Nordic Royals attended Emperor Naruhito’s enthronement

Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf and Crown Princess Victoria on Tuesday 22 October 2019 attended the enthronement ceremony of Japanese Emperor Naruhito together with Danish Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, as well as Norway’s Crown Prince Haakon – who came without Crown Princess Mette-Marit, as she is suffering from a chronic illness.

The Japanese Emperor’s enthronement ceremony also marked the beginning of the new era “Rewa” which means “ Beautiful Harmony”.

Apart from the Nordic royal families, the ceremony was attended by more than 2000 honorary guests and head of the states from 170 countries.

Later in the evening, the Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako hosted a Court Banquet at the Imperial Palace.
