NordenBladet — Last Saturday, on February 24 th , Estonia celebrated 100 years of independence. Sweden was represented by the King’s Company, part of the Royal Guards, in the yearly independence parade. 

Several countries participated in the parade to support Estonia’s 100 years of independence. The King´s Company attended with 11 men and was one of the bigger units to take part in the celebrations (not originating from Estonia). The public interest was big and the streets of Tallinn full of people cheering the parade and the Swedish King’s Company when they paraded down the streets. After the parade the Embassy of Sweden served “fika” to thank the King’s Company for their participation.

The King’s Company would like to give a big thank you to the Estonian people who cheered them down the streets in both Swedish and Estonian. The King’s Company felt very welcomed!
