RE: replies to P.Madeleine's FB-message
From what i see on other forums, i get the feeling that people are actually trying to shame the SRF into calling of the engagement and not mingling with Sofia anymore.
Everyone is entitled to their opinions, as long as they realize they are nothing less or more than that: personal opinions...

(oh, and please have the decency, even though you don't like people, to use the right names: it's not Prince Carl and King Carl...)

I doubt that anybody has the illusion that 'shaming' will break of the engagement. But it is obvious that many have strong feelings about the matter. Even Madeleine's facebook has a high number of critical remakrs, that were not deleted by the press department of the palace yet (maybe they were off in the weekend, or maybe they will leave them around).

I agree with other posters that over interpreting gestures, looks etc. based on a few minutes of video footage or pictures can be counter productive and may lead to a parallel universe in which this issue is debated. All we know for now is that the king, queen and princess madeleine publicly wished the couple well. Silvia with her arms closed or an apparently short message by Pss Madeleine do not alter that, and they may not mean anything at all.

Yes, I'm very harsh on her and i dislike her very much but one thing is writinng negative comments on Madde's facebook page, another one is pasting links of Sofia's nude pictures....

Oh dear, the media is going to start having a field day in regards to this engagement. Could it be as bad as when the king and that book came out about his partying when he was married? I feel so sorry for Victoria, Madeline and their mother. It's going to be a very long year and I don't feel sorry for them. They brought this on themselves.

Good luck to them. I wish them well. Her past isn't ideal but if they love one another they deserve a chance at happiness.

That said, I would really, really love to know how the engagement has been received by the Royal Family.

I don't care about press statements. Oh, to be a fly on the wall. !!!

It has nothing to do with adjustments to anything. Engagements simply last a longer time than is the use in the anglosaxon world, while not so long ago around a year was a standard engagement length over there.

Prince Carl Philip will wait a year before marrying, Princess Victoria waited one year and 4 months, Princess Madeleine waited 9 months during her second engagement, her first engagement led to a break-up as we know.

I think now the Royal Engagement has happened, it would be really nice if Victoria could treat Sofia as another sister, and show the royal bride to be, what will be expected of her. I think that would make all the difference to Sofia.

Sofia will need a really good couture, and who knows, with the right fashion and accessories, she could become another Jackie Kennedy. I think her hair would look great in an up-do!

Well, having been a fan of Sofia from the get-go, I'm pretty happy that the engagement has occurred. The ring is pretty, but nothing to write home about, she looks lovely and happy and C-P looks like the cat that swallowed the canary. Best wishes to her and congratulations to him.

As for her past...pffft. It means nothing. What I'm interested in is what she can become and she just might surprise all you naysayers.

Rock on, kids!

I really wish this couple all the best. They'll need to stand strong. It's unfortunate that She courted the press so early in the relationship because the "media" has no loyalty.

I think it's possible for her to endear herself to the public but she'll need EXCELLENT pr for that and I'm not convinced the Swedish court is that skilled. However she seems sweet and cp loves her so I hope it works.

You don't have to like what I wrote as the same goes for me and for everyone here, we are all entitled to our own opinions whether we like someone else's opinion or not.
Exactly right! :)

He's going to marry her, with or without people's good wishes.

I understand titles for her will be discussed in the Autumn, after a wedding date has been set.

He want's her and nobody else, so be it!

She now has a clean slate, as of 27 June 2014. A blank sheet of paper to start afresh.

I don't believe we will ever know what the Family really think? Unless they come out publicly, via a third party?? But in any case, time to leave the past behind, and welcome her as one of the family.

Svensk Damtidning claims in it's paper issue, that Carl Philiip had planned the proposal for a long time. And that he proposed at his house in Ökenäs, Trosa.

Svensk Damtidning also tells that Carl Philip and Sofia met for the first time already in the summer 2007 at a nightclub V. They were having a small talk. Carl Philip was with Emma and Sofia lived in New York with a man who had a little son. But to his friends Carl Philip told that he was incredibly fascinated by Sofia.
