Quote
Chris O’Neill has respectfully declined a royal title and Swedish citizenship according to a statement released by the Swedish Royal Court today, May 17. Mr. O’Neill intends to continue his career in the financial sector after his June 8 wedding to HRH Princess Madeleine and thus the Marshal of the Realm said:

    "In reference to these requirements, Mr. Christopher O'Neill has respectfully asked to remain a private citizen and not be granted royal status."

This means that upon marriage, unlike his future brother-in-law Prince Daniel, he will not be made Prince of Sweden nor will he be Duke of Gästrikland and Hälsingland. In the same statement the Royal Court explained that Mr. O’Neill will remain a citizen of the United States and will not be seeking Swedish citizenship.

Thanks Snokitty for posting  :flower: Chris is flashing a real smile in a couple of photos. Finally!  :thumbsup: He should flash his pearly whites more often. It makes him look younger.

Maddy is so pretty. 

I'm liking Chris more and more, he seems ok.

P.S. How is it decided if a spouse of a royal gets a title?
For instance, would Princess Eugenie and Beatrice's future husbands be offered a title?

 ???


Title: Re: Princess Madeleine & Chris O'Neill's Wedding
Post by: Alexandrine on May 20, 2013, 06:43:55 pm
^ Depends on the Queen but they won't probably get one.

Madde's first fiance was going to use her ducal title but was not going to be a prince like Daniel or at least no one thought that at the time. Daniel got the prince title and uses the ducal title of Victoria.

As this is the first time women have the same rights as men in the succession line they should have gave the same rights to men as women. So if Carl Phillip wife is going to be a princess then Madeleine's husband should be a prince. As Chris is not accepting titles and not changing his nationality we don't know what king CG was going to give Madeleine's husband.

I wonder if he didn't want to complicate things with a further citizenship? When the engagement was announced it was reported he already has a dual citizenship in US and UK.


Maybe with his businesses, a royal title may have been a bit of a hinderance for him in some cases?

I've read that no one from the spanish family is going.

It shows how much the SRF has lost contact with the other RFs. They say that the reason is that Madeleine is fourth in line. But they attend those celebrations because of friendship with the other RFs. Cristina was third in line and all the Swedish RF came to the wedding.  :cookie:

Most likely they were ask not to attend in order to not draw attention away from the occasion. The press would be trying to get the scoop on all the problems within the SRF instead of covering the wedding.   :dontknow:

Post by: Snokitty on May 22, 2013, 06:44:10 pm
Maybe but wasn't the inauguration before they dropped charges on the Daughter? Maybe they have found them unlikeable for years and now see their chance to break ties.   :dontknow:

I know history shows when a Monarchy is imploding that the other monarchies try to keep their distance in case it brings about a similar situation for them.

LOL that is the question of the year and not even the palace will know. The PR palace man has made so many errors related to this question when she moved to NY.

I think she will keep getting tax money and bodyguards because she will say that she will represent sweden in the US.

Except Brigitta all lost their position in the line of succession. And considering the year and how male chauvinist was the court, my theory is that Brigitta also lost hers.

But the problem here is not that Madde marries but that she is going to live in the US. She cannot "work" for the RF.

Hi

I went to Sweden's Royal Palace yesterday and visited the Royal Chapel where the Royal Wedding will take place, it's absolutely stunning.

The rooms in the Palace are so regal, the furnishings, the ceilings, the woodcarvings, the fine crystal, silver and handpainted china, the portraits, the jewels are beautiful. I visited the Royal guest quarters where Prince Charles and Camilla stayed (and slept) in when they visited. The royal guest apartments are massive, like having your own Palace practically while visiting as a royal guest.

I don't mean to be a snob, but when I walked through the Royal Palace and viewed the history and saw the details which went into marriage's and brides being selected over Cenuturies, it pained me to think that all of these Prince's are now marrying so poorly.

After visiting Sweden's Palace,I am truly befuddled why Kate chooses to stay at home, with her parents? What new bride would not welcome the chance to live in such Royal historic surroundings and research every detail of all the history of the royal family and these buildings,and artwork?

There is so much to research and explore that a year could be spent on one floor, just researching and reading about all aspects of the royal families and their European cousins for Centuries.

Sweden is buzzing with anticipation of Madeleine's wedding and she is "LOVED" by the people. I spoke to people on the street about her and they truly adore Princess Madeleine and Crown Princess Victoria. They have taken Daniel to their hearts now and spoke warmly of him.

