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.

I think that's overblown. Victoria is the heir and the future, and she's immensely popular. I think the monarchy is totally secure.

The family seems to like Sofia, and she's done good work with Project Playground. I imagine she'll do very well as Princess Sofia.

Prince Carl Philip proposed to Sofia this morning she said that "she was very shocked but happy."

Everything was very fast it seems

And Princess Sofia of Sweden, Duchess of Varmland has such a nice ring to it!

I bet this is a fun wedding to watch. Hope Sofia wears the Connaught, or maybe one of the fringes.

While I also think that the planning for this press conference was horrible, I do not think it's CP*s and Sofia's fault in any way. And as for the difference of how the engagements within the royal family have been handled, I think the answer is pretty easy.

Princess Madeleine has never wanted to be in the limelight (a biography of her recounts how she broke down in tears when she had to do her first representation event of her own) and after having gone through one engagement before, I understand why she and Chris would record a video that was sent out to the media. Also, Chris seem to be a very private person (remember the pictures where he gave the finger to the paparazzis?) and wouldn't have been comfortable doing a press conference a that time.

Victoria and Daniel got engaged in February, and to do a press conference outside would've been madness. Also, Victoria has always been very keen on following tradition and since her parents announced their engagement by inviting to a press conference where they sat in a sofa, why shouldn't she?

As for Carl-Philip and Sofia, granted that the weather wasn't great in Stockholm today, but why not do the press conference outside if it's summer? And Sofia would've gotten as much questions even if they had had a more organized press conference in-doors, so I don't really understand all the comments about her always wanting to be in the spotlight.

Congratulation to the couple. I think that during past years Sofia made all her best to deserve her place in the royal family.

Some of the press wanted to do a separate interview with the queen and king, I guess that's why they stayed.

The king should treat his children equally at one of the most important events in their lives. It is sad to see that he can't do it.

I don't think this marriage endangers the future of the Swedish Royal family and the monarchy.
Carl Philip is not the heir and his bride deserves a chance.
I hope the Swedes will respect the choice of the Prince.

He might be one for the Princess Anne (uk) school-of-thought "it has nothing to do with me"
