Each time I see Sofia on pics, she is too heavily made up. I have nothing against making up but heavy one is not very classy for a young woman and is badly seen in some circles.

How can we possibly tell these things from a hastily-snapped photo ?

They might have been fed up because the sun wasn't shining, or they had forgotten their umbrellas...

You could be right Karisma, about this and Sofia walking behind the princesses as her role is a private one (still). However, if they had spotted the photographer, as Expressen says, and if they did accept Sofia, then they would have made an effort to show it by smiling at her, or interacting with her.

I can understand because Sofia is a private person that there would be distance between the two princesses. If they had any friendly inclination towards her, it would have shown in some way. I seen other pictures of Princess Victoria and Princess Madeline with other friends who I'm guessing were non-royalty and it's like a picture tells 1,000 words. Can't exactly explain it. They don't seem to have any friendly inclination towards her at all.

Even if Queen Silvia did force Princess Madeleine to spend some time with Sofia, there is no way anyone can force Madeleine to ever like her. That photo taken from the wedding, suggests to me Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine are not keen on Sofia, maybe things will change in time however, I cannot see that happening anytime soon.

This speculation by some members of this board are freakin hilarious. Let's pass judgement on 3 young ladies based on one snapshot showing 3 seconds out of their lives. I swear some of you and your determination to hate this woman is just laughable.

I think hate is a strong word. But it isn't very surprising that many have their doubts about Sofia's character considering all that has been mentioned (soft pornographic photos, actively seeking fame, living with a man twice her age and charities that aren't all too clear though I personally find the quote on her yoga clothes website 'be mindful even when your mind is full' the worst of them all ).

But you are correct that 1 picture doesn't tell the entire story of course. Personally I highly doubt all those alleged ultimatums of Carl Philip and Madelaine's friends telling the press that Madelaine did not speak to Sofia at all. We are not dealing with a group of children in kindergarten but with a bunch of adult people.

Sorry, but an adult, IMO, accepts he/she is responsible for their own actions. An adult is someone who has established their own life by taking control of how they choose to live that life-we seek a career and choose jobs that will bring us not only satisfaction but monetary gains for the particular lifestyle we have chosen ; being an adult isn't just an age milestone. Carl Philip and Madeleine may have chosen a career path but not the job path. Peer relationships may also reflect this (recall her supposed anger over Jonas dating a friend's ex?). Same with Sofia's friends who have been shown to provide information on Sofia's and Carl Philip's relationship.

I would also like to add to the above post: Sofia's chosen career path (in the limelight) and her job (honestly, being the prince's girlfriend) shows her to have a greater understanding of how to live her life than those two.

You write very wise words. I can not understand how some members of imagination can cope with so much negative speculation about which we know nothing about. However, I remember the speculation about Mette-Marit (I had another username then) and I can actually say to one and another who wrote the most negative about Mette-Marit no has become her followers and writes lyrically of what they condemned. That should learn us not be too quick to judge ...

This forum would be very much nicer without confusion of "not approving" or "feeling very unease with" and "hating". A negative judgement is not hate.

IA Sancia. Plus it´s very boring to hear that´s hating etc.

I dislike this girl. But hating? No! It would mean that she is important XD

Don't really care too much for Sophia. I've never hated nor do I strongly dislike her. Hate is a very strong word and usually reserved for someone who has done me wrong or who has done my friends wrong and who has done people I like wrong.

I'd like to see a snapshot showing 3 seconds of someone's life. Hate is a very strong word, I don't think anyone on this board hates Sofia. There are simply opinions about her and her actions, positive or negative ones. Everyone is allowed to state his/her opinion and a bit more tolerance towards different options might be the key to make this place something it once was. Attacking other members is not exactly the way to go. Life is not only rainbows and butterflies, there are also storms in paradise.

Some people may well "hate" Sofia. That is their problem. It is not a problem for Sofia, but for the participants in this board.

I should think that very few posters on the TRF are foolish enough to truly "love" or "hate" any Royal and those connected to them.
Of course these people are liked or disliked, approved or disapproved of, held in high esteem or not, based on the impression one gets through their biography, attitude, or appearance - that's it.
Perfectly natural to form a positive opinion as well as forming a negative one, and not connected - as pointed out by Sancia originally - to anything that would equal "hate".

Business woman mentor to the prince's girlfriend

Business woman Barbro Ehnbom flurries Prince's new fickvän with good grades. Barbro Ehnbom is the founder of the Female Economist of the Year.

Ehnbom believe that Sofia has been completely inaccurate presentation of the media.

"They have unilaterally noticed some things she did as a teenager," - said the international business woman.

Barbro Ehnbom who is also the founder of the women's network BBB (Barbro's Best Brightest) have seen a different side of Sofia as she wants to share. Sofia Hellqvist include one of the few that are chosen in her network.

"I discovered early on that Sofia is a girl who definitely lives up to the BBB's criteria, she is talented, driven, a good person and a good person".

Barbro Ehnbom also tells us that Sofia Hellqvist passionate about helping sick children in Africa and is committed especially for a family in need in Ghana.
"She also runs a charity project named Project Playground, which focuses on helping children in South Africa".

Sofia Hellqvist has studied English and business administration in New York for two years. Now she is studying social entrepreneurship at the University of Stockholm. As the prince's new girlfriend, she has also received media training to deal with the attention surrounding her.
