I have never agreed with and don't plan to relax my stance about young girls / teens taking photos or walking in runway shows where they are nude and/or promoting sexuality. I wonder why the designers, photographers, editors, etc. can't find older models for this kind of work. Having said that I know that there are respectable people who have much more liberal views than I have and I suspect Sofia and her parents fit in that category.

I remember a few years ago there was an editorial featuring Swedish model Frida Gustavsson where her breast is visible, some found it inappropriate because of her young age while others thought it was OK and chided the critics for being prudes. Another well known Swedish model, Elsa Hosk has pictures of the same type when she was in her mid-teens, and bear in mind that the pictures Sofia took in Thailand are sexual/sexy but still PG-13.

Again, the photos are not to my taste and values, and Sofia's parents and the photographer have been criticized for their part and I get that, but I am much more bothered by how other models are treated, even those that are in the more respectable high fashion segment, oftentimes those models are shipped off alone to foreign countries to fend for themselves.

Thanks for that information. I just can't imagine that if something illegal had happened that it would not just have been reported, but it would have been a scandal.

When did Sofia deny doing the pictures? I don't recall her addressing it one way or another but she has made a vague comment about her past along the lines that if given the chance would have made different choices but overall she has no regrets. Also what words were used, because I see absurd and incorrect terms used like porn, soft-core porn, stripper, etc.?

@Queen Claude I recall reading that Princess Sofia when asked about her past in a pre-wedding interview said she was not ashamed of the things she had done because your past experiences are what build your character but given the option now she would probably make a different choice.
NOW before everyone goes into attack mode I am writing the above in my own words and not quoting the Princess directly.
The pre wedding interview is on you tube and was,done by STV I think.
Perhaps one of our Swedish contributors could tells us what the exact words were. I have tried to find the interview in English but no luck.

Especially given she's pregnant. Who knows how she was feeling that day. Things happen.

The official story from the CIO was Sofia missed the banquet for a PP anniversary. Illness was never cited and would be have been understood.

I must have missed this, who exactly doesn't "understand" the actual reason why she could attend the state banquet?

That's not true and I think you know that There are constantly stories in the tabloids about e.g. Mary and Frederik or William and Catherine – are they not "bringing anything new to the table" either? Quite on the contrary, I think it's safe to establish by now that Sofia is very well-liked, passionate about her work and even more so, good at her work.

It's honestly hilarious to me that people are so adamant to see Sofia fail that when she then turns out to be popular and good at her job, they go to such great lengths to bring her down. I mean... wow.
