The article offers information on the wedding of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Silvia Sommerlath held at the Gothic cathedral in Stockholm, Sweden. Two gold, jewel-encrusted crowns, which the couple will never put on, flanked the altar. Some 20 bands played marches, folk songs, and bagpipe tunes as the newlyweds passed through capital streets and flag-draped bridges in a horse-drawn landau. Several reigning monarchs that attended the event include Belgian King Baudonin, Danish Queen Margrethe II, and Norwegian King Olav V.
