This article quotes swedish Expressen's article, but there is no official announcement of the danish royals attending.

This article is probably correct, lets just hope that they wont seat Queen Margrethe in the front row and Princess Madeleine in the second row like they did at Princess Estelle's baptism.

Well, Queen Margrethe, as a Head of State, has a higher precedence than Princess Madeleine, even in the Swedish Court.

May this grand lady rest in peace.

Will her funeral be considered a Royal Ceremonial Funeral?

Usually at funerals those who are closer related are seated in the front, and a niece is considered closer that a grand-niece, so if correctly seated the king, his sisters and their cousins from the Danish royal family, together with their spouses, should be seated in the front, while their children would be placed in the second row. In this case I would guess that Victoria and Daniel will be seated next to the king and queen, but if correct seating, then Carl Philip and Madeleine should be seated with their cousins.

I spoke to staff at the Royal Palace today when I went to the State Hall (Rikssalen) to write in the condolence lists and if they are correct (they coudn't promise me that) the funeral service will not be televised but some seats inside the Palace Church will be reserved for media representants.

Not that i'm feeling it's important to me that it's televised but i think it's a little bit sad and wrong decision by the court to not give as many people as possible the chance to follow the princess on her last journey. Lilian was very loved and popular among the swedish people wether you liked the monarchy or not.

The decision to televise the funeral or not isn't only dependent on the court, one of the Swedish tv channels would have to be interested in sending the funeral, and I haven't heard about any interest from the media to televise it.

I don't think they would say anything if they have made a question to the court about this and recived the answer no.

MTV3 quotes the article in Expressen.
Lilian's lawyer Eric Ager told to Expressen, that the princess made changes to her will many times. About five-six years ago she was already so ill that she couldn't write her will anymore. Ager has Lilian's last will. He will attend at the funeral.

The article quotes Swedish Expressen - that is not an official confirmation.

but madeleine is a member of the royal house margrethe isn't and even if that were the case philippe,mathilde,frederik,and maxima were all in the front that day madeleine wasnt. You could argue by saying that they are all crown princes/esses but mathilde and maxima are only royal by marriage. I think that at family state events the members of the immediate family should always be seated in the front row, followed by people of the extended family in the second row, visitng royals should be seated in a separate area.

Anyway i will stop commenting about this because this thread isnt about seating plans at royal events. My condolences to the royal family im sure it is not easy to appear in public smiling and waving during such hard times

But Queen Margrethe is a member of the immediate family. She's King Carl Gustaf's first counsin, and a niece of the late Princess Lilian.

Take denmark for example , at frederiks wedding in 2004 the then princess alexandra and princess benedikte were seated in the front row because they are part of the danish royal house but queens sofia and beatrix were in the second row
skip to 6:27

Well Queen Margrethe can be seated at the first row either as a Head of State or as a member of the immediate family.
