Princess Victoria of sweden - Royal wedding

She actually looks really nice in that outfit. It's more stylish than the usual frockage worn by royals (see Diana wedding gown horror). And she and Daniel seem genuinely in love. Letizia of Spain has an obvious eating disorder. She's like a concentration camp victim. Look at her arms! She looks unhappy too. I bet her marriage to Felipe was arranged in the first place. Why didn't the king of Spain, Juan Carlos, come to the wedding?? Madeleine is so beautiful. So is her brother. Albert of Monaco is a fat, ugly pig.

The gown is deadly dull, but the veil and crown are stunning! Seriously, why wear a gown that dire? Does the princess have such a nothing figure that all she has to show off is her neck?

That raises an interesting question, r19. Are there any royals that are openly gay?

Same-sex marriage is legal in Sweden (other countries with royals that allow same-sex weddings or civil partnerships: UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Portugal), so, technically, a prince or princess could marry a person of the same sex in those countries. I don't see why it would be frowned upon.

What has happened to Queen Rania of Jordan? She is always the most stylish of them all, but today she looked like she has escaped from a drag show. Horrible hair, horrible tiara, veeeery thin.

Victoria's brother Carl-Philip is bisexual. It's an open secret (lot of gay man in that family), but it is out of the question for him to be open with it. He has had a longtime girlfriend who he broke up with last year and now he is dating a pin-up model.

King Juan Carlos of Spain just had surgery to remove a lump located in the lung. He is ok, but I think the doctors told him not to travel. Also, the Spanish Royal House usually sends the Crown Couple to those events, not usually the king (even though the Queen did attend the wedding). Another version (which is very true) is that he cannot stand Letizia at all, and they practically have no communication between them.

Also, a Spanish newspaper (El Mundo) once hinted that Letizia might have an eating disorder and were harshly censured by the Spanish royal house to the point that no news media would dare to hint at that again. There is a lot of censorship in Spain regarding their royal family.

R33: any gossip about the state of prince Philippe's and Letizia's wedding? There has never been any chemistry between them and they don't look happy together at all.

by Anonymousreply 3406/19/2010


There is really no chemistry and it has a lot to do with the personality of Letizia versus that of Felipe. Felipe is a very mellow guy and Letizia is very dominating and egocentric. (By the way, I follow closely Spaniard news particularly that of the Royal Family, and what I just said is what everyone in Spain is noticing.) Another point is that Felipe after his marriage has distance himself from his own family (his two sisters in particular) and the rest of the other Royal Family. You will see that both Felipe and Leticia stayed together during the whole ceremony while the other Royal couples mingle amongst themselves. Letizia is trying to consolidate her presence in Spain (since the monarchy is NOT secure since a lot of people are Republicans or Juancarlistas ei. Like King Juan Carlos but not Felipe), and by doing that she coming out as someone who is very insecure and controlling. Also, Felipe and Letizia are starting to have vacations separated (She alone in Switzerland and Portugal, while Felipe is... who knows where).

Prince Carl was Crown Prince until they decided to change the laws and allow first born women to become Queen. You think since the law was already in place when he was born they would have waited for the next round of children instead of letting Karen Carpenter become Queen.

Victoria is far more beautiful than Madeleine, despite the jaw (which is smaller in real life - the pics do her real life face no justice).

She has finer features, is more regal looking, and today, she was simply radiant. She looked stunning.

She is also a warm and friendly person, unlike Maddy, who overdressed for the wedding -- attention seeker that she is.

Btw, r39 completely nailed it. There's nothing remotely gay about the hubby. Only Americans would think he pinged.

The hotter royal, imo, is Crown Prince Haakon of Norway.

by Anonymousreply 5306/19/2010

r51 that happened when Carl Phillip was a year old or so. It's not as if he'd been expecting it and they took it away from him. Sweden is very into gender equality, they wanted to banish the old semi-Salic style of succession where the males inherited first regardless of birth order.

The Swedish bishops threw a fit last month when Victoria announced that she wanted her father (the King) to give her away in church - Swedish couples traditionally walk down the wedding aisle together and have disdained the Anglo-American style of a father "giving the bride away". They said it was "not Swedish" and devalued gender equality! The compromise was that Victoria and her father met the groom halfay up the aisle, and they continued on together.

I love the photos of Victoria. I love what she wore in all the photos. That girl has Grace Kelly style. I hope we see more of her.

I think England changed their rule for who inherits the title too. If William has a girl born first, she will become Queen.

