Congratulations to the couple! They are so beautiful together! I'm happy for them!

Congratulations to Madeleine and Chris :heartflower::twohearts:

I wonder what title Christopher will get, if any, as he probably won't give up his American citizenship? And I'm curious if he takes on the Bernadotte name like Daniel did?

But he seems to be a very nice man, just like Daniel - both appear to be able to give their wifes stability and support when they need it but are able to step back if their wifes need space. :flowers:

Congratulations to Madeleine and Chris. I hope it ends more fortunate than her first engagement.

I hope they have the strength to lead a life of their own. Good luck!

Just to add: The little video is one of the silliest things a royal court has provided, ever!!!

I agree, especially with the last sentence. The video is so terribly posed and her little happy chuckle in the end :unsure:

principessa 10-25-2012 06:29 AM

I love the video. It's so sweet.

Archduchess Zelia 10-25-2012 06:31 AM

Aw, congratulations to Madeleine and Chris.
He seems like a legit and sweet guy, not like that scumbag she was engaged to before.
It's kind of an odd way to announce it though, isn't it?

I thought I was the only one who thought the video was a little silly. It was like something out of an odd movie.

Congratulations to the newly engaged couple.... cant wait for their wedding.

Dman 10-25-2012 06:33 AM

It was nice to hear from him in the video though.

I didn't see this engagement coming right now, but I wish them all the best nontheless. And I keep my fingers crossed that this engagement ends in a wedding and not in tears. Madeleine deserves her happily ever after.

Let's just hope there will be an official date for the wedding soon. Her last engagement became a farce when they postponed a date again and again. My bets are on May or August.

And even though I really wish Carl Philip and Sofia their happily ever after, too, I really hope they keep calm now until after Madeleine and Chris are married. For the sake of CP&S and for the SRF I really don't wish them history repeating itself when it comes to a double engagement again.

So, YAY!!!! for Madeleine and Chris. :twohearts::fireworks::twohearts:

And please, please keep calm, Carl Philip and Sofia. Another few month of waiting won't kill you.

TRCRoyal 10-25-2012 06:53 AM

Well, I'm glad for Madeleine, and I wish her happiness and all that, but I don't like Chris, he seems weird to me.

I think they won't show up at most of the events.
But he's learning Swedish, so there's hope!

I'm quite afraid Madeleine would like to have a modern low key wedding without a white tie gala!!!!!!

At least one news agency is picking up on the US angle! Let's hope this leads to much attention here.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

I've been waiting for this one! So happy for them. Congratulations

Daisiesforever 10-25-2012 07:03 AM

I think we are in for a summer wedding. Looking so forward to it as they are a lovely couple.

My guess is the second or third week in June, after the end of the school year in Sweden but before Midsummer, June is a very common month for weddings in Sweden, even in the SRF. Another popular wedding date in Sweden is Saturday before Whitsunday, but as it's on the day after the Norwegian national day and the Norwegian royal family will most likely be among the guests invited to the wedding, I doubt Madeleine and Chris will chose that day.
