Same! I will have to watch all of it in clips or online at BBC or somewhere else as I can't get it in the states on normal TV. ;(

Obviously the royal family has discussed about the news in yesterday's Expressen and Svensk Damtidning, since Madeleine told to Expressen, that of course the swedish people can enjoy of a part of the wedding. Madeleine said that they are discussing now about it within the family. It isn't just up to her, it is the king who makes the final decision after talking with Madeleine and Chris. When the reporter asked what Madeleine would want, she was quiet for some seconds and said "You have to understand, I do not want you to do a great article about this". Madeleine said that she has had it clear that the swedish people can take part at their wedding. But she doesn't know how much it will be, if it is just at the church or the whole evening. But a certain part will be broadcasted on TV. The reporter said that does Madeleine understand that people want to see the actual ceremony in the church? Madeleine said: Absolutely, I think we haven't thought of anything other than that the Swedish people to take part of it. Madeleine said that they are talking about what TV channels will be included, there is so much to think about, and it's not just up to her.

Royal Musings: Will Princess Madeleine's wedding be private?

I wouldn't be at all surprised if the wedding was small and private with very little television coverage.

Why would the king not escort his daughter down the aisle? This makes no sense to me!

Because it's not a Swedish wedding tradition that the father of the bride walks his daughter to the altar, the tradition here is that bride and groom walk together up to the altar. There was a lot of criticism here in Sweden when Victoria wanted her father to walk her up to the altar, both from priests and the public, as it was seen as dated and giving the impression that the father hands his daughter to the husband as a piece of property, something that has no place in a society where equality between man and women is important. I do hope Madeleine doesn't choose to have her father walk her to the altar, if that's what she wants she could as well get married in the U.S. and follow American traditions, instead of trying to impose them into a Swedish wedding tradition.

With this explanation that you just gave, I hope that she does not as well.

Thank you for explaining! I don't know what customs are in Sweden, and this now gives me a more clear view.

According to Svensk Damtidning Madeleine has chosen major general Håkan Pettersson to the official wedding coordinator. Pettersson was the official wedding coordinator at Victoria's and Daniel's wedding, and everyone, including Victoria and Daniel, were very satisfied with his work.

Madeleine wants to do like queen Silvia and Crown princess Victoria, she will have page boys and girls but no bridesmaids. The wedding is an afternoon wedding followed by a dinner, which will be held on Drottningholm Palace.

I think that the wedding will be broadcasted via TV and after reading the interview my pleasure about the wedding has increased.

As the wedding will be an afternoon wedding with dinner afterwards it would mean that it's going to be a tiara event.

It's possible that the transport out to Drottningholm will be made by boat the same way as after the wedding of princess Christina and Tord Magnusson.

so the guestlist is done, why wait until April 1st to send them?

does Madeleine have godchildren? if yes, some of them might be the flower girls, since she said she will have children like her mother and sister had.

About the guestlist, Madeleine used the word "nog" which has a bit of uncertainty in it, so I would guess the guest list is more or less done, but there are still a few decisions to make.

As far as I know Madeleine (and Carl Philip) are only godparents to the one each of the twin girls born in 2008 to their cousin Patrik Sommerlath. Even if Madeleine doesn't have any more godchildren there are a number of children in different ages among her cousins to choose from, and probably also among Chris' side too.

Chris' half sister from his mother's first marriage, Tatjana has three children: Anoushka Maria Violet, born 1991, Celina Maria Isabel, born 1996 and Jasper Henry Erland, born 2001.
The other half sister from his mother's second marriage, Natascha has daughter Milana, born 1996 and according to Svensk Damtidning also a son, whose name I didn't find, he is younger than Milana.
I don't know about the children of his half sisters from his father's side.

I´m so happy that it´s been confirmed that it will be an afternoon wedding (= tiaras ), and dinner at Drottningholm sounds perfect - it´s such a beautiful palace and surroundings, I hope they take the boat out to the palace beacuse that´s a very beautful ride. Now my dream would be if Madeleine would allow camreras inside the reception like Victoria did - but I don´t think she will. And let´s hope the Swedes (and the guests) dig deep into the jewellry waults