The UK hasn't changed its succession laws yet, boys still get the throne 1st. however if William's 1st-born is a girl I believe they may change that law (and the horrible one on the books that bans any Roman Catholics or any heirs married to Roman Catholics from inheriting as well).

alas ABBA didn't show but Bjorn & Benny are good friends of the King and I believe were invited to the wedding today.

Who is Prince Albert's girlfriend? Does anyone know what's going to happen in Monaco if Albert doesn't have a child? I know he has an out of wedlock boy with some woman but I understand he can't inherit the throne. Does Caroline's son get it or does Monaco go back to France?

by Anonymousreply 6306/19/2010

his gf is some woman named Charlene that he's dated for ages, but for some reason won't marry. Oddly enough, she was his "date" to the wedding today in Stockhol; in the past, most royalty attending the weddings of other royalty didn't bring "dates", only spouses or official fiancees could accompany them. Times apparently have changed.

Albert's two illegitimate kids cannot inherit his title or "throne" although they can inherit his money (he's loaded). When Albert dies, his leadership of Monaco passes to Caroline (if she's still alive); after her it will go to her eldest Casirhagi son. This unless Albert marries and has a legitimate child of his own.

"She actually looks really nice in that outfit. It's more stylish than the usual frockage worn by royals (see Diana wedding gown horror)."

Yes, Diana's gown was a monstrosity. It was very of it's period, the eighties: too damn much of everything. The damn thing had a 25 ft. long train! The carriage she rode to the church in was small, and the train and gown got crushed and wrinkled by the time she got there. The dress was a disaster, just like the marriage.

Isn't the Crown Prince of Norway married to a former single mother who was on the dole? Letizia is a divorced tramp whose first marriage the Catholic Church managed to overlook because it was civil and, therefore, 'didn't count'. Frederick of Denmark married some real estate agent from Australia. And Victoria's husband was a personal trainer.

I don't think the citizens of those countries care. In Spain, for example, they have used Letizia (white wash) background to say that the monarchy is becoming 'more like the people and closer to it's citizens' and not just for people of privileges.

The only royal people marrying other royal people are of dead monarchies because they need the wealth and connections (like the current French dukes, etc).

R88: Carl-Philip went to a posh boarding school in Sweden and a friend's sister was there at the same time. According to her, it was well known and accepted at the school that CP was bisexual. After he graduated, there were rumours that he was having an affair with a Swedish singer, Peter Jöback, and some people say that they even made out in public in a nightclub in Stockholm. That was in the 90's so internet and internet gossip was not big at all here. Luckily for the prince. And the press didn't write about it, of course.

Shortly after that, Carl-Philip has a new girlfriend, who is a commoner from a normal Swedish family and - she is allowed to move in with him, be seen with him on parties, is invited to the royal family and so on. That is usually something that takes _years_, but it seems that the royal family was willing to accept anything to stop the rumours.

Funny thing, Peter Jöback and his male partner/husband was invited to the wedding and were seen on tv on their way to the dance floor. ;) I think it's because PJ sang at the royal concert and all artists who did that were invited.

Sure, our crown princess Mette Marit is far from perfect, but she's doing a great job and she's very much liked by the Norwegian people. The king and queen let their kids marry out of love, as it should be. Though our princess Martha Louise is kinda crazy and married an author or romani heritage. He is also crazy. Thank god she is not first in line to inherit the crown. And also, little princess Ingrid Alexandra looked pretty today. Her first big event. Too cute!

He used to be a great athlete. That whole family is dysfunctional. But unless he has lost his character with his waistline, it's possible his girlfriend loves him because he's a good man.

Prince Nikolaos of Greece and his fiancee attended the Swedish royal wedding. His mother, Queen Anne Marie, is the cousin of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden. The Greek Royal Family remains an entity and retain their titles even if they do not reign.

So far no-one's been able to tell me why they all have those medals (the men) and the women wear sashes and stars. Good old Carl Philip (drool) is wearing a necklace star thing... what's that all about?! Obviously I know it's a royalty thing -- but does each medal/sash/necklace thing have specific meaning, and if yes, where can you find out about such things?

by Anonymousreply 12806/20/2010

Thanks for the link, R100!

King Constantine sat right behind Carl XVI Gustav. Victoria's younger brother is drop dead gorgeous. So are the Crown Princes of Norway and Denmark.

Queen Margarethe's consort is another Prince Philip, in other words, a complete ass. He could barely contain his boredom throughout the ceremony. She's well-loved in Denmark. He, in contrast, is not.

