Actually she´s already older...such a jump over one generation can make a big difference. It can easily be, that poor Carl Gustaf has to sit 60 years on the throne ("poor" in the sense of working so long...I hope he´s getting old, but I wish he could retire like his colleagues in the Netherlands). His daughter would be then around 55 years. An age, which many women choose to retire. Victoria talks much about her being a queen, but I guess she (and many of her colleagues) will do most work as crown prince(sse)s. And when we are honest, most ppl in Europe´s Monarchies don´t follow the life and duties of the Monarch mostly, but the liVes and duties of the crown princely couple (but psst, don´t tell CG )

What an interesting thread. I should like to see more photos of Crownings. I'm only acquainted to the ones of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain and the late Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, that was so interesting and long.

Vanesa.

Strangely enough Enthronements in Europe are a pretty national affair. That is logical, of course, because it is about a new head of state and this is a business between the elected representatives of the nation and the new monarch.

Exception is the lavish Coronation ceremony in Britain which attracts lots of royals from outside the United Kingdom.

In Belgium there were no foreign royals when King Albert II was sworn in. In Luxembourg there was attention from Queen Beatrix (from the related House of Orange-Nassau, formerly ruling in Luxembourg) and from King Albert II (sister of the Grand Duchess and uncle to the new Grand Duke).

In the Netherlands there is a large royal crowd, but all of them are colleagues from the new Sovereign: Heirs and Heiresses or (when too young) other representatives. For an example in 1980 in Amsterdam were The Prince of Wales, The Crown Prince of Norway, The Prince of Liège, the Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg and more. But no heads of state.

The most sober is, without doubt, Denmark: just an announcement by the Statsminister. And that was it.

That would have to be the only thing about Denmark I do not like so much. If ever there was a monarchy to pull off a coronation after the British, then surely it would be the Danes

I think it has to do with the fact that the swearing-in is mostly 2 or 2 days after the death of the former monarch. Only in Belgium it was later only 2 days after the funeral of King Baudouin. In the UK the proclamation of the monarch is also not attended by other Family-Members.

I wonder how would they do it in the Netherlands if Queen beatrix dies suddenly in lets say 2 years and is still reigning. Would Willem-Alexander by first sworn in Parliament and they would later have the Ceremony in Amsterdam ??

Interesting indeed! There has not been a death of a reigning Monarch in the Netherlands since the death of King William III in the 1890's.
As for Sweden, when the time comes, with that pseudo-republican Constitution in force I wonder if the future Queen Victoria will have the same colorful ceremony as her father on 1973?

It should be understood though that enthronements (or swearing-in ceremonies) are quite different and distinct from a coronation. A coronation is a ceremony during which a monarch is invested with regal power through, inter alia, the placement of a crown upon his or her head.
All swearing-in ceremonies take place shortly after (within a few days) a monarch's death and, therefore, are somber events. In contrast, a coronation takes usually place at least a few months later. In QEII's case, her father's death occurred on February 6, 1952, while her coronation took place on June 2, 1953! The delay is explained by the fact that, in Britain, the law provides that the throne never becomes vacant and a new monarch succeeds the old immediately (and automatically). Indeed, the princess Elizabeth became The Queen, while touring Africa with the Duke of Edinburgh, the very moment her father died.

Coronations, in contrast to, and distinction from, swearing-in ceremonies are a major international event with many heads of state attending and a joyous occasion for the public. Coronation is not practised anymore in Europe except in Great Britain.

I also wonder if Victoria will have the ceremony in the hall of state. I really hope so if she not will be crowned because a new monarch not sitting on the throne is not a real new monarch (at least in my eyes).

As an alternative ceremony it would be a great idea to introduce a church blessing ceremony like the "signingen" in norway.

But I guess there is still a simple ceremony in the hall of state avaliable as Victoria held her majority speech there 12 years ago.

I would have thought that she ought to be enthroned ceremonially, like her father. It is a constitutional requirement, isn't it?

The pictures look a bit like a real coronation rather than an enthronement/oath-taking ceromony. Why have many countries got rid of the tradtional coronations? Are royal houses more Consicous of critisism? Trying to get rid of the old and outdated look?
