Well, all we know yet is that Chris will make his vow in his own language.
This doesn't necessarily mean that he will not make any effort to learn the language or say a little bit in Swedish at some point during the wedding, perhaps during his speech. Let's wait and see. Why are people always so quick in critizising?

The police will help singer Peter Jöback with a police car or motorcycle to get right after the wedding service from the Royal Palace to Arlanda Airport. Peter will sing at the Tony Awards the title song of the Phantom of the Opera on Sunday.

It could be that also from this will come some negative comments, to use a police to escort a singer who performs at a royal wedding...

But Silvia's family are uncles, cousins, etc. of the bride. That's a different case, imo.

Will Carl Philip and Sofia's wedding be like this or will he get more because he is the only son and second child of the king?
W-A and Maxima aren't there because they are not Prince and Princess anymore and everyone else probably had engagements. Philippe and Matilde are in USA. Don't know why Spain didn't sent anyone.

Carl Philips future wedding will probably be similar to this one. Queen Margrethe will likely be there then because she is his godmother.

Apparantly a part of the wedding will take place in English, with Madeleine saying "Ja" at the altar and Chris O'Neil saying: "I do".

It may be a small detail in a nice marriage, that will hopefully last a lifetime, but I don't think it's elegantly handled and I would like to hit Chris O'Neil on the head with a shovel.

Good greif, the man is marrying a genuine Princess from a genuine monarchy, - in Sweden on top of that! Is it really too much to ask that he respects the Swedes by at least learning to say one word in Swedish? It's pronounced like Ya in Ya'll. Surely he can learn that.

He may not give a hoot about royalty, and he may roll in money and he may be an important man in his own right but he is marrying a princess, and princesses are public property of their countries.
Sorry, it's not elegant and it's not a good way to endear himself to the Swedes.
IMO , there's is nothing wrong with saying your wedding vows in your native language - I suppose that it probably feels more real this way and sounds more honest and genuine ( anyway I don't know how wedding vows should sound, we Greeks just shut up during the whole religious wedding service ). But even if it is perceived as an insult to the Swedes he is not the one at fault. True , he probably doesn't care at all, or cares very little about the Swedish monarchy, the public perception, protocolls and all that stuff and that is fine. He is just an American why should he care? He wasn't raised to appreciate the Swedish Monarchy. But Madeleine was and if anyone should be blamed it's solely her. She is the one who was raised a Princess. She is the one who should care about the public perception. She is the one who is set on a different standar.And , honestly, she is the one who should ensure that the man she would choose would act accordingly - so if Chris O'Neill is not what Sweden's people expected, it's her fault because she either didn' t care from the beggining about finding a "proper consort' or she simply decided to dismiss those criterias completely

Infanta Elena is the eldest child of Their Majesties,Cristina is the third child but there's not a chance that Spain would send the Duchess of Palma to represent the Borbóns!

I didn't see Elisabeth Zimmermann's name at the official guest list, but maybe those who work for the royal family aren't there.
Couldn't agree more, i think Ternert needs to learn whento say no comment. Instead he goes into great detail and depth whilst at the same time making the situation worse.

I think its perfectly reasonable that olle and Ewa may want to look after Estelle on the wedding day or the night before, though I'm sure they have a good relatiosnhip with the Crown Princess family i'm sure like most grandparents they love anexcuse to be with their grandchild. What would you pick, your daughter in laws sisters wedding or looking after your grandchild??

Didn't think of it that way. You may have a point. Personally, I don't think Madeleine cares. She's a Princess, found a well off husband and will be living in NY.

They way people are carrying on about the lack of Dutch representation you would almost think WA had declared war on Sweden. Usually such angitation is saved for the BRF because only the monarchs youngest son and his wife are sent to such events. People seem much less fussed about the lack of Belgian or Spanish representation though. Its only a wedding after all.

Sorry but what does 'being broke' have to do with going to a potential friends wedding?

If you look at the Swedish Kings siblings, they do not do much official stuff. Why would anyone expect Victoria's sibling to do much official work. I personally think Maddie and Chris will live in NY and drift further and further away from royal life. She could see the future and chose for herself what she wanted.
