STOCKHOLM (AP) -- King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden is celebrating 40 years on the throne by throwing a dance party in the Stockholm Palace courtyard.
The royal palace celebrated the king's 40th anniversary Sunday by holding a service in the palace church, attended by the heads of state from neighboring Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland. On Saturday, there was a dinner and a jubilee concert.
Later Sunday the mayor of Stockholm, Sten Nordin, will toast the king, and there will be a party for the public, featuring dance rhythms such as salsa, waltz, lindy hop and foxtrot.
In a Swedish radio interview, the 67-year-old monarch indicated he will stay on the throne for as long as he remains healthy and said his job is now "more exciting than ever."
