Prince Gustaf Adolf (1906-1947) - King Carl XVI Gustaf's Father

Prince Gustaf Adolf (1906-1947) was killed in an air crash in the airport of Copenhagen, Kastrup (Denmark) during a visit to his sister, the late Queen Ingrid of Denmark 26 January 1947, and therefore a generation Bernadotte was erased. What a terrible disaster. It was really shocking and devastating for the Royal Family and most of all for Gustaf V, Princess Sibylla and their children. When Prince Carl Gustaf was a child he wasn't allowed to talk about his father infront of the Princes mother, Princess Sibylla.

The Duke of Västerbotten is with no doubt one of my favourite royalties and I want you to remember him. Sometimes I wonder, how would it be if the Prince didn't die that day!

I'm sorry that I was harsh on you Josefin. I should have chosen diffrent and more gentle words.

The Duke of Västerbotten was given his first state uniform which this eldest son of the Crown Prince of Sweden is shown wearing above, just after having taken the oath of allegiance to the Swedish Parliament on January 13 1925.
