Can someone explain what JHMO stands for? I am trying to figure it out, but nothing comes in mind.

sofia looks lovely and very appropriate. it looks like there's a 'branding' campaign to make her look acceptable, presentable and 'ready to join the royal family', with her recent charity outing and this impeccable presentation of herself today.

Just an idea to think about: Do we really know that "being not allowed to attend" was the reason why neither Daniel nor Jonas were at the opening of the parliament back in 2009? Maybe they were allowed but had their very own reasons not to attend. Daniel had a very obvious reason with his very recent kidney transplant which later also stopped him from attending the nobles. Jonas did attend the nobles but wasn't there at the opening of the parliament. Maybe he had an important meeting at work he couldn't skip?

For Chris the opening of the parliament as a fianse was never an option because he got engaged to Madeleine after it and married before it. And he made it clear that he wants to stay a privat person. So attending at official events is his own decision and he can't be made because he has to because of his titles.

Sofia this year obviously had the permission to attend and she did attend. Very surprising to me also, but she did a good job.

So, maybe, just maybe, it's just a complete mess of circumstances what let it look to the outside that Sofia is handled differently. But also maybe she is handled differently because the SRF decided to take a different road than in the past. We never know.

So to summarise, Daniel was unable to attend the 2009 State Opening due to his health issues at the time and Chris was unable to attend the 2012 State opening because he wasn't actually engaged to Madeleine at the time. Sofia has attended the 2014 State Openingon account of her being engaged to carl Philip. Simple!

I agree there is a re-branding attempt going on. It's going to take a lot more than a few outings to white wash Sofia, with all the photos and videos of her nude/making out with porn stars, etc out there in the public domain.

We don't know why Daniel and Jonas didn't attend in 2009, since there was no talk about their absence at the press. It wasn't talked before or after, obviously no one wasn't interested in that or it wasn't expected that they would attend. No one of the court was asked to comment about it. The press just wrote that Daniel had to spend the most of his birthday alone, since the duty called Victoria to the Opening of the Parliament (it was on Daniel's birthday 15th September).
But since the press, especially Expressen, writes now that Sofia has been treated differently than Daniel, it seems logical that at least they don't have the information that Daniel stayed away because of his health.

totally, they have clearly some work to go through before people really accept her as dignified enough to belong in a royal family.

According to the court calendar in swedish, princess Madeleine attends also at the church service and at the Opening of the Parliamentary session at the Riksdag. She will not attend at the performance at the Royal Opera in the evening.

The church service starts at 12.30 at Storkyrkan (Stockholm Cathedral).

Madeleine and Sofia look like they came wearing the same outfit. The details are different, Madeleine has a fascinator, Sofia has a black head bow; but they look too similar. Watch the tabloids run "who copied whom" stories.

All the ladies look matching. Victoria's looks the same but with the colours reversed.

Leaving the Cathedral, someone congratulated Daniel because of his birthday.

It is lovely that Victoria recycled the Milly jacket she had at the Opening of Parliament in 2011 when she was pregnant with Estelle.

Expressen has already an article about the similar clothes of Madeleine and Sofia.
- Sofia and Madeleine really look like copies of each other! When you go to a fancy event you never want to be dressed similarly as someone else. It's a bit strange that such a situation may arise. If they want to avoid clothing clashes in the future, they must be better able to reconcile with each other what they are supposed to bear, says Expressen's fashion expert Emma Danielsson.

There's not really much choice is there. Black and white or white or black! Big choice I don't think however, I thought Sophia would have looked better with more than a wisp of a whimsy on her head and some white with the black would have lightened the effect and I would love to have seen a pretty had on Madeleine rather than that very tall fascinator nailed to her forehead.

Madeleine looks really mad and none of them seem thrilled. What happened?
