Swedish King Celebrated

Basking in glorious sunshine and to the notes of an ABBA medley – Stockholm celebrated the birthday the Swedish king Carl XVI Gustaf in style.

Hundreds of people had gathered in the courtyard of Stockholm’s Royal Palace on Thursday to pay their respects to the Swedish King on his birthday. Crown princess Victoria, Queen Silvia and Princess Madeleine waved from a window in the palace.

After an ABBA medley performed by the Army Drummers, and a salute had been fired from the cannons at Skeppsholmen, the King came out to receive the congratulations from the people and to accept flowers from children from all over the country. (rm)
