King Carl met Queen Silvia in 1972. His mother Princess Sibylla died in 1972, and his grandfather died in 1973. Did Queen Silvia ever have the opportunity to meet either the King's mother or grandfather? Also, had King Gustaf VI Adolf lived for another few years, is there any reason to believe that he would have given his consent to the marriage of King Carl and Queen Silvia? Finally, Wikipedia states that King Carl was seven years old before his was told about his father's death. Is that accurate?
