Well, they have a long time ahead of them to decide about the date! I don't think that we will have a date about the wedding any time soon! Perhaps at the end of this year we will know!

Well, excuse me but not many people are interested in royals and the weddings will not definitely make Sweden a tourist attraction! People that will visit the country then, will plan their trips because they like the country and not just because they want to see the weddings or whatsoever!!

You are actually wrong here; Swedish press reports a few weeks after the engagement of Crown Princess Victoria said that hotels in the inner city of Stockholm had already received such a significantly higher number of reservations for the wedding date that they were close to being booked out in advance.
While Princess Madeleine's wedding might get less attention, it will certainly represent an added tourist attraction as well.

Duke, according to a few posters.

If you go a few pages back you will have a small discussion about what title he will get and the children and why

Oh, I had no idea about that! I am sorry! But still the people travelling there might not be foreigners but Swedes! So not exactly tourists!

Never underestimate the power of a royal watcher. And if there were people who were not interested in royals...why are we on this site? And why do tons of royal sites exsits? There are people on this Forum I am sure who if time and money permit, would attend just to be in the crowd when Victoria marries Daniel.

Wrong.Many planned trips because of the wedding(s).Some hotels,well,many actually are already fully booked,
as I already said almost two months ago.And certainly not by Swedes only.

Well Congratulatons to them, wonder what kind of wedding they will have, probably not as big as her sister Victoria's will be.

I don't think Madeleine and Jonas look anything alike. Madeleine has a wide face and large eyes. Jonas has a narrow face and small eyes.
Victoria and Daniel however, do look very much alike. They could be brother and sister!

Jonas proposed Madeleine the 12th June in Capri. Because Madeleine couldn´t use her engagement ring in public before the engagement was made official, Jonas gave Madeleine the day after the proposal his Rolex Submariner -watch as a secret mark of the engagement. Madeleine used it at Victoria´s birthday celebrations.

There were reports in the press that Princess Madeleine announced her engagement to steal some of the focus away from Princess Victoria (which is rubbish I'm sure). So the King took all his children and his two future sons-in-law on a walk around the palace. He is showing the unity of the family and that there is no rivalry.

Im upset! Sorry but I just have to tell this....
On 12/8 I bought both of the evening papers here in Sweden because of the engagement between princess Madeleine and mr Bergström... I wanted som nice pics and so on.... AND when I opened the first one there was (as first picture) a HUUUUUGE picture over 2 pages with the REPORTER from the paper shaking hands w Jonas Bergström and with Jonas and Madeleine standing in the background!!!!

I cant beleve it!!! Why on eart and whole universe do this paper tink the readers want a pic of the reporter ??? at this occation??? at this time??? at all???

You can watch it here (but here it is quite small....):

Well, if you know Johan T. Lindwall's style of writing in his royal 'reporting', you inevitably realize that he must have some ego issues.
A guy who thinks it's worthwhile to fill his column by writing a report on nothing else but how expertly he himself managed to jog along the running course of Victoria & Daniel on Öland (like he did about two weeks ago) does have problems...
The way he is posing on the picture is horrid and decidedly tacky.
It's funny too, although a rather bad joke.

Hmmm, yes I agree with everything you write above.... and I know this is not the forum for complaining on JTL as reporter/human being but this was just TOO MUCH! And no, I usually dont read what he is writing (for well known reasons) I prefare to avoid him... (= not buying expressen) but this was an special occation...

And Its a v good idea to take it (the huge 2 paged pic of JTL and PM och JB in the background) from the funny side and laugh about it instead of talking ***** of this guy

Above is a link to the family tree of Jonas Bergström. Are pictures of his family available?
