Kungliga begravningsplatsen (Royal Cemetery)
Solna
Solna kommun
Stockholms län  Sweden

Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Swedish Crown Princess Margareta (née Wettin-Windsor of England) was a lover and photographer of gardens and nature. She had expressed a wish by 1920 not to be buried in the Swedish pantheon, Riddarholm Church in the heart of Stockholm, breaking a tradition of royal funerals that had begun in 1290 (excluding the 16th century). This Royal Cemetery, and the island of Karlsborg hosting it in the Brunn Bay, were created by a peninsula in that bay being chopped off to form a separate little isle in the northern suburb of Solna, off the Haga Park. The bridge was designed by one of Sweden's most appreciated architects. Almost all Swedish royalty has been buried here since then, including members born into the Bernadotte Dynasty who later in life lost their royal titles by entering into unapproved marriages. The cemetery is private, owned by the Royal Family, but is open to the public during certain posted hours. (J T Demitz)
