The Swedish royals looked perfect as they arrived for the ABBA Voyage concert premiere together at London’s ABBA Stadium.
The reunion was announced in September last year, after the group’s singles ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ and ‘Don’t Shut Me Out’ were released.
Two months later, they released the 10-track album ‘Voyage’ and announced plans for the high-tech concert in a purpose-built London arena.
The show will run seven days a week until early October at the purpose-built ABBA Arena theater in East London.
Bjorn was asked if ABBA would actually perform together in concert again and said: ‘ABBA has no plans. It is what it is.’

This is not the first ABBA-related event that King Carl and Queen Silvia have attended this week after they yesterday attended the Polar Music Prize ceremony at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm, founded by the late ABBA manager Stig Anderson.
They attended the international award with Crown Princess Victoria and her husband, Prince Daniel, as well as Prince Carl Philip.
The prize is often described as the Nobel Prize for music and celebrates two laureates, one contemporary and one classical, for significant achievements in the music industry.
This year, American musician James Newell Osterberg Jr, also known as Iggy Pop, 75, was honored along with Ensemble intercontemporain, a leading contemporary music ensemble based in Paris.
The 2022 Laureates were presented with their awards by His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden at the award ceremony.
