Groom-to-be Robert Sandström and the rest of his bros met the king and his wife, Queen Sylvia, during his bachelor party, or "stag day," his friend Christoffer Nilsson told BuzzFeed News.

In Sweden, the groom's friends plan the bachelor party as a surprise, and "kidnap" him for a day, Nilsson explained. Sandström's friends decided to dress him up in short shorts and a hat with sideburns. Then then made him do "physical activities."

The group knew the king and queen were in town for the day, so they decided to see if they could get the royal couple in one of the photos. "We figured out his route easily due to the heavy security," Nilsson said.

When the royals approached, one of the guys yelled out that they were having a bachelor party. So the king decided to come show Sandström some love.