P.S. I spoke to someone who writes for Aftenbladet and she told me there is trouble in the Danish Royal family perhaps, but it's not with Princess Mary and Fred, it's with the divorced Countess, (Pr.Joachim's ex-wife Alexandra)she and her husband are having trouble in their marriage according to recent rumours (He "supposedly" has a roving eye and is spotted with others at nightclubs.) She wants to save the marriage , but he wants it open, to do his own thing. She is at her wits end and does not want another failed marriage, so is hoping to save things.)

Thank you so much for sharing Serene Grace.

You said "I don't mean to be a snob, but when I walked through the Royal Palace and viewed the history and saw the details which went into marriage's and brides being selected over Centuries, it pained me to think that all of these Prince's are now marrying so poorly." You're not being a snob, I completely agree with you. I've traveled extensively through Europe and could never get enough of the beautiful castles/palaces and their history. Had I been in Waity's shoes I would be devouring the history books. Can you just imagine having tea with Queen Elizabeth and talking to her about her ancestors? It would have been fascinating!

Here a bit about Madeleines former boyfriends
Quote
Pontus Westergren and Princess Madeleine had a romance in the late 90s. They met through their common interest in riding. Pontus Westergren is 35 years and is a recognized name Inside riding. He has, among other ridden for the Swedish national team. Today, he is together with the Swedish sports journalist Suzanne Sjögren.

The first confirmed love relationship that Princess Madeleine had was with event planner Mattias Trotzig. The two teamed up for a few months during the spring of 2001. It is still unclear why they went so quickly from each other. Mattias Trotzig is now 35 years and forms according to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet couple with Swedish blogger Linn Herbertsson.

Pierre Ladow is probably the one who had the slightest chance to tie the bag. Gothenburg boy who is one year older than the princess, met Madeleine in Saint Tropez shortly after her break with Mattias Trotzig in 2001, and it was never really more than a holiday fling. Pierre Ladow is married, has two children and lives in London with his family. He working in right financial world, writes kjendis.no.

Shortly after meeting with Pierre Ladow, meetings Princess Madeleine Erik Granath - a real bad boy with convictions for drunk driving, ill-treatment and handling of drugs. The princess is defiant and stick to the four years older boyfriend, whom she met through her older brother Prince Carl Philip, but the relationship does not hold the pressure in length and lasts for a year.

If the royal family thought they could breathe a sigh of relief after Princess Madeleine's break with Erik Granath, so they were mistaken. It looked promising when Madeleine fell in love with the pretty lawyer Jonas Bergström. A loyal friend who delights most and in August 2009 he suitor for the princess and gets engaged.

But 23-year-old Norwegian girl Tora Uppstrøm Berg tells Norwegian Look and Listen, she has spent a whole night with Jonas Bergström after the engagement to Princess Madeleine. The scandal was fulfilled, when Princess Madeleine switch off the engagement a few days later.

Foreign guests for Princess Madeleine’s wedding
With ~days to go before Princess Madeleine of Sweden marries Christopher O’Neill in the Palace Church in Stockholm, the Swedish royal court has not yet released a list of guests, but this is expected to appear in a few days. However, some guests are already known.
The Norwegian royal court has confirmed that the Crown Prince and Crown Princess, as well as Princess Märtha Louise and Ari Behn, will attend the wedding, and the Danish court has announced the presence of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, and Princess Benedikte. The presence of Prince Joachim is quite unusual, as he is normally the one who stays behind in Denmark to act as guardian of the realm when other members of the family attend royal events abroad, but in this case Queen Margrethe herself will remain in Denmark.
According to the British magazine Majesty Prince Edward of Britain and his wife Sophie (aka the Earl and Countess of Wessex) will also attend the wedding, which seems plausible as they are the usual British representatives at foreign weddings.
As this is a much smaller event than the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel in 2010, and not a state occasion like that wedding, fewer guests have been invited and fewer official representatives from Sweden and abroad will be present. There is thus no reason to expect for instance Japanese or Thai royalty or the presidents of Finland and Iceland; the foreign royal guests will probably be restricted to the reigning European royal families and possibly a few members of non-reigning dynasties such as Greece, Hohenzollern and Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and possibly Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Bavaria.

Princess Madeleine will wed her fiancé Chris O'Neill in a lavish ceremony on Saturday afternoon, in the country's second big royal wedding in three years. Back in 2010, the Swedes held their breath as Madeleine's older sister Crown Princess Victoria married Prince Daniel in Stockholm.

Madeleine, the younger sister of both Victoria and Prince Carl Philip, has long had her private life splashed across the Swedish tabloids, however, and unfairly so according to Roger Lundgren, royal expert and editor of Kungliga Magazine.

"She is fed up with the media attention that she's been getting ever since she was eighteen," he tells The Local.

