    Background: The Shah of Persia, on a three-week tour of Europe during which he will visit Belgium, Austria and Sweden, was greeted at Stockholm Airport by Sweden's king Gustav and Princess Bertil and Wilhelm. A Naval Band played the two countries' national Anthems, and the Shah reviewed a Guard of Honour. The two monarchs drove through the streets of Stockholm in an open carriage.

    It was the Shah's long-arranged visit to Sweden that prevented the Swedish Royal family from attending the marriage of Britain's Princess margaret to Mr. Antony Armstrong-Jones, May 6.

    The Shah was not accompanied to Europe by his Queen, Farah Diba, who is expecting a baby.
