I emphasized Mr Christopher O'Neill (in English), as intentionally used BTW by the Royal Court in the guest list, to stress how detached from Sweden and Swedish life Chris is perceived to be. Sofia,...

Complete list of the (non-Swedish) ladies-in-waiting and/or aide-de-camps in attendance (again using Swedish for the Nordic royals and English for the non-Nordic royals). It is nice that they have...

I can understand "Mr O'Neill" as Chris has made it clear that he is not Swedish and doesn't want to be Swedish. He is treated as a foreigner then like other foreign guests. I suppose the Danes and...

Madeleine will move further down the line if CP has any children, but I guess the point is not so much that CP is # 3 and Madeleine is # 4, but rather that CP was born the Crown Prince of Sweden...

Is the Queen of the Belgians attending because she is personally closer to Carl Philip than Madeleine , or because Carl Philip as 3rd in line to the throne ranks higher than his younger sister ?

Yes, it is, but he's also a prince in his own right (Prince Daniel of Sweden) and, as Duc et Pair said, secondary titles like royal dukedoms are normally not used outside Sweden.

In the guest list for Prince William's wedding, I believe Victoria and Daniel were listed as:

HRH The Crown Princess of Sweden
HRH The Duke of Västergötland

I believe it is just "HRH Princess Sofia, Duchess of Värmland" without "of Sweden". That suggests she won't be created a princess on her own right, but use a courtesy title instead.

Sofia's position is consistent with someone who agreed to be on a TV reality show in the past. I mean, sharing your private life with millions of people.
