The Swedish capital will be decked out to welcome royal guests of the courts of Europe who have been invited to the wedding celebrations of the Princess and her fiancé Chris O'Neill 

On Friday June 7, the day before the big day, the happy couple will welcome guests with a private lunch at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm 

The five-star luxury landmark hotel will unveil the first of the royal wedding celebrations 

The couple will say 'I do' in a ceremony officiated by Swedish bishop emeritus Lars-Göran Lönnermark, and preacher of the congregation of the Swedish court Michael Bjerkhagen, in the chapel of the Royal Palace 

The newlyweds will travel in a horse-drawn carriage from the Royal Palace to the island of Riddarholmen. The procession, escorted by soldiers of the Swedish army, will pass through the outer courtyard of the palace and the streets Slottsbacken, Skeppsbron, Strömbron, Strömgatan, Norrbro, Slottskajen, Myntgatan and Wrangelska backen to the square of Evert Taubes terrass in Riddarholmen 

The firing of 21 guns at intervals of five seconds will take place, in keeping with a tradition dating back to the 17th century 

Guests will travel by boat from the island of Riddarholmen to Drottningholm Palace, where the wedding banquet will take place 

In Drottningholm Palace, also the residence of the Royal Family, the wedding feast will be hosted by King Carl Gustaf and his wife Queen Silvia of Sweden 

Drottningholm Palace is very dear to the bride as she was born in the residence, which has been a perfect setting for an array of celebrations over the years
