Since we do NOT have an official announcement so far I would say that's just pure speculation. We just have to wait and see.

Won't know until there's a palace announcement. The media has been speculating for some time now.

Until the court gives an official press release about the engagement, everything is speculation. The swedish and international press have been sure for the last two years that soon Carl Philip and Sofia will get engaged but it hasn't happened.

I believe Madeleine has that role already. Instead, Sofia is praised excessively and portrayed as a successor of the Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.

I don't think anyone has praised Sofia Hellqvist in that kind of manner.

Agreed. Madeleine gets all the negative press - she has of course herself caused the most of it. But Sofia is always praised, perhaps until if they ever get engaged. I have a feeling that a part of the press is waiting for that day.

Thank god the press is less "brutal" in Sweden than in the UK.
And yes, they already brought all gossip on her past again and again, so there is no more "news" to write today than her charity.... and she is not wearing such offensive clothes either any more.

So yes, for sure in the beginning this will happen. Then it depends very much on Sophia, how "good" she will fulfill her new role. If she is behaving like Sarah, then she will become the bad girl as well.
But then it is her fault.

Stoppa pressarna quotes Svensk Damtidning's article.
Carl Philip and Sofia have decided to move to Villa Solbacken which Carl Philip inherited from Prince Bertil. The 250-square meters house is now emptied and a large renovation will be done. The decision can be seen as a sign that Carl Philip and Sofia want to live together in the future too. A source told to Svensk Damtidning that they will not move before the wedding.

Annika Sönnerberg, the Deputy Director of the Information and Press Department denies Svensk Damtidning's information:
- It is certainly not actual now. No decisions has been made about Villa Solbacken.

Thoughts on Sofia's wedding tiara?

Honestly, I would love to see the Laurel Wreath, or the Cameo, as I think they are both stunning! Cameos are my favorite, and we know that it isn't 100% for queens, and future queens, as it was worn by one of the kings sisters.

Maybe the laurel wreath of Princess Lilian is a long stretch, but perhaps Victoria will lend it out!

Thoughts?

I know they are not officially engaged yet, but it looks like it is inevitable... So I am excited for another royal wedding in Sweden...

She will be a beautiful bride for sure!

Cameo Tiara for Sofia - never! Madeleine didn't wear it, so Sofia shouldn't wear it either. And Laurel Wreath is Victoria's tiara now, and I certainly hope that Victoria will not loan it to Sofia. Laurel Wreath has belonged to three lovely ladies, crown princess Margaretha, princess Lilian and now crown princess Victoria. Sofia isn't at the same category at all. If they never get married, I would hope that Sofia wears no tiara, just a diamond necklace put to her hair. But if she insists to have a tiara, either of the button tiaras would be fine.

I am always having a laugh when I see these two in recent times, CP looks like a sad and bored clochard, and then Sofia with her celebrity attitude.
I dont see them married soon at all, but I am sure she will hang there until the bitter end (marriage or split).

I agree 100%!!And the diamond necklace on her head made me laugh

She's very beautiful but I don't like her very much obviuosly I wish them happiness ,he really look a bit sad in the last photos.....or maybe he was just annoyed.

I don't think he looks sad either, but she's smiling and how dare she do such a thing.

Oh, I know! Smiling in public! And she's even got hold of his hand! The brazen little hussy!

What I see there is a couple out together and probably having a private joke between them. In one of those pics CP has the hint of a mischievous little smile on his face. I'd like to see the previous and following frames.
