The Parade Barouche was made by L.V. Nylund's coach factory in Stockholm around the turn of the last century. It has been used for most royal weddings in Stockholm during the post-war period. Photo: Charlotte Gawell
The Princess Couple will travel in the Parade Barouche. This is the same barouche that was used by The King and Queen and The Crown Princess Couple's at their weddings.
Drawn by four horses à la d'Aumont The Princess Couple's Parade Barouche is drawn by four horses à la d'Aumont, which means that there is no coachman in the driver's seat. Instead, there is a mounted driver on the left horse. This will enable as many people as possible to see The Princess Couple during the cortège.
Subtly decorated with elegant linesThe Parade Barouche has a simple construction and is less ornate than many of the other coaches of royal families across Europe. It is constructed with a high level of craftsmanship and is aesthetically pleasing with its elegant, boat-shaped lines. The Parade Barouche has magnificent silver-plated lanterns crowned with royal crowns and etched glass.
Used at the Haga Princesses' weddingsThe Parade Barouche was used at several of the Haga Princesses' weddings. The current King's parents, Prince Gustaf Adolf and Princess Sibylla, travelled in this barouche when they arrived in Stockholm after their wedding in December 1932. They wore warm clothes and had a rug over their legs due to the bitterly cold weather.
