Sweden has been home to several members of the Scandinavian royal families over the past couple of days as they descended on the country to mark the Golden Jubilee of King Carl Gustaf.
Events held so far have included an opera performance at Drottingholm Palace outside Stockholm, and on Friday, and a church service at the Royal Palace. Carl’s Golden Jubilee is made all the more special given that he is the first monarch in Swedish history to have celebrated a Golden Jubilee, with him ascending to the throne on 15 September 1973.
His reign is currently the second-longest of any living European royal, only being beaten out by his cousin, Queen Margrethe of Denmark, who has been in attendance at the events. Marking Gustaf’s special day on Friday, a banquet was held in his honour and the royals all glammed up in their finest for the event.
