On the order of the Seraphim page, there is a "gold" circular medal.

I am dubious about it being this.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but I think that it can be King Carl XVI Gustaf 50th Birthay Medal.

If you mean this . it's not a medal, its a button that can be worn on the lapel when wearing semi-formal evening wear, when it's not correct to wear the sash.

Yes, it looks like it, but why is she wearing it with a bow and not the straight band as in the photo of the birthday medal?

The bow is the female setting of medals, the straight band is the male setting. This setting are used for all Royal medals or orders in Sweden.

Svensk Damtidning has interviewed some of Lilian's friends in it's latest issue.

Andreas Lindblom, former student at Manillaskolan School had written a letter to Lilian, when he was 13 years old. Lilian answered to him and they began to write to eachother. And one day Lilian arrived to his graduation, Andreas could hardly believe his eyes. A great friendship had started. Between 2003 and 2009 Andreas and his deputy headmistress Birgitta Sandberg were invited to Villa Solbacken two times a year.
- We could look around at a room full of all her Nobel dresses, and at another room there were presents the princess had got, Andreas and Birgitta told.
- We had so much fun and we mixed swedish, english and sign language. Sometimes it was quite a mess, but we just laughed! I will miss her, said Andreas, who is now 27 years old.
Lilian had a really big heart.
- She used to show us great photos and tell stories. And long before it was official that Victoria and Daniel were a couple, we saw a photo of them at Lilian's table. I remember that Lilian laughed and said: "The king doesn't want me to keep it there, but I keep it there anyway!", Andreas said.

I watched the complete funeral service of Princess Lilian and not only saw the grief and tears of the Royal Family, I also felt their pain. There is nothing as heartbreaking and cruel as standing next to an open grave. I know this from experience - I lost all my direct family members. My heart goes out to the Royal Family!!

It's only available in Swedish, it's possible to find it in some of the used bookshops online in Sweden, the title of the book is "Mitt liv med prins Bertil".

Queen Silvia talked to Expressen about princess Lilian at her visit to Silviahemmet
- Princess Lilian was very seriously ill at the end. Hope she could get an inner peace. It's hard to see anyone suffer.
Almost a month ago Princess Lilian died quietly in her home. For Silvia it was a great loss. Through the years Princess Lilian became not only a close friend - but also a extra mother to the Queen after her mother Alice Sommerlath died in 1997.
- Princess Lilian was an extremely happy person and lively, but the last few years, we saw that she began to suffer from dementia, says the Queen.
When Princess Lilian was diagnosed with dementia the queen asked help from Silviahemmet:
- I had the pleasure of using the three sisters from Silviahemmet who came and helped her. They were angels. They help Lilian and understood her and gave her time to express herself. It was a long time a lot of emotions up and down. You see a person whom you like to suffer.
Silvia reveals Princess Lilian's last days:
- She was previously a lively person. Eventually she could no longer express herself. She became weaker and weaker. We tried all help her as well as we could.

It was announced on Sunday, that less than a month after the death of Princess Lilian, her loyal and long-serving Marshal of the Court, Baroness Elisabeth Palmstierna died on 6th April at the age of nearly 96. Baroness Palmstierna served the Princess until last year and was never far from her side at public functions.

The funeral of baroness Palmstierna will be at the Royal Chapel on 22nd April.

Bertil Ternert from the court press department tells to Expressen about the death of baroness Palmstierna:
- All in the royal family are in mourning and will try to attend the funeral at the Royal Chapel.
Elisabeth Palmstierna came alongside Queen Silvia to become the greatest support for the Princess Lilian after Prince Bertil died in 1997. She visited Princess Lilian almost every day and in recent years it was Elisabeth Palmstierna who handled Princess Lilian's communication with the outside world.
Elisabeth Palmstierna, or "Beth" as she was called by Lilian, Queen Silvia and family, will be taken to final rest in the same church as Princess Lilian.
On April 22, the funeral takes place, and the day is at the royal family's calendar completely empty.
Also Crown Princess Victoria was close to Elisabeth Palmstierna. When the Crown Princess was visiting Princess Lilian in Villa Solbacken, Elisabeth Palmstierna was there in most times too.
