15 degrees cold, sun and sparkling snow. The Jokkmokk market has been celebrated for a total of 415 years and today, on the Sami national day, the royal couple was in place to put a golden edge on the folk party.
- It was perfect weather when they came, cold and really crispy, the sun was really sparkling in the snow crystals. But now it has become a little warmer and the royal couple does not look too frozen, says Malin Andersson at the county administrative board in Norrbotten.
Queen Silvia sat next to her and smiled in her beautiful Sami costume.
- She wore it already this morning when she arrived, and she has received a lot of compliments, Malin says.

Court website
On Thursday, February 6, the King and Queen visited Jokkmokk in connection with the Sami National Day.
The visit began with the royal couple meeting with the Sami Parliament's Chairman Per-Olof Nutti, Sirge's Sami Village Chairman Mikael Kuhmunen and Jåhkågaska's Chairman Jan-Erik Länta, who informed about the reindeer industry's conditions and challenges regarding forestry, aquaculture and mining.
In conjunction with lunch, the royal couple met, among other things, the Sami Parliament's Board and Chairmans.
After lunch, the King and Queen visited Jokkmokk market which has a long history and is regarded as an unbroken tradition for more than 400 years. In the market, the Sami national day was noticed and from a scene made of snow, The King's song was performed at the Lule Sami as well as the Sami national anthem. The King then gave a speech where he said:
"The Sami story is an important part of the Swedish. Sami traditions in everything from music to crafts enrich Swedish culture. We are reminded of this, not least here at Jokkmokk's market - a meeting place with over 400 years of history."
Sami education center
At the Sami educational center, the King and Queen got to participate in a student exhibition made by the second-year students of the craft line. The center was founded in 1942 and has since then provided education to the Sami people.
The Mountain and Sami Museum Ájtte
At the Ájtte Museum, the King and Queen received a display of a Sami handicraft exhibition and met three Sami entrepreneurs and artists. The Museum Ájtte shows exhibits about the nature of the mountain region and the Sami culture from the national border in the west and down in the forest land, 1,000 km from south to north.

According to the calendar, the king and queen attended yesterday at the Assembly Evening.
The Royal Court Parish is a parish within the Church of Sweden, and is made up of the Royal Family, those who work or have worked at the Royal Court or the Royal Staff, and their families. The parish church for the members is the Royal Chapel.
An assembly evening is held twice a year in the Bernadotte Library, which is regularly attended by The King and Queen who host the evening. A talk on a topical subject is always given on these occasions, and Court Organist Mary Ljungquist Hén arranges the music.
