: 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 ?
: I would say next to Princess Sibylla of
: Sweden was Prince Félix of Luxembourg.
Well, after seeing these photos I would say next to Princess Sibylla was one of the following couples: Margrave Berthold and Margravine Theodora of Baden or Hereditary Grand Duke Georg Donatus and Hereditary Grand Duchess Cecilia of Hesse (the ladies being sisters of the future Duke of Edinburgh).
Next to one of these ladies maybe two of the following Princes: Kiril of Bulgaria, Charles of Belgium or Félix of Luxembourg. I guess the 3 attended the ceremony.
: Is it known the Duke of Aosta or any other
: member of the Italian Royal Family attended
: the ceremony?
: How about representatives from Romania?
: Towards the right would seem to be Prince
: Nicholas of Greece.
: Next to Prince Nicholas was his niece
: Princess Eugenia of Greece.

: It is really difficult to find clear
: 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):
