I stand to be corrected, as far as I know:

Comtesse = French
Countess = English
Graefin = German

mean all one and the same thing.

I stand to be corrected to - but as far as I know - Comtesse is used for an unmarried daughter, or until she reaches the age of 30 is often the use nowadays.

I haven't heard anything about that yet. I suppose they will wait until after Christmas to make all the arrangements.

Count Lennart Bernadotte of Wisborg was buried during the Christmas at the Mainau palace church. Only the closest family, and no member of the Swedish Royal Family, was present.

The City of Konstanz, of which Count Lennart was an honour citizen, and its Mayor will host a public memorial service for him on 21 January in the City Theatre of Konstanz.

Later in the spring, a memorial concert will also be held at Mainau.

Quarreling Bernadottes (after Sigvard & Marianne) part II:
According to Expressen, Lennarts children of the marriage with Karin Nissvandt, Jan (64) and Cecilia (60) weren´t invited to the funeral of their father. They also weren´t mentioned in the death notice (their elder sister-of the same marriage- Birgitta and the 5 children of the marriage with Sonja were)
It´s said reasons for their bad relationship are, the fact, that Lennart has left their mother for Sonja, that Jan was quite extravagant (it´s said he has spent the whole inheritance of his grandfather prince Wilhelm in half a year) in the 1960ties and that Jan has adopted a german guy, named Gerard. Who has called himself "prince of Sweden" and who has tried all to get headlines (he was for example manager of Nadja ab del Farag, who is one of those persons, who had once a relationship with a famous person, and try then all to get money out of it)
Jan said, he wants now to write a book about his life...

Article (with photo of Jan and Cecilia):

Countess Bettina, the heir

In the beginning of March 2004, Comtesse Bettina (now Countess), met the media at Mainau before her 30th birthday later that month. Her 30th birthday meant that she assumed to the title Countess.

Bettina's mother and the widow of Count Lennart, Countess Sonja, is today the President of the family company - Countess Bettina is the Presidential Secretary and the heir. One day she will take over the legacy after her father. From Fotomarktplatz.