When the princess left high school, she was seen by the Swedish media as the "party-girl princess". Papers reported that she was enjoying the life of a high-flyer, enjoying London shopping sprees and Stockholm nightclubs.

"She's not a party animal - God no - it's just because she is so beautiful that the media always takes the chance to be vicious to her. They're still always referring to her 'luxurious' lifestyle at every chance they get," he explains.

"It's bullshit. She works for a charity in New York. But the paparazzi still don't leave her alone. Her relationship with the media is complicated now, she doesn't appreciate doing interviews."

But Lundgren insists the princess is "super sweet" face-to-face, and particularly excels when working with children.

STOCKHOLM (NRK.no): Chef Stefano Catenacci alerts spectacular and very much in nontraditional menu Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill wedding dinner. But even a prinsessess do not get all their wishes fulfilled.

I think people will be surprised. It's definitely not a traditional wedding menu. It is a fairly modern way of thinking, says Catenacci.
 
Celebrity chef and chef of Operakällaren in Stockholm smiles.
 
- I'm good at keeping secrets, says Catenacci.

 :queeny:   He for the second time in three years, received the honor of being responsible for the menu in a royal wedding. Just inside the doors to Operakällaren hangs a handwritten card from Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel with warm thanks for their support and efforts during their wedding in June 2010.
 
Now is the younger sister Princess Madeleine who have hired Catenacci to her wedding with British-American Chris O'Neill Saturday.

No "touch" of American
 
Then Catenacci lead the 56 chefs who will create four-course wedding dinner and wedding cake, to the approximately 300 guests.

The menu is strictly confidential, laughing Catenacci when NRK.no try to fool some hint out of him.
 
- My advice to the couple has been that the food must be seasonal and that it must be Swedish. And they have followed.
 
- So there is no touch of the United States to track the menu?
 
- No, no American. There are Swedish, stating

On Tuesday, the 30-year-old princess stopped by the police in Stockholm when she tried the sneak through rush hour in a bus lane. And it does not - even if you have royal genes.

It was during a raid on Kungsträdgårdsgatan between the port and the castle, the black Volvo XC 60 with the princess behind the wheel was stopped, writes Aftonbladet .

- I can confirm that she was stopped in traffic control, says Lars Lindholm, who is head of the unit that was responsible for the raid, told the newspaper.

How Sweden's 'Party Princess' fled to New York with a broken heart - and fell for a banker who she will wed tomorrow


    In 2010, Princess Madeleine fled to New York after breaking off her first engagement to Swedish attorney Jonas Bergstrom amid media reports that he had cheated on her
    Tomorrow, the 30-year-old royal will wed Anglo-American banker Christopher O'Neill, 38, in Stockholm

Quote
Three years ago she crossed the Atlantic with a broken heart. Now Sweden's 'party princess' returns from New York to Stockholm to tie the knot with her new, British-American love.

On Saturday, Princess Madeleine - the Duchess of Halsingland and Gastrikland - will wed New York banker Christopher O'Neill in the Swedish capital, bringing together European royals and top New York socialites for a grand celebration.

Madeleine, 30, is the youngest of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia's three children and fourth in line to the throne.

Born just 11 days before Prince William, Sweden's pretty Princess Madeleine was once tipped as the perfect match for the heir to the British throne. And not surprisingly, her model looks and outgoing personality seem to have garnered her nearly as much attention as her elder sister, Sweden's future queen.



Madeleine Thérèse Ameline Josephine, Princess of Sweden, Duchess of Halsingland and Gastrikland, came into the world on June 10, 1982, at Drottningholm Palace.

The youngest child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, she has an elder sister – Crown Princess Victoria, five years her senior – and a brother, Prince Carl Philip, who was born in 1979.

She began her schooling at the Vasterled parish pre-school aged three, continuing her education at Smedslattsskolan in nearby Bromma four years later.

The keen equestrian and gymnast went on to attend Carlssons Skola in Stockholm, finishing her senior level studies at the city's Enskilda Gymnasiet in 2001.

Always a popular figure with photographers, she was thrust into the spotlight on her own when, in October 2001, she moved to the UK, saying she wanted to improve her English and "live like a normal girl". "I've always wanted to go abroad, to get to know other cultures and try new things," she said.

Her chance to blend into life in bustling Chelsea, where she shared a home with a family friend, was short-lived, however, as Madeleine found herself unable to escape the Swedish media.

"I had really hoped for a private life in London," she said after calling a press conference so she could "have peace and quiet" once and for all. "I've felt chased," she said. "It's no fun to have people lying in wait for you at the door of your house."

Along with the press, reports of the princess' taste for nightlife followed her to the UK. "My friends call sometimes from home and say things like, 'They're saying over here that you were at a club until five in the morning, is that true?'," she said. "And it's not true most of the time."

