Very odd IMO that Sofia is there and no one from Chris'family. Anyway Sofia's skirt is too short... Don't like that girl at all

I'm not a huge fan of Sofia's either, but I liked what she was wearing today and don't think her coat and dress were too short. Her hairstyle was also nice. Victoria's outfit was of a similar length. Perhaps she was there because Carl Philip wanted an escort, or because the Royal Family have accepted her and have allowed her to attend more royal events. (She attended Queen Silvia's birthday celebrations last December.)

It looks as if Victoria's foot has improved a lot, she's not wearing crutches anymore, but a small cast.

I think it would be nice to have the christening on her parents´ first wedding anniversary....
Thanks for your reply. Perhaps we'll see a christening in May or June, or even April. I also agree with you, that would be nice and romantic – Leonore's christening in the same place and on the same day that her parents got married.

Victoria's dress was just above her knees while Sofia's was covering half of her thights, no comparison, sorry. Whoever would be wearing such a dress it would be always too short for this occassion.

I'm still not sure what to think about this gathering, they tried to make it small family affair, yet except the immediate family from Leonore's mother's side nearly everyone else was missing.

Very nice that Sofia attended and sat right behind the royal family.

The King, because of his own history of losing his father, may be particularly sensitive to the order of succession. Victoria may not be able to have any more chldren, we are not privy to that and she will soon be 37. CP's girl friend seems to be stepped up. I believe Leonore's parents were talked into this "interim" decision by the King. He is the one to give the titles, he is the one who is responsible for the succession.
The royal family looks wonderful. What a nice ritual to thank God for a new baby.
Sophia has never looked better, imo.
As I understand it, even previously there were no restrictions on who a Swedish king could marry. For a prince, on the other hand, the king's approval as well as the government's approval (on the king's recommendation) is required. The 1810 law stipulated that a prince would lose his rank if he married a woman who didn't belong to the nobility, but in 1938 that was changed to a Swedish woman who didn't belong to the nobility.

So Carl Gustaf could marry Silvia because he was already the king and as the king, he could approve his uncle's marriage.

I'm not a Sofia fan ... but, enough already! Just announce the engagement and get on with it. Why else would she be seated behind Queen Silvia?

People in Sweden ... she can't be half as bad as another "less than likely" royal in another European country. Wink, wink, nod, nod :)

Indeed, announce it and get it over with.

A pity that this service became the Sofia show, according to a newspaper. Compared to previous events she seemed a bit more demure though, less smiling and posing. The rest of the family seemed to be attending a funeral service, they looked a bit tired and not in a good mood.

Sofia is tacky as usual and was the only one who was smiling... A "Te Deum" should be a solemn but joyful occasion... It seemed almost a funeral :-(

Sophia looked lovely. Those who hold obverse opinions are lacking compassion. She seems to be a lovely young lady, pasts are pasts. Being the king and having affairs is just as tacky. Chris' family wasn't there, because they don't live there and it isn't that important to anything.

Personally I wished Sofia would have the decency to stay away from family gatherings until she is the official fiancée.
But whatever..
Is Leonore actually getting a coat of arms and monogram as well or does she have to wait till her 18th birthday?

Sofia wouldn't have been there if she wasn't invited by the royal family.

Carl Philip and Sofia have been living together for a number of years, so it seems natural that she would be invited to family events. It would be a snub otherwise. In (somewhat) keeping with protocol, she doesn't usually enter with the royal family or join them in the front row or for photo ops --- although she was in the official photo from Chris and Madeleine's lysning. She doesn't get to appear at the events that are of a more official nature though such as the Nobel banquet and the king's 40th anniversary.

Yet Daniel was never invited, nor was Jonas or Chris. I recall the talk when Chris attended an opera event with Madeleine. It was not considered a snub then
