Gala Jewels: Princess Lilian of Sweden


This weekend, the Bernadottes marked the centenary of one of their most beloved members: the late Princess Lilian, Duchess of Halland. The anniversary was marked with an exhibition of her clothing, including some of the lovely gowns she wore for Swedish royal events.
