That's a relief!! Now I'll be able to watch it LIVE when the Royals arrive. Here was me thinking that it would probably start at 12pm or something, and that's when I'm at work... Now we have confirmation that it begins at 4pm. Plenty of time for me to get home, lol! LOVE that it's a white tie and tiara dress code.

The court will not inform about the private party the day before the wedding and Princess Madeleine has made it clear that this is a party for friends, family and relatives.
And tabloid Expressen did their best to make a problem of the private party! However I suppose that as long as the Swedish RF pay their own way, they are entitled to a celebration without intruding cameras! When it comes to Swedish RF media relations maybe the extensive covering of Victorias wedding was the exception rather than the rule, or what??

Now it is official:
Swedish public service broadcaster Sveriges television has been named the official host broadcaster at the wedding between Princess Madeleine and Mr. Christopher O'Neill. The wedding will take place at 4 p.m. CET in the Royal Chapel at the Royal Palace.

Maybe it is mr O'Neill who is paying for Grand Hotel. It would be a little strange that the royal family would pay 8600 euros as a rent of the Grand Hotel since they could have the party at some royal castle for free. The private party for Victoria and Daniel was on Thursday before the wedding at the Drottningholm Palace.
I think that it is also easier for the press to talk about a luxurious party when it is organized at the Grand Hotel and not at a royal Palace.

According to Svensk Damtidning, Madeleine is so tired of the flight trips between NY and Sweden, that she can't work right now, she is concentrating to her wedding and gathering strength after the tiring trips.

Svensk Damtidning writes about the wedding in this week's issue:

Since Chris has a large family and then there are the Bernadottes and Sommerlaths and Madeleine wants to invite as many friends as she can, they have had to limit the invited people.
Not invited:
- king's friend Bertil Nordström (was invited to V and D wedding), Herman Lindqvst, Michael Bernadotte af Wisborg, Oscar Bernadotte, Stephanie af Klercker
There will be a cortege
- according to Svensk Damtidning, there will be a cortege, they just don't know how long it will be. Perhaps Madeleine does like princess Christina, a cortege to Riddarholmen and from there with Gustafsberg VII to Drottningholm.
- according to Svensk Damtidning, Madeleine has studied the weddings of her aunts very carefully.
- 50 white Volvo cars have been rented to transport the guests (at V and D wedding there were 85 Volvos)

Madeleine told at an interview: "Chris will have a best man by his side, but I won't have bridesmaids. Just like my mum and my sister, I'll have bridal attendants — that's a wedding tradition that I want to continue."

I wonder who her child attendants will be? Some of her cousins kids I guess.

Perhaps also nephews and nieces from Chris O'Neills side!

Of course! In that case quite a few attendants!

Title
The court will announce close to the wedding whether Chris gets a royal title after the wedding. Theoretically, Chris could become a prince or a duke. To get the title you have to be a Swedish citizen. But anyone who is a foreign citizen can bestow Swedish citizenship and thus become duke or prince of Sweden, says the king's solicitor Axel Calissendorff.

Work
Currently, Chris is a co-owner at Noster Capital management company. Very little is known about the company's affairs.
- It is not unlikely that Chris now earned money on the crisis that the banks are undergoing. In the future it is difficult for Chris to combine their transactions and his new role in the royal family. says Emanuel Sidea, journalist for Veckans Affärer -magazine.
- I believe that Chris leaves the company within one year of the wedding. Pressure on it grows as he becomes a part of the royal family, Sidea says.
Nu säger de ja – till förändring Nyheter Aftonbladet

Stefano Catenacci and Operakällaren will be responsible for wedding dinner June 8 at Drottningholm Palace.

Hm, very interesting.
But I may come to the conclusion, that Aftonbladet has a tooo swedish centric view .
I exactly assume the contrary: that Madeleine will stay in NY with supporting Childhood, and Chris will stay in his job. They will fly over to Sweden occasionally for big events, such as Nobel.
Speculations, speculations.... let´s wait and see

Chris' sisters from his fathers side are over 50 years old, maybe their children are too old? Jasper d'Abo, son of Chris' sister Tatjana is 12 years old and according to the press Chris' sister Natascha could have a daughter at a suitable age.

Ebba Kleberg von Sydow will host SVT's wedding live coverage. She has experts Roger Lundgren and John Chrispinsson with her at the studio near the Royal Palace. Other guests will also be commenting about the guests, wedding and other things.
The program starts a little before the wedding and will continue until the evening with a summary at 20.00 swedish time.
The wedding dinner will not be send on TV.

As many of the guests are staying at Grand Hotel it's understandable (as well as eco-friendly) to have the dinner party there, instead of having to rent cars to haul guests from the Grand Hotel to some castle.

According to Svensk Damtidning, the court has already rented 50 Volvos to transport the guests during the wedding, to Victoria's and Daniel's wedding they rented 85 Volvos.
It would have been a good opportunity to show the beautiful castles and swedish history to the foreign guests, instead of a five-star-hotel.

But each time the cars are used they will add to the exhaust gases in Stockholm, unless they are using electric cars. Even if the cars are rented for a longer period, each time they are used when it's not really necessary, their use will add to the ecological footprints in Sweden, and the king is chairman for the Swedish WWF and to reduce the ecological footprints are one of main issues for the Swedish WWF. If they want to show the castles and Swedish history for the guests it's more eco-friendly to hire one or two buses for the transport instead of using 50 cars.

Well, I don't think a member of any royal family would be happy traveling in a bus to attend a wedding!

So I don't get it, royals will only attend the wedding in the chapel, and the dinner will be the day before it in the hotel only for friends and relatives?

No.The party the day before is in the Grand Hotel in Stockholm. The wedding reception will be in Drottningholm Castle.
