Anyway i think that as soon as the wedding is over they should fire her - she is definatly not good at her job
A good article and a links to other world (english-speaking) media on the issue of Victoria being escorted down the aisle by the King. Fathers Of The Bride: Tradition & Tensions Down The Aisle

It looks like it's happening. I'm not sure why people think this is sexist. It's a nice traditional which honors a father's work in raising a daughter. I think it's a loving gesture, not a comment on a woman's autonomy.

The article is quite good. I liked the point that, at the Swedish wedding, it is a King inducting the Crown Princess into another chapter of both the King's and the Crown Princess's monarchic path in life.

That should make it easier not to get hung up on the "giving away" ceremony...

Victoria and Daniel are planning for a long summer of love. After the wedding, they have no official duties for more than two months. They will have their honeymoon and move to the Haga Palace.

Thumbs up

I think the long time off is a good thing for them. I figure that from now on their "alone time" together will be more limited, so I'm glad they will enjoy a nice long time of relaxation after all the stress and hub-bub of the wedding.

It's nice to have a 2-month honeymoon. Like Jackswife said, their alone time will be limited, so they're making the most of the time. I like the Bible days, when honeymoons were at least a year long.

I was reading somewhere (BilledBladet?) that Benny Anderson, former songwriter and member of ABBA, is writing a song for Victoria.
Maybe we can hope for a new version of something like this :

That would be fantastic if they had a member of ABBA write a song in honor of the wedding. That's so sweet.

I wonder if Victoria will be wearing her mother's veil as well as the Cameo tiara?

Apparently her little sister Madeleine isn't attending the pre wedding ceremonies. (Lysning in Swedish - Don't know the english word for this.)
Very poor decision of the princess IMO.

Archbishop Anders Wejryd says that the court, Victoria and Daniel haven´t made the decision about who will take Victoria to the altar, they are still thinking of it...

I thought catholics are christians too... Anyway, I belong to evangelical-lutheran church (like almost all my fellow citizens and the Swedes too), and in our church it is a proper thing to do as the priests say. They could say for example that you cannot have a certain song performed at the wedding (if it is not a religious song, usually) and you just have to live with it. With getting married elsewhere I didn't mean that one should leave the country, but there are other places than the church to get wed in. Of course, with Victoria that probably isn't possible, but normally one can go and have e.g. a civil wedding if church doesn't fill one's expectations!

Btw, in my country it is allowed to walk down the aisle with someone else than the groom...

Gotta love it really, a Lutheran Archbishop complaining about how the couple walk to the altar in a Catholic built and Consecrated Cathedral. All we need now is for the Catholic Bishop of Stockholm to say he’s fine with it and we will have the perfect storm.... Just tell the Archbishop to built his own Cathedral if he wants to set the rules.

I just think the Church needs to relook at the areas that are important enough to make public statements about. In my view, this really is a non-issue, and one that the couple in question have to have a view on.

Hmmm, what will be the reaction of the archbishop now?
He hardly can refuse to wed the couple now, isn´t it ...

Of course, but I meant I'm Baptist Christian, not Catholic.

I 'm glad it's final that the King will walk her down the aisle! This is thee wedding to see. I just hope Nina Eldh will not make a statement that they've changed their minds.

The new flag of Crown Princess Victoria was delivered to the captain of the Royal barge "Vasaorden" in Stockholm, Sweden, May 28, 2010. The" "Vasaorden" is going to transport Victoria and Daniel Westling during the cortege through central Stockholm after their wedding.
