Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt has paid tribute to Princess Lilian of Sweden, who passed away yesterday aged 97.
The Welsh-born actress married Prince Bertil in her 60s after finally receiving the king’s blessing – the pair first met in London during World War II when she was 28.
Reinfeldt said that a "much loved and appreciated member of the royal family has now passed away".
Prince Bertil's father, King Gustaf VI Adolf, had refused to allow the couple to get married because she was commoner and divorcee.
