From Time magazine:

Royal Wedding

Monday, Mar. 25, 1929

Gamle Oslo. Until last week no royal marriage had taken place in Oslo since the 16th Century, when King James VI of Scotland there espoused Princess Anne of Denmark and Norway in 1589. Historic Gamle† Oslo was founded by potent Harold Haardraada about 1050, and petite Princess Martha comes to reign—eventually—over a proud little city which was already old when her own rich and extensive Stockholm was founded upon mud flats and granite in 1255 by Birger, Jarl (Earl) of Bjelbo. Last week, on the very site of the Jarl's first great hall, in a palace blazing with made-in-Sweden light bulbs, the preliminary, pre-nuptial ball was given by Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden. Over from Oslo for this event dashed Norway's spruce Crown Prince Olaf. This time he came openly and gaily, not as he clandestinely used to come (while courting Princess Martha) with his hat turned down, his coat turned up, and his eyes masked behind a skier's blue snow-goggles.
