The Office of the Marshal of the Realm is headed by Fredrik Wersäll, who is accountable to The King for the activities of the entire Royal Court organization.

Magazine Hänt has asked from the court why Madeleine doesn't attend today's events.
- She is in USA, therefore she doesn't attend, said information officer Ulrika Näsholm from the court.

Why oh why are they massacring this otherwise beautiful and appropriate song? (I Dreamed me a Dream.)
Anybody got a hook? Make that two hooks!

Good grief, she's howling!!

A curiosity about the the Riksdag is that the MP's are seated by constituency and not party. So, all MP's from the City of Stockholm constituency are seated together, and the MP's from Dalarna County constituency and so on and on. Members of the government in the very front to the right, seen from the Speaker.

The exit march, 'Grand march' by Charles Voss is the same used as entrance march during the State Opening of Parliament in the Hall of State at the Royal Palace.

Are the Drabant Guards (Livdrabanterne) making an appearance? I had quite looked forward to them. Being a uniform nerd.

A question - Is there a particular reason for the black and white color scheme for the royal ladies at the daytime activities that are part of the State Opening of Parliament?

IIRC, it’s the last vestige of the old “court dress” which was a specific design of black and white gown that women used to be required to wear to certain events, including this one.

Thanks for your answer. I hadn't thought of that as a reason, but it makes sense.

I´m not that good at swedish, but as far as I understood the King´s speech, he doesn´t seem to read new legislation from the government, but gives a historic summary of parliamentary life in Sweden and some words of encouragement, right?!

I´m sorry, nothing against the King, it was not his fault he was stripped from all his powers, but I wonder how sensible this, forgive me, sorry role of the monarchy is at this particular event...?!

I think only the monarchs in Britain, Norway and the Netherlands have a really vital and meaningful part to play at this ceremony (I don´t know about Spain?!?).

Prior to 1975, the King was still the formal head of the executive branch and he actually read a speech from the throne much like the one in the UK or in the Netherlands. Nowadays, he only declares the parliamentary session open at the request of the Speaker of the Riksdag, as required in the Parliament Act.


In a way, however, I think King's speech in Sweden is actually more meaningful now than in the UK or in the Netherlands because he is not simply reading a speech written by someone else about a legislative agenda he may or may not personally agree with. Instead, the Swedish King, despite having to stay politically neutral, has the opportunity to convey his own thoughts and ideas to the members of Parliament.

The theme of the King's speech is often a broad stroke on an important subject like the environment or immigration. This year he focused on the importance of protecting our democracy. Something that, as we see around the world and in Sweden, is very much a contemporary issue and an issue that's growing more and more important. The King is in general successful in staying clear of siding with any political parties although his clear stance on democracy, the environment and immigration in itself can be interpreted as choosing a side. Especially by those who has the dismantling of the liberal democracy, denies climate change and are against immigration.

The Riksdag's new working year - the 2019/20 Riksdag session - will open on Tuesday 10 September. The King will open the Riksdag session at the request of the Speaker. Follow the opening via the Riksdag webcast service and social media.
The day will begin at 11 a.m. with a roll-call of the 349 members of the Riksdag, prior to the opening of the Riksdag session.
The opening ceremony will start in the Chamber at 2 p.m. At the request of the Speaker Andreas Norlén, King Carl XVI Gustaf will declare the Riksdag session open. Prime Minister Stefan Löfven (Social Democratic Party) will then read the Statement of Government Policy, presenting the Government's intended policies for the coming year.
There will be various musical performances before and during the ceremony, including an appearance by a surprise artist. In addition to members of the Riksdag, the Royal Family, the Government and other invited guests will attend the opening. In the evening there will be a concert at Konserthuset in Stockholm.
This year's opening ceremony is the fourth consecutive ceremony to have a regional theme. This year, the focus will be on the five Swedish provinces of Härjedalen, Medelpad, Hälsingland, Dalarna and Gästrikland. The theme will be represented in the programme, the food and the decorations.
