Yes.
A church visit in the morning, a carriage ride from the Palace to the parliament building, the Opening of Parliament ceremony itself and the concert at the Royal Opera at night are the annual events on that day in Sweden.

Here you can see the royal family arriving at the parliament and follow the king's speech in which he also gives his thanks for the warmth towards the royal family in conjunction with Victoria's and Daniel's wedding.

This was a very nice video. Victoria is so cute when she smiles and takes Daniel's hand when people start spontaneous applauses for them.

before 1975 The ceremony took place in the castle in the so called "parlament hall" and it was a very grandeur event.


Now to answer your question, The black clothes has it's origin from the ladies court-dresses.

Those were the days :)

Also in Finland all the people wear black or at least very dark clothes at the opening and closing the parliament every year. It´s a tradition, as it is a solemn and stately event.