Within months Madeleine had decided to pack up and return home, with a spokesperson describing her UK stay as "extremely tough".

In addition to Swedish, she's fluent in German, French and English. And in January 2003 she enrolled at the prestigious University of Stockholm, where she studied history of art course – later embarking on a further course in ethnology.


To put her unhappiness behind her, the young royal moved to New York where she began dating financier Chris O'Neill. By February 2012, Madeleine had moved in a plush Manhattan apartment with her handsome American.
 
It was clear that Chris was fully welcomed by the king and queen when he attended the christening of Princess Victoria's daughter Estelle, Sweden's future sovereign, a few months later.
 
Shortly afterwards, Queen Silvia announced their engagement, telling reporters that Chris was "every mother-in-law's dream".

Chris looked like he was about to cry as she walked towards the altar and second, he is being SO PERSONABLE!

Estelle was adorable and hilarious, reaching out to Vikkan while she was making that speech. She still looked adorable as she watched the violan players; she looked like she wanted a violin herself! She wiggled, but was amazingly well behaved the whole time.

^ Wow! He is head over heels with her - it was just so obvious. He looked quite snooty on the pictures I've seen of him but he/they could hardly contain their love and delight. It was fabulous and the baby beingb there made it such a family affair.

Is it hot in Stokholm today though? Everyone was fanning themselves with their service papers.


Wonderful Sweden!  :loveshower:

^^ I don't think it was hot but that inside the church with lots of people it got hot.

He seemed so into her, much more than Madeleine into him. I think it was bittersweet for her because it reminded her of the broken engagement.

Yes, He adores her. She looks so happy.
The wedding was beautiful. Madeleine looked and behave like a Princess.
She looked stunning. She is so beautiful. IMO

Chris totally won me over today. He seems like a warm, charming man.

P.S. It's sunny and warm here today in Norway, so Sweden must have same weather. People are out in shorts , so as you said Alexandrine, it may be a bit warmer in the Chapel, with all those people
I got warm during the tour inside the chapel, with the crowds.

P.S.S. Someone said Sofia is wearing the same dress Pippa wore for Kate's wedding, but in a different color.  :James:

That's how plants and flowers should be done inside of a chapel, not just trees placed stiffly somewhere.
I thought the ceremony and her dress was beautiful, so ladylike and delicate. Madeleline has a certain refineness which showed through.

Sweden's 'party princess' turned fairytale bride today as she married her banker beau watched by European royals and the cream of New York society.

Princess Madeleine, 30, the youngest of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia's three children, married British-born financier Chris O'Neill, 38, in Stockholm's Royal Palace today wearing a breathtaking Valentino wedding gown.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex and Princess Charlene of Monaco were among those looking on as the groom placed a tender kiss on Princess Madeleine's hand during today's ceremony.

Jonas Bergström must be kicking himself now  :P  To think that one day she told Hola magazine he was the man of her life and he let her down like that. I'm glad she found a guy who appreciates her  :loveshower:

I know it's not the proper time to say this again but ugh, that Sophia and her bad teeth  :thumbsdown: To think the next royal bride might be her... She's not Princess material! Why Carl Philip? Why?

Wonderful wedding and Madeleine the beautiful  bride I was sure she would be.  Chris O'Neill is so perfect for her, and so obviously adores her.
A really touching moment, apart from Madeleine and Chris, was the sight of Crown Princess Mary reaching out and it looked like holding Frederick's hand. They were both looking moved during the address by the officiating clergyman.  I had to lean closer to the screen but there was no doubt. Lovely to see that too.

I agree that was touching to see the tear in his eye.

And also touching to see CP Mary to reaching out for Frederiks hand.

I love Madeleines up do. If one look carefully it is possiblyto see the green myrtle that they have all worn. From QIngrid to QSilvia, QMII, Benedikte Anne Marie, CP Mary, CP Victoria, and now P Madeleine.

QIngrid should alledgedly have gotten the myrtle from windsor.

I am going to be one who rains in this parade because there was something off. I am one of the small number of people who liked Chris since the start. Strangely I've never liked Daniel  :tehe:. I always thought Chris was shy or not interested in fame, one of the reasons he may be attracted to Madeleine was her royal status but in any case it was obvious he didn't want the fame. That made him look cold in photos but today he showed that he can be totally emotional.

However, Madeleine was not into her wedding as I thought she would be. She didn't seem to correspond to Chris' attention a lot of the times. I wonder if she now considers that she got engaged again too soon.

I hope they make it work but I don't have a lot of hope  :dontknow:

P.S :  I also thought that something was going on with CP Mary. She looked sad/worried. Not her best day though I liked her dress. I will do a fashion review tomorrow!

