Expressen has a story about Daniel´s absence from the Kreuger wedding:
Därför nobbade Daniel bröllopet/That´s why Daniel didn´t come to the wedding
Expressen tells that because Victoria refused to comment Daniel´s absence from the wedding, there were speculations about if the relationship is on a crisis. Expressen can now tell that this is all wrong.
A source tells: Daniel would have wanted to be at the wedding, he has been a good friend of Lotta and Toffe for a long time. But the wedding was at the same time than another thing Daniel had planned for a long time.
Daniel Westling has not forgotten his roots in Ockelbo, he spends still time with a lot of friends he grew up with.
The source tells: That´s a gang who have known eachother from childhood and they gather together sometimes. Now they had a skiing trip planned for a long time, and that was impossible to change the plans.

It has also been speculations that the absence of Daniel was a tactical thing from the court, to make him more interesting before the wedding.
The source tells: That´s ridiculous, so wrong information. He just couldn´t come to wedding, it´s so simple as that. Why would the court want to hide him?
Daniel Westling sent his congratulations to the bride and the groom via Victoria.
Another source says: They knew that he couldn´t come and they had no problem with that.
The court will not comment about why Daniel wasn´t at the wedding.
- We work with the royal family, not with Daniel Westling, says Nina Eldh, the Director of the Information and Press Department of the court.
Pics 28.3.2008

Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Princess Madeleine and
Prince Carl Philip arrive at the Royal Opera house in Stockholm,
Sweden, March 28, 2008, to watch the premiere of the ballet
"King Gustaf III".

I just saw Madeleine's dress in this week's OK! magazine. Worn by Paris Hilton. :lol:
That's shocking :D In Germany you would say:
There are worlds between these two..;)
Here are some additional pics from yesterday I've found a minute ago:

I too think Princess Madeleine looks very elegant. As for Paris Hilton..ZZzzzz, who cares. One question, does Queen Sylvia seek fashion advice from her daughters? Perhaps she might. She is very beautiful, but sometimes her clothes reflect the 60's and 70's. Maybe they are her favorites, or she feels more comfortable in those styles.
My humble opinion, Madeleine being a blond would have looked better in a blue color, love the dress though and neutral stockings.
There are worlds between these two..;)

Yes, the one is working a lot more ;)

If Miss Hilton would have had more "support" in the...er...chest area, the dress would have looked better at her than at Madeleine. At the latter one...it has a touch of "pregnancy fashion"

IMO the Queen was underdressed with her costume...

Nice to see that Sigvards only surviving sibling, Prince Carl-Johan, was there too with his wife Gunilla. He seems to be in remarkable good health! Was Prince Sigvards son Michael there too by the way? And what about his widow, Countess Marianne?

Madelaine's 31st? I gather ANP made a slight mistake there... ;)
Thanks for showing all the pictures from Sofiero, they look both very nice!
Prinses Madeleine is 26 years and prinses Victoria become 31 on 14 july!!
I must say that Jonas is very handsome and IMO bears somewhat of a resemblance to Prince Felipe. He could easily pass as his brother.
Ouch, Greece lost.

Jenny Alexandersson:
It's so obvious it's all about football in Sweden right now. Yesterday I heard excited roars from my neighbours when the Swedish team scored against Greece. And I met a lot of football supporters wearing blue and yellow t-shirts this morning. A late night I guess...

Crown princess Victoria's boyfriend Daniel Westling and Madeleine's boyfriend Jonas Bergström didn't want to miss the match either. Madeleine turned 26 last night and celebrated her birthday with a dinner at Wedholms fisk together with mum and dad, Victoria, Daniel, Jonas, Carl Philip, Emma and Patrick Sommerlath. Her boyfriend and Daniel left the restaurant early to watch the game at Jonas place in Hovstallet. Prince Carl Philip and girlfriend Emma left shortly after. Daniel and Jonas looked very excited and happy when they left. I smiled when I saw the pictures in Expressen this morning. The king looked a bit grumpy leaving the restaurant at 21.30. Maybe he rather wanted to see the game than having family dinner...?

Is Patrick Sommerlath one of their first cousins?
