Royal wedding - June 19, 2010

The Royal Palace today provided the first details about the forthcoming marriage between Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Daniel Westling.
Their wedding will take place on June 19, 2010 at the Storkyran in Stockholm. If the date sounds familiar, it is because June 19 (1976) is the day when King Carl XVI Gustaf married Silvia Sommerlath.
June 19 appears to be a popular day for Swedish royal weddings:
Oscar I and Josephine Leuchtenberg (1823)
Carl XV and Louise of the Netherlands (1850)
