Thank you for the links to the video clips! It is very interesting seeing what these events are like that happened before I was even born.

Silvia's expressions look like Madeline's in that wedding video clip.

I really wonder who the bridemaids, flower girls, and best men were, who attended the wedding, where they got married and where they celebrated the wedding...
does anyone know things like these?

Does someone have a plan/picture of the church (Storykyrkan?) from the inside?

If anyone else is interested:
They were
Carmita ( Ralf Sommerlath´s daughter)
James Ambler( Princess Margaretha´s son)
Hubertus von Hohenzollern (Princess Brigitta´s son)
Hélène Silfverschiöld (Princess Desiree´s daughter)
Sophie Sommerlath (Walter Sommerlath Jr.´s daugher)
Amelie Middelschulte (is the daughter of Silvia´s friend Beate Middelschulte)

Ritva told me!

What a wonderful treat of nostalgia to see these pictures. Silvia was certainly the radiant bride that day-and the years have been very kind to her since, too. Lovely, lovely pictures. Thanks!

Det sa bara klick
– sen fick vi vår Silvia


Det är den 12 mars 1976 och det går en rysning av välbehag genom landets rojalister.
Äntligen satt de där i den gula salongen, i den så kallade förlovningssoffan där kungens fyra systrar satt när de presenterade sina fästmän inför TV-kamerorna.
Och lite här och var så log man när fästmön Silvia log och kungen på frågan om hur det började också log och sa:
- Det sa bara klick! Och sen har det fortsatt att klicka.
Det var i München 1972 det började klicka. Det var olympiska spel och en viss fröken Silvia Sommerlath hade till uppgift att som olympiavärdinna se till att en viss svensk kronprins från Sverige skulle trivas.
Det lyckades hon med till den milda grad att prinsen blev betagen och bad adjutanten ringa upp om en träff.
Och träffen resulterade alltså i ett klick som i sin tur resulterade i en fyra år lång katt och råttalek med pressen.

Vem var flickan?
Redan sommaren 1973 hade en påpasslig fotograf tagit en bild på kungen med en mörk vacker flicka bredvid sig i porschen på Öland.
Men vem var hon?
Det hade gått rykten förstås men ingen visste vem hon var förrän den 12 mars.
Då hade både Silvia och kungen länge tvekat.
Skulle Silvia som var en ”vanlig” flicka klara pressen och anpassa sig till drottningrollen.
Kungen frågade till slut sin farbror prins Bertil som träffat Silvia flera gånger och som omedelbart svarade.
- Om du inte gifter dig med flickan är du ett nöt. Sveriges folk kommer att älska henne.
Så nu satt de där i soffan framför alla reportrar och någon frågade vad Silvia hade som andra flickor saknar.
- Hon är Silvia, svarade kungen.

Sagobröllop
Och Silvia frågade om hon hade någon drottning som förebild och då svarade hon blixtsnabbt.
– Nej, men jag har en kung.
Prins Bertil hade förstås rätt. Svenska folket kapitulerade.
Det blev ett sagobröllop den 19 juni och 180 000 människor kantade gatorna kring kortegen och det var nog inte bara inbitna rojalister som veknade när de såg det unga paret.
Och medan kungen var kungen med svenska folket blev drottningen Silvia. Och nog hade väl republikanerna länge hoppats men nu när kungen hade sin Silvia vid sin sida så vittrade snabbt de republikanska fästningarna och monarkins ställning befästes.
Och idag dryga tjugo år efter det överraskande bröllopet för den republikanska klubben en tynande tillvaro med bara 170 medlemmar.
Så kan det gå när en flicka från folket vinner både kungen och hela kungariket.



Ingen har sett en vackrare stad i ett märkligare land, och det var minst 100 miljoner över hela världen som tittade. Kamerorna var följsamma in i minsta detalj, som hade de programmerats av salig Mått-Johansson, och alla detaljerna var valda med en estetisk urskiljning som helt simpelt måste betecknas som mästerlig. Till och med den klart vedervärdiga Sergelfontänen med sin kuriösa himlastormare i färgat glas gav ett skimmer av ogenomtränglig gåta åt denna den skönaste av huvudstäder. Längre i nationell PR kan man inte komma.
Klart att också hela paraden av hästburna livgardister innanför kyrkan bidrar till att korrigera bilden av ett Sverige som ett land styrt av röda huliganer. Med ett sådant uppbåd av regala grannlåter kan inte ens Förenta staternas republikanska svenskätare - jag hoppas att även de har abonnerat på denna historia - påstå att vi är en vidrig socialistisk diktatur.”

My favourite of the wedding portraits from King Carl XVI Gustaf & Queen Silvia's wedding - no words needed. Picture taken by Lennart Nilsson:

What a fun event to remember...I have one question and one comment though.

First, where did the King and Queen go in the boat that can be seen in the pictures? I know that the Storkyrkan is right next to the Royal Palace, so it seems weird that they took a boat.

And also, if you notice in the pictures posted above by GrandDuchess, in a few of them it show the Monogram of the King and Queen, but it's not the same as the monogram they use today...I thought that was interesting that it changed somewhere along the way...I'll try to see if I can find a picture of their newer monogram.

In these pictures you can the see their two different monograms, one from their wedding day in 1975, the other from the state visit to Iceland in 2004 (over the Icelandic First Lady's shoulder)
