King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia attended the Kröningsåret 1818 symposium

On August 16, 2018, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden attended the "Kröningsåret 1818" (The Coronation Year 1818) Symposium arranged by the Bernadotte Society at Örebro Castle. King Carl XIII died on February 5, 1818, and Bernadotte ascended the throne. His coronation in Sweden took place on May 11th, and he took the name King Carl XIV Johan or Charles III John (Johan's original name was Jean-Baptiste-Jules Bernadotte). In September, he was crowned in Norway, as King Carl III Johan. Thus began the Bernadotte dynasty in Sweden, which continues today.

  2. Pourquoi le roi recoit-t-il des fleurs? Je ne crois pas que les autres souverains males recoivent des fleurs! Il a toujours l'air serieux, parfois ronchon.

    1. Yes, not the usual thing in Sweden, but nice to see. It is common in Norway for King Harald and Crown Prince Haakon to be given flowers. I wonder if King Carl Gustaf smiled upon receiving those flowers.

    2. Et pourquoi pas? Les hommes ne peuvent pas recevoir des fleurs?

    4. In the last picture, Queen Silvia has both flower bouquets in her knee. Perhaps Carl Gustaf gave his bouquet to his beloved wife.

  4. Queen Sylvia looks lovely! She wears the nicest suits; feminine instead of office style.

  5. Queen Silvia looks pretty good in all colours and it seems as her hair has got a brighter colour, very suitable to her as well !
