Hi all, I'm a new poster and a bit late with this post, but on the day of the funeral, there was a one hour Seraphim Toll ringing at the Riddarholmen Church in Stockholm for Prince Philip. He received the order, which is the highest one in Sweden, in 1954. There was also a short video clip on TV from the ceremony but don't think the link will work outside the country. Google translate below.
As a rookie, I'm not sure if I manage to post the pictures properly, but they are all here: https://www.kungahuset.se...4ca01784aaa522d17c20.html
