The Crown Princess Couple are visiting France in connection with the Bernadotte anniversary. This year is the 200th anniversary of when Sweden elected Jean Baptiste Bernadotte heir to the Swedish throne.
During their stay in France, The Crown Princess Couple will visit a number of places with a connection to Bernadotte and his wife, Désirée Clary (King Karl XIV Johan and Queen Desideria) — Sceaux, Savigny-le-Temple and Pau.
Sceaux is where Bernadotte married Désirée, and their marriage certificate is preserved here.
They owned an estate in Savigny-le-Temple.
Bernadotte was born in Pau, and his childhood home is now a museum.
Since the Bernadotte anniversary is also being commemorated by the French Ministry of Culture, The Crown Princess Couple will meet representatives of the French government.
