And yes I am scpetical about some couples too much display of tenderness.
No need to touch or kiss all along your lover in public to show your love especially when there are cameras.
I am much more impressed by tender glances.Look at Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philipp.There is no doubt there is lot of love between them.
The boat was many times quite far away from the shore. Perhaps there were photographers at a boat, but the royals hardly had time to follow where they were, because their boat was turning and moving ahead. It looks like there wasn't anyone else at that time, so they shared a tender moment, probably remembering their own wedding and a differend kind of boat trip with Vasaorden.
One more moment at the boat, Victoria and Daniel

Nice one about Daniel and Carl Philip looking at the happy couple

I would never have thought to say that of Victoria but she seems to be an attention seeker.Why kissing and showing all that affection on the boat where her newly wed sister was.
Bless my soul!!! Between Soraya and Ricarda there are some serious nasty bits!! Victoria a attention seeker??? Showing off affection and kissing on the boat??? Estelle not suppose to be present at a church wedding???? What the heck are you on about??? Can I tell you about the affection between Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel? I am very sure that today's wedding took them on a trip trough memery lane to their own wedding a few years back, and lets face it, love is in the air!! They are real people with real feelings and did not go overboard!!! Estelle's precense in church was for me very special and I am sure it carried the blessing of the bride and groom. You do not know these people personally so I am really put of by your comments about them!!! Another thing, baby's definitely doesn't belong at a reception after a wedding (espesially a night reception). They will get tired and that is what nanny's are for!!!

Estelle's presence in the church didn't bother anyone, she is not only cute child, but at the same time very calm.

I can bet that in the future, the picture of Victoria giving the reading with Daniel and Estelle by her side will be one of the most unplanned popular photo from the wedding. Estelle may look at it as she grows older and be told that she was a very important part of Aunt Madeleine and Uncle Chris' wedding.

Sometimes the least expected and spontaneous things are the most treasured.

Even if Estelle has no memory of the event, as I suspect she won't, she will be able to see the video and photographs and will know she was an important part of the occasion, and will therefore feel a part of it.

This was my favorite part of the ceremony. Very candid, and sincere. I was glad that when Estelle started fussing, Daniel took her closer to Victoria, instead of outside in the hallway. Estelle did a great job during the entire thing, making little to no noise, and staying in the area that was designated for her. I've seen plenty of children her age run around the entire sanctuary of the church, and make a good amount of noise, so Estelle gets a gold star from me for being a model little princess during her Aunt and Uncle's wedding.

Yes, he knew that what his little girl wanted, and what would calm her, was to be close to her Mummy, so that's what he did. It was a lovely moment, I thought. They gave me the warm fuzzies, and it takes quite a bit for me to get the warm fuzzies. I'm not a maternal person, and I don't usually gush over babies. It takes a special one, and a special relationship as we saw with that little family, to give me that silly smile.

I´ve always thought is kind of funny. I mean, the things we critize about our "not favourite" could be perfectly used as well against our favs...
In this case, V&D displaying their love and showing little Estelle for PR reasons... aren´t we awake that the same could be applied for our idols if we want to? They´re royals, for god shake, they have to show a good image and all them do things just for PR reasons, it´s just a matter of research.
But of course, we see in other royals what we would never see in our favourites...
I have standards which I apply to everyone, no matter if they are my favourites or not. It's actually the other way round. If someone meets my standards I like him (better), if he doesn't he falls from grace (in this case Victoria who actually used to be one of my favourites).

Neither Maxima nor Mary did bring their babies to the weddings in their families (Maxima could have in 2004 to Friso's, Mary in 2008 to Joachim's). That's a fact. Nor did those couples feel the need to show their love for each other quite so demonstratively.
If they had I would have critizised it and questioned the reason behind it.
(Kissing on the deck of the ship which is like a stage, visible for everybody. I am sure Victoria was totally unaware that there might be photographers around. She is only in the media's eye since 36 years. So how should she know? And for the record: If pics of Frederik&Mary or Haakon&Mette-Marit kissing on the deck of the boat turn up I will criticize them too.)

Estelle's presence in the church and absence in Drottningholm is just one detail of the whole picture. Yes, all royal houses/couples need good publicity but none of the other European RFs released as many pics/videos of their little one or brought the child along to as many public engagements at a very early age.
It's all about degrees and nuances for me.

But I agree that there are a lot of people with double standards here and there is a tendency to be more forgiving towards those we like than towards those we don't like.

I just want to comment about one detail. The court and the swedish press actually has an agreement that they will publish pictures of Estelle on a regular basis. In exchange, the swedish press will not send paparazzis after them and not publish pics taken by paparazzis. It has worked out quite well, methinks.

1. The fact that Estelle was welcome at the rehearsal is a good sign that Madeleine and Chris were excited to have her there.

2. V&D had one little kiss; they weren't making out! I just don't see the problem with this, but perhaps that's a cultural difference.

Aw, what a lovely family... love how Q.Silvia has her hand on Estelle's leg...
And what a clever thing they took Estelle to the rehearsal...if she'd been really restless they might have decided to leave her at home during the wedding itself...

You don't know the temperament of Mary and Frederik's or Maxima and Willem-Alexander's children, while their parents do, and they may have felt that it would be too much for the children to sit through a wedding ceremony. Estelle was well-behaved, and caused no trouble whatsoever, so I don't see what your issue is. She's part of the family, and therefore, should be allowed (and welcomed) at a wedding of her Aunt and Uncle. As to the kiss between Victoria and Daniel, as someone pointed out, they may have been remembering their own wedding, which took place this month as well, and wanted to share a little private moment. Nothing wrong with that. I give them credit for being open with their affection towards each other.
