EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning print captures a momentous occasion in 1864, when the Prince and Princess of Wales visited Sweden and attended a performance at the Theatre Royal in Stockholm. The future King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra were greeted with great fanfare as they arrived just in time to see the last act of "The Daughter of the Regiment" performed on stage. The grandeur of the theatre is evident in the image, with five tiers of boxes adorned in white and gold rising up to the ceiling. As the Royal party entered, the audience rose to their feet and the orchestra played both national anthems, highlighting the close ties between Sweden and Britain. In this snapshot from history, we see King Charles XV leading Princess Alexandra to her seat beside him, while Prince Edward escorts Queen Dowager Sophia. The royal attire is described in detail - from King Charles' hussar uniform to Prince Edward's General's uniform with a ribbon of the Bath. The elegance and grace displayed by all members of royalty are captured beautifully in this illustration from "Illustrated London News", showcasing a moment that will forever be remembered as a symbol of diplomatic relations between nations.
