Well I don't know really - but I guess it's simply because they've met each other every now and then since he was a big tennis star, and maybe they "connect" well, and just like each other.

Maybe they connected because they shared a love of practical jokes?

Does Princess Lilian speak Swedish? I was watching the previous Nobel Prize Award Ceremonies, and noticed that when Du Gamla, Du Fria was played, she was not singing. I was wondering if it was because she just didn't want to sing, or if that she does not speak Swedish.

She speaks a little swedish, but always speaks english with her family and friends. So I dont think she´s that fluent...

Lilian fick sin prins – efter 33 år
https://www.aftonbladet.se/vinj/smagr..._svart_8x8.gif
Den 7 december 1976 fick de efter 33 år äntligen gifta sig.
Prins Bertil och hans Lilian Craig hade träffats i London under kriget den 30 augusti 1943. Men hon var en ”ofrälse” som dessutom var gift med en skådespelare.
Nej,varken farfar Gustav den femte eller pappa Gustav VI Adolf tillät något giftemål. De besvor honom för monarkins skull att låta bli. Kronprinsen var ju så liten och prins Bertil måste stå redo för att kunna rycka in som regent.
Prins Bertil lät bli. Men lätt kan det inte ha varit. Även om svenska folket och pressen gjorde allt för att underlätta. Man lät ”Berra” få ha sitt privatliv i fred i villan på Djurgården. Och när sen kungen gifte sig med sin ”ofrälse” Silvia fick prins Bertil och hans Lilian göra samma sak. Tjugo år som gifta fick de i alla fall tillsammans.

from aftonbladet its about that lillian and bertil had to wait so long to get married
i will try to translate it later

so it seems as Bernadottes can get quite old...

So a long time to go until Queen Victoria.

Dennism 10-26-2004 01:18 AM

Thanks for all of the great photos of Lilian and her beloved Bertil.

"so it seems as Bernadottes can get quite old..."

This is quite true. To start off, the father of the dynasty, Karl XIV Johan lived to the ripe old age of 81. His son, Oscar I lived to be 60. Karl XV lived to be only 46. He was thus followed by his brother, Oscar II who lived until he was 78. Gustav V lived to be 92. And Gustav VI Adolf lived to be 90. And that´s not counting the long lifetimes of family members like Queen Ingrid and Prince Wilhelm. It´s a family with good long-living genes.

To be honest I always have to smile a little bit, when the Queen says (and she says it quite often) that the Bernadottes become so old. You can´t predict one´s death. This depends on so many things...how you lead your life (nourishment, sports, smoking), how much you love your life (ppl, who don´t see a sense in their life die earlier) also on genes (but every Bernadotte has also the genes from the mother-side), medical care also plays a role (a Royal get the best specialists...and they often try to prolong life, even to a point, on which the Royal patient vegetates more than he/she lives). Except that there´s always the danger of an accident.
Of course I hope the current Bernadottes have a long and satisfied life, but (un)fortunately it´s not predictable.

Great photos. Bravo to Thomas Johansson for defeating Agassi too. It was Agassi´s second ever loss to a Swede. The first was to Peter Lundgren back in 1990.
