I really believe that after the wedding, the engagement will be announced.

You are, quite, correct. It is time. They seem to love each other and it is nice. Other "Royal" houses such as the Windsors, have accepted mistresses, why not this woman?

I'd love to see am engagement announced if only because Sofia will be a stunningly attractive bride.

I think it'll happen soon. She's very clearly been accepted by the family.

Svensk Damtidning (which always writes very positive articles about Sofia) writes that Sofia's and Carl Philip's relationship has been stormy, they have separated many times and returned together again. The reason to the rows has mostly been that Sofia hasn't felt that she is accepted by the royal family. She has felt hurt and demanded that Carl Philip should do something. Sofia has been seen outwards as shy, but at home it has been she who has put pressure on Carl Philip, everyone thinks that she controls their relationship. Carl Philip has sometimes tried to protest when Sofia has told her demands or wishes. Every time Sofia has got what she wanted.
According to Svensk Damtidning's knowledge the relationship was extra turbulent just weeks before Estelle's christening, this is confirmed also by Johan T Lindwall at his book "Madeleine - prinsessan privat". Sofia was stubborn and threatened Carl Philip that their relationship would end if he wouldn't get her a place at the Chapel. They had many fights and Carl Philip went finally to talk with the king and told how serious things were with Sofia, she had to be invited. The king saw how serious this was and so Sofia and Chris were invited. Right now Sofia feels that she is accepted.

I think if an engagement is announced this summer it will be after Victoria's Birthday.

Carl Philip and Sofia at the courtyard of the Royal Palace on Friday, with their dog Siri. Sofia left after Peter Wixtröm had taken these photos for Aftonbladet.

I think their new puppy is very cute; I particularly like the photo of Carl Philip kissing it. Siri is also a sweet name for a dog IMO.

It seems obvious that the court had called to Aftonbladet's photographer, so that these nice photos could be taken. I don't think that the photographer just went to the courtyard to wait if someone of the royal family would come out from the Palace.

At the latest Svensk Damtidning there was a photo where Sofia carries the puppy at her bag when they came out from m/s Victorina III from Carl Philip's birthday cruise.

You can clearly see those photos were staged. Cute puppy though.

When the king's solicitor Axel Calissendorff commented to Svensk Damtidning about the title of Chris O'Neill, Svensk Damtidning asked also about what is going to happen with Carl Philip's future wife. Calissendorff didn't want to comment that. Svensk Damtidning has talked with many sources from the court and everyone say that it is the king - and no one else - who decides about the possible princess title. Sofia Hellqvist will not automatically become a princess just because she gets married with a prince (if it happens). According to the sources of Svensk Damtidning, it is clear already now, that Sofia Hellqvist will never get a title of HRH.

We have to remember, that this is speculation ...

I agree and it wouldnt make sense at all to possibly make Sofia HRH. Jonas would 'only' have become a Duke had his marriage with Madde taken place, my guess is that the same will happen to Sofia, most likely she would become the Duchess of Värmland.

I wonder what excuse they would use to deprive her of the female version of her husbands titles? Traditionally men have not derived titles from their wives, but women traditionally do take the female version of their husbands titles as we can see from the current kings sisters (Baroness, Princess, Mrs) and with his late aunt HRH Princess Lilian Duchess of Halland.
With Chris they say he gets no titles because he is not Swedish and he is involved in business. They cannot use that same excuse with Sofia.

Honestly the duchess title would be quite appropriate in my view! Her confort would come from the official statute, the money, invitations to participate in everything... spotlights etc
Please correct me if I am wrong, but the husbands of the sisters of the king, are not any prince neither!? or any title? even if they live in Sweden.
