Celebrating the 71st birthday of Carl Gustav XVI
I missed today’s football match between AIK and GIF Sundsvall because I was on assignment covering the celebrations for the king’s birthday. Carl Gustav XVI turned 71 and celebrated his birthday outside of the royal palace in Stockholm.
As always with these types of events there is a lot of waiting. I arrived at the palace a little after 10 in the morning and the celebration did not begin until 13.
Pro tip … bring something to sit on. 😀