R128, they're chains of office. They date back to the late medieval and early modern times when such things denoted ranks, such as lord chancellor, lord treasurer, and what not. The chains around the various kings and princes represent military orders.

by Anonymousreply 13006/20/2010

R128: the orders and medals are given as an honour from the king. The highest ranking order in Sweden is the order of the Serafim and it is only given to royals or heads of states. That's the wide blue ribbon that all the royal guests carried across their bodies - prince Daniel was given his before he exited the church yesterday.

Then there are other medals that can be given to basically anybody as an honour. There are different kinds of medals and different sizes. (The bigger, the better, sort of.) The king holds a medal ceremony every year when he gives out medals to Swedes who have made a difference in some way over the years: scientists, writers, singers etc.

Medallions are also made for special royal events and given to people who participate in them. All the servants who helped with the wedding yesterday were given a medal from Victoria and Daniel - Im not sure if the same medal, or a fancier one, were given to all the guests too.

The big golden "necklaces" that the king and prince CP wore yesterday were the order of the Serafim. The chains are only given to very special, high ranking people and I think that it may be given only to male members of the royal family in Sweden.

R106: Funny you should say that. The Swedes actually move to Oslo because the unemployment rate is so high in Sweden. It's much easier to get a job in Oslo, and the salary is MUCH higher than in Sweden. But then again, everything is more expensive here too.. I think the most important thing is just to get a job though, and like I said, it's much easier in Norway. The Swedes often work in restaurants and shops, and you can hear Swedish EVERYWHERE in Oslo. More and more Swedes come here every day. They often mock Norway, and I'm not saying my country is perfect, far from it. I just find it funny that they talk shit about Norway when Sweden is in such a dire that they have to move here to get a job. LMAO.

I love the fact that the Swedish Royal Family are direct descendants of Desiree Clary, a wealthy silk merchant's daughter from Marseilles. She was once engaged to Napoleon and her sister was married to Napoleon's brother Joseph. Desiree later went on the marry Jean Baptiste Bernadotte, a general of the French army and later a Marshal of the Empire.

It was Bernadotte who was later selected and elected to be the Crown Prince of Sweden as the country was in need of an heir. He was adopted by the King Charles XIII of Sweden.

A Hollywood version of Desiree's story was made in 1954 starring Jean Simmons as Desiree, Michael Rennie as Bernadotte, Merle Oberon as Josephine and Marlon Brando as Napoleon.

One of Princess Victoria's names is "Desiree".

Question for the resident royalty experts:

Is there a hierarchy among the European monarchies? Which are the 3 most prominent families? I personally think it's quite telling that Great Britain sent the Count and Countess of Wessex to attend the nuptials of the future Queen of Sweden. Does that mean that the Swedes/Nordic monarchies aren't very significant?

Also, why would Queen Rania of Jordan be invited, but not an assortment of Asian, Middle Eastern, or African monarchs? What relationship does Sweden have with Jordan? I know she's internationally known, but Queen Rania showed up in an unimpressive outfit/tiara and she's not from one of the European families...

Most of the European countries with monarchs have populations less than the size of California. The exceptions are Spain and Britain, and only the British monarch has reach beyond Europe, as she acts as head of state for a number of ex-British colonies (and pretty large ones, at that).

To us, they seem to live in a sort of Brothers Grimm fairytale world because we're not familiar with their day-to-day lives. The British monarchy is perceived differently because there's no language barrier and they attract fame whores like Diana and Fergie.

Actually both King Harald of Norway and Finland's President Tarja Halonen both wore the order of Serafim when they attended the wedding. The order was a gift from the king and it is gender neutral. The princesses and the queen also have the necklace but prefer not to wear it, I assume because it's heavy and wouldn't fit with their dresses and appearence. They just wear the star of the necklace.

R139...There was a certain amount of protocol involved with the seating arrangement in the cathedral with reigning monarchs given precedence over heirs presumptive and lesser royal personages. Though I do not have the 'Almanach de Gotha" readily at hand (LOL!!!), I believe the order of precedence for monarchs is dictated by the tenure of reigns. As for the presence of the Jordanian king and his consort, remember that that monarchy is the most Western in orientation amongst the Arab monarchs, which explains his presence. Same for the Japanese Crown Prince, who was dressed in white tie. You'll never see a member of the Japanese Imperial Family dressed in military uniform, owing to Japan's war-time role and post-war constitution.

