting the proper link so that I will be able to watch it, the first link I found by myself wouldn't work out of Sweden.
Maybe the great sadness comes with Lillian being the last of that generation to go; the weight of "moving up a rung" in responsibility is hard to bear.

The media wasn't at the cemetary, they were filming from a distance.

Yes, I realized that, that's why I deleted my post. But you were faster.
