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
Great comment, cepe.

I think Prince Carl Philip & Sofia and the palace officials are probably in the planning stages or will soon start.

I think that the wedding will probably on the same scale as Madeleine's. Or even a little bigger, since Madeleine wanted it to be rather private and low key. I can imagine that this couple won't fight so much for a small wedding.

At Madeleine's wedding there were a good number of European Royals. Noone from the Netherlands, but that probably was due to the tight timetable of the new monarchs so shortly after their accession. And noone from Spain, probably due to the recession crisis there. But even Princess Takamdo attended from Japan.

So yes, it will be a very glittering event. Not on the scale of Victoria's wedding, but still very grand.

Considering how much Madeleine and Chris hate publicity I think they're pretty happy they didn't have to do a press conference when they got engaged.

Congratulations to Carl Philip and Sofia. I predicted that they would become engaged this year in the thread about what we thought would happen to the royals this year, and I was correct! It's kind of ironic how we were wanting for them to get married soon in their old thread, and now they actually are about to get married.

It will be interesting to see if Sofia will be granted a title or not.

I think the thing that's wrong with the balcony photo is that a balcony appearance for some members (myself included) is a little OTT for an engagement of a younger child of the King. Also, as others have said, Victoria and Madeleine didn't get one for their engagements, so Carl Philip and Sofia's appearance is a little puzzling.

If they are having an engagement party this evening, where are his sisters? If they are out of town, what's the rush with the party?

I am very happy for them. People change of course. Everybody makes mistakes when they are young, hers were public, that's all.

I knew the thread would go this way whenever this engagement was announced and I have to say- all the sour grapes and po-faced judging won't keep Sofia from becoming Princess Sofia of Sweden, Duchess of Varmland.

I'm going to enjoy the heck out of that wedding and the associated threads.

Can someone please clarify; did they really say CP proposed & they got engaged today or was this taken out of context by the media?

If he really proposed today, I find all this rush to announce very strange.

Why did they pick today to announce, since M&C were supposed to be back in the US? Why not last week when the whole family was there???

A congratulations to them and I wish for them to be happy.

It will be tough , as it was mentioned now they represent Sweden and the SRF, im sure the photos of her modeling will always resurfaced.

Im a little bit confused by the disorganization. If he proposed today why the rush to announce it today (Chris's birthday, etc)

I hope the Swedes will respect the choice of the Prince.
Agree, although it could have been even more interesting if Prince Carl Philip had proposed an engagement to the Austrian bearded lady!

Yeah, CP and Sofia stated that they got engaged this morning. Not sure why they rushed it. Maybe they were just really excited.

I think that the engagement was a surprise to Sofia and King and Queen knew before.

Government approval, consent of the king, organization of conference and dinner with parents of both were kept in secret. It must be a secret/surprise for Sofia :) Maybe she was only one who doesn't know?
That's why everything happened today.

Does anyone want to translate the press conference? Or tell me when the Queen starts saying Nej Nej to Carl Gustaf what context that was in?

It is just a small family dinner- the King, Queen, Sofia and Carl Philip, and Sofia's Parents.

Most likely they wanted to announce it formally now the day it happened because it is the last day of the work week and they did not want to risk having it leaked over the weekend. I imagine that they were just announcing it during the business week.
