Celebrate The Crown Princess's name day

On Tuesday 12 March, The Crown Princess will be congratulated on her name day. Everyone is welcome to join the celebrations in the Inner Courtyard of the Royal Palace.

Since the early 1990s, the Swedish Armed Forces have celebrated The Crown Princess's name day in the Inner Courtyard of the Royal Palace. Since The Crown Princess's birthday is normally celebrated on Öland, her name day marks the annual celebration of The Crown Princess in Stockholm.

Everyone is welcome to attend, with entry via the South Gate on Slottsbacken from 10:45.


10:45 The South Gate is opened for entry to the Inner Courtyard.

11:45 The Army Music Corps, an honorary troop from the Life Guard and the Main Guard from K3 march into the Inner Courtyard.

12:00 The celebrations begin with the Army Music Corps performing a musical programme, and conclude with the Music Corps, the Main Guard and the Guard of Honour presenting flowers to The Crown Princess.

For security reasons, no bags or gifts may be brought into the courtyard. However, flowers are still welcome.
