Exactly what I thought when I saw the pictures. Chris' mother is dressed far too young for her age, the skirt is too short, the hat dead ugly.

I am quite disappointed by the event, I didn't like Madde's look, I like Chris being independent but it doesnt suit royalty.

Somehow the allover-impression for me was one of dysfunctionality. People are having to pull through this event and want to get over with it.

Sofia present - she always comes across to me as desperate, no matter how hard she tries, she'll never fit in. Completely ridiculous with her strange look-at-me smile but I am sure the Swedish Kings knwo what they are doing

It is summer though- it was in season. I actually liked Sofia's look more than anyone else except Victoria.

I think that this should be a private event...until now it was all very disfunctional and it doesn't seam a royal event at all...Princess Madeleine was not living in Stockholm anymore, she is more like an American citizen...I think that they should be having an American private wedding in United States, that was a lot more suitable for her way of living now... she wants a royal wedding but within a few weeks she will be lining her upper Est side story in new York like a normal high class women...

On the other hand, princess Madeleine should have been heavily critizied here in Sweden if they had chosen to get married privately in the US.

I think that Madeleine and Chris will keep a low profile after the wedding, and not take part so much in the work of the royal house in Sweden. They'll probably come over here for big events like the Nobel Prize awards, but not much more. You can compare her role to the current king's sisters. You don't see them much in public (with the exception of Birgitta, who turns up now and then).

Princess Madeleine is a Swedish princess and this wedding is royal no matter what you think. As a Swede I have no problem with her living in the US and that certainly does not make her an American. There are enough royals to handle the royal duties in Sweden and Madeleine's involvement with World Childhood is fare more important than any ribbon cutting she could do in Sweden.

Well okay then. If the taxpayer was paying for the wedding, I would have thought it would have been rather nice of Maddie and Chris to stick around and show they're worth it. If Daddy's footing the bill they can go live they're glamorous life in the states and come back whenever or never.

Sofia takes care of Patrick Sommerlath's twins, they are Carl Philip's and Madeleine's godchildren.

I wonder if the twins will be in the wedding. Victoria has her godchildren, and I don't recall hearing Maddie had any other godchildren.

The woman behind Sofia is holding the girls' hands in the pic. Is there another pic of Sofia with the girls

Too bad Emma's son is not a bit older. Love to see CP and Sofia's face, if he had been a little page boy

The woman holding the girls hands is their mother, Maline. She's Patrick Sommerlaths wife. He also has an older son with his ex-girlfriend (Camilla Lundén, a swedish model/actress). He's the one walking next to Sofia in the picture. I haven't seen one with just the girls and Sofia.

I think that Madeleine is the godmother to her friend Charlotte Kreugers son, but I'm not sure about that.
