: I am aware of Pr.Bertil's role as spare to the
: throne at a time when all his brothers
: (apart from the Cr.Prince) had made unequal
: marriages and were banned from the throne
: line, and the Cr.Prince only had daughters.
: Precisely because the Crown-Prince, after 12
: years of marriage, had only produced
: daughters, was it ever foreseen a solution

: the salic law ?
: Had the Cr.Prince ever tried to revert the

: heiress to the throne ?
: Are there notices of any demarches he might
: have made with his father and grand-father
: (the then king), government, parliament ?
: Any facts revealing Pr.Bertil's thoughts on
: such (eventual) project ?
: If at the time he was already dating Lilian,
