    Thank you. I was accused by my friends this weekend on Facebook of always asking questions that I can easily get the answer by googling. They were quite peeved and here I go dping it again. Sorry.
    I do think that he looks better with the scruff. I find it so crazy when some European royals stick their noses in the air at others. With all the cheating, sex scandals and illegitimate kids running around they are one to talk about a girl that did all these things 10 years ago when she was 20.

    There are jewels that are reserved for the Queen and I think the Crown Princess as well.

    There was chatter that the king and queen did not appove of Sofia. Carl Philip and Sofia started dating in 2010 and got engaged in 2014, their engagement was approved by the king (and the government), so I assume that Sofia won them over.

    Yes - go to any of the royal forums, especially Royal Foibles. I just know he's going to have a field day on this wedding.

    Or they just relented and gave permission to avoid him having to publically announce he's giving up his rights in order to marry her.

    I see your point especially considering that the the Swedish Royal Family (SRF) seems loving and close-knit and I can see the King and Queen being rather indulgent. At the same time his sisters, including the heir, are married and breeding, and also quite a few Swedish royals have given up their titles and / or rights to succession in order to marry someone considered "unsuitable." Furthermore the marriage also had to be approved by the government.

    My take is that it was a waiting game / test of time situation. To me it is totally understandable for the SRF to be dubious the prince dating a reality TV star and former Miss Slitz, so I get not welcoming Sofia with open arms on day one. But enough time has passed and Sofia has been in the public eye as a royal girlfriend for a few years without doing anything too untoward, and the prince obviously loves her, so that is why I think she won them over. They may not love her to Reese's pieces and some stories about palace infighting may come out in the future, but my guess is that after a certain point, there was not strong opposition to them getting married.

    Supposedly the same happened with Norway's Haakon and Mette-Marit.

    He's seriously hot-unlike virtually any other royal family member.

    In that one pic where Sofia is by the window, her dress looks strapless; I guess the lace top was removable?
