King Carl XVI Gustaf uniform.
 
Hello I'm new to this blog and I was not sure if there was an existing thread about this, so I thought I'd create a new one.

Why doesn't the king wear this uniform anymore?1975SwedishSV-QueenElizabethIIKingCarlXVIGustafandPCPhilip.jpg photo by Mr_PeterMichael | Photobucket

The one he wears now seems so much plainer in comparison to this one.

It's not a swedish military uniform. It's a british. The picture is from the State visit to United Kingdom in 1975. King Carl Gustaf is an honorary admiral in the UK Royal Navy.
You can see Prince Philip wearing the same uniform.