 :goodpost:  That's what I saw too. I'm so glad I'm not the only one. I hope she hasn't had second thoughts and was just nervous, but she seemed very distant.
Her dress was not beautiful (her hemline looked like a bed cover) but it looked gorgeous on her. Though I liked the top part of the wedding dress.

But after the ceremony Madeleine showed much emotion, like Stephanie who was quite reserved during her wedding ceremony too.  I think they'll be fine.  I wonder if their kids will be raised Catholic or Lutheran.

Lovely wedding.  I got quite emotional during it.  I'm so glad she didn't marry that creep Jonas-talk about fakery!  

What's with Valentino doing a mushroom type design at the bottom of royal wedding dresses.  Look at Princess Sybilla's dress at the bottom and compare to Madeleine's: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-fstxcV9x7ws/T-eDv5Z1pJI/AAAAAAAAIMM/99Dc0AhKmEs/s1600/_Couple.jpg

Our commentators tell, that the sweedish church is very angry that the royals has insisted on the father giving away the bride.

A very stupid thing for the so-called Church to be worried about.  What about the Great Commission, healing the sick, bringing hope to the hopeless.  But I guess not modern enough for 'em.

Wedding is replaying again.

I think Princess Madeleine is just a refined lady. I saw love in her eyes to Chris.

I'll bet that idiot former fiancee who cheated on her is hiding away somewhere today. I wonder if he's kicking himself.

I just loved the entire wedding, I love Royal weddings , except for a few.

I was watching wondering why William never made a play for Maddy, she's certainly stunning and she did live in London for a few months.  :spy:

P.S. When the couple disembarked from the yacht or ship at Drottingham Castle ,Madeleine was looser, having fun, more attentive to Chris. I think.

I personally think Princess Estelle being there was so sweet. Despite the grandioseness of a royal wedding it also felt like a warm family affair by including her. Some cute pics here:

Sorry for one post after another (time to edit has run out).

Anyhow, one of the female guests caught my eye, her bloated visage seemed very familiar to me. Since many of New York's glitterati were on the guest list I put two and two together. Of course, it was the Wildenstein Cat Lady. I'm glad I didn't see Ivana Trump, a friend of Eva O'Neill. She's sooooo tacky.

I don't want to sound like Joan Rivers but I've read Mette-Marit wore a Valentino  :-  It didn't work. Some people, it doesn't matter what designer they wear, they don't have the flare.

As for Princess Theodora of Greece, you could see the flab on her belly protruding through the dress. What's up with that?  :cookie:

Please don't get me wrong but these people do have the money to look good. No excuses!

I so miss Princess Diana. She looked so elegant-not to mention perfect-with her wardrobe. Princess Madeleine is also very stylish.

I agree w you about Theodora she is looking messy and this is a
 Princess-actress who has been working in LA on a TV Soap Opera, those shows usually make their actresses in their 20's stay fit. I'm surprised she looked so bloated. She looked a mess to me, the hair looked messy,dress and she looked thrown together last minute.      IMO   Mette Marit keeps wearing dresses wrong for her. Imo She can't do frilly anymore, she is a statuesque,tall Lady,those frilly ,fluffy frocks don't suit her body now.

I think that Madeleine is the most beautiful bride I've seen in a long time if ever. She simply looked stunning. She has always been pretty but lately she had started to look a bit weird. However, her makeup and hair were perfect yesterday. The lacey dress made her look the princess she is. I even like the ruffle though I usually *despise* them.

But I don't love the dress, I like it but it could have been better. It looked a big on her and the top part was not very well done. I did love how she wore her tiara with the flowers.

She used a second dress for the party which is the typical strapless ballgown video http://tv.aftonbladet.se/webbtv/nyheter/prinsessbrollop/article13657.ab

When I get married I would love to copy the children's choir part.  That was lovely and I've never seen that before.  Just lovely.  And it was touching to see the King so emotional.  Madeleine is such a natural beauty, especially since her hair is not bleached blonde.  Glad she she got rid of the deadweight and everything that came with him.


Title: Re: Princess Madeleine & Chris O'Neill's Wedding
Post by: Alexandrine on June 09, 2013, 02:29:22 pm
I also loved the whole ceremony short, nice and sweet. The music was also perfect, the start when Madeleine came, then the two songs who were less corny than Victoria's and the violin part when they left.

I also liked the speeches specially the bishop's.

Estelle was a bit de trop. I can understand that Madeleine wanted her there but as Estelle was always in the tv because of her place the attention shifted to her and not to the marrying couple. She also started crying in an important part of the ceremony.

