I'm excited about the wedding being close but man, their joint monogram gives me a headache. So many swirls!

No. Victoria's and Daniel's and Madeleine's and Chris's banns were not shown live either. Possibly Aftonbladet and Expressen have cameras outside the Royal Chapel, but at previous banns the royal family arrived from the "family door" inside the Palace. SVT probably shows a short video of the church event after it has ended, like at Madeleine's banns.

Ah, that's where it comes from. 'Cause here in the Netherlands there is that video of Madeleine's banns available and I was already wondering how that could be if the event wasn't televised. But this makes sense and would do.

MARG 05-14-2015 08:30 PM

Are the Banns called on all three preceding Sundays prior to the marriage on 13th June 2015?

LadyFinn 05-15-2015 07:34 AM

According to Svensk Damtidning, there will be about 100 guests at the reception. Families, friends and representatives of official Sweden.

The court confirms to Expressen that Princess Madeleine's husband Chris O'Neill will not attend at the banns on Sunday.
- No, he can not be there, says Margareta Thorgren.
Why?
- He has since long time had other private commitments.
What commitments?
- It is private. He would have liked to be there, but now it is impossible to implement, says Margareta Thorgren.
One detail in this context is that Chris O'Neill's mother Eve O'Neill turns 73 years the day before the banns of marriage and reception. The court does not want to reveal what Chris O'Neill does instead of the banns on Sunday.
Just two weeks ago Chris O'Neill should have been with Prince Carl Philip's bachelor party in Greece, but at the last moment he jumped off and never showed up to the party in Athens.

EDIT Margareta Thorgren to Aftonbladet
"Of course, everything can change, but as it is now, he has other commitments and is unable to be with, says Margareta Thorgren."

Aftonbladet writes about Sofia's parents, that they love motorcycling. Mother Marie has three motorcycles and father Erik one. "Today they meet the royal family". Aftonbladet contacted Sofia's father Erik, who said that the family didn't want to comment.

Expressen's research shows that the majority of municipalities and county administrative boards around Sweden don't give the prince couple any present at the banns or at the wedding, the same happened at Madeleine's wedding.
One exception is Älvdalen, where Sofia Hellqvist grew up. The municipality sends the municipal council chairman Stig Olsson and Councillor Peter Egardt to the church service. Even Ing-Marie Bergman, project manager for Love Älvdalen participates.
- It's really exciting, and a glorious mission, she says.
What Älvdalen would give to Prince couple has been subject to careful examination.
- I can say that there has been a lot of discussion. Within the group has had many suggestions, and then there have been suggestions fom outside too, which is fun. It has an Älvdalen stamp, says Bergman.
But whatever it is she does not want to reveal.
- I do not want to do it. People can see it when we give it. It is not wrapped, so you will see it there and then, says Bergman.
Also Värmland, where Prince Carl Philip is Duke, gives a present. Governor Kenneth Johansson and his wife Viola attend at the church service and the reception - also with a secret gift.
- It is a gift that is linked to nature, and which we think is good, says Arman Teimouri, County Executive Coordinator of Värmland.

It's common practice nowadays to only have one but it used to be required by law to have three. Up until the 60s or 70s I believe.

Looking forward to the pictures and perhaps some video.

Chris IS there! Yay!

LadyFinn 05-17-2015 05:04 AM

And why did they arrive from there, unlike at Victoria's and Madeleine's banns, then they used the family door at the chapel. This isn't real... I can't believe this at all. Why is Carl Philip made so special.

Actually i think it is the better way to do it like this. But i agree with you that they should have done it also like this for the Banns of Victoria and Madeleine. Was the couple with the lady in blue Sofia's parents?

I updated the photos of Sofia's family to my previous post.

Patrick Sommerlath with family, arrived just in front of Carl Philip's and Sofia's families.

Thanks. Do we know who are the men with her sisters? Their partners or relatives?.

Their partners, according to Svensk Damtidning they have both lived with their boyfriends for some years already.

Victoria looked very beautiful, beautiful dress, great hairdo and nice hat. Madeleine looks good, but I wish she would have put her hair up. Sofia looked terrible at her sausage curls, and somehow her outfit didn't suit her at all, she looks good at simple dresses. Sofia's sister Lina looked gorgeous.
Estelle and Leonore are super cute. And it is great to see countess Marianne Bernadotte at the christening. I have a soft spot for the oldest members of the Bernadotte family.

I partly agree with you. I think Victoria looks good, but that hat?! In my eyes it looks like it going to fall off any minute. On the other hand I really like Madeleine's outfit and especially the hair and the fascinator. I agree with you that this isn't the best look for Sofia, but there is nothing wrong with it either. I think she has got influenced by her future sister-in-law when it comes to her hair.

Marianne Bernadotte af Wisborg looks as beautiful as always. It's great still seeing her attend these events. I wonder if Countess Gunilla Bernadotte was attending as well. We haven't seen her at that many royal gatherings since Count Carl Johan passed away.

LadyFinn 05-17-2015 05:57 AM

Since countess Gunnila lives in Båstad, it is a rather long trip to make for an elderly lady. Of course it would be great if she attended today.

Now it is official, after the wedding we have HRH princess Sofia, the duchess of Värmland.
