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

I sure am glad that sorting out the seating is NOT my problem.

just a little quibble but I wonder how the Chileans will view the Danish Head of State at a family funeral rather than participating in a planned State Visit cancelled due to ill health.

Her Majesty must be feeling better, it's the funeral of her aunt. I know Her Majesty's late mother, Queen Ingrid, was very close to Prince Bertil and Princess Lilian.

Anyway, the Crown Princely couple has undertaken the visit.

but you seem to be forgetting that HM is NOT a member of the royal house or court of sweden
i know that we are not going to agree on this matter so better leave it there
we have our own opinions and have the right to belive in what we belive

It's great to have to deal with different opinions.

Queen Margrethe isn't a member of the Swedish Royal Family, but she's a member of the family.

A niece (Queen Margrethe) is closer than a great-niece (Princess Madeleine).

She may not be healthy enough to sit on a plane for 10-12 hours or more, but the flight from Copenhagen to Stockholm takes less than one hour, if she can't fly it takes about six hours by train or car.

I think the Chileans will understand that a 24 hours flight followed by 6 days of various engagements and more travels is a much more difficult task for a person with heavy backpains than a 45 minutes flight followed by 1 church service.

I think it's a good decision to give as many people as possible a chance to follow her last journey. Good to have Roger Lundgren as commentator. He can do it respectfully and knows very well what he is talking about

There will be a Serafimerringning at Riddarholmskyrkan on Saturday before the funeral of princess Lilian. Serafimerringning i Riddarholmskyrkan på lördag - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version] It's always done before the funeral of a knight of the Order of the Seraphim.

I'm just hoping they sit Queen Margrethe and Princess Madeleine wherever they want to sit them rather than where we think they should sit them.

Princess Lilian's coffin arrived to the Royal Palace, princess Christina and Tord Magnuson came there too.
Så ska de hylla Lilian

On Saturday the royal family says farewell to his beloved "auntie Lilian".
According to Aftonbladet's sources it is wanted that the princess' personality shines through. Among other things, her coffin to be adorned with favorite flower lily of the valley. When Lilian married she carried lilies of the valley in her bridal bouquet and the flower has always been the symbol of Lilian's and Bertil's love.
According to Aftonbladet's source of the royal family also wants Lilian's favorite songs to be played.
- There have been requests for some music, I think we all were touched by "Unforgettable" in Bertil's funeral, said the source.
Nat King Cole classics meant a lot to Lilian and Bertil. Another piece of music that will be on the wish list is the British anthem "For all the saints."

Lilian's coffin arrived in the evening to the Royal Palace. The royal family has gathered for a private memorial service.
- I just know that it's the royal family. Exactly which family members are there I do not know, says Annika Sönnerberg from the press department to Expressen.

I have to be honest, I knew absolutely nothing about Princess Lillian until her passing. From all that I have read this week she sounds like an extraordinary woman. Hollywood couldn't write a better love story then the one that existed between Bertil&Lillian. I hope that she and her love have finally been reunited.
