The Royal Wedding – 10th Anniversary Today

juni 19, 2020

On June 19, 2010, the wedding of H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria and H.R.H. Prince Daniel was held in the Church of St. Nicholas, the Stockholm Cathedral. More than eighteen months earlier, I had received a telephone call from Mr. Daniel Westling … 

… and now, here I was, invited to the ceremony. When arriving at the church all guests found the Wedding Program on the seats and I remember thinking ”great, as if I’m not nervous enough, it’s the final musical performance before the newlyweds will walk down the aisle”. Sure, having written the song I knew what to expect and, of course, I already had played it to the bride and groom to be, whom loved it. But this was different – now the piece was going to be performed live in front of 1,200 wedding guests and millions of TV spectators around the world.

The incredibly beautiful and heartwarming ceremony was coming to a close – it was now time for ”When You Tell the World You’re Mine. And while listening to the artists Björn Skifs and Agnes singing, accompanied by The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and a chamber choir, conducted by maestro Gustaf Sjökvist, it brought tears to my eyes. And not only mine but also my wife’s and many other guests’ (which I managed to observe). It was truly an emotional 4 minutes and 7 seconds. ”Proud” was one word that came to mind. ”Honoured” was another. And I will certainly forever be.

Happy Wedding Anniversary Wishes
H.R.H. Victoria and H.R.H. Prince Daniel
Your colours blend together
