The ladies wore black today as the court is in mourning due to death of the kings aunt in law,Countess Gunnila Bernadotte af Wisborg.

I'm not sure about other years.

The ladies of the Royal Family is always in black and white during the State Opening of the Parliament as a reference to the old court dresses. The court dress was worn until 1974 when the Opening took place in the Hall of State at the Royal Palace.

Victoria nodding off a little bit
I think all parents can relate, or anyone who has been in somewhat boring meetings

Is there some reason why the public are absent? Not one person was standing waiting to see the procession from the palace.

I know the Royal House has managed to add some more decorum (black and white dresscode, the use of carriages, etc.) but the Opening of Parliament is still extremely sober for my eyes.

Anyway, it is better than in Belgium and Luxembourg (no any State Opening at all with the monarch involved) or in Spain (only the first session of the new Parliament) or in Denmark (the monarch is an onlooker and has no active role).

Royal ladies are all dressed in black and white as per usual. Didn't Victoria wore this jacket both times for the opening of the Riksdag when she was pregnant? Makes me wonder especially seeing how Victoria was [once again] nodding off during the service

Great to hear some Abba music at the opening of the parliament! For those of you following this live: Johan Norberg and Nils Landgren is well known jazz musicians. This is their unplugged version.
