The funeral of the late Queen Sophie of the Hellenes was held today at Schloss Friedrichshof at Kronberg, the residence of her youngest daughter, Margarete, the wife of the Landgrave of Hesse, according to the Associated Press.
Three children of her older brother, the former Kaiser Wilhelm II, were among the mourners. They were former Crown Prince Wilhelm, Prince Eitel Friedrich and the Duchess of Brunswick-Lüneburg.
The Greek Orthodox service was followed by a Lutheran service. Wilhelm II sent "a wreath of laurel" to the funeral.
Queen Sophie's body will be taken tomorrow to Florence, Italy, for final burial.
