If they have the wedding next summer, why they had to get engaged on Chris' birthday?

Well congrats. They are obviously in love and happy with each other
and all the speculations are finally over. Though I would bet the Swedish magazines are now eager to print pics of Sofia's past next to the engagement pics.

I'm so happy for them! And they look so incredibly happy and they're absolutely radiant! Best of luck to them and their marriage! :)

Well it's very inconsiderate given that it's Chris's big birthday......the international media will make this news very interesting most probably

Oh this is exciting! I knew they'd get around to it one of these days.

She's going to be a gorgeous bride

^Well, from what I've seen of Chris, I'm pretty sure he'd much rather celebrate his birthday in private and not have media discussing it, so I think he'll welcome the engagement happening on his birthday.

Chris is a private person who chose not to take a title. I imagine he couldn't care less that the engagement was announced on his birthday.

I can't believe my eyes, the king and queen come to the group photo with them. Why? They made the awkward video with Victoria and Daniel, and nothing with Madeleine and Chris.
And now the king and queen are talking and babbling with the press and praising Sofia? Why they are treating Carl Philip and Sofia so differently than Victoria and Daniel? Because the king wanted Carl Philip to be the heir...

That last sentence sums it all up!

Congrats to the couple. I look forward to the wedding. I really hope they don't get married in June as well. The Swedes need a new wedding month, June is over used!

I'm not puzzled by the engagement but about the exaggeration of the whole thing... and I guess it's because CP is the only son

It's kind of a nice family tradition though- marrying in June.

I'm extremely sad and worried about the future of the royal family. And I'm worried about the relationships inside the royal family.
And the court made extremely lousy work today. By keeping the press waiting and running through the Palace.
When Victoria and Daniel got engaged, the press was called to a press conference which started on time and no one had to wait.

But this is a very good example of Sofia using the media. She wanted a "free" event where she can speak as much as she will.

Congratulations to the Prince Carl Philip and Sofia. I wish them all the best!

It's ridiculous the way some people act towards them. Seriously, if you don't like them, stay away of the threads about them.

But they are a happy couple who don't give a damn about bitter people at TRF.

Maybe the King and Queen have a more forgiving nature about her past than many people on this board and maybe they just want their children to be happy with their partners. After all being a good parent (and leader) means being supportive, understanding and loving.

As for the couple going out to the courtyard to wave...it would have been kind of rude not to since there were people gathered there. Imagine the backlash if they hadn't. This couple is damned if they do and damned if they don't for a lot of people.

I'm of the opinion of give her a chance to be happy and support her husband and the crown. If she fails, then people can beat her up like a piñata.
