Alexandra over at the GREMB scanned and posted some pictures of the King through the years, but considering I'm not registered over there (yet) I wanted to ask here whether someone knows at what occasion these 2 pictures were taken. The first one is from 1958 and the second one is from 1962.

Re the 1st pic: I see the then crown prince, his 4 sisters, his mother Sibylla, his uncle Bertil, his grandfather Gustav VI Adolf and Queen Louise with the ladies except the youngest pricess all wearing their court dresses. Does someone know who is the old man on the right side?

Re the 2nd pic: Louise wears the 9- pronge- tiara, Sibylla the Connaught tiara, the princess in the middle one of the Button tiara. Were the other 2 tiaras personal gifts for the princesses? And where was the 4th princess?

Thanks :)

Edit: Just wanted to add that she scanned and posted around 180-200 pictures of the king over the years. Most are pre-kingship.

Prince CArl Phillip bears a strong resemblance to his dad.

He sure does. And Carl Gustaf bears a resemblance to his father Gustav Adolf too.
I just adore this one. Baby prince Carl Gustaf with his great grandfather, his grandfather and his father.

HM King Carl Gustaf at the Persepolis celebrations in Iran 1971, then as crown prince of Sweden:

He was a very cute little boy! My favorite is the one of him in the military uniform. He had very large eyes. What color were they?

Thanks for the pictures. I wonder if there are any pictures of Carl Gustaf with his father who died when he was so young.

This is my only one. The picture also shows his grandfather the crown prince, the future king Gustav VI Adolf, and his great grandfather, king Gustav V.

Thanks Furienna,

I know he was quite young - still a baby when his father died so I wasn't sure of there were any pictures at all of the two of them together.

Furienna 06-13-2007 05:07 AM

I think they have to be few. He wasn't even one year old, was he?

Thanks for posting that four generation picture Furienna, I am fond of these kind of pictures, and this one is rather famous. And luckily they didn't stick small Carl in a uniform yet ;)

It is last photo on four generations kings! After King Gustaf Adolf death 1947 and his father,grand-father farewell on his funeral. Princess Sibylla was widow after late king Gustaf Adolf. Princess Sibylla was widow 24 years!

Furienna 06-21-2007 02:18 PM

Actually, since Gustav Adolf Edmund (Carl Gustaf's father) didn't even become crown prince, since his grandfather survived him, this can't be called four generations of kings. It can only be called "four generations of royals" or "four generations of Bernadottes".
