Hi, PrincessJenni. I too am fascinated with the Swedish RF, as well as the other Scandinavian royals...but your trip this summer will be easier than if I chose to make the trip from here in the US.
I am curious as to the overall view of the Swedish royals in Finland. Your Pres. Halonen is present at many events in Sweden and seems to have a very good relationship with the RF.
In addition, Finland has a long history with Sweden, but unlike the Norway split, Finland was first taken from Sweden in the Finnish War and then gained independence through the workings of the Soviet Union. Was/is there animosity regarding the past history...or is there a mutual affection among the Finnish and Swedish peoples?
Thanks in advance for any response to my questions. And, like you, I would much prefer to watch the wedding festivities in my own home without all the crowds and chaos
