Minnesota Hosts Sweden’s King and Queen [PHOTOS]

Governor Dayton greets King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden at the Governor’s Residence.

ST. PAUL (AP) — King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden received a warm welcome in St. Peter, as part of their three-day trip in Minnesota.

They visited St. Peter Friday to mark the 150th anniversary of the founding of Gustavus Adolphus College by Swedish immigrants.

About 2,000 people, including 1,000 St. Peter school children, lined the walkway all the way to Christ Chapel. Many held small Swedish and American flags and waved them as the couple passed.
