Royals: So lieben und leben die Königshäuser | BUNTE.de

The Royal Bride To Be ... came across as a warm, smiling, happy girl, with her Prince beside her.

I know very little about Sofia, ...... as they say the past is another country, and we are all strangers there. In other words, their lives (Sofia and Carl Philip) started the day they met. Best foot forward, no looking back.

She makes him happy, they are a lovely couple. I like her, and hope she has good friends that will support her, with the many Royal duties she will be undertaking. As I mentioned before, she has the potential to be a real style Icon! Not to outshine Victoria, but to be part of a good team of sisters-in-law representing Sweden. I'm sure a glamorous stylish Sofia is yet to come.

Whether she is close to the two Royal sisters, we don't know, but she has the support of her future husband, where they will make a life for themselves and their children. The hurtful gossip can only make them stronger as a couple, which I'm sure it already has.

I'm sure we will get a Wedding Date soon; which will be very exciting; especially for all their friends and family!!

I think we're reading in far too much in the interview and making things up that aren't there. When Carl-Philip and Sofia says that something clicked the first time they met eachother doesn't necessarily have to mean that they fell head over heels in love at that time, it might mean just that, that something clicked between them and they had a really good time together. I'm sure everyone in here has met someone for the first time and felt an instant connection to that person, but it doesn't have to be in a romantic way. The fact that Carl-Philip was in a relationship with Emma Pernald and stayed with her for another year after meeting Sofia seems to point to that. (That also indicates to me that Sofia didn't set her sights on Carl-Philip and tried to become his girlfriend at that point, because if she had there would've been people spreading that information since)

The way I read the article (and I read the full interview in DT) they met and felt a connection, but since Carl-Philip was in a relationship with Emma (and I believe Sofia was also in a relationship at the time?) that was it. Later when Carl-Philip had broken up with Emma he came in contact with Sofia again and then the so-called "click" turned romantic.

Good comment! And we all don't know how the relationship with Emma in the later stages was! It could be that it was already on the rocks.

Amen! I wanted to post something along similar lines earlier, but then the forum was offline.

Exactly. Some posters say he should have stuck with Emma because according to them she had the proper profile, but perhaps personality-wise she was not the most proper person for him in the long run.
Sometimes one can be with someone for years without "serious" results and sometimes one only has to be with someone for a shorter time to know and feel that it's right.

Whether people like it or not Sofia is here to stay and she is going nowhere, we will just have to get used to it.

I think if the government had said no, Prince Carl Phillip would have married her anyway even if that meant giving up his title. Perhaps he made that clear before the government made a decision.

If Carl-Gustav can sit on the throne, I think Sofia can marry CP.

Normally I wouldn't care about such a union, but I do wish them the best in their life together and I must say that the ring is gorgeous!
I'm honest, though. It leaves a bitter taste, when I think of all the royal members of the past who could not marry their loved ones. And also Daniel & Victoria, who had to wait for more than 10 years to be granted a permission. It's just unfair!

Wow, some of the comments on here are just vicious.
I really feel terrible for the entire royal family to have such comments directed at a family member and someone who is about to become a family member. I wonder, would people be so harsh if they were face to face with Carl-Philip and Sofia? I rather doubt it.
I congratulate the couple and wish them a long and happy life together.

There is little equity in life. Queen Sonja had to wait nine years to marry Harald. But, also, CP is not the heir to anything important, so it would be easier for him than Harald or Victoria. Yes, there is always hypocrisy. And, you are right plenty has taken place.

I'm not sure the people of Sweden are looking at this engagement has a bad thing as some are on here.

All those opposed to the engagement would be fawning all over them if a face-to-face meeting took place. Then they would brag to all their friends that they had met them and then come back on this forum and rip them to shreds!

I think Dman means that the Swedish people don't frown upon this engagement like some posters on this forum do.

I am "afraid" that you are very right in this. Hypocrisy galore would be the case.

Yes, that's what I meant. I think some of the Swedish people may think it's great that Prince Carl Philip has found some happiness with Sofia and there will be another royal wedding to look forward to now.
