Happy 40th wedding anniversary to King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden. Silvia Sommerlath went from commoner to queen consort in a matter of moments on June 19, 1976, when she married Sweden's king.

To celebrate, here's film footage of the royal wedding. Watching the ceremony is great, but I think spotting the royals in the congregation is even more fun!
