Is page boy the same thing as ring-bearer? Never heard of Page boy before. Christian will look really cute in the wedding.

This is just a guess, but I think pageboys are the male version of the younger flower girls. Not 100% positive though.

Page boys are just younger male attendants. Too young to be groomsmen, but old enough to participate in some way. Usually the officiant has the rings already, so there's no need for one of the little boys to "bear" the rings to the altar.

I'm sorry if this has been discussed before or if I am posting in the wrong thread but does anyone know how widely the wedding will be viewable/broadcast around the world on TV or online? The reason I'm asking this is because I'm in Sydney, Australia at the moment and will therefore probably have a bit of difficulties seeing the wedding. Any Aussie channels airing the wedding by any chance..? I've already tried getting the relatives to tape it for me since I'd hate to miss the wedding of the century...

I've been trying to find that out too with no avail My exams will be over by then, so I can divide my computer use between watching the wedding and the World Cup.

They won't go, because Joachim has chosen to stay and be regent.
I suppose people abroad, can watch the live internet stream, links will most likely be posted in the wedding thread when it opens.

Several off-topic posts (referring to the UK as 'Chavland' and discussing opinions on the British Royal Family) have been removed as they have nothing to do with this thread. Please try to keep on topic, we have lasted this long without any issues and the wedding is less than two weeks away

A Page was a male servant in medieval times and in fairytales a king was often known to say "send for my page!". A pageboy can often act as the ring-bearer too, although usually these days bridesmaids, maids/matrons of honour and pageboys tend to have little to do except look cute and good in the line-up.

I imagine that most countries' news bulletins will carry this story with some footage, but not the whole event live from beginning to end. I think possibly BBC News 24 will show coverage from time to time throughout the day.

Someone very kind and clever will post a link to the live feed on the day of the wedding. Otherwise, I'm going to go back into the engagement thread and find the live link used for the engagement to see what website it's on.

Because Princess Elisabeth has been very ill lately and i would find it rather selfish to force her to rule the country just so Joachim and Marie can party

Does anyone know if a broadcast of the Swedish royal wedding will be done live over the internet? All of us outside of Europe will be very disappointed if we cannot view the wedding live.

Princess Elisabeth can't act as regent (rigsforstander).

Before you can be apointed as rigsforstander, you have to be presented in the Council of State and swear to the constitution.

Also King Abdullah and Queen Rania of Jordan will attend.
Jordan News Agency - Petra - King leaves for London. I read that also Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein and Crown Princess Margarita and Prince Radu of Romania are confirmed as attending.
