The marriage of His Royal Highness Prince Bertil of Sweden to Lilian Craig on the 7th of December 1976. The couple met and fell in love in 1943, however, many complications prevented them from marrying but their love prevailed and they married 33 years later. Some of these obstacles included Lilian being married when they met, despite her husband returning from World War II in love with another woman and they subsequently divorced. Also, due to complications in the Swedish succession namely the untimely death of Prince Gustaf Adolf in 1947 leaving his infant son, thus, Prince Bertil could not marry Lilian, a commoner and lose his rights to the throne, as it was imperative for him to serve as regent.Thus, in 1976 when King Carl Gustaf married Queen Silvia and reassured with the knowledge she was pregnant, King Carl Gustaf gave his full consent to marry Lilian and still maintain his titles and keep his rights to the succession.
