900th Anniversary of the Cathedral School in Lund, 1985

King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden (wearing the Swedish Pink Topaz Parure and King Carl XVI Gustaf’s Portrait Brooch) were joined by his cousin, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark (wearing her Wedding Earrings and the Connaught Sapphire Brooch), at a Gala Dinner celebrating the 900th Anniversary of the Cathedral School (Katedralskolan) in Lund on this day in 1985. Founded by Danish Canute, the Katedralskolan is the oldest school in Scandinavia and one of the oldest schools in Northern Europe.

One thought on “900th Anniversary of the Cathedral School in Lund, 1985

  1. And King Carl XVI Gustaf is wearing the Star of the Danish Order of the Elephant, in honour of Queen Margrethe. Not sure about the Sash, as it is not possible to see it – but I suspect that it is the pale blue Sash of the Danish Order rather than the pale blue Sash of the Swedish Order of the Seraphim. Around his neck he is wearing the Neck-tie of the Swedish Order of the Polar Star.
