If the reports are true, why are they doing all this before an engagement is announced?

I have no doubt that it's true. Prince Daniel got the same kind of training before their engagement was announced. The idea is that Daniel (and Sofia) should be prepared for what's waiting. As soon as the engagement is announced, the media pressure on Sofia will be even bigger.

I think it's a smart move of the royal court to do this.

According to the Swedish Royal Court, Daniel's induction program started on January 2010, they got engaged in February 2009.

Maybe officially, but Daniel has said that he's been trained long before that. I'll try to find the source. But there are also outside reports. This article from december 2004 talks about how a team around Daniel was training him as early as 2004. They didn't get engaged until five years later.

The tabloids said that Daniel had used a PR-firm to get help, but it hasn't been confirmed. And he had many CEO's as clients at his gyms he could ask advice from.

Now since the Royal Family is on vacation, the tabloids focuse on the "Future princess"

According the royal experts an engagement is approaching with big steps.
- When Sofia marries the prince, it is important that she has a basic knowledge of history and political science, and knows how the court and the organization works. She must also know the Bernadotte family and the links to the other royal houses. The king and queen like Sofia, she has thick skin and a big heart, tells Aftonbladet's royal expert Jenny Alexandersson, who calls it "historic" that Sofia got to the official family photo at Madde's banns, the King has bypassed the old tradition of engagement required to belong to the family.
This can be compared with Daniel Westling, who worked a long time to be accepted as one of the royal family.
- Daniel has made the way for both Chris and Sofia. He had the toughest opposition because he married a crown princess, but after all the training and experience he has gained, he does an excellent job and can become an important advisor to Sofia when it is her turn. Sofia will not undergo such a comprehensive induction as Daniel. But she will get the help from the court to learn what it takes to represent at Carl Philip's side. The principal advisers are the king and queen, but also Victoria and of course Daniel are important for Sofia, says Alexandersson.
The royal experts agree that we will not have to wait long for a prince wedding.
Norwegian royal expert Kjell Arne Totland believes that a marriage proposal may have already taken place - secretly.
- The possibility is actually great that the two are already secretly engaged, he said recently to Side2.no.
Even Alexandersson states that the prince and Sofia may have exchanged engagement rings.
- It is possible that the prince and Sofia are already engaged, in which case they keep it as a secret. I haven't seen any of them wearing a ring.

I guess this could be included into "we-are-newspaper-editors-all-other-are-on-vacation-and-we-don't-know-what-to-write" journalism.

Is an engagement announcement coming after Crown Princess Victoria's birthday on 14 July? I take it she has been invited to this!

Sofia has been spending summer with Carl Philip in Solliden during the previous years. She hasn't attended with the royal family at the Victoriadagen (Victoria Day) concert. We will see if there is a change this year.
Almost all the swedish royal experts have said, that if Carl Philip and Sofia are going to get engaged this year, it will happen after the King's 40 year jubilee on the throne on 15th September.

Without invitation - again
That's why Sofia may not attend at the big celebration

I see no reason why she wouldn't come! If she is in with the family, then it should be fine and all will be well. Tabloids sometimes.

Finnish MTV3 quotes the article of Expresssen:
The organizers have confirmed that Sofia Hellqvist will not attend at Victoria's official 36th birthday celebration in Borgholm on Sunday.
The arranger of the concert, Kay Wiestål, says that Sofia will not attend at the official celebration, the concert, which is shown on TV, later she will surely attend at the private celebration at the Solliden Palace.
Ulrika Näsholm from the court press department says that Sofia is not invited.
According to Expressen Sofia will be at the Solliden Palace and she can watch the concert from TV.
Kay Wiestål says that only the court can comment on this, but he sees that it is due to the tradition and the royal etiquette. He reminds, that with Daniel it was the same before the engagement, he didn't attend at the official concert.

Thank you, LadyFinn. Seems to be perfectly reasonable and just SOP. Sofia will be at the Palace with the family, just not at the official event. If Daniel didn't go before the engagement, no wonder Sofia won't.

Sofia Hellqvist is in Gothenburg with the Project Playground Football Club Team B15, they are playing at the Gothia Cup tournament. They won their first match yesterday and lost the other today.
Here's Sofia and her sister Lina with their biggest supporters

Carl Philip and Sofia have moved to another apartment at the same house where they have been living in Djurgården. At the paper the owner is the National Property Board of Sweden, but the taxes are payed by The Royal Djurgården Administration, which takes care of the houses in Djurgården and the Haga and Ulriksdal Palace.
Why the couple has moved is not known, the court hasn't got more information about that and Annika Jeppson from the court press department said: If they are moving so they are moving.

Carl Philip was with Sofia supporting the Project Playground FC yesterday in Gothia Cup in Gothenburg. The PP B15 team got to playoffs in their class but they lost and their games ended. Photos from Borås Tidning.

At the "Vimmelprinsessans blogg" in Svensk Damtidning Anna von Koch tells:
One of my informers overheard a discussion between Sofia Hellqvist and a curious lady in Åhlens (a department store) in Norrköping in the spring.
When the lady realized that it was Sofia before her in the queue, she began to question her. She wondered how Chris really was and Sofia replied that Chris was so nice and he and Madeleine were so in love. The lady even wondered if it was time for Sofia and Carl Philip to proceed to the altar and Sofia replied patiently that they first would focus on Chris' and Madeleine's wedding but eventually ...
Sofia was very sweet and patient with the inquisitive lady.
Sofia om Chris och Madde… Vimmelprinsessan

I find it very odd that "the future princess" is babbling about the Royal Family to an unknown woman at a store...
