I think behind closed doors this family is a mess.

The balcony scene sums it up for me, so tasteless

I congratulate och wish all the happiness in teh world to the new royal couple, and if I shall try to forsee the future myself, I think the new princess will make you all eat your words.

Me too! (despite my lack of adoration for Sofia) I can't imagine that she will skip the Nobels like Madeleine. Though she is unlikely to wear a tiara this year already.

And the wedding will be a great sparkling white tie event, with loads of foreign Royals as well. I will certainly enjoy the tiara watch excessively.

Well, congratulations to the couple. I can't say I'm thrilled, but I'm willing to give Sofia a chance.

That balcony photo seems a little over the top for an engagement. I also think the press conference was disorganized and seemed a bit unprofessional. It's too bad the Palace didn't have more time to get organized.

Have Victoria or Madeleine commented yet?

Short of a freak accident killing everyone ahead of him there's no way he's going to be the king of Sweden. Even if he were next in line he should be able to marry whoever he wants anyway.

It's rather ironic to me that a country that is so proud of their tolerance of every sort of thing, is being so priggish about him marrying a woman with a racy past.

First of all, Congratulations to the couple! Though I am not a fan of Sofia noone asks our opinion as long as they are happy together. I am wondering what is her education anyway and does she have any brothers or susters?

I was trying to avoid the drama that I knew would come up on this board but now I feel like this getting out of control.
1. Do you know Sofia and Carl Philip personally? No? Well then how can you make judgments about their characters? You are only seeing 2% of who they are through the media- no where near a good amount to make an accurate representation of who they are. This goes for the rest of the family as well.
2. I am wondering why we cannot just be happy for them?! They just got engaged and we are already dooming their marriage and that has not even occurred yet!
3. The balcony while it may not be traditional- it was nice because news had spread that a press conference was going to happen so the public had come to the palace to see. But the press conference was just for the press so all the people who were waiting outside would have had to go home without seeing anything and if that had happened I promise you people would be complaining about the rudeness of just leaving the people there.
4. Lots of people are talking about how this announcement was much more hyped than Victoria's. The Press Department has changed a lot in 5 years and so has technology and the interest in the royal family. We can debate the press department somewhere else but it is an undisputed fact that the press department has changed a LOT since 2009.

Sofia has two sisters, Lina and Sara. Lina is working as project coordinator in Sofia's Project Playground and Sara is Research Assistant at Forskning & utveckling and Research Assistant at Department of Psychology, Stockholm University

Carl Philip and Sofia and Sofia's parents arrived to Drottningholm to celebrate the engagement.

The director of the press department, Margareta Thorgren to Expressen about the dinner this evening:
- It has been a private dinner with the family. Everyone in the family is very excited and pleased with this engagement. It's a really nice warmth in the entire family.
During the day, the congratulations have poured in, also from Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine.
- They have several ways congratulated both Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist during the day. Then the whole family will get together during the Victoria Day on July 14, says Margareta Thorgren.

That the press department has changed in 5 years is no reason to treat Carl Philip and Sofia differently than they treated Victoria, Daniel, Madeleine or Chris.

The good thing about the Nobels is that they are coming every year. I think that Sofia will attend this year, like Jonas did.

Sarahbellar- what a kind, thoughtful, gentle person you must be! I predict that Sofia will bring a lot of joy to her new family.

So many posters taking the moral high ground. So condescending that some of you are "willing to give her a chance". Have you any idea what you sound like?

No one is allowed to improve? No one is allowed to move on in their lives? Do you always cast out people you know that have done something you dont approve of?

Unkind and ungenerous is what it sounds like.

I wish them best wishes and fortitude against the media onslaught. I dont think they would bother with sites like this

So now its official.

Is the King planning a big wedding for his only son?

Someone mentioned Royalty from all over the world attending? Which would take a lot of organising to accommodate them all.

Will the bride wear the Cameo tiara?

Thank you for your kind words! I think you are right to predict that! Sofia seems to really have a good heart and she has a good head on her shoulders. Sure she did somethings in the past that we probably do not approve of but she has owned up to them- just like Mette Marit- and is turning a new leaf. I think Mette Marit and Sofia are very similar in that aspect. She is not trying to hide what she did in the pats but she is taking ownership of it which is a big thing to do especially on such a public scale!
