I suspected Maxima's attendance wasn't a guarantee now that she's Queen but your point is valid and it's precisely why I expressed curiosity about the which of the Dutch royals will be attending. Senior royals have been known to attend weddings of junior royals.
None of the junior Dutch royals are attending the wedding either...quite disappointing since they're almost always present at such events.

nothing has been confirmed yet as far as I know, so these could all be rumors but i dont think that the little number of foreign royals attending has anything to do with princess madeleine not being the heir. King Carl Gustaf and the Queen attended the weddings of prince joachim(1st marriage), infanta christina, King Harald and Queen Sonja attended prince joachim's first wedding , Queen Margrethe attended princess's martha louise's wedding and she had just given up her HRH, Queen Sofia attended the wedding of Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg so there has to be some other reason since reigning monarchs have attended weddings of lesser royals and non reigning houses

looks as though BBC,CNN,SKY NEWS and Euronews will not be covering it

Nobody dressed in Natan is something to look forward to though.
Had forgotten about Princess Margriet and Pieter van Vollenhoven and family,I agree its a pity!

I'm not advocating that they actually put her on to full time work while she is so young but a few fun and /or educational trips with Granny could be a blast
OMG! Love that idea! I mean I really love it! What a blast for Beatrix and C-A. And on the job training from one of the best! WA and Maxima should seriously consider this. Would love to see.

I suspect trips like that may start to happen when she is 16 and older. For now, I suspect minor royal events will not have much Dutch attendance.

Why is everyone in overdrive re: Netherlands representation at this wedding. The only thing that has happened is a design house said that it isn't dressing anyone for it. The design house doesn't speak for the Dutch royals, does it?

Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst (RVD), which informs about the work of the Royal House, announced yesterday, that no one of the Royal Family will attend at the wedding.

Swedish Television will have the wedding send and commented in Swedish, but since Chris is American/British, I think that there is some english at the wedding itself.

The king's solicitor Axel Calissendorff to Svensk Damtidning about Chris' title (the article is in the printed version):
"Like every head of the State, the king decides almost all of the titles at his court. Because mr Christopher O'Neill is not a swedish citizen and continues his business, he can never be a member of the Royal Court. It has never happened that the king in a matter like this would have given any kind of royal title".
Calissendorff confirms that Madeleine will continue to be a member of the Royal House after the wedding and be a HRH. She will stay at the succession order, but if hers and Chris O'Neill's children will get prince or princess titles, to that question Calissendorff can not give any decision now.

How can her children be prince/princess without Chris being a prince himself? Would the king really go as far as to give titles of prince/princess to his grandchildren of their father is not titled and is not a member of the house? I could maybe see this if it were Victoria as she is the heir. I could be understanding the article wrong, but I was just wondering.

George VI of Great Britain did it.

During his reign, his eldest daughter, then Princess Elizabeth, was his heir. When she married Philip Mountbatten he was not created a prince of Great Britain, but rather just HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, while also either renouncing or simply discontinuing the use of his Greek titles. Their first two children, Charles and Anne, were given princely titles by their grandfather - until their mother became Queen, Charles and Anne were Prince(ss)es of Edinburgh.

The same happened to the children of Princess Margriet and Pieter van Vollenhoven. Still, I suspect that Madeleine's children will not get any title. It will be interesting to see if the same happens for the children of prince Carl Philip.

Out of curiosity: did Natan release a statement on their website or did they announce this in an email (to you)?

When Victoria got married, the City of Stockholm organized a Love Party of 14 days with several music and cultural events. Now when Madeleine gets married, there is nothing. The Commissioner of Finance (Mayor) Sten Nordin says that they have never asked about that from the court. There will just be flowers and flags on the wedding day. But of course they are as happy about Madeleine's marriage than Victoria's. In June 2010 the governors hosted Victoria, Daniel and the royal family a dinner, not this time. The reason is that Madeleine is just a princess.
Johanna Lejon from Svensk Damtidning says that Victoria was the heir of the throne and it was more strict with ceremonies, a big part of official Sweden were invited. Madeleine wants to have the wedding private and the king pays it.
