King Carl XVI Gustaf’s Golden Jubilee Schedule

The Swedish Royal Court has announced the schedule for King Carl XVI Gustaf’s Golden Jubilee Celebrations throughout the year of 2023, alongside unveiling the anniversary logo designed by Elis Nyström. King Carl XVI Gustaf is the longest reigning King in Swedish History and the first Swedish Monarch to celebrate a Golden Jubilee, though his cousin, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark celebrated her Golden Jubilee this year. The Jubilee will also be marked with events in several places throughout the country, with a number of interviews, TV documentaries and book releases about the King’s life and reign.

King Carl XVI Gustaf’s Enthronement in 1973 was a restrained affair and he did not celebrate his Silver nor Ruby Jubilees, so the only comprable celebrations would be the various grand Galas and Festivities held for major Birthdays over the past few decades.
