Apart from the charity that Sofia is involved with, what does she actually do. ? Work-wise, that is.

As far as I know, she started a yoga-clothing business "Drop of Mindfulness". I don't know if she is still involved in it.

A photo of Sofia at the blogpost from today at the website of Project Playground. However, we can't know when the photo has been taken.
But while looking at Sofia's hair, it looks more brown than black, so I think that the photo has been taken recently.

Lord, have mercy! That would be too much to take.

The SRF spin will have to do overtime for each partner separately, they couldnt cope with both at the same time.

I dont think Swedes have warmed to Chris in any way and I doubt that many people buy Sofia's whitewash.

In addition, another double engagement will bring back unpleasant memories connected with Madeleine's first one. I think Carl Philip and Sofia will announce their engagement some time after the christening, while Madeleine and Chris (assuming they plan to get engaged soon) will have to wait until after his wedding.

That's a very sweet picture.
Sofia does look more relaxed - and it shows.

I would say that the relationship between Madeleine and Chris when it comes to publicity in the media has more in common with how the earlier relationships of Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine have been, media have been interested in photos but the couple haven't made any major fuss about their relationship until it's been time for an engagement. When it comes to the relationship between Carl Philip and Sofia, I get a feeling that they themselves and the media have more or less been trying to forcefeed the public with media attention from the beginning, and to show off what a perfect couple they are, into making Sofia the only possible choice for Carl Philip.

I agree with you.

Chris doesnt strike me as the person who will come to Sweden and embrace royal life beside his wife. Unlike Sofia, he doesnt seem to be keen on attention. In case they get married, I am sure they continue to live abroad with Chris working as a banker.

I certainly would not expect him to give up his career to become a royal support act. As with John Ambler I would expect him to continue his banking career in the US and his wife to live there with him, returning to Sweden on an as needed basis for major family events.

This is the website of Drop of Mindfulness, Sofia is not mentioned there anymore, so I don't know if she is still involved in it.

From Expressen

Sofia forced the king and Silvia
May go to the baptism
http://www.expressen.se/ImageHandler.axd?imageFormat=firstColumn&guid=84e3e11d-d2ee-48a7-8cbf-8a2be73a9e0e

And how has she got the power to force the king and the queen to allow her to attend the baptism? Oh, these tabloids... On Tuesday we will see if this is true.

What?? I'm also at a loss to see how she can force the King and Queen to let her attend the Christening. Well, if she goes, Chris has to be invited as well (whether or not he decides to turn up). If it's true that she demanded to attend, I hope the court has the sense not to seat her with the family.

I'm pretty sure whether Sofia attends or not, it will not be because she forced the King and Queen. How would she do that? And more importantly, she wouldn't be stupid enough to make an ultimatum to her potential in-laws. If she does attend though, that's pretty much a confirmation of an imminent engagement.

If one is to believe the article, Sofia put pressure on Carl Philip and he in his turn talked his parents into accepting Sofia as a guest.
