I have to say that I'm a bit surprised to see Sofia there (Yes, I know she was on the guest list, but still...) and even more surprised that she looks so good. It's hard to believe that she gave birth just 11 days ago.

Such a great music at Te Deum, and now the military bands marching, I love that.

Zapping by I see the changing of the guard is coming up, so let's have a brief look at uniforms.
https://i.ytimg.com/vi/qv5gIB7Cfaw/maxresdefault.jpg

These soldiers are dragoons, light dragoons to be exact and as such the are armed with carbines, Mausers.
Being light dragoons they are issued with sabres and not the heavier pallask, i.e. a straight, single-edged sword.
Dragoons were initially mounted infantry, or rather rapid-deployment-forces armed with full length muskets. Later on they evolved into all-purpose cavalry and later on to light and heavy dragoons. So light dragoons are all-purpose lighter cavalry.

The uniforms are directly inspired by 1800's Prussian uniforms.

The soldiers in dark uniforms are infantry of the line and armed with Mauser rifles. They are also inspired by 1800's Prussian uniforms.

There are four Swedish guards units. Can't remember the names off hand, but they are: light dragoons, infantry of the line, grenadiers and cuirassiers.

I think I just spotted the danish crown prince couple in the royal crowd. They must have just arrived from Denmark. Busy days for them!

I have seen the courtyard pictures and I see only Victoria, Daniel & Estelle hanging out with the rest of the royals. Why isn't the rest of the SRF with them?

It was only a short moment, and then the royal family went to stand at a row for the ceremonies. Besides, the photographers have a hurry to load photos, we may get more photos of that mingle with royals later.

I saw Crown Princess Mary taking a photo from Victoria, Frederik and little Oscar. I wonder if Frederik will be Oscar's godfather?

Everybody looks lovely. Awesome to see everyone on the livestream. Pity except for Filip and Mathilde, Frederik and Mary, no other younger royals are attending.

SVT's Royal expert Roger Lundgren just said at SVT, that at the banquet tiaras can be worn, so maybe we will see tiaras after all. Swedish etiquette expert Magdalena Ribbing also said on this week's Svensk Damtidning, that during the last few years it has become acceptable to wear tiaras with black tie.
