No. It was a friend of the composer who made him aware of this. It's an economical issue. He should get paid (STIM-pengar, in swedish) for his work.

I have never seen a more in love and warm couple, it was a perfect wedding.
I could not agree with you more. The most relaxed couple I've seen out of the whole royal bunch lately (with possibly the exception of Guillaume and Stephanie). May they have a long and happy union.

They have now admitted that it was wrong to not give Warren credit for the arrangement. I hope this means that he will get the economical compensation that he is entitled to.

I hope he gets his fair payment. And I love that they used the Sister Act 2 arrangement.

Thanks to the both of you. I was prepared for some negative posts considering how some view Sofia, but Good Grief!! Talk about over the top down right venom and....Sad.

I know and I love the expression on Queen Margarethe's face, not to mention the way she's leaning down to Sophie. The whole thing just screams Major Dish Session Going On, So Do NOT Interrupt Us Or Else!!! . One of my favourite pictures from Saturday. :)

And somewhere I saw a photo that looked she was sitting down on a gold chair, with Mary and possible Frederick talking to her.

As was pointed out by another poster, Queen Margarethe suffers from rather serious back issues that have really become noticeable the last few years. While I've been lucky not to be affected w/serious back issues over the years, I do have serious foot and knee problems and walking and standing, not easy at all at times. So Her Majesty has my sympathy for what she's having to deal w/in a very public manner. :(

Yes...Let's talk about that gorgeous sparkling Wedding Present from Their Majesties, shall we? . I think that was the big surprise of the Wedding IMO and what a gorgeous surprise it was too. It really is a very pretty design. Delicate, yet also substantial. A nice size that works w/her "place or status" (for lack of a better term) in the Family, as it's not too big or too small either. It also has a nice subtle splash of colour w/the Emeralds. It just really works. My only complaint, and it's the only one of how the new Princess looked that I have, is I wish she'd wore it more on an angle instead of flat like a crown. IMO it would have looked far better on an angle, but that really is a minor quibble and more how I think a Tiara should be worn than anything. :)

I loved how seeing Estelle coming down the aisle, Victoria needed her hanky. Such a special moment that was and she, as well as the other Bridal Party Members, looked lovely IMO. Speaking of little Swedish Princesses... . I think I 'm going to have to start calling Leonore by the female version of what we call Prince George : Wee Miss Wiggle Worm. My Goodness at one point I think she literally went from Daddy to Mamma to Uncle Daniel to Auntie Victoria to Granny w/in a five minute time fame...LOL!! She certainly is a very busy young lady and ITA that she did seem to settle the most w/Daniel. Not for long mind you, but it happened. :)

Thank you for that. It sounds a lot like an United Church of Canada Wedding Service.

If the tradition in Sweden is to be more liberal in the choice of music, then so be it. I have often played ''Hymn to Joy'' for the recessional so I was interested to see the clip of it. when the soloist sang the words ''melt the clouds of sin and sadness, drive the dark of doubt away'' I thought of the controversy around the couple, and hope all that is now past. May they have a long and happy life together.

Queen Margrethe seemed to be in pain, and I wish someone had escorted her into the church instead of her having to walk in alone. Both of her sons were there, after all. But it was sweet of Frederik to escort her down the steps. No doubt we'll see more of that as time goes on.

I also had that cross my mind when I heard that part and Amen to all you said I bolded up there. As for Queen Margarethe going into the Chapel by herself, it was dependant on Rank and Protocol from what I could see. A pity, as it was sadly obvious Her Majesty was having a tough time walking on Saturday and could have truly used that extra support. :(

I too loved those Roses. Not only did they look beyond gorgeous, but that Creamy Yellow through to Coral just looked amazing paired w/the Grey Marble of the Chapel. Easily my favourite colour scheme out of the three Swedish Royal Weddings of the last five years.

And I think I've covered everything...I think that is. One last thing....I really hope this not the last time we see the Connaught Tiara on Victoria, as it really suits her and it looked stunning on her as well. :)

I really enjoyed this Wedding and the emotion and love truly was oozing out from my iPad.

Congratulations to Prince Carl Phillip and Princess Sofia!! Wishing a long and happy life to them!!

I thought it might interest some of you to see how the wedding is covered outside Sweden.

The BB coverage this week is, to put it mildly, massive!

But see for yourselves: https://app.box.com/s/wan1c8nm7bvef031n6j8vne2tpzmg5xj
As always the files are large, so you may allow up to a couple of seconds to load.
(You do of course realize that it's easier and faster to download the entire folder, rather file after file ).

DRF trivia based on the articles:

QMII: Wore a dress by Birgitte Thaulow.
QMII's legs and back seems to have troubled her. She was seen sitting down on the terrace while waiting for the newly weds to return, rather than standing like most of the guests.
She was also seen leaning hard on the bannister.

Mary: Wore a dress by Birgit Hallstein and wrist-band-pearl-thingies from Marianne Dulong. Her hair was done by Søren Hedegaard.

Frederik: Wore the mess uniform of the navy.
Daniel and Frederik seems to have a close relationship. because Daniel was seen caressing Frederik's cheek. - Perhaps in sympathy with Frederik's legs. He went for a bicycle in Sweden a few hours before the wedding. some 250 km, to be exact.

Joachim: Wore the mess uniform of the army.

Our Marie: Wore a dress by Alberta Ferretti and shoes by Jimmy Choo. Her hair was done by Dennis Knudsen.

I like this Pairing. Carl Philip (does anybody knwo, where the name "Philip" comes from? ) and Sofia.

I watched the wedding ceremony on tv, but not the wedding dinner.

Thank you, LadyFinn!
I especially like the tiara of Marianne von der Esch. It seems to have a lovely wreath desing. Does some know what her connection with the court is? Does she have a function at court, or is she a friend? And what kind of medal is she wearing?

Marianne von der Esch is the widow of Hans Ulrik von der Esch. Marianne and Hans Ulrik have always been close friends of the royal family, queen Silvia, Victoria, Carl Philip and princess Christina attended at Hans Ulrik's funeral in 2009. Their son Fredrik von der Esch is queen Silvia's godson.

Here is another photo of Marianne and her tiara at the wedding.
http://imageupper.com/i/?S0200010100...36270474942880

The medal could be this, awarded to those who have been in the Swedish state's service for 30 years and have shown "zeal and probity".

Both Marianne née Celsing and her late husband Hans Ulrik von der Esch have been close to the royal couple for a long time. For example is the Queen godmother to their son. Hans Ulrik is the son of a ambassador and his brother Björn was Lord Chamberlain between 1975-1980.
The medal looks like one of the commemoration medals handed out to guests and high-ranking members of staff at royal anniversaries.

Not sure it's obsession, so much as "Oh NO!! Not AGAIN!?!" I've lost count now how many times Queen Sonja's worn that thing at Weddings, State Dinners, Major Important Events for Fellow Royals outside of Norway....etc over the years.

Her very colorful private life prior to her marriage would make many of today's young actresses seem very tame. And none of it was a secret during those years. Some of her affairs with married men caused quite a scandal.

Her image of the perfect angel is fiction. Her real life is much more interesting.
