Like the 'secret blog' old news before the wedding

Unfortunately they know their market. Before the wedding Sofia wasn't that well known and the stories likely had little traction. Now that she is better known outside Sweden and royal circles, there is more interest. More interest means more money which is all tabloids care about.

See it with any royal bride. The tabloids are happy to dig up any. Couldn't believe it would die when she married. Any dirt is juicier yet now she has a tiara and not simply girlfriend/fiancé. Kate it was mooning stories, unfortunately Sofia has a more substantial background to dig at.

It is not that interesting or damaging at all

B.T.W be carefull with former employees with their own motivations to go to the press (money, a lost job, revenge, the need to be considered important)
It is also possible that the former Slitz employee told the story to Hänt Extra a long time ago, but Hänt Extra didn't want to publish it then but waited for a better moment. And now the story is far more interesting because the press has found out how good friends Peter Forsberg really is with Daniel and Victoria.

If the gloves are coming off the press may have more on Sofia that has never been published. The rehash may be whetting the appetite for whatever it may release. Did the king and the government vet Sofia before consenting to the marriage? I expect Chris and Daniel had to undergo background checks, especially Daniel.

Svensk Damtidning writes that although Carl Philip and Sofia moved to Drottningholm already about four months ago, they are still officially registered to the green villa at Sjötullsbacken where they lived previously. Alexander is also registered there, although he was born weeks after Carl Philip and Sofia had moved to Drottningholm. Svensk Damtidning writes that according to their information Sofia and Carl Philip still use their apartment at the green villa on Djurgården (the king helds the disposition right to the villa) although they now live in Drottningholm. According to SD's sources Sofia's parents stay at the villa when they come to Stockholm to visit Sofia and her family.
Villa Solbacken should be ready next spring. Svensk Damtidning writes that it remains to be seen, if the family will then after their move be registered there or if they still will be registered officially to the green villa at Sjötullsbacken. Svensk Damtidning has asked a comment from Margareta Thorgren.

The noise is not that big of a problem. His ears are covered during the race. But carrying a baby forward looking ... ... sorry, but aren't they thinking about their sons health? It's so unhealthy for those little still very undeveloped hips.

Apart from that, I really love this new photos. He's such a cute little boy. It will be exciting watching him grow up.

Most babies here are carried that way by their mothers here in Sweden, so I guess you have a lot of head banging into walls to do if you're going to be upset about that

We used to do that all of the time with our daughters. Looking forward when awake, so they could look around and see. And when it was time to sleep, we would turned them around. I don't see anything wrong with it. The legs are fine either way of carying.

If the villa is at the king's disposal does that mean it's government property? If so why are the Hellqvists staying there? CP is well off enough to put them up in a hotel in Stockholm when they visit or stay at his villa when it's ready. They are the Middletons 2.0.

That might be your view, but I stay with mine. It's unhealthy! And that's not just me but most doctors and midwives here in Germany think the same. Don't carry forward looking until the hips are fully developed. Which is not the case with little Alexander. But this is going off topic.

I'm not saying that it's my view - I'm just saying that this is how most parents carry their kids. And just like SLV said, they are turned the other way when they sleep. Nothing strange. And I haven't noticed any general problem here with kids (or adults) hips. Sofia is just doing what most/all other mothers are doing.

Princess Madeleine carrying Princess Leonore the same way as Princess Sofia carrying Prince Alexander.
