Prince Carl Philip of Sweden and Sofia Hellqvist: June 13, 2015

But the huge majority of the Swedes are very happy today that Victoria is nr 1 and not Carl-Philip.

Carl-Philip has (ofcourse) not said anything at all about that matter.

Amen, Princess Carmen! And for those who won't accept Sofia, that's just their little red wagon. My daddy always told me "Not everyone is going to love you" and that's just a cold hard fact of life. So if they don't like her, whatever. Whether they accept her nor not is irrelevant. She married a prince who adores her and I think they're just plain jealous!!

Well yes because it's what they know...she's been raised to be the heir after the title was taken from Carl Phillip. If it had been him they would be happy he was the heir.

But like I said...he may be happy he is NOT the heir. Much more freedom.

I think they had the wedding they wanted and deserved. It was certainly beautiful enough to have the bride, the groom, Victoria, Daniel, Madeleine, Queens Mathilde and Maxima, Fred, Mary and Mette Marit (and that's just what I saw) all feeling the love with tears, so they must have done a whole lot right, music niggles or not.

How sweet of QS to carry Sofia's bouquet so she can walk up the stairs holding CP's hand.

That's not certain. A lot is is also depending on Victorias and Carl-Philips personalites and many people doesn't like his shy and reserved personality. This is really the WRONG day to say something negative but the thruth is that most Swedes sees him as just shy and lazy. Don't know if that can be "trained away".

He would of been raised differently if he was the heir. Naturally things would of been different with him, from how he is now. His laziness (or perceived laziness) may be because he has had nothing he's really ambitious about.

Nothing wrong with shy...but perhaps that would of been overcome had he been raised as the heir.

To be fair, Queen Maxima is known to shed tears a lot, so I guess she doesn't really count as evidence !

I think the emotion was real and honest. The tiara is apparently a gift from the King and Queen I read this on another forum.

I have lots of things to say about the Swedish royal courts PR-department, but the court sure knows how to pull off a great wedding.

When it comes to the music in the church, it wasn't what I would pick, but nothing strange about it. The big exception: Joyful, joyful at the end! How great was that? Simply an amazing way to walk out of the church :)

Well, in the first place, that title belonged to Victoria first, but because of Male-preference law, when Carl-Philip was born, he took that title from his sister. At 7 months, at the will of the people, the title returned to Victoria, since it was established primogeniture law.

About the look of the Bride, she was beautiful indeed. I like her dress BUT where are those times of Maxima, MM, Letizia, Mathilde, Mary, where we would see a bridal gown that looks diferent? Nowadays, evey bride just uses lace and the same type of dresses. To me is boring, of course, it's their choice, but I miss something diferent than the "boring" trend of bridal gown that everyone seems to like.

I really enjoyed this wedding. It was full of joy and full of love.

I was surprised at how short it was compared to our Irish Roman Catholic ceremonies. Approximately 40 minutes in length from the time Sofia entered the church to the time she and Carl Philip departed as man and wife.

I thought that Sofia looked very beautiful. Her dress was gorgeous and I love how she wore her hair. She looked very regal.
