King Carl XVI Gustaf's Enthronement; September 15, 1973
 
1 Attachment(s)
On the 15th September 1973, HM King Gustav VI Adolf died (1882-1973), having acceded in 1950 on the death of his own father, HM King Gustav V (1858-1950). Prince Gustav Adolf, had been killed in 1947, and his son Prince Carl Gustaf had, in 1973, been crown prince for 23 years. The King of Sweden had maintained a court quite full of protocol and tradition. The enthronement ceremony, yet very solemn but more discreet than in the years of King Gustav VI Adolf’s reign, took place on the 19th September, in the Hall of State of the Royal Palace in Stockholm.

In another room of the Royal Palace, the King presided over the Cabinet meeting, and after having announced what his title and name would be, he swore the King's oath from 1809 called "Konungaförsäkran" and then he signed the enthronement documents.

1) The King with his sisters wearing the traditional mourning dresses of the Swedish Court. From left: (HRH Princess Christina, HRH Princess Birgitta, Princess Desirée Baroness Silfverschiöld and Princess Margaretha Mrs. Ambler. He was warmly cheered by a several-thousand strong crowd, despite some unpopularity of himself as a Crown Prince.

2) The King and his sisters.

3) The King standing in front of the magnificent silver throne, which had the royal robes over it, to the right the crown and to the left the sceptre in cushions, the King spoke to the nation in a moving speech. He said:

“I’ll put my efforts in being able to respond to the burden of exigencies that fall over a monarch, nowadays. My grandfather, admired and beloved, had become a symbol of the modern monarchy. I am firmly decided to follow his example.”

Having the Prince, Bertil, by his side, he confidently showed his wish to pursue his grandfather’s work. The solemn ceremony gave an imposing touch by all the uniforms of the King’s personal bodyguards, who stood beside the canopy.

Why was he unpopular as crown prince. What happened or what did he say that didn&#39;t set right?

Hmm...a little hasty with the coronation...four days after his grandpa died? Wouldn&#39;t they have waited a few weeks..a month? Wow...

I have heard about his unpopularity too ..... what was it all about?

What I heard was from a Swedish citizen who said he objected to some comment by the King that poor people need to learn to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. He found it offensive since King Carl Gustaf has never worked a day in his life. He also related it in some way to the King&#39;s love of hunting -- birds? I don&#39;t remember the relevant details now.

At the same time, he also admitted that his opinion was in a minority and most of the Swedish people were solidly behind the royal family.
------------------------------------------------------

In the 21st century of disposable people, places and things, I want/need to see the royal families continued. The rules of existence are different now than before and I don&#39;t think a lot of royals realize that.

Diana, Princess of Wales, knew what was required. Of the crown princes, I see the most potential in CP Haakon, who as I understand it, told his people that they could accept his wife, or he would no longer be their prince. That is so admirable in putting family values first and foremost -- something that will be required of all royal families if they are to survive. (If Prince Charles ever gets to become king, I&#39;ll give him 6 months before the people revolt).

The other thing that is so important is real focus on some charity actually needed by the common people. Sorry to say, this doesn&#39;t include opening some museum with million dollar collections of art or china, and it doesn&#39;t include support of some hoity-toity fantasies of promoting some architectural style.

I just wanted to make a point about the "hasty coronation". This is quite common I think. If you saw the Spanish Enthronement of Juan Carolos y Sophia, you would have notice that the entronement was held on the same day as Franco&#39;s funeral. After the entronement, Sophia put on a black coat and attended Franco&#39;s lying in State.

this was 31 years ago today

I know i am coming rather late to this thread, but, this ceremony is not a coronation, but an oath-taking. In the UK, the Sovereign does a similar ceremony before the Privy Council, with no TV coverage. The actual solemn coronation follows later. But as Sweden no longer has a coronation, the oath-taking ( announcement of title, name, motto) etc. takes place at the beginning of the reign and there is no further ceremony.
