One thought on “Wedding Gala of Crown Prince Olav of Norway and Princess Martha of Sweden, 1929

  1. I think they made such a lovely couple! It was so sad that Princess Martha died so young. Both she and her sister Queen Astrid died very young. Both of them had every gift but the gift of years. But on this day in 1929, everyone was happy and full of hope!
