I must admit for once I am enjoying the complaints about lack of representation from the DRF instead of the usual moaning about the BRF.

Maybe some royal houses think that if they sent representants to Madeleine's wedding, they have to also send someone to Carl Philip's wedding, and are cautious with it.

Has anything been heard from Luxembourg? I'd love to see Guillaume and Stéphanie attending. Being so newly married, it must be very emotional to attend another wedding.

You and me both. For once they can't complain that they are sending the Queen's youngest son to the wedding of a King's youngest child.

Claes Jernaeus, the Head of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs Press Centre, told to finnish Iltalehti, that about 340 representants of the media have applied for accreditation for the wedding, 58 per cent of these are from abroad. The foreign photo agencies are well represented - most of them come from Spain, France, Germany, Britain and USA.
At Victoria's and Daniel's wedding there was about 2000 accredited representants of the media.
Jernaeus isn't surprised that there is so much less interest in the media than three years ago. He says that it reflects well that Victoria was the heir, and the first of the siblings to get married. It was very unique in every way. And this time the groom is much stranger to the Swedes than Daniel, whose way from small Ockelbo as the darling of the crownprincess was like a fairytale.

The first part of Expressen's specials due to the wedding, there will be three parts. The first part is "The party princess".
Madde & Chris - del 1 | Madde & Chris | Kungligt
The other part will be put online on Tuesday, it is "The escape to New York"
The third part will be put online on Friday, it is "The Love Story"

I don't think that, at least, the dutch royal house is that stupid
The Netherlands will not send representants because the new King and Queen will first have to present themselves officialy to the King and Queen of Sweden.

Princess Beatrix will attend, as always, the Bilderberg Conference at Watford (UK) from 6 till 9 June 2013
Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien have weekend appointments, made a long time ago already

I suppose they could have sent some of the van Vollenhovens, though the bride probably hardly knows them. It is a pity that -as far as we know- Belgium, The Netherlands and Spain won't attend, esp. since the Swedes are usually the ones who are the most faithful in sending high representations abroad.

Anyway, if the Dutch king and queen can't attend as they need to officially present themselves first, I hope that they wait with that until after CP and Sofia's probable wedding. It saves them from participating in such a charade.

What a pity! Madeleine attended the wedding of Laurent and Claire, so a attendence of them would be quite appropriate....

SVT's (Swedish Television, which broadcasts the wedding) wedding page
Prinsessbröllopet SVT.se

Madeleine will not take O'Neill as her last name. On her application to the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) made in middle May she decided not to add O'Neill to her name. When she leaves the chapel, she is still just Madeleine Thérèse Amelie Josephine.
- It is her decision, I have no comment on that, said Bertil Ternert.
But isn't it very uncommon in royal contexts?
- I don't know history, so I can not answer that, said Ternert.
According to royal expert Sten Hedman it is unusual, both Princess Birgitta and Margaretha took their spouses surnames when they married.
- Maybe it's a way to highlight the presence of Sweden. She wants to show that she is a swedish princess and I think she marks it in a rather cute way, Hedman said.

I don't think it's that strange that she doesn't take O'Neill. She will keep HRH title, hence no last name. The kings sisters who married commoners (or, at lest not princes) - Desire, Margareta and Christina - lost the HRH. Birgitta, who married a prince, kept the HRH title. She doesn't have her husbands last name, she's just HRH princess Birgitta, just like Madeleine will be. Of course, I don't know for sure, but I think that might be the reson behind it all.

Brigitta baca me a HSH upon marriage. So, theoretical her title changed a bit!

Ah yes, you're correct. In swedish we usually don't make a difference between princes/princesses with the HRH or HSH (or none of them). Hence my mistake. But I still don't think that Birgitta took her husbands last name.

And why would they be cautious about attending Carl Philip's wedding?

I believe that would be in regards to the woman he would be marrying at said wedding.

So their children will be simply name(s) + O'Neill, no titles?