Chris speach made everyone cry

Quote
But there is still released few details from the speech out.

Chris O'Neill gave last night a great speech to his bride that has gone directly into the hearts of all the guests. Chris delivered a speech that got everyone to start crying, writes golf star Jesper Parnevik, who was among the guests, on his Twitter.
Chris has in the speech, among other things talked about his love for his deceased father, and here he has said that his father would have loved Madeleine as high as Chris does.

I think Estelle was one of the best behaved kids there and she did manage to keep it together, quieting up right away and it was so adorable how Daniel was right there, holding her purse and the baby things and frankly Victoria is a wonderful mother if she has bonded so well that Estelle gets distressed that her mother is away. Seeing Daniel take Estelle near her during the speech was even better, just SO SWEET and he is such a doormat of a Daddy.

I believe Victoria did well to bring her well behaved daughter and not relegate her to the nursery with a sourpuss nanny. Estelle was a model kid for someone her age and it shows how Victoria just ADORES that little puddin' of a baby. how many infants carry it off that well? She sat at her little chair too and really, at that age, cute.

I admire how Daniel kept Estelle quieted and Victoria carried on despite her daughter getting fussy, Victoria read the speech like a pro and then went back into mommy mode. Why not bring her baby if the baby can handle it? Thankfully she was allowed to be a KID and live a little and she really pulled it off.

I'm never going to forget how fierce Estelle looked at the cameras, as if she already knew how much trouble the press will be in the future.

^ Agreed. I find the whole ceremony beautiful (decor, music, everything). I do think Madeleine was trying hard get controlled and dont cry.

I find so beautiful and romantic when was focused the couple  :flirt: holding hards!!!!! :flirt:

I think that Madeleine is the most beautiful bride I've seen in a long time if ever. She simply looked stunning. She has always been pretty but lately she had started to look a bit weird. However, her makeup and hair were perfect yesterday. The lacey dress made her look the princess she is. I even like the ruffle though I usually *despise* them.

But I don't love the dress, I like it but it could have been better. It looked a big on her and the top part was not very well done. I did love how she wore her tiara with the flowers.
IMO Madeleine was THE most beautiful royal bride I've seen, along Diana & Grace.

IMO Madeleine definitely is the THE most beautiful royal bride of this new era of royal brides (since late 1990s) and had the better dress & look (hair, make-up, the whole thing). I'm not big fan of Kate's & Charlene's dresses. IMO Armani could have done SO MUCH better. But I love what Charlene made with her hair & her veil too in her wedding. I find beautiful the wedding ceremony in Monaco, IMO she had one of better wedding ceremonies. Kate & William DEFINITELY HAD THE WORSE!! The decor of Abbey was HORRIBLE. In decor thing the Monaco wedding also was one of the best.

Her dress isnt most beautiful wedding dress that I've seen ever. But one of better in royals wedding, particularly this last decade. IMO Letizia, the Felipe'sisters, Mary, Charlene, Kate, Mathilde, Mette-merit had NOT THE WEDDING DRESS.

Many years ago I see an special of great french designers/maisons as YSL, Givenchy, Christian Lacroix et al, what also showed their creations of wedding dresses and were stunning.  :flirt: My favorites were from Yves Saint Laurent!! :flirt:

But what about Stephanie de Luxembourg's wedding dress?  Surely it goes along with Diana and Grace's.


Title: Re: Princess Madeleine & Chris O'Neill's Wedding
Post by: dianab on June 15, 2013, 06:38:32 am
Oh very much regal!!! No doubt!!! About this.

Her wedding dress was definitely more regal, with wow factor e elegance than all of this women who married future kings (that I cited above)! Only with the exception of Maxima (her dress tied with the Stephanie's dress), I really like her wedding dress. But I like more the dress of Madeleine than the Stephanie's dress.

 bignono IMO is an shame that Giorgio Armani DO NOT put MORE effort in his design for Charlene! :snob:

More an note on the wedding:
IMO is shame what mothers (Silvia & Eva) done to their faces, with botox, facelift et al. In certain moments could be seen how much proud they were feeling ... but their emotions/features were FROZEN!!

 :flirt: But Daniel was A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E, particularly when bride and groom were making their vows!! Many  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: to Victoria she know choice her consort, different of many others crown princes of Europe.

However, there is nothing about his paternal sisters.

One of them cried during the whole ceremony and the other two seem to be twins.

I still haven't be able to know who were the three teenagers in the first row next to his sisters.

I was wondering about the teens in the front row, they were so cute. They looked like they were in total gossip-girl mode, taking in everything. I thought they were young Aristocratic cousins for some reason. They just looked so comfortable with it all.

