Wedding-Themed National Day Festivities

Published söndag 6 juni 2010 kl 10.44
National Day celebration on Skeppsbron in Stockholm

Sweden celebrated its National Day on Sunday in both traditional and wedding-inspired fashion. According to custom, the royal family was at Skansen, Stockholm’s open-air folk museum, to partake in the festivities. There, Daniel Westling appeared alongside his royal fiancée at the ceremony for the first time.

After the Skansen event, the royals moved through the capital in an extra-long motorcade, as practice for the June 19 wedding cortège.

The day was also the starting shot for Stockholm Love Fest, a two-week-long festival being staged in the capital during the run-up to the wedding.

Beyond the royal scene, however, a number of political demonstrations were held, though nationalist parades were largely absent, unlike previous years.

Swedes have been celebrating National Day on June 6 since 1983 in honor of the election of the formidable King Gustav Vasa in 1523.
