Paintings of prince Eugen are displayed at "Arcadia – A Paradise Lost", on display on the upper floor of Nationalmuseum from 17 September until 17 January 2021"

This autumn's exhibition at Nationalmuseum opens on 17 September and features French and Italian art from primarily the 17th century but also French and Nordic art until the turn of the 20th century. The exhibition shows how people's view of nature has changed through the ages and also addresses the many classical stories conveyed in the paintings. Artists on display include Claude Lorrain, Nicolas Poussin and Salvator Rosa and, from more contemporary times, Prince Eugen, Anna Boberg and Otto Hesselbom.
The more idea-based discussions surrounding the human image of nature are deepened in a few smaller rooms in the exhibition by a collaboration with Färgfabriken. At this point the exhibition leaves Arcadia to explore the industrialised society’s relationship with nature on the theme of hinterland. A number of pieces from Nationalmuseum’s collections by artists such as Prince Eugen, Axel Sjöberg and Anna Boberg are discussed and displayed based on contemporary discussions on natural resources, urbanisation and climate issues.

Interesting that his funeral took place at the Chapel at Skogskyrkogården Cemetry, and not at Storkyrkan Cathedral or the Chapel at the Royal Palace. He had indeed a strong and interesting personality.

Prince Eugen was the first Swedish royal to be cremated, and cremations were done at Skogskyrkogården, so that could be a reason. One other reason could be that he liked the place, he had been there in the inauguration of the Skogskrematoriet, and it's a lovely place when it comes to architecture, and decorations in and out, done by artists he knew, so my guess is that it was a place that was meaningful to him.
There's a photo of prince Eugen and the future king Gustaf (VI) Adolf at the inauguration here: https://sv.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skogskrematoriet

Prince Eugen’s will left Waldemarsudde and his collection to the Swedish state in 1947. Administration was handed over to the City of Stockholm. A special board was appointed to take charge of the care and operation of the property. In 1995, the state took over the property’s administration. Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde is from 1 July 2017 an independent foundation with government grants. The board and director of the Museum run it pursuant to Prince Eugen’s will.

Prince Eugen's Waldemarsudde has updated its website, it was opened on 27th January.
Home - Waldemarsudde

At the website about the art collection
At the time of Prince Eugen’s death in 1947, the collection included some 3,200 works by the prince himself, and some 3,500 works by almost 450 other artists. This made it one of the largest privately owned collections in Sweden. Since then, only a few works have been added to the collection. The additions have come in the form of gifts, such as the August Strindberg works that were donated to the museum in 1979, and through purchases to complement artists already represented, such as paintings by Peder Severin Krøyer and Mina Carlson-Bredberg that were added to the collection in the 1970s. The latest major donation came in 2016, when 7 paintings and 3 lithographs by Swedish painter Olle Olsson Hagalund, was donated to the museum.
