    THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE LINED THE FLAG-DECORATED STREETS OF STOCKHOLM TODAY (FRIDAY) TO CATCH A GLIMPSE OF A ROYAL BRIDE - PRINCESS DESIREE OF SWEDEN, WHO WAS MARRIED TO A WEALTHY SWEDISH LANDOWNER, BARON NICLAS SILFVERSCHIOELD.

    POLICE FOUGHT TO RESTRAIN THE CROWDS IN THE NARROW COBBLED STREETS AROUND THE 15TH CENTURY LUTHERAN CATHEDRAL.

    MORE THAN 1,000 GUESTS, INCLUDING PRINCES DIPLOMATS AND SCHOOLCHILDREN, ATTENDED THE CEREMONY IN THE CATHEDRAL, WHOSE GOLDEN CHANDELIERS GLITTERED UNDER TELEVISION LIGHTS.

    THE 26 YEAR-OLD BLUE-EYED PRINCESS WAS LED TO THE ALTAR BY HER GRANDFATHER, 82 YEAR-OLD KING GUSTAF ADOLF OF SWEDEN. HER FATHER DIED IN AN AIR CRASH IN 1947.

    AFTER THE RECEPTION THE COUPLE FLEW TO NICE INCOGNITO ON A SWEDISH AIRLINES FLIGHT. THEY LEFT THE AIRPORT IMMEDIATELY AND DROVE ALONG THE ROAD TO SAINTE MAXINE WHERE PRICE BERTIL OF SWEDEN HAS A VILLA. IT IS NOT CONFIRMED THAT THEY WILL HONEYMOON THERE.

    THIS WAS THE FIRST OF THE SWEDISH ROYAL FAMILY'S TWO WEDDINGS IN JUNE. A LONDON BUSINESSMAN, MR. JOHN AMBLER, IS TO MARRY PRINCESS DESIREE'S SISTER, PRINCESS MARGARETHA, ON JUNE 30.
