I am surprised Kate would be invited as she was not yet engaged to William at that time (June 2010 ?).

Yeah, I remember reading that girlfriend Catherine had been invited. No way the BRF would ever approve of sending a girlfriend as official representation. It was an odd story, though a nice gesture from the more informal Swedes (if the story had real merit).

I find this very insulting towards the Wessexes. They have attended many events in Europe and seem to get on really well with everyone.
Just keep sending them even if they are not considered "important".

I've no doubt the various royals would rather see a friend show up, than a virtual stranger [who may be 'higher ranking'] but who is unfamiliar!
I believe Edward and Sophie were seen sailing with WA and Máxima aboard Princess Beatrix' yacht De Groene Draeck.

he also attended the wedding of Haakon and Mette-Marit .

True. I forgot that one as I don't follow the Norwegian royals very closely.

Actually as both the Cambridges and the Sussexes are now full time "working" royals for the "Firm", I wouldn't be surprised if they do get sent to foreign occasions instead of Edward and Sophie more often.

If my memory is working today, I think I can safely say that Charles can and does attend occasions where his presence is called for. I think HM sends representatives from the House of Windsor that mesh best with the occasion.

People seem very quick to suggest that the Wessexes are unimportant. It's hardly like HM has been sending the Harewoods as her representatives at foreign Royal events recently and has desperately been waiting for one of her closer family members to marry/become full time working royals so she can send someone more senior instead! Let's not forget that despite now being tenth in the order of succession, from the time of their marriage until the second wedding of the Prince of Wales, the Wessexes were actually the second highest couple in the order of seniority after HM and the DoE. Even after the weddings of Charles, William and Harry over the last decade or so, the Wessexes are still the fifth most senior couple in the BRF.

I'd say that HM perhaps divides foreign Royal events into ones where she is invited as British Head of State and those where she is invited as distant cousin Elizabeth. The PoW it seems is usually deployed as her representative at the former, whilst the Wessexes have attended when it's the latter. As Charles takes on more of HMs role I'd say we might see the Cambridges taking on some of the former events but that Edward and Sophie are likely to retain the latter ones as being represented at a family event by one of your children is more personal than being represented by one of your grandchildren.

Let's not get too off-topic with the relationship between Charles, the BRF and the continental European royals - that can be discussed in the http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...rope-2060.html thread.

Keep this thread for Charles's birthday.

I'd love to see Albert and Charlene attend too but I don't know if the timing will be right as there will be a lot of events on in Monaco next week in the lead up to National Day.

Margareta Thorgren, the Director of the Press department of the Swedish Royal Court, said to Expressen:
- The royal couple received an invitation, but because of the state visit in 13-15 November they have declined. No one else from the royal house will go. The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel will also take part when the Italian president comes here.
Thorgren said also that the king and queen are sorry they can't attend, but the planning for the state visit has been very long, it started already in the spring and therefore, this state visit is a priority.

i think they meant catherine being invited to charles' birthday, not to send her as official representation to the wedding of victoria and daniel.

On Wednesday November 14th the President of Austria, Mr Alexander van der Bellen and his partner Mrs Doris Schmidauer will bring an official visit to the Netherlands. At Noon, the royal couple will offer a lunch to the presidential couple.

In the evening there will be a banquet but this will be organized by the Prime Minister, Mr Mark Rutte. It will not be in one of the royal palaces, but in the Prime Minister's residence, the Catshuis. It is unusual that a Prime Minister offers a formal banquet for a visiting head of state.

I think this special arrangement was done to enable the King and Queen (and Princess Beatrix) to go to London.

But that could just be, to use a topical phrase, "fake news" or just tabloid trash, IMO. Pefsinally, I think it highly unlikely that the then girlfriend of Prince William be invited to the Swedish wedding, unless the couple were close to the SRF.

Which is why I wrote "the media reported". Though that said Charlene Wittstock was there and like Catherine she wasn't engaged to her future husband yet.
As we've already been told off this is something not to be discussed in this thread.

Charlene was there, but Charlene and Albert's engagement was announced in the week following the wedding.
