Funeral of Princess Lilian

The funeral of Princess Lilian of Sweden occurred today in Stockholm. The Swedish Royal Family and Queen Margrethe of Denmark attended the service to celebrate and remember her life.

Queen Margrethe of Denmark wore the same wool hat with fur brim she wore to visit the Royal Life Guards earlier this month, but replaced the red button detail with an ivory one.

Sofia Hellqvist, longtime girlfriend of Prince Carl Philip, also attended. While not officially a Swedish Royal, her attendance at this event seems to indicate she has become a member of this family. She wore a brimless round straight-sided hat with domed, pork pie style crown. I thought something about the scale and placement of this hat was a little off- it just seems perched a little too high on the crown of her head.

  1. I like all the hat’s except Sofia’s hat. It looked like one of Queen Beatrix’s old hats. I really hope she does not become a member of this family. She is terrible.

  2. Victoria’s hat is gorgeous. And I like how Margrethe changed the button on her hat to make it wearable for a funeral.
