Tack så mycket Sofia
40 years ago today, Princess Christina married Mr Tord Magnuson in the church of the Royal Palace of Stockholm.
The bride, 30 years old at the time, was the last of the so-called Haga-sisters (King Carl XVI Gustaf's four sisters born at Haga Palace) to marry and like two of her older sisters who also married unequally, Princess Christina ceased to be a Royal Highness after the marriage.
The groom, 33 years old at the time, was a Master of Science in Engineering and businessman. The wedding took place only nine months after the Haga children's grandfather King Gustaf VI Adolf's death and the accession to the throne of a young Carl Gustaf.
Princess Christina is, because her other sisters moved from Stockholm at the time of their weddings, the only one of King Carl XVI Gustaf's sisters who has continued to be a working royal. The couple have lived on the estate of Ulriksdal Palace and today live opposite the Royal Palace of Stockholm and have always been close to King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia both in their private family lives and as supporting working royals.
Happy ruby wedding anniversary to Princess Christina Mrs Magnuson and Consul-General Tord Magnuson!
