Mourners set for Queen Louise's funeral

March 22, 1926

King Haakon VII, King Gustav V and "probably the Prince of Wales" will attend the funeral of the Dowager Queen Louise, who died two days ago from heart disease, "super induced by pneumonia," according to the Associated Press.

King Christian X is "deeply affected" by his mother's death.   Earlier today, while walking from his palace to "to that of the Dowager Queen," he met several press photographers.  He shook their hands and said: "This is the home of my childhood, which now disappears."
