Looks very like it. How very lovely that Victoria and Madeleine should do that.

I think they all chose their hats together. Sophia looks fine her hair doesn't seem to hold curls. The couple looks very happy and probably ready for the wedding to be over.

I think these are three different couples I see no need to compare how they handled their banns. I seriously doubt that Victoria or Maddie care how they went in to the church they are just happy to be there and share their brothers special moment with his soon to be wife.

But Sweden, like other monarchies, has a heir to the throne, and her and her title and position should be respected in these events. Of course there is a new director at the press department and she favours openness. But they should not run over the heir to the throne. She comes first, and the events of the others should be simplier, also when it comes to how it is showed to the media.

Significantly, unlike Daniel for example, she didn't become "HRH Princess Sofia of Sweden". I assume "princess" in her case is just a courtesy title.

Why did they arrive from and how was that different from CP's sisters' banns ? Could you please explain ?

There is a door beside the altar at the Royal Chapel, so called "Royal Family door". At Victoria's and Madeleine's banns the royal family, also Victoria and Madeleine, arrived from there and not outside the chapel by the stairs. The photographers weren't allowed to take photos of the royal family at the benches at the chapel like this time.

i like sofia's outfit: apart from the hideous hat, she looked radiant, i'm sure she won't disappoint at the wedding.
leonore is sweet, but estelle is my favourite, she always looks so enthusiastic! you have to fall in love with her little head peaking out trying to see what was going on in this picture:

i'm not sure what the ladies, overall, thought of when buying hats - what exactly was it that victoria and madde were wearing?!

Prince Carl Philip once was Sweden's Crown Prince and, despite having lost that position, he still represents a new generation in the Royal House of Bernadotte, via the direct male lineage of all the Kings and Princes before him. Seen from the more conservative view, after Victoria the House of Bernadotte will have lost the throne of Sweden as Estelle is in fact a Westling.

Of course we are now in 2015 and maybe we have a different view on that, but in terms of royal descent, genealogy and heraldry Carl Philip is the procreator of the Bernadotte dynasty. I can imagine that especially King Carl XVI Gustaf (whom was never happy with the retro-active "robbing" of his son's royal birthright and position as Heir) wants to stress that this is a dynastically very important marriage for him.

Or it was never intended that he would stay away but the media went loose with all the speculating.

Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine wore no hats but fascinators. Not my cup of tea, especially not with long hair (Madeleine). But all looked nice for this little ceremony, an in-between on the way to the wedding day.

According to Aftonbladet, Estelle was on a great mood and was laughing to the photographers. Leonore was a little restless first but calmed down.

I believe Daniel legally changed his name to "Westling-Bernadotte" so that Estelle could remain a Bernadotte (like the Mountbatten-Windsors in the UK, I guess).

True, but at least it's now official that she will be a princess and a H.R.H. in that case. For Daniel it was a little different so to me it doesn't differ all that much.

I will say again I doubt Victoria cares as long as her brother is happy. Victoria will be Queen and that trumps her brother by a long shot. So they did something different I think it's their moment let them enjoy it the family obviously had no problem with the change.

No one of us knows what Victoria thinks. Of course she is happy for her brother, because he seems happy now. And otherwise Victoria does like the king wants. The king is the head of the family and Victoria respects that. It would be good if the king also would respect his daughter and heir to the throne and show his support in his acts.

According to Svensk Damtidning, the chapel wasn't full.

The press reports that although Carl Philip and Sofia asked instead of presents to donate to their Foundation, the guests had a lot of presents. Countess Marianne Bernadotte had a bag from Georg Jensen with a present.

I miss princess Christina.

Beautiful pictures, and it's good to hear Sofia will become a Princess and Duchess.

Johan T Lindwall tells in Expressen that Estelle followed the ceremony intently, as you can see in the pictures inside the church.
- Estelle is Estelle. She is accustomed to these events and did not seem to think it was something strange.
Her younger cousin Princess Leonore did not show the same curiosity - and instead took the solemn moment of opportunity to rest a little.
- Leonore was tired so when Chris O'Neill passed my seat on row 21, she slept safely in daddy's arms. He carried her out of the church, says Johan T Lindwall.

I don't think the King will ever "go over" Carl Philip being stripped of his Crown Prince status and will anything to for him. JMHO
