I think they are having the people they are close to at the wedding which is a good thing.When they look back on the day they will see and remember those they love sharing one of the biggest and most important events in their lives.

Who pays for the guests accommodation at Royal weddings? They always seem to stay in top notch accommodation so I was wondering if the guests pay for their rooms themselves.

Don't know how they do this time, nor how they did at Madeleines wedding but to Victorias wedding wich ofcourse was much bigger i know the King booked half of all the rooms at Grand Hotel and half of all the rooms at Reisen Hotel. Guests also stayed at the Royal Palace, Drottningholm Palace and at the danish and norwegian royal ships.

Leonore isn't on the list. Does anyone recall if Estelle was on the published list for M&C's wedding?

No she wasn't. They always said that she would attend if she was in good spirits. If she had a bad day she would not attend. It's probably the same situation for Leonore now.

It was only a matter of time before the Daily Mail got into the act. Its their lead story online. Sofia is described as "The tattooed topless model"

I wonder why the Swedish Court uses all sorts of languages on their guestlist?

They use Swedish and English for one couple:
H.K.H. Prinsessan Madeleine
Mr Christopher O'Neill

They say in Swedish
Fröken Anaïs Sommerlath

They say in English
Miss Helene Sommerlath

They say in English
H.M. Queen Máxima

They say in Swedish
H.M. Drottning Sonja

It is a strange mix. I would say: do it all in Swedish or do it all in English, not mix this and mix that.

They use Swedish too for Danes, for Norwegians, etc. But the Hofdame (Hovdam in Swedish) of Queen Máxima is suddenly "Mrs Van Karnebeek-Thijssen, Lady-in-Waiting to Queen Máxima". So apparently Nordic persons are addressed in Swedish and others in English, this even extends to Mr O'Neill vs Herr Behn...

Ah I see... it makes no sense at all to me too then

I can understand "Mr O'Neill" as Chris has made it clear that he is not Swedish and doesn't want to be Swedish. He is treated as a foreigner then like other foreign guests. I suppose the Danes and Norwegians on the other hand are "like Swedes" in the Swedes' eyes, hence their use of the Swedish language although Swedish is actually different from Danish/Norwegian (like Portuguese and Spanish, I guess).

I don't get the logic behind the alternate use of English and Swedish to refer to the Sommerlaths though.

Complete list of the (non-Swedish) ladies-in-waiting and/or aide-de-camps in attendance (again using Swedish for the Nordic royals and English for the non-Nordic royals). It is nice that they have been recognized.


Hovdamen Grevinnan Jytte Krag-Juel-Vind-Frijs, till Drottning Margrethe
av Danmark
Adjutanten Örlogskapten Ole B. Pedersen, Adjutant till Drottning
Margrethe av Danmark
Hovdam Monica Watterud, till Drottning Sonja av Norge
Mrs J M van Karnebeek-Thijssen, Lady-in-Waiting to HM Queen Máxima
Mrs Melissa van Waeyenberge, Lady-in-Waiting to HM Queen Mathilde
Ms Sumiko Nakamura, Lady-in-Waiting, to HIH Princess Takamado
Adjutanten Örlogskapten Michael L. Bager, till Kronprinsparet av Danmark
Adjutanten Kapten Magnus Wangberg, till Kronprins Haakon av Norge

Are you surprised? Years from now when she is a stooped, blue haired granny that's probably the information will headline every story written about the HRH The Duchess of Varmland....not Project Playground for certain.

Unless she cures cancer or negotiates peace in the Middle East, she is always going to be the topless Princess.

But the die is cast. The SRF is just going to have to make the best of things now.
