In the front row of the upper box next to the young Swedish couple is, I seem to remember, the representative from Italy.
Possibly the Duke of Aosta ?
Towards the right would seem to be Prince Nicholas of Greece.
: It is really difficult to find clear pictures
: of the upper gallery of the Abbey's choir
: during the 1937 Coronation. Obviously, the
: lower gallery, packed with the major members
: of the Royal family, was a bigger focus of
: the attention for the photographers...
: The better picture I could find, so far, is
: this one, from Alamy's website:
: An enlarged picture of the upper gallery
: gives the following result. I suppose that
: Mrs Greville is the first lady on the left
: of the third row, but even with this
: enlarged picture, I can't identify which
: head ornament Mrs Greville (if she is Mrs
: Greville) is wearing:
: On the left of the first row, I think we can
: see Prince Gustaf Adolf and Princess Sibylla
: of Sweden (the parents of current King Carl
: XVI Gustaf of Sweden). I guess that Princess
: Sibylla is wearing Empress Joséphine's Cameo
: tiara. Can anyone identify other guests?
: Other of the royal guests were seated in the
: stalls of the choir of the Abbey: Crown
: Prince Olav of Norway (later King Olav V)
: and Crown Princess Märtha (wearing Queen
: Josefina of Sweden's emerald parure), Crown
: Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden (later King
: Gustaf VI Adolf) and Crown Princess (later
: Queen) Louise (wearing the large Braganza
: diamond tiara), Crown Prince Frederik of
: Denmark (later King Frederik IX) and Crown
: Princess (later Queen) Ingrid (wearing the
: Pearl Poire tiara?) and Prince Regent Paul
: of Yugoslavia and Princess Olga (wearing the
: ruby and diamond laurel parure, now with
: Queen Anne-Marie of Greece):
