The Queen has two Ladies-in-Waitings, I think she used to have three, but according to the official website they are now two. The Crown Princess has chosen to use Aide-de-Camps instead of Ladies-in-Waiting, she has three of them. Prince Carl Philip has two Aide-de-Camps. Princess Madeleine have no personal aides yet. You can read more about staff in this thread.

So they still have aids? Well, why not? Rich people still hire people for everything.

Oh that is a very wise and financially shrewd move since the A-D-C's probably make ideal servants (funded by an outside source and exceedingly obedient)

I'm just curious why Princess Christina's sons get invited to royal functions abroad. Of course they are invited when the functions are in Sweden since they are nephews of the King but didn't we see Gustaf at Felipe and Letizia's wedding? I'm just wondering if the invitations for these functions extend as far to the sons/daughters of the siblings of the sovereign. (Hope that makes sense) :)

King Gustav V and Queen Victoria were buried at the RIDDARHOLM CHURCH in Stockholm:


I haven't found data on the other ones you posted, it's hard to find the burial places for non-monarchs

Okay... Thanks anyway...

Eugene was Gustav V's brother and Vilhelm was Gustav V's son.

Question Aluminium crown

I have read that the crown jewels of Sweden are set into an aluminium crown. :)
Has anyone a link to a photo of this crown? Which crown is it? I have Googled unsuccessfully; I saw various crowns online, in the Treasury at Stockholm but have not found what I am looking for.

What do you mean by "set into an aluminium crown"? There are many crown jewels, individual pieces, they have not been merged into anything. And as far as I'm aware, nun of them are made of aluminium....

Aluminium was at one time a rare metal, before electrolysis made extraction easier. One of the Swedish crowns is made of aluminium with jewels set into this metal. This ia a true fact; I just need to find a picture of this crown.

Do you really mean one of the crowns belonging to the regalia? Or do you mean a tiara/diadem from the Bernadotte Foundation or private collections?

They are Swedish, Brazilian (from Queen Silvia's mother) and German (from Queen Silvia's Father).

This is the only information I can find on the Internet:

Quote:
Aluminum, one of the most common elements present in soil but difficult to extract, was a precious metal little more than a hundred years ago; the crown jewels of Sweden are set in an aluminum crown

Well it would have to be one piece from the crown jewels, I guess a crown or tiara could be set in aluminium then. Not all the crown jewels, or regalia as they're called in Sweden, though - because they are individual pieces of their own material, shape/form and history.

Yes, aluminium must have been expensive and rare back in the day, since Napoleon and Josephine ate on aluminium plates and their guests "only" were allowed to eat on gold plates. And back when it was that expensive and rare, I guess it wouldn't have been that weird if a Swedish crown was made of this metal.
