King Carl, who is a distant relative of King Charles, wasborn on 30 April, 1946, and ascended the throne on 15 September 1973, at the age of 27.
He is the seventh king of the House of Bernadotte and the longest reigning monarch in Swedish history. The King’s motto is: ‘For Sweden With the times.’
Ahead of his Golden Jubilee celebrations, the Royal Court of Sweden shared a new image of the monarch, which was taken in the Royal Palace of Stockholm’s Hall of State.
Dressed in his admiral uniform, the father-of-three is pictured next to the silver throne, which dates back to Queen Kristina’s 1650 coronation and is used in state openings of parliament.

King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden is celebrating 50 years on the throne in 2023 – making him the country’s longest-serving monarch. The father-of-three posed in the sameceremonial chains and medals that he wore for his 1973 regal assurance, when he was only 27 years old in a new portrait
Over his uniform, the King wears a number of medals – including the Order of the Seraphim.
This medal – also known as the ‘Blue Ribbon’ – is seen as Sweden’s equivalent to the UK’s Order of the Garter and is the highest honour of chivalry which can be awarded.
On top of this, the monarch also wears the Royal Order of Vasa, the Order of the Sword and the 1840 Order of Dannebrog chain, which can only be given to the monarch’s closest family.
The King also appears to be wearing the exact same ceremonial chains he donned for his 1973 regal assurance, when he became the country’s youngest ever monarch at 27 years old.
The new portrait of the King, taken by Thron Ullberg, will appear on stamps being issued in Sweden in 2023.
