Spain and Monaco, okay, understandable I suppose.
I am surprised about the Luxemburg absence as well....

I'm sorry if I have missed this, but is anyone from the British Royal Family attending?

Or Guillaume and Siblilla. They have often attended foreign Royal Weddings.

I don't think the younger children to Henri and Maria-Theresa are close to the Swedish royal family. They have probably only met very few times so i understand that they don't send anyone if Henri, Maria-Theresa, Gulliaume and Stephanie is unavailable. After all this is more of a family wedding with those you really know among the guests and not a state wedding for a heir to the throne when you must send representation wether the bridal couple know them or not. So it is not that surprising.

Spain does not surprise me as they rarely send anyone. Though Monaco is a little bit surprising as Albert is and have always been very close to the swedish royals. But you can't get everyone you want :)

I also noticed that. It worries me that she might be ill. She's 92 and lives in Båstad so i understand if she doesn't have the strength anymore to go to Stockholm but i really don't hope she is very ill. She's always a lovely sight. So full of grace and dignity, yet very nice and humourous.

We don't know if someone of prince Daniel's family were invited, but they are not attending. I personally think that if they would have been invited, they would attend. No relatives of Chris either.
Louise Gottlieb and Lovisa de Geer of Madeleine's friends are attending. No friends of Victoria: no Andrea Brodin, no Caroline Nilsson, no Leonie and Karl-Johan Persson, no Caroline Dinkelspiel, who all attended at Madeleine's wedding.

Don't know if Daniels sister were invited. We will never know for sure. Maybe she's abroad on holiday and couldn't attend.

Daniels parents have asked to not be invited to events like this (if it's not about Daniel and his own family) as they want to continue to be private.

I think they are having the people they are close to at the wedding which is a good thing.When they look back on the day they will see and remember those they love sharing one of the biggest and most important events in their lives.

They don't like any media attention at all at themselves. Yet they come when they are invited by Daniel and/or Victoria. They always stays in the background and have never spoken out in media about the royal family. I have huge respect for them for that.

Who pays for the guests accommodation at Royal weddings? They always seem to stay in top notch accommodation so I was wondering if the guests pay for their rooms themselves.

Don't know how they do this time, nor how they did at Madeleines wedding but to Victorias wedding wich ofcourse was much bigger i know the King booked half of all the rooms at Grand Hotel and half of all the rooms at Reisen Hotel. Guests also stayed at the Royal Palace, Drottningholm Palace and at the danish and norwegian royal ships.

Leonore isn't on the list. Does anyone recall if Estelle was on the published list for M&C's wedding?

No she wasn't. They always said that she would attend if she was in good spirits. If she had a bad day she would not attend. It's probably the same situation for Leonore now.
