The cancelled one is explained by Swedish postal rules at the time allowing labels to be placed alongside stamps. You'll find their Christmas TB seals cancelled, too.

It's a cinderella. Issued by some organization that had an interest in seeing lots of mail with the faces of the royal couple. More than that would probably require a Swedish specialist with an extensive library, presuming anyone cared enough to keep records.

There is a Swedish online market place that dates these to around 1910. Vayolene's source might be correct.
However, your example with a date stamp for 1914 could be another indication.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustaf_V

The King and defence were issues in Sweden in 1914:

At first, Gustaf V seemed to be willing to accept parliamentary rule. After the Liberals won a massive landslide in 1911, Gustaf appointed Liberal leader Karl Staaff as Prime Minister. However, during the runup to World War I, the elites objected to Staaff's defence policy. In February 1914, a large crowd of farmers gathered at the royal palace and demanded that the country's defences be strengthened. In his reply, the so-called Courtyard Speech—which was actually written by explorer Sven Hedin, an ardent conservative—Gustaf promised to strengthen the country's defences.
