Dedicated to Crown Princess Margaret

24 Aug

The beautiful stained glass windows in the Church of Saint Peter and Saint Sigfrid, the English Church, are made by Morris & Co in London and the Swedish artist Einar Forseth. The largest and most beautiful of these windows is the one in the west end of the church. It’s dedicated to the Crown Princess Margaret of Sweden, the grandmother of our present King Carl XVI Gustav and the Danish Queen Margrethe II. The English born Princess Margaret of Connaught, grandchild of Queen Victoria, married Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden in 1905. Two years later she become the Crown Princess of Sweden when Gustav V ascended to the throne. But Margaret was never to be Queen of Sweden, in 1920 she sadly passed away while pregnant with her 6th child. However, Sweden still got a English born Queen. Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf married with Louise Mountbatten in 1923 and in 1950, when Gustaf VI Adolf ascended to the throne, Louise become Queen consort of Sweden.