Post by: Alexandrine on June 15, 2013, 07:27:43 pm
^^ I suppose they are the daughters of his sisters. But I have not been able to found out from which ones.

There is a lot of confusion about his family in the press. I've read a couple of times that Eva has six children! She only has three.

No one has done a bit of research on the paternal line. I've read in the scandinavian mob that one of his aunts was a nun but nothing more.

Then there is the Charles-Eva connection which is super juicy but apart from the DM we haven't read more about that.

IIRC when Chris started be seen with Madeleine and reported as her boyfriend was some Swedish newspaper that said/reported that his mother was mistress of Charles in 1986.

Quote

Yes, I remember this story. But Sofia was seen with CP when he was visiting Madeleine in NY, I do think. I do think they were also seen in Paris. I remember an story that Chris would have moved to Florida because of his job and Madeleine was sad and then CP had visited her in NY and take Sofia together!

I believe many of teens girls in the front row may be his nieces - daughters of his sisters, some of girls I think had quite an resemblance to his sisters.

What you guys think of King in wedding??  :-

I think the King was more happy and at least (looks) content in wedding of Victoria, IIRC whole thing and how he was looking in Victoria's wedding. While could be seen how happy & proud was Silvia, Vcitoria, Estelle & Daniel too. Note at King during the part of vows. IMO the man WAS NOT demonstrating much emotion... Are the scandals keeping hitting him in Sweden? During this wedding appears me the things between him & Silvia are pretty bad :dontknow:

^The king had a face like he wanted to be anywhere than there but it's his usual face as he would prefer going partying with tarty woman.

Eva didn't "date" Charles, rumour has it they had an affair on 1986 and Eva had to leave once through a window so Diana wouldn't catch them.

Quote
His German mother, Eva, is a former girlfriend of Prince Charles, and made headlines in Britain in 2003 when she invited Charles and his then-mistress Camilla to the Amadeus festival, a high-society celebration of Mozart's music which she organises annually in Salzburg, Austria.

When the Prince arrived at the festival, Eva greeted him with a warm embrace and kiss - to the evident discomfort of Camilla, who would go on to marry Charles less than two years later.

Charles and Eva apparently met at a polo match and started an affair in 1986, when his marriage to Princess Diana was starting to break down.

One anecdote claimed that the couple were nearly caught in flagrante by Diana herself when she walked in to the changing room at the Guard's Polo Club in Windsor, where Charles and Eva were being intimate.

The story goes that Eva had to be 'bundled through a window' to stop the Princess discovering her husband's infidelity.

The Mail on Sunday even reported that Palace insiders had tried to encourage Charles to rekindle his relationship with Eva, in an attempt to stop Camilla joining the Royal Family.

St James's Palace denied that the Prince had had a romantic relationship with Eva, while she told the Mail that she invited him to Salzburg 'because I know he is a classical music lover'.

All what I have for says is: Scandinavian royals know as put together an beautiful, moving, elegant wedding!! Apart of Charles & Diana's grandiose wedding, the Windsors even put together an decent wedding? I admit I dont see the Sarah & Andrew'wedding, only few bits in docs. The Kate & William wedding was an UTTER FAILURE.

Estelle is hilarious, she looks like she's trying to run for it.   :tehe: Hahahaa so cute.

The Swedish Wedding made William and Kate's wedding seem so stiff and rigid. I liked this wedding much better.

Kate's only thought was to put trees in the church but the trees just looked oddly placed to me, I didn't get it.

Pss Madeleine put real thought into hers, having the lovely children walking in singing was stunning and so moving.  

I've been looking through some of the Scandanavian papers and they are all saying Sofia H. is next!  :think:

Get ready.  :tehe:

The wedding of Willy and Waity did fit the couple perfectly...it was devoid of emotion, of personality and of character.

A couple of years ago I attended a wedding in the UK from a friend of mine and when cleaning up mu house I found the program of the service and the music that was played (the wedding was in 2004) was almost the same as the music at the Westminster Abbey in 2011.  The hymns were the same, even some of the classical music pieces that Charles chose (because Katey doesn't know squad about classical music) was the same. All very boring and according to a format.

Wedding Prenup Contract Details

http://www.vg.no/rampelys/artikkel.php?artid=10111299

Quote

Chris O `Neill will not get the rights to some of Princess Madeleine's assets if the marriage ends in divorce.
Royal Family
Sweden
 
It is the Swedish newspaper Expressen that sits on Madeleine's marriage contract. According to documents the newspaper has had access to, all income and gains from the Princess private property be separate property, and can not be divided in the event of divorce. Inheritance, gifts, wills and estates sold, including income and interest rates of
   assets, will thus continue belonging to Princess Madeleine. Likewise, gifts, inheritance or wills awarded Chris O `Neill, part of his separate property. Attorney Anne Holst specializes in family law and think it is normal to enter into separate property in the case of large values . - It is normal to take separate property when one party takes the major assets into the marriage. When one enters the separate property, so keeping one assets outside the ordinary division called community property, she says to VG. 's documents, it also appears that all furniture and household items that the couple shares during marriage is marital property and therefore will be shared. The same applies to other income that the couple receives together.

