Agree.

I think there might be some jealousy behind the scenes. (even though I don't see the reason to be jealous of Emma, especially now).

Of course it is only my opinion but it's not the first time I read something of this kind...
I agree with everyone who has alluded to such: that it is Carl Philip attempting to allay an insecure Sofia. Poor girl if it's true. Oh well. It's so clear Sofia is trying hard to fit into the conservative royal mold. It's good she has Carl Philip's understanding.

I think people have taken Prince Carl Philip's words, ran with it and are trying to make it out what they want.

Because the court press department should promote the work the royal family does, to what they use the apanage for, which the people of Sweden pay from their tax money. The court does an extremely lousy job in trying to get the press to tell about their work and not just of the love stories, royal women's clothes and the children.
Lindwall on Expressen has made some good articles about the queen's work with dementia and Victoria's and Daniel's visits on Kalmar and Gotland and told about their meetings with the asylum seekers and refugees. Otherwise, the press tells about the clothes.
Now when there was the state visit where the king, the head of state, is the host, it would have been a great opportunity to tell about the real work and meetings during the state visit and not just about the tiaras and clothes. Most of the people don't know at all what the royals do during the state visits, they think that they attend just glittery events. Instead the press concentrated on interviews of Carl Philip and Sofia during the state visit. Hardly anything about that on yesterday and today, but just during the state visit.
Another big lost opportunity to the court press department.

BB informs that Joachim and our Marie will also go to the wedding: Prinsesse Marie og prins Joachim også til svensk bryllup | Billed Bladet

That means Benedikte will stay at home and man the fort as Rigsforstander.

Prince Henrik won't go. He's too busy in June and it has never been the intention that he should attend the wedding, so it is not a cancellation: Hoffet: Derfor kommer prins Henrik ikke til bryllup i Sverige | Billed Bladet

Of course they make a story about something that has made people react.
Maybe Carl Philip didn't think before he answered, but he is 36 years old and should have learned that a royal must think about everything he says. And Emma is one of Madeleine's closest friends...
Perhaps he could have worded it a bit differently but since Emma has moved on and seems happily married with a child, how do we know she doesn't feel the same way? Every relationship is different and brings new insights and experiences to the two people involved. After 10 years together if they couldn't take that final step (marriage) it should have been obvious to both of them that it was time of move on. She fell in love again, got married and started a family and now it's CP's turn.

I have to agree with this. When you're on the verge of your wedding and you're talking about the person that's to become your spouse, it would seem odd if the words weren't full of the best possible phrases one could use. To me, its obvious that CP was thinking very much in the present and speaking of the one he is to marry.

I've referred to my second husband as the love of my life and best friend. I never thought (nor did anyone else) that it was in any way a slur against my first husband. It expressed the feeling of now.

Our Mary will be there, too, so there will be an Australian presence.

Be there all the scandinavian princess. There would be a shame lacked Marie?

I've often thought the same. Afaik both BRF & DRF have made series that describes the entire court from top to bottom, the ceremonies, what the royal family members do all day including QMII checking the guest rooms (even smelling the bathroom soap iirc) ahead of a State visit & QEII inspecting the flower arrangements ahead of a banquet.
SRF has never done anything like it and the way they've been battered by the media concerning the private life of the King and the wartime activities of the Queens father I don't see it happening in the near future either.

Joachim is listed as regent on the 12th of June. The Queen will be in Norway, Maybe Frederik and Mary are going to the pre party on the 12th ?

Oh yes. We have seen Queen Silvia inspecting the Karl XI's Gallery before an official dinner. The flowers and the setting of the table.

But I agree, we don't see it very often, and I don't know if that is the important part of their work.

German ZDF will start broadcasting at 15.35. So sure the Swedish tv will also show the arrival of the guests.

There are different kinds of love, perhaps he loved her but was never in love with her and that is why they never married. You can't force yourself to be in love with someone no matter how hard you try. I think it took them 10 years to realize they were not right for each other and end it.
