He was never Crown Prince. His father, Gustav VI Adolf, didn't succeed to the throne until 1950, when he'd been dead for 3 years. And they spell it "Adolf". He was Prins Gustav Adolf or maybe Arveprins (Hereditary Prince) if Sweden has this title.

And I think that's a monocle he's wearing.

They look like a lovely couple. It's sad that they had to die before they had the chance to become king and queen. Did they die in a car accident or something else?

kelly9480 12-30-2002 12:30 PM

He died in 1947 in a plane crash in Denmark. She died in 1972 in Sweden. I don't know what she died of, but it wasn't a car crash.
