It can be said in retrospect that maybe they should have provided more detail to show that they were not laughing at the teacher, or not done the post at all because of how it may be received, but that has nothing to do with Sofia and her friend being good or bad people, it has to do with them having PR savvy.
That's a good point of view, but there are a lot who prefer to take the first (laughing at the teacher) because that's what they think Sofia is capable of. She has displayed so-called wild child behavior and elements of it appear not thought through enough (what a weird way to write down). Or well-thought of. She has admitted that, that she perhaps has not always thought of the consequences.
I think it would only be reprehensible if the teacher was insulted by it. IMO that's a case between that person, Sofia and Camilla as it happened before her wedding and even engagement.

I think that her CV should have some general statement like Sofia is a former model and television personality. But there are some strong accusations out there like there was/is a concerted effort to hide Sofia's past and there is some form of collusion between the Swedish Royal Family, the royal court and the media to hide Sofia's past. I don't buy that. I think that there are some who do not find Sofia acceptable because of her past, and that's their prerogative, but I think that the reason there's no constant drum banging over a former glamour model and party girl becoming a Princess of Sweden is because most Swedes either don't consider these disqualifications to marrying into the SRF or just don't care.
Perhaps it would have been wiser indeed to include some of that stuff, but it has been stated before here that the general Swede indeed doesn't care about her past. Mostly it are people from outside Scandinavia and even Europe.
Liberal minded country, I suspect. Way too liberal for some.


But then, which Royal Court *is* perfect?

It amazes me how much P.Sofia seems to aggrevate some people, and that is in her position an unfortunate flaw to have.

To me, reading these blogpost she was in her tweens one of those tacky, annoyingly-girly girls like there are several around (and continuously more if you're watching tv) and it would be maybe a good thing if she had something similar like dutch W-A and Maxima "he was a bit dumb" moment, and i agree that the whitewashing by the swedish RF is not a good move, especially because i think that the swedish people can deal quite well with her past antics

However the vile and aggresive comments that are coming towards her from the internet outweighs that by many many miles imo.
I remember forums which openly wished her to become ill when she was engaged so she wouldn't be able to get married..... i don't go to that forum anymore, but it gave me goosebumps (not exaggerating) to read that people can be so hateful and cruel to others; i thought it only happened in movies, but it happens at forums quite similar to this one and by posters quite similar as us here

from everything i know that Sofia did ( and yes, i saw the pics, read the blog, saw the tv shows ), she did nothing remotely to have deserved the level of internet bashing she is getting (and for some reason, imo, mainly from non-swedish people)

People don't put every single thing they do on their CV. I don't get this whitewashing stuff

This is a nice dress and fits her perfectly. Also makes her look youthful, which she is.
Way to go Princess Sofia.
