Well, the crisis is something that could have been discovered by the press. Although, I would be very pleased if they would broke up.

Me too. I like her and they seem really in love with each other. But I don't think we will get any engagement news before the royal baby is born.

Well,at first sight it seems the prince could have found better girlfiend than Sofia and to many people she seems to be inappropriate in the future role of royal bride or wife.Personally I think that Carl-Phillip probably will make a mistake if he marries Sophia and he should think twice about the sincerity of her feelings.
But I do believe,Carl-Phillip's parents know their son better than others and I am sure they really wanted to see Carl-Phillip find a sweet girl with an appropriate personality and education,who would really love their only son.
Of course, it's better for him to marry for love....and if he loves Sofia, then he should marry Sofia(in order to avoid an unhappy marriage with possible love triangles).

Sofia is not the perfect choice or the Princess type but I can just trust that Carl Phillips parents know the situation better than us. Seeing as how Victoria was with Daniel a decade before they got married, and CP was with his ex for years and they didn't get married, I will hope that CP doesn't rush to the alter with Sofia and instead takes his time and waits until the honeymoon period is over to contemplate marriage.

It bothers me that according to press reports, Sofia was only 16 years old when she posed for a quite provocative photos. It just makes me wonder, what kind of a people her parents are and how she is raised.

You can write Sofia Hellqvist at Google and you will find a lot more information of her, especially if you do the photo search.

Carl Philip seems to have represented Project Playground rather officially with Sofia in August.
SCEA supports Project Playground

Sofia Hellqvist visited the Volvo Ocean Race Cape Town village with children from Project Playground, who made art with the Skeleton Sea artists, on 7th December.

The same Sofia posed like this in January 2010, when she was already dating with Carl Philip. There are many bikini photos from the same photoshoot.

How is it possible that he is allowed to officially represent this project with Sofia? He is not supposed to do that!

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!

It would be reasonable, same goes for Madeleines future husband. Like in Spain, there is no need to make the siblings spouses HRHs after a wedding.

Finnish Iltasanomat writes (I donīt like the headline):
The boldest of the swedish royal family comes to Finland
Sofia Hellqvist attends the Strauss concert at the Finlandia Hall in Helsinki on the 5th January. Sofia receives there a donation for Project Playground, the donation has been collected in Finland.
Sofia Hellqvist Suomeen - Ilta-Sanomat

The Strauss concerts are a big event in Finland, many "big finnish names" are invited to these concerts and it is well covered in the media (not in TV). The concerts are produced by Patrick Lagus, who is a member of a finnish noble family Lagus.

From a blog about society and celebrities:
Sofia will attend both concerts at the Finlandia Hall, on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th January
How long has this project of Sofia attending the concert been, spokesperson of the Strauss concerts, Maija Koski?
- We have dealt with this during the autumn. The producer of the concert, Patrick Lagus, has had ten years ago connections to a foundation which functions in Cape Town, Sofia has also participated at itīs work. Mr. Lagus has not met Sofia, but among other things this connection helped to get this project successful.
Will Sofia arrive alone?
- She will come to Finland with her sister Lila.
As far it is known now, Sofia wonīt give any interviews, but she has promised to be photographed by the media at the event for the guests on Thursday.

Sofia had given an interview to finnish tabloid Iltasanomat, because of her visit to Finland next week. The interview was at the paper version of Iltasanomat. Hereīs some things about the article and interview:

The benefactor arrives to Finland! (That was the headline of the story)

- I have been only once before in Finland, when I was much younger. It is great to be able to experience Finland as an adult. Iīm thrilled and grateful about that I can distribute the message of our project now also to Finland.
For Sofia the year 2009 was a milestone, because then she met two persons, who became very important in her life, Carl Philip and the other founder of PP, Frida Vesterberg.
- I and Frida were introduced by our mutual friends, because we had the same visions and the same passion for charity work. We started to plan our joint project right the next day.
Sofia has worked at charity persistently since she was a teenager.
- I was 17 years old, when I first went to Africa. I had toys, pens and books with me. My parents didnīt prevent me to fulfill my own dream. I understood at a very early stage, that on the long run the trips arenīt enough. The anxiety of the people makes me sometimes so frustrated that I could explode. It is unbelievable, how much the people have to fight for the basic requirement and how little help they get. After Ghana I understood, that the case of the children is very important. Nowadays I work from Sweden by collecting assets. Frida lives and works in South Africa.

Sofia has also other distresses in her life. In Sweden they follow the whole time her because she is living with the prince, and the writings of her life before or the suspicions of princess Madeleine havenīt been easy for Sofia. During the autumn, the couple spent a lot of time in Africa, away from the reports of the Swedish court in the press.
- This break was good to my soul. Of course I have spent a lot of time in Africa before, and it has meant a lot of work. Now our organisation has 14 employees and we will employ some more, which means that there is a lot paper work also.
While asked about the highlight of her latest trip to Africa:
- We had a family day with the children on the 10th December. They were given their Christmas gifts, for many of them these were the only gifts. The happy faces of the children will stay in my mind for a long time.
It looks like that Sweden is going to have their own “Princess of the Heart”.

** The reporter has surely fallen for Sofia and written a very sugary story (the reporter was a man).

If you date a royal and the relationship become serious or you've dated a long period of time, your life will be examined by the press, by the parents of the royal, and others who have an interest in the relationship. If you have any skeltons in your closet, they will probably find them. That comes with the terrority of being in a relationship with a royal.

The siblings of the royal may or may not like you and this is no different from any other family.

I wonder who is funding Sofia and all her "activities". Wouldnt be surprised if it was the Swedish taxpayer via CP allowance via King CG.

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

Why is it so difficult to believe that she really does serious work and not just "activities" with her "Project Playground"? And why the hell should CP pay for anything? Or rather why shouldn't this project not be possible without his help? Would anyone of you think the same ifit wouldn't be Sofia but any other girl?

And why is it so hard to give her the benefit of doubt? This turns more and more into a witch-hunt. Sofia doesn't deserve this. Not when she behaves as perfectly okay as she does right now.
