The state visit will be fulfilled as planned, said Annika Sönnerberg from the court press department to Expressen.

A great photo gallery from Lehtikuva, some unseen photos at least for me

Her story with Bertil was so inspiring. A true love story, with no doubt.

May she rest in peace

Rest In Peace H.R.H Princess Lilian The Duchess of Halland. Very sad to hear about this. Hopefully she is reunited with her love Prince Bertil now. Their love story touched the whole country.

As she was an H.R.H there will likely be a traditional ceremonial funeral arrangement with the casket on lit the parade in the royal palace church and a funeral service attended by representatives from royal house's, the government, ambassadors and the "official sweden".

Princess Lillian

A lovely great Aunt to the family, a real lady who was loved by the family. She was stunningly beautiful as a young woman. I am sure the family will miss her. May she rest in peace. Gone but never forgotten. 30 August 1915 - 10 March 2013.

Beautiful; she has an almost Greta Garbo-esque quality in the second and third photos.

I'm so sad to hear this news, but it was expected, she was ill from some time now, and her age didn't help either!

The Swedish royals had many great and kind-hearted members (my favourite swedish royal member of the past is Crown Princess Margareta), Princess Lilian is one of them and her true story is admirable.

I wonder if they will release tomorow the funeral's date, and I wonder about Victoria's name day, will it be canceled?

I'm sad to hear that princess Lilian has passed away, she have always been one of my favourites in the SRF. She always looked very elegant, she dressed well in a style that was perfect for her, and she looked very regal at official events such as the Nobel Prize ceremony. She also seemed to be a very funny person, and also a person who was able to make true and trustworthy friends, to have been a "known secret" in Stockholm for almost 30 years is a feat in itself. When finally becoming a princess she was actively helping her husband and the SRF in their duties, and remained active for a long time. It's a pity that her health declined in the later years and that she wasn't able to be out in public for the last six years or so.
