Svensk Damtidning writes in their paper version about Carl Philip and Sofia at the icehockey game some time ago. They hold hands all the time and sat close to each other. According to SDT, Carl Philip and Sofia are the royal couple most in love in the whole Europe right now. There is no doubt about it - the engagement is near now. "It will be Carl Philip and Sofia, it just is so", says a "source close to the couple".
Carl Philip is said to have explained to his family and relatives how very fond and in love he is with Sofia. And how much she really means to him. If anyone has had doubts of the couple earlier, they definitely do not have doubts now.

But we shall remember, that SDT has written similar articles before and predicted an engagement many, many times before too.

Did the gossip press write the same kind of stories about CP and Emma when they were together?

As far as I remember, the gossip press didn't write very much about CP and Emma, they weren't seen very much together in public. Times have changed, the gossip press is more hungry about news of the royal family, and of course Sofia because of her background is much more interesting person to the gossip press than Emma. I think that Emma didn't want to be seen on the media. And the rules of how CP and Madeleine may act with their partners in public seem to have changed also radically, if you compare the things how they were about five years ago. And Svensk Damtidning has also changed during the years, it has become more and more like a gossip magazine writing unreliable stories, while it at first was a rather good magazine.

It is not "the gossip press is more hungry about news of the royal family" but the people who demand more information and thus make the yellow paper create &hunt for more pictures &stories of the royals.Look at the pages,the Sofia&CP-relationship has raised a lot more controversy and discussions than any other topic on this board.Some royals have a very ordinary,balanced lifestyle and don´t wear extravagant clothes or have affairs all the time-that´s why they are not so much followed by the press.

No, there were not so much interest in Emma, as she wasn't a celebrity, "just" a royal girlfriend and a discreet one. Sofia was already known to the Swedish public when she started dating Carl Philip, she was something of a pseudo/semi-celebrity in Swedish gossip columns as being a "Slitz girl" and having participated in Big Brother, so naturally the gossip magazines got interested of their relationship. I think the first notice I had of Carl Philip and Sofia seeing each-others were when a newspapers wrote how Sofia had sent a giddy message to her friends about her date with Carl Philip.

From MTV3, quoting Johan T Lindwall's article in Expressen.

The situation between Carl Philip and Madeleine culminated at the weekend to that Carl Philip and Sofia didn't attend at Estelle's birthday party with the rest of the royal family.
Instead of the party, Carl Philip and Sofia spent the weekend at their holiday house with their friends. So Carl Philip didn't attend at the birthday party of his godchild. Carl Philip and Sofia were seen skiing, and they returned to Stockholm on Sunday.
Bertil Ternert from the court press department told to Expressen, that there had been earlier agreed other goings for Carl Philip, so he could not attend at the birthday party on Saturday. However, the prince will celebrate Estelle's birthday later. Carl Philip doesn't understand Expressen's writing about that he was angry for Madeleine, according to Ternert this information isn't correct.

They chose to spend the weekend with friend in Prince Carl Philips sports cabin in Sunne, Sweden with some friends. Prince Carl Philip was preparing for the participation in the Vasaloppet ski race next weekend."

Carl Philip is skiing at the Stafettvasan relay today.

And it seems that Sofia is skiing at the relay also, since Madeleine wishes them success at her Facebook:
My dearest brother and Sofia, I wish you both all the best of luck today!!!!

Carl Philip was skiing the first leg at his team, at the same team was also Madeleine's best friend Louise Gottlieb.
Sofia skis the last leg at her team, so Carl Philip can be waiting her when she finishes her race, writes Svensk Damtidning.

Carl Philip's team was Team Due, the other skiers were Anders Lindstedt, Niclas Andersson, Louise Gottlieb and Jan-Åke Hansson (Carl Philip's good friend).
Sofia's team was Team Uno, the other skiers were Johan Hamre, Wilhelm Risberg, Johan Andersson and Henric Weijber. Risberg did his military service with Carl Philip and studied with him in Lundsberg, Weijber studied with Carl Philip at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Alnarp.

Carl-Philip has previously participated in both the classic Vasaloppet and SkejtVasan, but for Sofia Hellqvist this is the first time - even though she grew up in the immediate vicinity of the track.
Do you have any tips to Sofia who has not been taking part before?
- It is important not to take too much in the beginning, says Carl Philip.

Prince Carl Philip was defeated by his girlfriend Sofia Hellqvist, who said to Aftonbladet, that she is glad she did it and she is happy with her effort. At the finish line waited her boyfriend, mother Marie and father, Erik. Sofia said that it was about as tough as she had expected. Her team, Team Uno, crossed the finish line in 6 hours and 39 minutes while the prince's Team Due crossed the finish line in 6 hours and 56 minutes. Prince Carl Philip was not really happy with the waxing of skis, but Sofia Hellqvist praised the prince's effort and said that she thinks that he is cruel. Sofia said that maybe she should be better because she was born with skis on her feet. It was a couple of years ago she trained skis last but has started again.

Carl Philip and Sofia have given an interview to Aftonbladet about their relationship, love for Estelle - and expectations for Madeleine's wedding.

