Not suprised that the court didnt mention nor wanted to comment because IMO its their not place to do so and ruin teh s uprise for Victoria.
If Victoria wanted everyone to know who is the flower boy/girl we wouldve knows by know.
Its a shame other houses ruined it

It must have been a mistake at the Dutch court as they are usually not very talkative...at all. With no other foreign royal event the Duch court released a statement who was attending so long in advance (and often they did not release any statement at all).

I suppose Amalia has to take some extra days off from school again, so let's see when the first people will start complaining in newspapers and such.

I have to say that although it is great Prince Christian and Princess Amalia will be on the wedding I would have prefered to be surprised when they got out of the car. As to whether Princess Ingrid-Alexandra will be present perhaps that will be a surprise for the day. Or maybe she wasn't asked! Victoria has plenty of godchildren and Daniel has a young niece and possibly his own godchildren. It would have been easier to stick all their names in a hat and chose at random!

I, personally, think a mound is being made out of a mole hill.

It's a wedding, and the wedding party will consist of whoever Victoria and Daniel would like to take part.

Our expectations are inconsequential to the reality of the situation.

I hope they do too but I don't think they will. They only seem to show British weddings in the U.S.

This I can not imagine.
Ingrid Alexandra is too much of an obvious choice, if Christian and Amalia are part.
If she wouldn´t be there, I´d be sure, it would be, because she didn´t want to.
However I´d dare to bet she will be also there.
People start again to read schedules one-sided (just as it did happen with the invitation list of the government)
Ingrid wasn´t listed for all duties, she had performed in her young life. The same goes for Christian.
Just because the Danish court was now adding him, it doesn´t mean, the norwegian court has to follow this.
And "no comment" doesn´t equal "no participation"

BTW Daniel has two nieces. Hedvig (11) and Vera (6)

I know, bummer. Leave it to the U.S. to be enamored with the least open of the royal families (and IMO the least attractive).

In fact, the US was born from the rude treatment, stuffy rule, and deaf ears of the British monarchy. With so many other people from so many areas of the world, particularly Europe, it is strange that the US media has only focused on the Windsors and the Grimaldis.

Oh well, thank goodness for the Internet.

Pop star Agnes Carlsson and veteran artist Björn Skifs will sing a duet at Storkyrkan at the wedding, Skifs is also playing piano. Songwriter and producer Jorgen Elofsson has written the song.
- It is a love ballad in Beyoncé-style, says a source within the wedding organization.

On Tuesday morning it was a wedding procession rehearsal:

Victoria and Daniel will be served a dinner with 25 dishes (!) at the East Indiaman Götheborg three days before the wedding.
- They may go out and run afterwards, says chef Leif Mannerström.
The dinner is for 150 guests, including the governors of Sweden, King Carl Gustaf, Queen Silvia and Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling.

I was only joking Lola

I hope Ingrid Alexandra will attend but I'm not sure as the royal house has only announced the reigning couple, crown princely couple and martha louise with ari behn. I'm assuming that if Ingrid Alexandra was going she would have been listed.

There are those, who shall row Victoria and Daniel. Fight for places has been fierce, said the seaman Joakim Holmstrom, 20 from Stockholm

Sailor Helena Andersson, 21, is one of the rowers.
- I am happy and proud, it is an honor.

I think that we have to wait and see, if Carl Philip and Madeleine participate at this event, it seems to be private, it isn´t listed at the royal court website.

This must be a really special event as I've never known Abdullah to attend a European royal wedding and Rania only once since her husband ascended the throne. I just hope Rania remembers not to wear white to another woman's wedding, like she did Letizia's in Spain.

Thank you Lady finn for posting the interview link in English. It is very difficult to find much of anything online. I don't post much, but I'd like to thank everyone who does post regularly here for keeping us Royal watchers informed.

I'm glad everything is finally coming together for the royal couple.

And this is a quite unofficial pre-wedding event: fires and rioting in a Stockholm suburb.

Fires and rioting in Stockholm suburb - The Local

Hopefully they will be quelled quickly before they could spread to other parts of Stockholm and cause inconvinience to visitors and tourists as well as embarassment for the Swedish government.
