Of course it doesn't matter, lol.  It's just a bit of harmless fluff!

Queen Silvia seems like a wonderful and genuine person, and Sweden is lucky to have a queen they adore.

my mind is leaving me and i can't exactly remember who it was about, but i read in a royalty book that queen elizabeth was hoping to marry princess anne to some prince (i don't remember who so this might be off topic cause he might not be scandanavian). the prince married someone else and the whole british family boycoted his wedding. anyone else know anything about this?

Actually, the Prince of Wales said nothing of the sort.
he does suffer at times from foot in mouth disease - but he certainly did not make such comments about the Swedish royal family.  It is unlikely that invitations were extended to most royal families because Charles' wedding was not a state occasion.  The families are not close - it would have been more likely that Lord and Lady Brabourne would have attended the king's birthday celebrations as they have a closer relationship.


The only reason I can think of, is that a few years ago, Prince Charles gave an interview and he commented that the Swedish royal family, specially the pricesses "do not lead a royal life" meaning that they openely live with their boyfriends, etc.  Apparently this comment upset King Gustav and Queen Sylvia, and they did not even gave an excuse, officially, why they would not attend Prince Cahrles wedding.

It was unlikely that the queen would have wanted Anne to marry a prince.  If you read something like that, you read it wrong.

There were press rumors about Anne and Harald and Alexandra of Kent and Harald and Irene of Greece and harald ... but he was involved with Sonja for ten years before they married.  No one from the British royal family attended their wedding because Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent had died the day before (or thereabouts).  Anne is a godmother to Crown Prince Haakon.

my mind is leaving me and i can't exactly remember who it was about, but i read in a royalty book that queen elizabeth was hoping to marry princess anne to some prince (i don't remember who so this might be off topic cause he might not be scandanavian). the prince married someone else and the whole british family boycoted his wedding. anyone else know anything about this?
