The Royal Palace of Stockholm is a place where history is written and dreams come true. In 1976 this is the venue where King Carl XVI. Gustaf marries the German girl Silvia Sommerlath and makes her the Queen of Sweden. When Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling breathed "I do" from the bottom of their hearts in 2010, the whole of Sweden and half the world followed the ceremony on television. And on June 8th 2013 the palace also was the location for Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill to receive the blessing for their love.
Julia Melchior's film takes us through the past and presence of one of the world's oldest monarchies.
