Bertil Ternert, the director of the information and press department of the court, would never acknowledge the fact that prince is living with his girlfriend - without being either engaged or married - if it wasn´t serious.
- Sofia and Lippi are so in love. She is so sweet, a cuter girl is hard to find, says someone who knows them.

Svensk Damtidning is one of the gossip magazine, fabricating their stories to sell newspapers. "Officially" of the the Royal connection, it is only when an engagement announced by the court.

But if the Swedish people accept her, and she proves herself to add something to the SRF - we shouldn't have any objection to that.
It might not be right to compare Sofia to the likes of Letizia, MM or Camilla because today they are known for their royal behaviour. But when they became engaged to their respective husband, they had history and at the time their history was as shocking as Sofia's adventures. Question - do people think that Sofia's adventures are as bad the 3rd in line to a throne possible marrying a woman whose father has possible ties to Robert Mugabe? Granted these ties don't affect the woman directly but would you rather have naked pictures in the family album or RM?
I am not congratulating her on posing with a snake or kissing Jenna Jameson but I am saying that continually going over her exploits and re-telling how disgusting they are, or how shocked you are by them isn't doing any good to anything.
Well said, LumutQueen. I was lucky enough not to have to go the "actress" route before I met my prince. Maybe that's all she could do. Now is the time to put her past behind us and hope for a relationship for them that is comparable to every other happy couple out in the world...married or not; royal or not.

Well, I want to try and give her a chance...because I don't like being unfair.

But I just came from another Royal blogspot and saw a photo of the would be Princess Sofia that literally made me choke on my tea.

I am sorry people. With photos like the one I just saw floating around the blogosphere and Lord knows where else, I have no idea how anyone in Sweden is going to be able to curtsey to this young lady with a straight face.

I don't know what else to say right now...I am speechless.

Tabloid Se o Hör had the frontpage covered with Sofia and the headline: Sofia has to undergo surgery.

According to coworkers that read the papers she apperantly have a tatoo like a sun(havent seen it, but maybe it looks like the one Adam "Edge" Copeland, retired wwe wrestler have) on her back that need removal

Excellent! Maybe even sometimes it is good to listen and not talk? A Swedish proverb says : "Speech is silver but silence is gold".

Karisma I have listened...a lot. I have also SEEN.

If Carl-Philip took the motto of Gustaf VI Adolf...DUTY FIRST..which is the tag you display on all your posts..there is no way he would be entertaining the idea of marrying someone like Sofia. It's a joke to suggest otherwise.

You are a Swede obviously. If you have no problem with Sofia Hellqvist as the face of the monarchy that represents Sweden to the world, then that is all I need to know.

Your opinion matters much more than mine here.

The older generations take on this: Well look at Mette-Marit and her actions before marriage

Not an apple and orange comparison.

While MM acknowledged a wild lifestyle, there are no pictures of her wild lifestyle around the internet. If there were pictures, I don't think Haakon would have been allowed to marry her. Nor has she used the mass media to try to become famous prior to dating Haakon.

Why compare Sofia with MM or Letizia being divorced as the same situations? They are NOT. The only thing that is similiar is that these are commoners with issues. That is the only similarities.

I know that Svensk Damtidning is a tabloid. And I know that the engagement is official just when the court announces it. It just posted the story of SDT, because this thread is called "Press reports..."

King's business? In Sweden, we know well that the Republicans have bombarded tabloid press with claims that could not have been possible to prove!

As Sofia is concerned, my stance on that there was no relationship until the Royal Court has made ​​an announcement. Would it be something as I discuss it then. If other Monarchies have carats of the heirs to the throne is unfaithful, marries former junkie, writes very intimate letter to married women, etc, so I do think that the Swedish monarchy to sort out ... whatever that is.

Certainly there are photos of MM wild life! Would You like to see them? And it was so far advanced in Norway that Crown Prince Hakon was very close to renounce his succession to the crown. Confidence in the monarchy was down for about 40%...

Then we also have a memorial to the British managed to Camilla was married and lived a double life as Charles's mistress, and that the letters in which Charles described his desire to "be a tampon in her" came to publicity. There are more examples but I think you should see Time will show and not judge anyone in advance.

The fact that you became speechless lasted thankfully not so long that it turned into morbid silence, the better. "You're right " I usually say with crossed fingers for my sister, my mother, my mother in law and my dear wife, when I need some peace and quiet. But in your last sentence, I really agree with what you write without crossing fingers.

EXACTLY!!!
I've been saying this for the longest. There is no comparison between the three, except their commoner status. I don't get why that's so hard to understand. Being wild, getting divorced, having a child out of wedlock, being a married man's mistress is not the same as someone posing nude. It's a completely different field.

I love your posts!
I don't have to say anything cause you say it all!

This royal family had better start going by "duty first". They're already becoming a laughingstock. If this is what Swedes allow then hey by all means allow it.

If she was "just a nude model" I don't think it would be that big of a deal.

The human form is-ideally-beautiful and artistic.

But the Hellqvist photos I have seen are neither...they are cheap and extremely smutty looking. They are pornographic and distasteful.

In the appalling one I just saw Friday she is sitting on the floor completely naked with her legs slightly apart and her one hand casually but strategically placed. She has an almost drugged look on her face.

Never in a million years would I believe her as part of the same Royal House that gave the world Princess Astrid, later Queen of the Belgians..never.

If C-P insists on having this girl as his wife, he should relinquish his titles and live quietly with her as a private citizen.

If I was a Swedish noble or even a citizen, there is no way I would ever be able to pay reverence to her.

By God, when will you understand that you are sitting and writing about hypotheses!??? That is if, if, if, if ... MM in Norway had become crown princess been conducted Hakon else had left the throne. Martha Louise's choice of husband was enough, however, that she dropped the title "Royal Highness" and only became a princess. Ari Ben had no title but is "Mr Ari Ben". If, if, if, if ... If one could only see what developed between young Sophia and Carl Philip? If Carl Philip don´t get a permission to marry from both the King by the government, the least they do is to take away the title "Royal Highness". Is it really bad, he also loses the title of prince and becomes Duke of Värmland. (Compare the UK. Camilla became the Duchess and Prince Charles had rather wanted to be a tampon in Camilla ...) Norway seems to have gone well and Britain to. We will wait and see if we get to Sweden's doom.

Can we please stop comparing Sofia and Carl Philip's relationship/past to other royals? They do not have the same positions as anyone else, and the Swedish monarchy is different to the Spanish, Norwegian, etc. As is applicable in the reverse.

And remember that one of the TRF rules is to treat other members with respect - if that doesn't happen, this thread may find itself closed in the future.

ITA!
I´m sure CP is very nice and friendly but at the same time simple. Wonder about the long relationship to Emma. She seems to be bright.
