 Beautiful Swedes: Royal Wedding of prince Carl Phil of Sweden to Sofia Hellqvist--The Royal Palace Stockholm Sweden

Earlier today a Swedish Royal Wedding occurred. I'm always interested in royal weddings for many reasons but more importantly, THE ROYAL COUTURE and FASHION! Prince Carl Philip of Sweden (36 years old)--the really, REALLY CUTE one!--married Swedish reality show TV star-turned-royal, Sofia Hellqvist (30 years old). Prince Carl Philip is third in line of succession, following his sisters, Crown Princess Victoria (who will be Queen) and her sister princess Madeleine. In other words, he really has nothing to do with the rest of his life except look really, really cute! At all times! He's kind of like Prince Harry but HOTTER!

Carl Philip met his future bride back in 2010 at a Stockholm nightclub. She was in a Reality TV Show called "Paradise Island" and loved wearing bikinis...

Bikini Past: The bride--Sofia Hellqvist--was a model and reality show TV star of a Swedish show "Paradise Hotel" back in 2005. Oh, and according to Wikipedia, she made out with porn star Jenna Jameson. Alrighty then!

Other than the tacky tattoo, she looks lovely. My favorite gown is the light pink with white embroidery on one of the guests.

No. He IS third in line, but Princess Madeleine is younger, so she is actually fourth.
Second in line is Crown Princess Victoria's daughter, Princess Estelle.
