Prince Carl weds Swedish commoner

November 10, 1954

Prince Carl Bernadotte married a Swedish commoner, Anna Margareta Lindner, in a church in a Stockholm suburb today, reports Reuters.

Prince Carl is a cousin of King Gustaf VI Adolf, and the brother of the late Queen Astrid of Belgium.  He lost his royal title in 1937 after he married a commoner, but was created a Prince by his brother-in-law, King Leopold III of the Belgians later that year.
