For comparison, here is a video from the solemn opening of the Riksdag 1974, which was the last time that ceremony was held.

Riksdagens högtidliga öppnande 1974 | SVT Play

It doesn't happen much in the first half of the video so you can skip ahead to around 29 minutes into the video, that's when things start happening.

Thank you. It was a great video, with not only the King and Princess Christina but also Prince Bertil and Olof Palme. Hjärtligt tack.
