: A question a propos of nothing but curiosity.
: Reigning monarchs as heads of state get
: state funerals in virtually every monarchy
: as a matter of course. Are there examples
: or established protocols from recent times
: (say, post-World War II) of state funerals
: in any European monarchy:
: 1. Former monarchs who have abdicated
Leopold III of Belgium.
Not sure what kind of funeral Leka of Albania had.
: 2. Consorts of reigning monarchs
Pr. Claus of NL
: 3. Widow(er)s of reigning monarchs
Pr. Bernhard of NL; Pss Grace of Monaco
: 4. Heirs apparent to reigning monarchs
There is of course the Diana funearl.
The ex-wife of the heir and mother of the 2nd in line.
: (Can't think of a recent example of this.
: Prince Gustav Adolf was of course heir
: apparent to the heir apparent, but that's
: not quite the same. But does anyone have a
: standard protocol about this?)
: 5. Any other royal personage
How would you define Stefano Casiraghi ?
Husband of the heiress to the heir and father of the heir to the heiress to heir.
