Q is for Queen

We Finns don't have any royals but luckily we can follow the royal life from our dear neighbor country, Sweden.

H.M. Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden and Silvia Sommerlath

H.M. King Carl XVI Gustav,  H.M. Queen Silvia with H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria,

 The Royal Family, Victoria 18 years old

 The Royal Guards perform state ceremonial duties on behalf of the Swedish Armed Forces. They also take part in royal ceremonial occasions, official state visits, the opening of parliament, Swedish National Day, formal audiences, the official opening of the Swedish Academy, naval visits etc.
Also they are guarding The Royal Palace of Stockholm and Drottningholm Palace. Changing the Guard takes place every day of the year. However the march through the city of Stockholm with military band is usually only during the summer months from May to August.

 My sister in law sent these cards to our daughter.