How important is it to win?
- We are definitely competitive. Though it's more fun than prestige, says Carl Philip with a laugh.
- It is especially a good activity to gather good friends, get fresh air and enjoy nature, says Sofia.
- But we will fight, Carl Philip says.
How you have prepared for the race?
- We have trained a bit at home. Both together, but also on our own, says Sofia.
- We all trained together in Sunne. We look a lot of skiing on TV and are inspired by our ski stars at the World Championships. You can also pick up some good tips from them, says Carl Philip.
- You can always train more, says Carl Philip.
- Definitely, says Sofia and nods in agreement.

Carl Philip, your training weekend in Sunne was while Princess Estelle turned one year old. There has been speculation about a wedding brawl between you and Madeleine. Was that why you didn't celebrate her birthday?
- The only thing that is true is that it was during the same weekend, which was for the simple reason that there were many people involved. We all are both sad and upset that it has painted a picture of any family feud. Of course we celebrate Estelle. She is a real little ray of sunshine that spreads joy throughout our family.
Will you be the best man to Chris O'Neill?
- I have never been asked to be best man. Nothing more to it. Should the question arise, I would of course gladly accept. It's their big day and we set up and support them in everything so it will be just like they want it.

You've been together for over three years now. Sofia, how do you feel you taken in the family?
- I have always felt welcome and treated well by Carl Philip's family.
Even with Princess Madeleine?
- Yes, of course. The teenage drama that has been painted by the media is sad. There is no such, and there has never been one. We have a great relationship.
- We are obviously very excited about the wedding. Chris is humorous and stable, there is no mistaking how happy he makes Madeleine, says Sofia.
- It's great to see Madeleine in love and happy and we are happy that she has found her true love. They complete each other in a nice way, says Carl Philip.
How do you see own your future together?
- We enjoy our relationship as it is today, said Carl Philip.
- Exactly. No pressure and no stress, says Sofia.
- But of course, we see a future together. That's why we are with each other, Carl Philip says with a smile.

Very nice interview. No family feud and the family has welcomed and treat Sofia very well within the family. They see a future together and look very happy and in love.

I think it's beautiful to see the real thing and actually hear from the couple in expressing their love, friendship and sense of fun. Something you can't get from the other tabloid stories.

Do you (or anyone for that matter) honestly think if there is / would be really any drama between Madeleine and Sofia or within the family with Sofia then Carl Philip and Sofia would openly said so in an interview?
I highly doubt it. They told the press what the press should hear, but that doesn't mean things are how they described. It also doesn't mean they aren't. I don't know the truth and doubt anyone besides the parties involved knows how things really are. It's just hard for me to believe they would openly admit Sofia is being treated bad and Madeleine hates her and there is a family feud over Sofia, should that be the truth.

I don't think they have any reason to lie about anything. The media is known to make up feuds within these royal families. Of course, families have their differences from time to time (all families do) but I really think all is well.

I'm more willing to believe the words that's coming out of Carl Philip & Sofia's mouths than the tabloid fodder.

You misunderstood my post. What I meant was: do you think IF there is / would be, in fact, any type of feud going on within the family because of Sofia, would Carl Philip and Sofia openly said so in an interview?

Please note, I am NOT saying there is, I am NOT saying they lied. I am simply asking if the facts would be how the press describes them not how Carl Philip and Sofia presents them does anyone think Carl Philip and Sofia would state so?

I, for one, hardly doubt they would. But I may be wrong, that's why I was curious as to what others think.

It would not be in their best interest to state a fact like that. IF IN FACT the family does not approve of her.

Perhaps they have finally warmed up -but, it would really set up a firestorm if they openly stated something like that, and if she and Carl Philip wished for her to become a princess or truly be accepted by the family or the people as his bride -that might be kept to themselves. MY OPINION is that admitting a fact like thatIF IT IS OR IS NOT true would not be in their best interest. I agree with you on this one!

Carl Philip and Sofia made this interview and gave it to Aftonbladet, because Expressen wrote that there is a row between Carl Philip and Madeleine about Sofia. I think that this is a PR-move, especially because Madeleine wished so overwhelmingly success to "her dearest brother and Sofia" at StafettVasan and even linked this interview to her Facebook. It is very odd that a member of the royal family quotes an interview at a tabloid, since the royals also in Sweden have many times complained about the articles in tabloids.
And I don't like that the girlfriend of a royal gives interviews about the members of the royal family before the possible engagement.

Bloody Ava! How many interviews, quotes, facebook comments and whatnot do they want to give to the yellow press? I agree LadyFinn, it a very curious media strategy. I can't recall ANY other royal family doing such things, apart from Marie Christine of Belgium, who was estranged from her family & wanted her revenge.

I am not sure how Bertil Tennert ever convinced the royal family that this is a wise media strategy, but IMHO the sooner he is sacked the better!

With this hasty, reactive behavior they give these gossip magazines too much importance. The old strategies of 'no comment' or 'the royal family doesn't recognize themselves in these discriptions' are more than sufficient. Why the royals themselves actually talk with these people is beyond me too.

That's why I started wondering... I don't know how it really is, but it starts looking like they are pushing the idea of Sofia being accepted within the family and Madeleine almost sisterly loving her a bit too hard in my opinion. If there is no feud and if they really do not care about what the tabloids think, why another interview, over sweetened with sugar coat?
