That's because it is the bridal crown of the church she married in, Gärdslösa church on Öland (you can read that in one of my earlier posts about her wedding, and also in the newsletter devoted to "Princess Brides"). I don't know anything about this particular bridal crown really, but it belongs to the church and was lent out to Margaretha on her wedding day.

that is really interesting. so if say Madeleine decided to marry in that church she could also wear the crown?

can commoners borrow it for their weddings?

Yes, she could, if she would want too herself of course. It was Princess Margaretha's personal choice to wear the church's bridal crown, and not a piece from the Royal collections.

And yes, commoners can borrow the bridal crown if the church in question still has one. In older days in Sweden, bridal crown belonging to churchs was very common. It used to be the most important detail in the bride's attire on her wedding day. The church's bridal crown was lent out to chaste women's wedding attire and showed the bride's virginity and her being a maiden - and became a symbol for the weddings.

thanks for the explanation! that is very interesting to read. it's lovely that Margaretha went along with that tradition.

I am going to research bridal crowns. do you know of any sites that have photos of them?

Svensk Damtidning reports that John Ambler, husband of princess Margareta, died last week at the age of 84. He was buried a few days later with a very secret cermony in England where only his wife and three children were present.

The death of John Ambler did not come as a surprise, he had been ill for many years and lived at a nursing home in Oxfordshire. No official announcement of his death has been made by the family and accordning to Svensk Damtidning not all members of the Bernadotte family were aware of his death.

That is sad news for Princess Margareta and her family. Is there any obvious reason why the ceremony was this private (not even the children-in-law), a family rift or just because Mr. Ambler and his family preferred the intimacy of a funeral in such a small circle, with the ones who really mattered in the life of the deceased.

On the cover of today's Expressen:
From castle to a cabin
Sweden's most private princess
The truth about Margaretha's anonymous life in the countryside
http://a.cdn-expressen.se/ImageHandl...ormat=original

The article is on the paper magazine, I hope that they put it online later.
They have put a short video of the village Margaretha lives online, only a few in the village know that Margaretha is a princess and a neighbour tells that she just wants to be a "normal" citizen.
