That there are more soliders this time is because the cortege route is much longer. Madeleine and Chris only took a short route from the palace to Riddarholmen and there went onboard a ship.
Yes, I think too that the bigger amount soldiers is mostly because of the longer cortege route. But it will not be anything like at Victoria's wedding, there were over 6000 soldiers including members of the volunteer defence organisations and the Home Guard.

According to Expressen's article, there will be five military bands at the cortege route.

At Madeleine's wedding there were three military bands and at Victoria's twenty bands.

Vasaorden is the boat? The carriage is nice but with the boat through the waters is more romantic.

Yes, Vasaorden is the boat but no boat for Carl Philip and Sofia. And I don't think it would suit them.

Why would the spectacular Vasaorden "not suit" Their Royal Highnesses Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden, Duke and Duchess of Värmland?

Don't know if this discussion is suitable in this thread...

Maybe because IT'S remarkable. Vasaorden is rarely used on very special occasions, and has only been used twice this millenium. The state vist from the Japanese Emperor and Empress in 2000, and the Crown Princess Wedding in 2010.

I understand. It is not because Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia are "unworthy", it is because the Vasaorden is connected with the grandest royal events, with a (future) Sovereign. In that sense it is indeed a bit 'too much'.

Ah, Kingen already explained. Thanks. And I still think it wouldn't suit their personalities and the kind of wedding they want either.

You keep repeating this. But do you think that in a few generations the hypothetical first son of Carl Philips hypothetical first son will be seen more as the Head of the Bernadottes than a hypthetical first daughter of a hypothetical first daughter of Victoria?
I don't think his gender or the fact that he was Crown Prince a few months make him more important to the Bernadotte history than his younger sister.

I see it like you; him having been a crown prince or beeing male won't change a thing now. I very much hope the days of the patrichiat are gone.

Apart from that - I could never see why the male line should be more important, than the female line...

Not yet. I fear it won't be published before Friday, but I hope for tomorrow.

This exactly! I think the reason his wedding is more "grand" than Madeline's is because that is the way each sibling wanted it. Nothing more, nothing less. I would bet that the fact he was at one time the Crown Prince has nothing to do with it.

I'd be ecstatic, but sadly I don't think there is a chance. Caroline seems to have "retired" from attending Royal weddings and funerals. She only came out if retirement in 2012 for Guillaume and Stephanie of Luxembourg's wedding perhaps because Grand Duke Henri is a childhood friend.

well... in a way they are unworthy, based on the impressive credentials of the previous events where the vasaorden was used.

I wish those fabulous boats were used once a year in some grand national event instead of almost never

Svensk Damtidning met Victoria's chambermaid/stylist Tina Törnqvist at an event in Hotel Diplomat on Wednesday and asked her about Victoria's dress at the wedding. "It shall be a surprise, but it will be something cool", said Tina. Who is styling Estelle? "Her mother makes that", Tina said.

You highlighted the mention of Sofia's hairdresser so I assume he is the target of your comment. He (with his wife) has for 13+ years had a very successful salon in central Stockholm and often participates in that capacity in major events and shows. I am sure all the recent princesses that have married have included their personal stylists, hairdressers, make-up assistants and other professionals in their guest list.

That's cool!
