Princess Lilian was one of Swansea’s most famous daughters.
Despite moving to London as a 16-year-old and then to Sweden, she remained proud of her Swansea links and this helped raise the city’s profile across Scandinavia and the rest of the world.
Her relationship with Prince Bertil was one of Sweden’s most enduring and best-known love stories.
This is a time both to mourn her passing and celebrate her 97-year life.
On behalf of the City and County of Swansea, I’d like to send my condolences to her family and friends.
