Carl Johan Bernadotte laid to rest

Following a private memorial service in the Palace Church in Stockholm and a cortege through the capital today, Count Carl Johan Bernadotte af Wisborg, by birth Prince of Sweden, who died on 5 May at the age of 95, was laid to rest at the Royal Burial Ground at Haga in Solna just outside Stockholm.
Most of those family members who were present at the funeral service in Båstad yesterday were also present today, with the Prince Consort of Denmark and the ex-Queen of the Hellenes among the exceptions. Among those who were not present yesterday but took part in today’s ceremony were Princess Madeleine, Princess Birgitta, Princess Christina’s husband Tord Magnuson, the deceased’s sister-in-law Countess Marianne Bernadotte af Wisborg, his nephew Count Michael Bernadotte af Wisborg, and the three siblings Dagmar von Arbin, Count Oscar Bernadotte af Wisborg and Catharina Nilert, who are second cousins of the late Carl Johan Bernadotte and first cousins of his wife Gunnila.
