Mr. Bengtsson also performed the duties of Regent ad Interim between 2–3 July 1988. When the King of Sweden is prevented to perform his duties as Head of State, for reasons of illness, travel or other, and when no other member of the Royal House, who is in the line of succession, is present within the realm, the Government issues a decree that establishes a Regent ad interim who will uphold the duties as Head of State for the duration of His Majesty's incapacity.
He died on 12 April 2000. He is buried with his wife Anna-Lisa (1919–1991) in Varberg.
