The King's Dinner is held at the Royal Palace in Stockholm after the Nobel ceremony and banquet. These days, it's almost always held on December 11, the day after the grand ceremony. Several members of the royal family are generally in attendance, wearing grand jewels just as they did the previous day. Here's a look at a few examples from years past!
