Prinsessan Madeleine förlovad - rapport | svt.se
According to Nina Eldh, there is yet no information on when the wedding will take place or were the couple will live. One thing is certain - the wedding will not be held before the wedding of Crown princess Victoria or next year's elections.
-There are two big events next year, and it will not be held before them, says Eldh.

Sten Hedman, a court reporter, says that engagement came at a strange time. The couple has been together for almost eight years so it was expected that there would be an engagement but it is a little odd that it would be revealed in this way (SvenskDam).
He thinks that it is also surprising that they get married only after the elections next year.
-It is more strange, but I guess they think that it becomes too much with two royal weddings and that it might take attention from the election. I assume that there will be no wedding until late fall. It is also strange to have such a long engagement. The king and queen were only engaged in three months.

** The election of the swedish Riksdag is on the 19th September 2010.
