Congratulations to Louise Gottlieb and her new husband, I hope they have many happy years together.
It was sweet to see that Leonore was a flower girl. Was Nicolas a page boy of some sort? I was wondering why he was attending given that neither Victoria or Carl Philip's children were present.
It sounds like it was a lovely ceremony.

Probably because the bride is in the first place Madeleine's best friend and his sister was in the bridal party and his other sister was at the venue as well.

Yeah, I gathered that Madeleine was a bridesmaid because of her close friendship with Louise. Since there were no other children present I was just curious.

Through a discreet side entrance at Stockholm Central Station, the royals enter the room closed from the public. Only one royal crown over the door signals that the Royal family's waiting room is behind it.
The waiting room (Väntsalen) was built in 1871 and is adorned by paintings of the royal palaces Gripsholm, Haga and Drottningholm. There are crystal chandeliers from NK and the couches are designed by Carl Malmsten. The king and queen have their own waiting rooms - the queen's is slightly smaller - and both an own toilet.
A special door out takes the royals from the room directly to the train.
Nowadays, the royal family rarely chooses trains as a means of transport. The special royal train carriage from 1931 was used at the latest in May 2011 when Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel made their first official visit to Ockelbo, writes Aftonbladet.
Jernhusen operates Stockholm Central Station and are now auctioning a visit for a group of 20 people in the secret waiting room for the benefit of Musichjälpen. This year's fundraising is organized for organizations working against children who are victims of sex trafficking.

And Svensk Damtidning had recently an article about this room, in fact rooms, the queen has an own private salon there.
It has not been used regularly since Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine were small, and the royal family went to Storlien on Sports and Easter holidays.
- When Victoria visited the Central Station in another matter a few years ago, she remembered and said "oh, here I have been when I was little!", Kristina Homqvist says.
- It seemed to be a positive memory for her, and of course the royal family and their guests are welcome here whenever they wish. That would be fun!

There used to be a royal waiting room at the Central Station in Malmö but that was, with royal permission, turned into a restaurant during the massive renovations that took place a few years ago.

Svensk Damtidning's articles about the wedding of Louise Gottlieb and Gustav Thott. SD writes that the meeting between Carl Philip and Sofia and Emma Pernald and Tomas Jonson could have been strained, but Emma and Tomas solved the situation by just passing Carl Philip and Emma without greeting. And Jonas Bergström was as diplomatic, no one saw him and Chris talking with eachother during the wedding, it seems that they are avoiding eachother.

Sorry this to say, but I find it very insensitive, that Louise invited all these people for her wedding. I can't understand how she can be friend to Jonas Bergström and his wife after all... For me it is very questionable, how honest these friendhips are in reality...

Should Louise and Gustav not invite their friends Jonas and Stephanie, Emma and Tomas to their wedding, because Madeleine and Carl Philip were there too?
No one of us knows everything what happened between Madeleine and Jonas. But very likely Louise does, as she was then Madeleine's best friend. And still she has remained as a friend of Jonas and Stephanie Bergström. And Louise is still Madeleine's best friend.
Stephanie has been one of Louise's best friends for a very long time, they were both at the circle of Madeleine's best friends. Madeleine and Jonas broke off in April 2010. According to swedish press, Stephanie and Jonas became a couple in February 2011. Why it bothers Madeleine that Stephanie and Jonas became a couple, they started dating after so much time had gone from Jonas and Madeleine breaking their engagement. Madeleine had started dating Chris already way earlier than Jonas and Stephanie started dating. Madeleine can be angry to Jonas, but she has no reason to be angry to Stephanie.
Jonas Bergström is one of Gustav Thott's best friends, has been for a long time. And since Louise and Gustav dated from 2006 to 2013, Jonas is a friend of Louise too. When Louise and Gustav broke off, Louise started dating Ludvig Blomqvist, Stephanie's ex... If Stephanie hasn't done anything bad to Louise, I can't see why Louise and Stephanie can't be friends. Same with Jonas and Gustav. Adults accept that everyone makes mistakes, even their friends. Both Louise and Gustav attended at Jonas and Stephanie's wedding.
Emma Pernald and Louise are old friends, so of course Louise and Gustav invited Emma and Tomas to their wedding.

In Madeleine's circle of friends, it is not unusual at all that after breaking off people start dating their friends. Jan Dinkelspiel dated Madeleine's friend Caroline Leksell. After they broke off, Jan started dating Madeleine's friend Ellen Stendahl, they got married in August 2009. In December 2012 Madeleine and Chris attended at the wedding of Caroline Leksell and Graham Cooke. Louise Gottlieb was a bridesmaid at the wedding and Jonas and Stephanie attended too.

