Frederick died in unfortunate circumstances. During an overnight stay in an hotel in Hamburg, on his way home from Nice where he had visited a health resort, he died all of a sudden during one of the anonymous, unaccompanied city walks that he had always enjoyed (one source mentions whilst visiting a house of ill repute). Only later was it realised the body was that of the King of Denmark.

|3.13114 - QVD||Prince||Bertil of Sweden (Duke of Halland)||1912||1997||Lilian Davies||1915||2013||Bertil's marriage to Lilian Davies was an exception to the rule in that he was not deprived of his title when he married. Bertil had known Lilian since 1943 and they lived discreetly together since 1946 but did not marry until thirty years later in 1976. Bertil choose not to marry Lilian at an earlier date since he would have been deprived of his title as happened with other Prince's of Sweden who married commoners.
Bertil's elder brother Hereditary Prince Gustaf Adolf ""Edmund"" of Sweden died in 1947 in an aeroplane accident and it was likely that Bertil would become Regent for his nephew Carl (born 1946 and future King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden) should Bertil's father King Gustaf VI Adolf (1882-1973) die. In the event King Gustaf VI Adolf lived long enough for his grandson to come of age when he succeeded as King of Sweden. Carl Gustaf having married a commoner himself (Silvia Renate Sommerlath) on 19 June 1976 approved Bertil's and Lilian's marriage and they were finally married on 7 December 1976.