Estelle was the second start of the show; she was amazingly well behaved and she really was adorable. That fretfulness when Victoria left her with Daniel showed that there is a serious bond between them.

When the kids came in singing, now THAT was something sweet and amazing. Simple designs with regal surroundings.

It's embarrassing to admit that I bought three mags about the wedding  :shy: but not Diez Minutos. I don't remember much about Lecturas, it was better than Semana but worse than Hola. Hola this time was the best although it's going downhill so for me it was a surprise. In the past I only bought Hola when there was a wedding but I saw in Victoria's wedding that Hola had a very limited coverage. The quality of the photos is also not the best though they are bigger than the rest.

On May 13th SVT will broadcast a documentary about the Swedish royal ladies' wedding dresses.
This is an abstract published by Svenskdam.
https://www.svenskdam.se/2018/04/prinsessan-madeleine-om-okanda-brollopsdramat-min-klanning-blev-klar-i-sista-sekunden/

"Madeleine unknown weddings panic: "Run around with the dress like little mice"

Now, Princess Madeleine says for the first time about the panic during the minutes before her "yes" to Chris. The  bells had already begun to play and the King was waiting on the doorstep. She got in her Valentino dress - and got a shock.

It is in the coming SVT program "Kungliga brudklänningar" that Princess Madeleine talks about the drama in the castle, minutes before the ceremony, June 8th, 2013. Guests were already in place in the Royal Chapel and she should have just slip in his carefully tested lace dress, created by the fashion king Valentino .

Everything was prepared, but no one had thought of wedding stress: Madeleine had plummeted in weight - in just a few days. Panic! Here she tells SVT Sara Bull:


- I'll just put on my wedding dress and I hear the church bells start ringing. And I'm standing in the dress and it is ... just too big. It's so big! It is huge! And I feel a little bit like Cinderella, Valentino had brought these Italian seamstresses that sewed the dress, and they were like 1.40 in length and ran around like little mice and sewed the dress. While my father stood on the doorstep  and was patient ... It was ok at the last second! But there was a little nervous when the bells rang and they still sewed  the dress"

Princess Madeleine also reveals that she went to Valentino's atelier in Paris for the tests. And they were somewhat special.

- He had all his little pug dogs with him, they walked on the dress and everywhere, and these poor Italian women pulled their hair when the dogs ran on the dress ... So it was a very enjoyable process! And the dress was good I think, it was very nice.-

But there are more weddings secrets that will be in the program. The designer Ida Sjöstedt, who did the Princess Sofia dress, revealing for example that Sofia actually had dreamed of a barefoot wedding on a beach. Something that Sofia also said:

- Well I had really imagined my wedding much easier ... But one should marry a prince and it's different.-

Work on the wedding dress took six months. Nothing had come out and Sofia went under the code name "Camilla" in Ida Sjöstedt studio. When it was time to take the wedding dress in the royal palace - it was taken in a bag from a DIY store and none of the photographter's noticed!

- There were a lot of photographers outside, but no one noticed anything- smiles Ida.

SVT Sarah Bull and Richard Collsiöö also interviewed Queen Silvia of the program, broadcast on Sunday, 13 May at 20:00. The Queen reveals that it was Queen Ingrid of Denmark who helped her choose the stylish ivory silk dress from Dior's sketches.

Dignified and beautiful. Queen Silvia said yes in French haute couture from Dior.

But Silvia said no to the extra long Dior-trailer  and instead chose the 3.6-meter-long silk slip as Princess Birgitta and Princess Désirée carried at their wedding.

Finally, also Crown Princess Victoria reveals the secret behind her acclaimed dress deisgned by Par Engsheden.

Victoria Par Engsheden-dress with his deeply circled back. Inside the seven-covered buttons conceals a zipper.

She had no dream dress, no clear picture of how she would look like. But she had a clear goal: A wedding dress that gave security.
- So that I could get a little bit of support of the dress in the great moment like it was for me.- "

[video of Madeleine talking about the dress] https://delivery.youplay.se/r/E1019


That finally explains why the dress fit so poorly, esp around the shoulders, crazy that she lost so much weight in the last few days before the wedding!! Wow!!
