^ Truth be told I don't think English-speaking countries cares either, it only people on the royal forums that seems to cares.

This is so bad. Emma should come to the baptism and shut this mess down for good. Now the press is talking about Sofia vs. Madeleine vs. Emma - two days before the christening. If there is even a germ of truth to this, this makes CP and Sofia look bad. Putting out statements that the royal couple and the princess couple decided the guest list (i.e. keep Emma out) is tough to believe when Emma was at the "godmothers' dinner" the night before. The "illness" statement from Emma looks thin. @carlota - the press is laying this on Sofia's doorstep; and @Mbruno - any good will Sofia may have built up with her royal appearances may be undone by the perception of her being jealous, insecure and immature. Carl Philip looks like a jerk to ruin his nephew's/godson's day.

Read the prior posts and you may understand what the issue supposedly is.

Awkward.
Emma and Carl Philip split under friendly circumstances (they even share the dog they had for some time) as compared to Madeleine's split that was based on some less than proper behaviour. Doubtful that Emma would be such a close friend of Madeleine if she had cheated on Carl Philip. So the two circumstances are not comparable.

What's ridiculous is that story from the family counselor. It's total B.S.

What trauma could Emma cause within the family? If she committed some crime against them it's one thing. What has she done? Or is it that Carl Philip doesn't want to face an ex he reportedly wronged? Or Sofia doesn't want to be compared to a long term former love that has no scandal in her past?

These stories that are meant to staunch the bleeding end up opening the vein more.

what do you know exactly the relations of each other? nothing, you are not in their lives. Think you know everything about a press that says one thing one day and the next day another.

For sofia, you do not like, everything is pretext to criticize.
yes she posed naked and then it does not make her a woman inferior to others. You want to talk about the past of the king, to fool the queen, and sex scandals. Royal are like any other, except that their position can often hide things.

Lindwall writes that there will be six godparents and Madeleine and Chris meet them today, obviously there is a rehearsal of the christening.
Now Lindwall's "list" from where Madeleine and Chris have chosen the godparents are according to him Carl Philip (already confirmed), Madeleine's friends Natalie Werner and Katarina von Horn, Chris's sisters Natascha Abensperg und Traun, Annalisa O'Neill, Stefanie O'Neill and Karen O'Neill, Madeleine's cousin Gustaf Magnuson and Chris's bestman and friend Cedric Notz.
At Leonore's godparents the surprise was Alice Bamford.

Six godparents is a lot of people!!!
Your brother, your sisters in law, your best man, your cousin, one or two best friends
Seems already overcrowded.
You have to draw the line.

Anyway it seems a big story made from nothing and it is very boring zzzzz

Uhm, I think that 6 godparents are fine to me... And it hasn't been officially confirmed so I wouldn't make a big deal.

Nicolas will get his monogram and coat of arms too.

Awkward.
I personally don't think it is awkward at all. Look at all the people that have children receiving their confirmation in church and the prior husband and all his family is there along with present husband and family. Silly to be awkward, that would be immature. Proper adults just gets on with it. The event is not about them it is about the main person or people involved in the ceremony. Only a selfish or self-centered person would even think to put their feeling or wants before that of the purpose of the event.

It would be like saying that it would be awkward to attend any event knowing that there would also be someone there you have already been to bed with. Heavens, in this day-and -age, no on would be leaving the house!

I personally believe that this is just another media "crap stirring" made up story. It is absolutely no one's business why or for what reason Emma is not attending. It is her life and not answerable to anyone. The mutations in the media just like to make up "stories" to sell papers and people fall for them.

The chose of the godparents shows that Chris's relationship with his sisters from his father's side isn't very close. I expected that one of them would have been chosen as a godparent now.
Photos from the godparents arriving to the rehearsal, Katarina von Horn has Nicolas on her arms. There was also Ewa Westling with Estelle.

Emma was at Madeleine's hen party in Switzerland. Emma was at Madeleine's wedding, like all of those who were at the hen party. All of those who were at the hen party, except Emma, were at Leonore's christening. Emma has been seen every summer with Madeleine and her friends spending time together and this week when Madeleine arrived to Stockholm, Emma was with her when she spent an evening with her closest friends. So Emma would just miss two christenings of the children of one of her closest friends, just because she wasn't interested to attend? No way. The reason is very clear.

Is Madeleine not a grown woman who makes her own decisions? Why would what Sofia or her husband want be taken into consideration that is ridiculous. The press like stirring up drama where there is none. The problem is people buy the nonsense and believe it and blame Sofia. If Emma is there and a God parent fine if not I'm sure the decision will have been made for a good reason.

They weren't on a lunch, they were at a dinner. There were also Emma Pernald and Charlotte Kreuger Cederlund. From Madeleine's good friends Lovisa de Geer, Louise Cronstedt and Sofi Fahrman weren't at the dinner. Sofi lives partly abroad. Not all Madeleine's girlfriends can be godparent to Nicolas.
