@JR76 - so the Riksdag hands out the orders? I thought the sovereign did, at least according to Wikipedia (update needed?)

Here's a Twitter GIF Carl Philip winking at the godmother after she gave the reading:

Really, dude? Your wife is across the aisle. SMH.

We don't know who put Daniel the sash after the wedding ceremony. This photo (and the versions of it), which is in the internet, is from Victoria's and Daniel's wedding book. The book tells that it is taken at the Royal Palace just before the official wedding photos were taken.

Lol, it looked more like a "well done", affirmation of a sort to accknowledge that she made it through. Hardly a flirt :P

Not exactly, since 1995 it's the government who decides which foreign citizens who can receive the orders, but the monarch who decides when the members of the royal family receives their orders.
Quote:
Enligt den gällande ordenskungörelsen administreras utdelningen av Serafimer- och Nordstjärneordnarna av ordenskapitlet vid Kungl. Maj:ts orden, där statschefen är stormästare, i enlighet med de stadgar som regeringen godkänner. Regeringen beslutar vilka utlänningar som kan tilldelas ordnar men ordenskapitlet kan utan regeringens förord förläna ordnar till medlemmar av Sveriges kungahus. Denna ändring skedde 1995 eftersom regeringen ansåg att framtida monarker skulle kunna bära de ordnar som de delar ut.
From Wikipedia.

As there haven't been any official notification that Sofia have got the Seraphim or the North Star order, I doubt she has got it yet. Perhaps she'll get one before the Nobel Prize festivities, perhaps not.

Which is exactly why Lilian didn't get the Seraphim at the time of her marriage in 1976. Instead she got it in 1995 as soon as the King was free to hand it to members of the Royal family.

Jesus. Pushing it, are we? There was absolutely nothing flirty over that wink. "The godmother", Christopher's sister, had just said a prayer, and as hernameispekka said, this wink was an acknowledgement to her from CP. Nothing more.

No, not this time. It was shortened to just the cermony with no talk stuff before or after either. Probably as a compromise between not showing it at all or doing a full broadcast.

Indeed a masterful acknowledgement....and an impressive use of muscular control!

Most Swedes doesn't bow to the altar these days the main reason being that they don't know they're supposed to. I do but I'm more often than not the only one doing so. We're not a churchgoing people and in general most of us only take part in a church service for christenings, weddings and funerals with the odd service at Christmas now and then.

Victoria, Daniel and Estelle leaving. Victoria took photos, I guess from the Nicolas's monogram made of apples to the park.

It was told earlier that at the reception the Prime minister and Speaker give a present, the royal court staff gives a present and the County gives a present.

Yes, I understand why it's done. I just didn't know that it was done in a classical Swedish church, that's all :) I've never seen anyone do it here :)

I assume this was directed at my post.

It's clear to me that the SRF women coordinate colors and outfits. We have evidence of that. I see Madeleine making an effort to actively embrace her new sister-in-law (at least in public, and I see no reason she would not be doing it privately).

It appears to me now that red (of some varieted hue) was a secondary color at the wedding (among a wash of blue and gray). The red hair piece on Madeleine did not go with the color of the dress she was wearing imo, but it did pick up on Sofia's dress (which was the most modest length of all the ladies sitting in her row btw. Sofia is definitely making every effort to be a good royal. I commend her. She has my vote these days).

Yep. Fussy baby, like Madeleine was.

Yep. Chip off the 'ol Madeleine.

Princess Madeleine looked great. I like it so much better if she has her hair up.
Crown Princess Victoria looked lovely in purple.
Princess Estelle and Princess Leonore were adorable.
I didn't really like the outfit of Princess Sofia.

I am surprised that Princess Christina was not among the guests. Is it known why she didn't attend?