As for Edward representing the Queen, much has to do with scheduling with a good deal of pr going into it. Protocol would dictate the presence of the Prince of Wales as Victoria is his counterpart. He may have been previously committed. They could not send William, because he would upstage the bride with speculation over his future plans. Hence, the Earl and Countess of Wessex!

by Anonymousreply 14606/20/2010

R146, that was a great response, but does it really all boil down to tenure? Is HM The Queen, Elizabeth II treated better than or equal to other European monarchs? She's more revered than the rest, but does her popularity have no impact on how the other royals treat her?

by Anonymousreply 14706/20/2010

R146, yes and no. The British Royal Family is the most well known and she is The Queen. But she is related to most of them. And Elizabeth will treat other reigning monarchs, or even deposed ones such as Constantine, as her equals. I believe that she's closest to the Danish Queen, who calls her :Lilibet," her childhood nickname.

Among the royals, the Grimaldis are almost considered the "poor relations," as they are "serene" and not "royal."

"What is the royal line for the Spanish royal family? How far back and all that?"

One of the best lines in Europe. Make the British royals look like Trumps. The King is a Bourbon on both sides (thus going back to Hugh Capet), and is descended from Louis XIV 17 ways and Maria Theresa of Autria 9 ways. When his grandmother, the favorite granddaughter of Victoria wanted to marry his grandfather, the Spanish parliament had to pass a law making her a Spanish princess because being a granddaughter of Victoria was not considered "royal" by Spanish standards.

Letizia is the first non-royal in history to marry into the family.

In other words, it's obvious that these ceremonies are primarily aimed at fellow royals (or should I say "royals" since in fact they're no different from you or me). I suspect it's all a matter of one-upsmanship.

(I'm the one who asked earlier about Daniel speaking English at his wedding, which is purely for the benefit of the other royals apparently rather than the Swedish public, which lends the royal family whatever legitimacy it has and presumably has enough national pride that they would prefer to hear their royal family speak Swedish.)

by Anonymousreply 16306/20/2010

English is the only language that most of the Continental royals have in common. It is particularly pervasive throughout Scandinavia. Pretty much everyone at the reception would understand English, and only the Swedes would undertand the Swedish.

Queen Margarethe also gave a speech in English at her son's wedding, although he was marrying an Australian.

that might have been the case but not anymore. Actually when Felipe got married, Juan Carlos told someone from the press that Felipe 'has crewed up the Monarchy.' In the family pictures (like during Summer vacation and Easter), Juan Carlos ignores Letizia all the time (they barely if ever talk), and he also ignores the daughters of Felipe and Letizia (it's so sad because it's very obvious). He is more close and caring to his other grandchildren. Believe me, if you follow the Spaniard Royal family, it doesn't take a genius to know that Juan Carlos doesn't like Letizia. Felipe's sisters, Elena and Cristina, also doesn't talk to Letizia. The only one that is close to Letizia is the Queen because she is head over heels in love with Felipe.

I recall a documentary many years ago that included an interview with the Grand Duke of Liechtenstein (father of the current Grand Duke). He was saying that he wanted his land back in Czechoslovakia that had been seized by the Communists.

Most of their landholdings had been in Czechoslovakia and Hungary, they bought Liechtenstein just to get the title and never really lived there until they got kicked out of their real homes during WWII.

The old Grand Duke was doddering at that point. As he was ranting about his confiscated property, his wife leaned over and said, "Darling, we know we are not going to get it back"

Fast forward, the current Grand Duke and want-to-be Autocrat has probably worked hard to get that property. Does anyone know if he has?

The pressure in this economic climate is growing, so I think the Grand Duke has got other things on his plate at the moment.

Word was Felipe, tired of his father's meddling in his love life and dictating that he wed a royal or noblewoman (this after he was made to break up w/Eva Sannum, whom he loved dearly) - told his father in no uncertain terms re. Letizia, "if you don't like my marrying her, you better prepare everyone for Queen Elena". And with that, the kind relented and the engagement proceeded.

r237, I completely agree and that is what I tried to say in post r206.

Too bad one of the Windsor boys isn't dating the pretty Madeline.

Again, R237, you are simply fantasizing. "Word was" is not documentation, and -- again -- there is no way you would know these things.

Victoria is one of my favorite royals! She looked so beautiful. Her sister is also beautiful. Though I wonder how Victoria felt about being compared to her sister and how Madeleine is the "pretty sister".
