Stefan Löfven today lost the vote of confidence in the Riksdag, loosing with 142-204. He is now acting Prime Minister.

The Speaker will now, starting on Thursday, seek support in the Riksdag for a new Prime Minister and government.

This doesn't affect the Opening of Parliament. The government lead by Prime minister Löfven will remain in place until either a new one has been approved by the Parliament or there has been a re-election.
Since this could take months, especially in the present messy political situation, the newly elected Parliament has to be opened to be able to function and elect a new government.
The old parliament does not have a mandate to elect a new government.

The government declaration is held either at the Opening of Parliament if it's a sitting government (between elections) or when a new government is approved by the Parliament. The latter does not have to coincide with the Opening ceremony.

No there will not, as I wrote in the first post. This is how it is every fourth year after an election. Last time, in 2014, Fredrik Reinfeldt resigned as a Prime Minister on Election night, but remained in office until the Riksdag had appointed Stefan Löfven, that took place after the Opening of Parliament (in the beginning of October, if I recall correctly).

I see that some of the women are wearing the national costume. Is that is a Swedish context considered "conservative" or even "nationalist" or is it something that anyone would wear regardless of where that person belongs on the political spectrum?

Among the women wearing national costume, is four from the government; The Minister for Finance Magdalena Andersson, The Minister for the Environment Karolina Skoog, The Minister for Migration and Deputy Minister for Justice Heléne Fritzon, as well as the Minister for Upper Secondary School and Adult Education Anna Ekström. All of the belonging to the Social Democratic Part or the Green Party.

My reflection is that it has become more popular to wear the national costume t the Opening of Parliament the last couple of years, and not that it should be considered 'nationalist' or 'conservative'. Of course there was some debate a couple of years ago when famous MP's of the Sweden Democrats (e.g. Jimmie Åkesson and Björn Söder) wearing national costumes. This year they don't wear their costumes, so it might be some kind of "taking back"the meaning of national costumes from the Sweden Democrats.

Thank you. I notice that a number of men are also wearing a regional costume.

The soldiers lined up outside are from the Royal Guard. They are grenadiers and their uniforms are clearly inspired by Prussian uniforms from mid to late 1800's.
They are armed with the Swedish produced infantry carbine version of the Mauser rifle, 6.5 mm IIRC. Slightly unusual since guardsmen and grenadiers are taller than average.

ADDED.

I also notice a number of people with a flag. I assume they represent the various lens (provinces)? It seems to be optional whether you want to wear the traditional costume from that province or not.

I see the SRF will arrive in horse draw carriages, escorted by dragoons.

Interestingly quite a few of the dragoons are women, 200 years ago dragoons would have been average sized men, but we grow taller...
They must be heavy dragoons, because they are armed with straight swords, pallasks.
Light dragoons would also have been issued a helmet, but with a "casque", meaning that the head-adornment would "flow" backwards like the mane on a horse, and not up and down like this more Prussian head-adornment.

What function has the Marshal of the Realm? - In medieval context that would make him the defense chief (marechal). But in modern context?

The Office of the Marshal of the Realm is headed by Fredrik Wersäll, who is accountable to The King for the activities of the entire Royal Court organization.

A curiosity about the the Riksdag is that the MP's are seated by constituency and not party. So, all MP's from the City of Stockholm constituency are seated together, and the MP's from Dalarna County constituency and so on and on. Members of the government in the very front to the right, seen from the Speaker.

The exit march, 'Grand march' by Charles Voss is the same used as entrance march during the State Opening of Parliament in the Hall of State at the Royal Palace.
