Former Prince Sigvard remarries

October 26, 1943

Sigvard Bernadotte was married today in a civil ceremony in Copenhagen to Sonja Robberts, the daughter of a Copenhagen ship owner. This is the second marriage for both.
Sigvard, a grandson of King Gustav V, lost his royal title and right of succession in 1934, when he married a commoner Erika Patzek, the daughter of a Berlin soap manufacturer.
For several years, Sigvard Bernadotte, worked in Hollywood's film industry.
His sister, Queen Ingrid of Denmark, hosted a luncheon for the couple after the wedding.
