I guess what's really important is that Prince Carl Philip seem to be really happy with Sofia Hellqvist and Sofia seems to be really happy with Prince Carl Philip. That is what matters and what counts.

Here I agree, that what matters in any couple otherwise, it's reciprocal love. Their engagement won't be surprise to anybody.

The same old circular arguement. Why not give it a rest until they get an engaged and we see what the reaction in Sweden is.

In the case of Sofia, what is done has been done and you can't change the past.
That is certainly true & I also agree with NGalitzine on this:The same old circular arguement. Why not give it a rest until they get an engaged and we see what the reaction in Sweden is!

So we should all relax & see how this story is going to unfold ...
For all the Sofia-supporters: You can start with preparing celebratory wedding accessoires: Everything with the Swedish flag (yellow/blue) and the couple´s pictures on it will be needed...porcellain,stickers,fan-shirts etc.

Overall, if Carl Philip wants to be with Sofia then fine, but she shouldn't be given the Princess title. Not that my opinion matters, but that's just how I feel.
Kim is a savvy business women as well who has done much more than make a sex tape that was unfortunately released. When Sofia spends millions on a wedding just to get divorced 3mos later then you can start comparing her to Kim. Whether Sofia likes fame or not is the business of Carl Philip. Either he knows about it and doesn't care, or she has grown beyond her younger antics. Just like I hope they get married I also hope she is made a Princess just to piss off those who think they can dictate what Carl Philip and his family do.

Apart from her clothes and her business sense I don´t understand why girls are so crazy for the Kardashians,but hey-I cannot understand everything and some ppl might wonder about my idols as well;-)
I don´t think that Kim´s tape was "unfortunately" released, such kind of ppl do it on purpose and later pretend that they didn´t want it.For Paris Hilton ist was the starting point of her career. Again,I would never ever compare Sofia to any of the Kardashians or to Paris Hilton,we should treat them in a different thread.

Yes, if they go private; as it is, CP and his wife will probably want to represent Sweden ... that's the point of our discussion.

He can marry whom ever he wants; but if he marries her and the Swedish people are not prepared to put up with an erotic model for representation, he could be a nail in the coffin of the Bernadottes as RF of Sweden...

And trust me - CG and Silvia are very much aware; in my mind, the are playing the time-game, and hoping by withholding their consent, to get her out of the picture. Maybe they like her or not ... who knows?

Is the Royal Family really that worried about the Monarchy if Prince Carl Philip marries Sofia? Or is it that some folks on this board are the ones worried about the future of the Swedish Monarchy, if a marriage takes place?

Well,CG scandals have quite shaken the monarchy! Also,shortly before Victoria married, one of the big political parties of Sweden printed a picture of her and a woman in burka and wrote "one of these women needs to ask her father for a permission to marry" (meaning Victoria)....As today,I don´t see any reason why the Royal family should be in trouble-most people look up at Silvia and Victoria in admiration and grew very fond of Daniel and Estelle.IMO-The ladies saved the monarchy-S&V are the most popular members of the Bernadottes!Estelle is of course the big star now,as a cute baby you always win the sympathies

Don't know if Carl Philip and Sofia will take that next step but if they do, the Swedish Monarchy won't be in any trouble. The Monarchy will continue on and people's attention will turn to the wedding coverage. Engagement interview, official engagements, appearances, etc. Life goes on.

CP is now 3rd in line to the thrown. If Victoria has another baby he will drop down. The chances of him getting to the throne are slim and getting slimmer. Let him find love.

You hope they get married to piss off people who think they can dictate Carl Phillips life?? You really need to calm down cause no one on this thread thinks they can dictate someone's life who they've never met. We're all just having a conversation...Not dictating.

But it will take at least 17 years before Victoria's children will be able to represent Sweden, until then Carl Philip and Madeleine and their spouses will have to do.

An article about Sofia's family in Expressen, they haven't published the article in the web version yet.
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BHO64JXCQAEZf1O.jpg:large

The king and the queen haven't met Sofia's family yet. They didn't meet the Westlings either when Victoria and Daniel were dating. Eva O'Neill they have met already before Madeleine and Chris were engaged.

Although Sofia is certainly not the first or worst with these charity balls/dinners, I always found the concept of throwing a party to save the poor/sick rather cynic. I am sure that these functions make a lot of money and are thus useful, but I just find it in bad taste.
