Question? its true that Kronprinzessin Cecilie`s nickname was "Cilly"?. Thanks in advanced!

Cilly is still a common nickname for Cecilie (Cecilia or C├Ącilia) in Germany. In Bavaria a lot of farmwomen are called "Cilly"... :-)
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.
