There is a general tendency in the Swedish language to put the name of the female in a couple before that of the male. But it's always the King & the Queen/Silvia & Victoria/the Crown Princess & Daniel/Prince Daniel.

It's also due to a better flow. Like you always say Lennon-McCartney, never the other way around.

At Expressen today:
Due to corona restrictions, the Riksdag allows all 349 members to attend. But restrictions have been introduced in the number of guests who may participate in the ceremony in the Stockholm Cathedral and in the Riksdag. The restrictions mean that Carl Philip and Sofia cannot attend.
Margareta Thorgren says that it is still a pandemic, so even if all members of the Riksdag are to be in place, it is still a downsizing.
Last year, the Crown Princess couple also had to stay at home. But this year, their traditional presence can be resumed. Thorgren says that they always make a new plan for each year, but they don't plan the opening of the Riksdag so many years ahead. Last year it was in a completely different way, with very large restrictions. Now it is a little more open and then the Crown Princess couple can participate. What next year looks like, they will get back to.
Madeleine and Chris O'Neill do not have the opportunity to attend.
- They are in the USA, says Thorgren.

The King's speech, he said among other things
This year it is 400 years since King Gustaf II Adolf founded Gothenburg, Borås, Sundsvall, Luleå and Piteå in one and the same year. Today, hundreds of thousands of Sweden's inhabitants live in these cities. There are companies, authorities and universities.(...)
Honorable Members, you have a great task in equipping our country and our social institutions for the future. To think in long lines - just as King Gustaf II Adolf did when he founded cities.
His daughter, Queen Kristina, wrote more than a thousand aphorisms during her lifetime. I have attached one of them in particular to:
The happiness and prosperity of a country stands and falls with the knowledge and education we give our young people.

This year, the opening of the Riksdag session will be highlighting the centenary of the breakthrough of democracy in Sweden with universal and equal suffrage, and in particular how the first five women entered the Riksdag.
When the Riksdag opened on 10 January 1922, five women took their seats as members of parliament. Kerstin Hesselgren, Elisabeth Tamm, Agda Östlund, Bertha Wellin and Nelly Thüring made history as Sweden’s first five female members of the Riksdag.
14.00 The ceremony in the Chamber starts. Performance by musicians from the Swedish Royal Navy Band. At the request of the Speaker, H.M. The King declares the 2022/23 Riksdag session open. The programme in the Chamber also includes the Royal Anthem, musical performances by by Susanna Stern and Adolf Fredrik's flickkör as well as musicians from Marinens Musikkår, the National Anthem and exit music.

Why does the Opening of Parliament take place now and not when there is a new Government? Doesn't make much sense when the Prime Minster make a speech in Parliament when nobody knows how long she will remain in office.

The Prime Minister didn't give a speech at the Opening of the Riksdag. At the request if the Speaker, H.M. The King declared the 2022/23 Riksdag session open. The ceremony also included songs and music by Susanna Stern and the Adolf Fredrik's Girls' Choir and musicians from the Band of the Swedish Navy.

Silvia ger talmannen andreas Norlén nobben _*Svensk Dam

The King reminisced at his speech January 11, 1974, then the first time he opened the Riksdag.
The King said at his speech among other things
"Now we face new trials. Many big and serious issues must be resolved. The development is uncertain: security policy, economic, environmental."
"In the coming years you will be faced with many important and difficult decisions. Take on that task – your task – with thought and seriousness. Do your best for Sweden and its citizens!"

The King and Queen were welcomed by Speaker Andreas Norlén. But unlike her husband, Queen Silvia did not take the Speaker by the hand.
The reason is that the queen has a cold.
- After covid, it is still the case that people are a bit restrictive and greet in a different way than shaking hands. The queen also has a bit of a cold - so it's out of respect for the speaker. Based on that, you have a slight cold, but she is not sick. After the pandemic, there are several ways to greet respectfully, without shaking hands. Just at the edge of autumn, there are many people who have a cold, said Margareta Thorgren.

Yes I thought that was strange and that it might be delayed due to the recent election.

Parliament has to be formally opened to be able to do their job and approve a new government.

The royal family arrived in the evening to the Stockholm Concert Hall to the concert in collaboration with the Opening of the Riksdag. Queen Silvia doesn't attend the concert, probably because of her cold.

Here is a conjecture, which may be wrong as I am not Swedish.



If the Prime Minister does not resign, a vote has to be held in Parliament within two weeks from the new Parliament convening for the first time to ascertain if the incumbent Prime Minister has the confidence of the MPs to stay in office or not. That is not possible unless a new session of Parliament has officially begun.


On the other hand, if the Prime Minister resigns, the Speaker of the Parliament has to nominate a candidate to replace her, who also needs in turn to go through a confirmation vote in the Parliament. Again, Parliament has to be in session for such vote to be held.

Ok maybe it is similar to the constituent session of the Bundestag here in Germany. The difference however is that only takes place after an election and not every year.

In it among others the President of the Bundestag is elected.

The prime minister (Magdalena Andersson) has resigned. She did that a couple of days after the election when the results were clear. But she's formally still the acting prime minister until a new government is formed.

And as others have mentioned, the opening of the Parliment has to be done so that they can technically go to work and - among other things - approve a new PM and government.

The Riksdaghuset is practically opposite Stockholms Slot, just crossing the Norrbro bridge before the palace and then some 300-400 metres or so. The Riksdag is on an isle in the Norrström. My guess is that because the royal cortège is so short, there is little to see.
