King, Queen, and Crown Princess of Sweden Stamps

These postcards show stamps commemorating the royal wedding of of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Silvia Sommlath on 19 June 1976 and the "New Order of Succession" in 1980. Crown Princess Victoria was born on 14 July 1977 and is the oldest child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia. Her first place in succession formally went into effect on 1 January 1980 with the parliamentary change to the Act of Succession that introduced absolute primogeniture.

This is a post for Sunday Stamps at Viridian's Postcard Blog


  1. I like the one colour engraved stamps. They have only changed our succession to first born very recently.

  2. With all these Royalties, it looks like Sunday Stampers are also celebrating for the upcoming birth of the Royal baby. :)

    Thank you also for checking out my entry.I fixed the image,thanks for letting me know.
