I cant recall any other royal WaG who has promoted herself and her activities in such a bold way. And I wonder if there ever had been the turnaround from borderline pornographic pictures to charity without the possible reward, marrying a Prince of Sweden.

But of course, people can change
Love this post:)

Patrick Lagus, who produces the Strauss concerts which Sofia will attend, told in Saturday´s Iltasanomat (finnish tabloid) that the reason why he chose Project Playground to be the organisation he will donate this year, is that when he started the concerts, he got support from South Africa. He lived in Cape Town during the years 2001-2003. Project Playground works in Langa, Lagus visited Langa in 2002. He is going to visit South Africa in February and he has promised to Sofia and Lina, that he will then visit Project Playground. Lagus told also that he has been dealing with the members of the royal family during his career.

Iltasanomat told also that Project Playground will start during 2012 a campaign "Play on wheels", they will take help all over the country to those children, who can´t visit the PP center.

At the website of MTV3 (finnish TV channel)
Sofia is an unofficial official member of the royal family... ... The organizers tell MTV3, that Sofia hasn´t asked any special arrangements, although she is a member of the royal family.

I get the SRF has a scandal to deal with but they are letting Sofia slip in quietly like a thief in the night. She's using this time to benefit her purposes cause a year ago she would not have been allowed to pose like that with the prince for her charity. I'm slowing beginning to agree with those who want the monarchy abolished!
Me too! It's like they don't even follow the royal protocols and traditions anymore and just do whatever the heck they want. If they're just gonna abandon all the rules, why bother having a monarchy anymore?

The finnish press is writing about Sofia as "the member of the royal family", maybe partly because Svensk Damtidning writes almost every week about "Sofia, our next princess".
And Bertil Ternert from the court has emphasized the position of Sofia as a royal girlfriend by commenting about her living with Carl Philip, her asking for media help from the court etc.

I agree; love is one thing, but this is something else entirely. Sofia wouldn't even be taken seriously as marriage material by a decent normal man and princes should have high standards. I don't understand why on earth princes have such low standards. There are thousands of attractive princesses out there that have excellent looks, accomplishments, and lineage and these princes choose the worst of the worst when it comes to stuff like wives and eventually Queen Consorts. American politicians are more careful about who they marry because they know that they will be representing the country, however hypocritical it might be.

He deserves all the misery on the world if he marries her.

What's more astounding than this sentence, is that you actually mean it. How disgusting that you would wish misery upon someone simply for who they dated.

What bugs me the most is that she encourages him in his hedonistic lifestyle.

I wonder if this is laced with jealousy.
Disturbing and disgusting aren't strong enough to describe sentiments like this.

Well,that's the life situation, a lot of men(the princes are not excluded here) are primarily attracted by the beauty of a woman,despite of their other achievements.Sometimes it could be an ideal intellectualy balanced attraction(when the woman is intelligent or has a degree or specific achievements),the other times the attaction is dominating factor.From other side,when either a noble or a prince is dating just a pretty girl from his circle,it gives the idea of his sense of duty and refusing (or fear)to choose a life partner outside his society,which is not the best side of a man.

I think it's just being able to seperate personal feelings from logical thinking. Btw, nice said, Lumutqueen. I completely agree.

WOW! Sofia just can't do anything right, can she? I so hope we get the engagement news this year. Because I have the feeling she is the perfect wife for CP.

What hope do decent women have when Princes choose women like this? Sofia had her chance to fly right and I am disgusted taht women who have done right by themselves and others (before they met a prince) get bypassed in favor of women like that. I am disgusted.

Let's make her wear a scarlet "A" so everyone knows that she's inferior to all other women! Or perhaps she's a witch! Let's throw her into a bog, if she doesn't sink she's ok to marry him, but if she does, we all know she was a harlot.



There's finding someone distasteful, and then there's out and out slut shaming. Often, the opinions about Sofia are expressed as the latter. I understand the reservations some people have about her (I understand those- I don't have any particular love for reality tv or the culture around it either) but acting like a woman is less than worthless because of her sexual choices is sexist and in my opinion, is never warranted.

Just because he is a prince does not make him anymore special than the average man. Men, for centuries, have chosen "undesirable" women as their spouses, mistresses and so on. He is not the first male, nor the last, that will choose such a woman as a girlfriend. Let us not kid ourselves here. Sofia has showcast herself in a poor light, and it has be done more than once. But if the Prince chooses her as his spouse, that is his choice, but to look as this union and believe you're being hard-done-by, oh please. Cry me a river! He isn't the heir apparent, and will become more distant from the Crown when Victoria has more children. He isn't the first Prince to do this - Duke of Windsor anyone? I can name half a dozen or more girlfriends/wives of current CROWN Princes who are decent and hardworking women, who never had a scandal.

What you should be disgusted with is the lack of proper PR coming from the Swedish court. They allowed Sofia to be mentioned as a Royal Family member without issuing some kind of correction.

Completely agree!The most disturbing is not even her person,but this kind of PR that is intended to transform cardinally Sophia's image in a couple of weeks.
By the way,of course she is not "witch"(lol),she is far too beautiful(either accept it or not) to be the one, in order to "conquer" the prince's soul.
What really interests me,is the Swedish people's attitude towards her,I guess they are not bothering a lot about me,well correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm not. Because first and foremost CP is a human being with human feelings. Feelingscome and go like they want. So why blame him for something he can't do anything against? Prince or not, feelings work the same way for him than for anyone else. And Sofia does a decent job since she is his girlfriend.