Historian Herman Lindqvist writes at his chronicle

Herman Lindqvist: "Victoria has to wait for the throne"
Victoria is by far the most popular person in the Swedish royal family. Everey year, therefore, more and more people ask: When Victoria will take over? When does she become the regent? The answer is: She has to wait many years still, maybe 10-15 years.
The explanation is that very few Swedish regents have voluntarily abdicated, so far only queens Kristina and Ulrika Eleonora the younger. Everyone else has died in office.
King Carl XVI Gustaf is at best health and is enjoying his work and life. He follows the old family tradition. He will not abdicate. This is duty above all.
Unless King Carl Gustaf wants to break the Swedish tradition "for Sweden - with the times" Victoria will most likely have to wait a long time. The advantage is that she gets thoroughly educated in her job while her children grow bigger and more independent. Victoria has to wait for the throne.

You can read here at the Summer Holidays with the Swedish royal family thread what the director of the press department, Margareta Thorgren said about publishing a photo during the summer holiday.
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post2135727

I think that the court has waited for the forest fires to end before they possibly publish a photo as a summer greeting. And it doesn't have to be a photo of the whole family.

Expressen Kvällsposten has counted the work days of the royal family from the calendar at the court website between January 1 to October 22, 2018. Travels abroad and state visits count as a working day per day.

Sweden
King Carl XIV Gustaf: 122 days.
Queen Silvia: 91 days.
Crown Princess Victoria: 109 days.
Prince Daniel: 74 days.
Prince Carl Philip: 42 days.
Princess Sofia: 27 days.
Princess Madeleine: 7 days.
Chris O'Neill: 0 days.

And in comparison they have counted also the workdays of the royal family of Denmark
Queen Margrethe: 62 days.
Crown Prince Frederik: 75 days.
Crown Princess Mary: 69 days.
Prince Joachim: 48 days.
Princess Marie: 41 days.
Princess Benedikte: 48 days.
Så mycket jobbar våra nordiska kungligheter

This doesn't give the right result of the swedish royal family's work, if the workdays are counted from the calendar. There are work events, which aren't at the calendar, but there is an article at the court website of them. Or there are photos at court Facebook or Instagram. And for instance Daniel has work events, which are reported only at the social media of Generation Pep or Instagram of Prince Daniel's Fellowship.

King Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia, crown princess Victoria, prince Carl Philip and princess Sofia attended at the funeral of count Oscar "Oscis" Bernadotte af Wisborg at Rasbo church this afternoon.
Also attended: countess Marianne Bernadotte, countess Monica Bonde (daughter of count Carl-Johan Bernadotte), baron Carl de Geer and baroness Christina de Geer, Peter Wallenberg jr, Anders and Christina Wall ...

- We have gathered here in Rasbo Church to take a final farewell of Oscar Bernadotte af Wisborg. Now his trip is over, said reverend emeritus Folke T Olofsson.
- Oscar Bernadotte got a long life, and it was also rich, as a business leader, as agriculturist, forester, hunting companion and fencing enthusiast. But above all, as a father, grandfather and great grandfather.
After Oscar's children and grandchildren's families, the royal family's turn was to show their respect in front of the coffin. The king bowed and then followed the queen and crown princess, children and grandchildren, and then Oscar's 102-year-old sister Dagmar von Arbin who took a moving farewell of her little brother.
And it ended in light and hope, with Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" interpreted by Deri Rowlands.
- It fit so well! Oscis was so fun and he loved pranks, said one of his friends.
After the funeral, everyone gathered in the salons at the family Bernadotte's mansion Frötuna, where champagne and small delicate canapés were served from Hambergs in Uppsala. Oscar's son Carl held an emotional speech and when the guests then started to leave, the royal family was still there.

- It was a fine funeral. The king and the queen, the crown princess and Prince Carl Philip and the Princess Sofia attended the funeral. It was a private funeral and therefore the court doesn't comment anything more about what happened after the funeral, said Margareta Thorgren.

Thank you both for the reports; it's nice to see a big turnout. I can't remember who Oscar was named after if the information was released, but perhaps Carl Gustaf's cousin Oscis is the Oscar whom the little prince was named after?
I'm glad that the media kept the funeral relativley private - this is something I've always commended the Swedish media for doing. Much more so than most of the other European media outlets!
