Visit of the Prince and Princess of Wales to Sweden: torchlight procession to…Royal Palace…, 1864. Creator: Unknown

Visit of the Prince and Princess of Wales to Sweden: torchlight procession to the Royal Palace at Stockholm - from a sketch by our special artist, 1864. The future King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra in Scandinavia....as the members of the Royal family took their places in [the carriages], running footmen, with flambeaux, dashed to the front, the quaintly-costumed horsemen galloped at their side, the coaches themselves tore off at speed, and an exciting spectacle was presented...The torchlight procession, for such it was, from the quay to the palace, was indeed a curious sight. The "Charles the Twelfth" guards are the most antiquated in appearance of any troops in Europe...These mounted warriors were followed by officials, also on horseback, and also strangely apparelled, carrying flambeaux. Carriages and four, the first being escorted by guards, followed, and were quickly passing through the entrance-gates of the palace, to the quick, sharp hurrahs which are the Swedish form of popular welcome or approval. The courtyard of the palace was crowded with, people. The military band played "God Save the Queen" incessantly'. Illustration from "Illustrated London News", [1864]

EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning print captures a momentous occasion in history - the visit of the Prince and Princess of Wales to Sweden in 1864. The torchlight procession to the Royal Palace at Stockholm is depicted in exquisite detail, showcasing the grandeur and excitement of the event. As the future King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra arrived at the palace, they were greeted by a spectacle unlike any other. Running footmen with flambeaux dashed ahead of their carriages, while quaintly-costumed horsemen galloped alongside them. The coaches tore off at speed, creating an exhilarating scene for all who witnessed it. The "Charles the Twelfth" guards, known for their antiquated appearance, led the way followed by officials on horseback carrying flambeaux. Carriages drawn by four horses made their way through the entrance gates of the palace amidst cheers from onlookers. The courtyard was packed with people eagerly awaiting their arrival. The military band played "God Save the Queen" as a sign of respect and welcome to royalty. This illustration from "Illustrated London News" truly captures a moment frozen in time - a royal visit filled with pomp and circumstance that will be remembered for generations to come.
