It was so cool how we and the people of other forums, especially the Royalforums, enjoyed it!

That and over halve a million people that had taken to the streets of beautifull Stockholm,
plus the tens of millions that watched the wedding on their pc and/or tv,or both...
I know that in The Netherlands alone 4.7 million people watched,as it sort of blended in after
the football game The Netherlands - Japan at the WC in SA.(Which we won with a mere 1 - 0....).. :P.. ;D

It was the "Mother of all Royal Weddings" as far as coverage was concerned,and about everything else too
but that is maybe due,not only to the overwhelming and gracious gesture by the Bridal Couple that allowed
coverage so up close,and for soo long,but the sense as if all of us were actually present because of that,and all
we did miss was a real piece of that fantastic weddingcake,other then that,we had everything,beyond expectations
for all of us on regardless which Board or Forum,(not to mention the over 10.000 that followed this specifiv thread alone)
 one followed all.It was One Big Joy for all,and that was soo special,I would love for it to linger on for a long long time.

It was a lovely wedding I saw some preparations when my parents and I went in to get my late present and I saw the whole thing on TV even if I wished now I would have been there standing salute the Crown Princess and the Prince when they come down on there way to Galliervarvet. Well it is easy to regret it now and I think our Swedish scout was lovely standing there saluting them as they arrived saying this is I myself am a scout. Even all the people that was helping made a really great job and everything was so lovely and happy.
May our Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel have a joyful and wonderful life.
Länge leve vår Kronprinsessa och Daniel Westling.

A great mix of regalness and the familial. You can sense the genuine feeling behind the largeness of the day.

Thanks for the info, Douglas. So not the one her great-grandmother used but it is the one seen in photos of GDss Marie & Prince Wilhelm.

Yes, if the photo of the Vasaorden barge is after 1923, it's the same one that was used today.  The royal barge receives a lot of TLC and is now over 85 years old. 

OK, I can't read. LOL You did say it was destroyed in a fire in 1921. I don't know what I was thinking.  :-X Obviously not used for Maria & William either.

Yes, a great feeling of oneness here on the thread yesterday. It was great to share that with other members. It's something unique and special and which will come around only once in a very long while. All those who participated were very fortunate.

In love with her Prince... which title did he get?
So strange to see how all the former Royal houses become more or less ordinary.... Olimpic Games Hostess as Queen and Fitness Trainer as Prince consort.......

yes,Thomas, it`s weird for me that a personal fitness trainer suddely becomes prince consort. i think that the whole idea of royalty is about being different from ordinary citizens of a given country. they are royal because of their birth and ubringing. a former fitness instructor is like me or any other ordinary citizen. when an olimpic games hostess (silvia sommerlath ,the future queen of sweden) or the owner of fitness clubs suddenly become royal i feel confused. i feel that  genuine royal blood is somehow dissolved by the new blood. if we follow this assumption we can say that crown princess victoria is only 1/2 royal, while her prospective children will be only 1/8 royal. so what is the sense of having a royal house whose blood is not royal at all? being royal is being somehow superior,superior i a sense of birth and upbringig.and all of sudden taxpayers have to finance lavish lifestyle of commoners or halfcommoners. mette marit of norway is a plain girl, former single mother whose exboyfried was implicated in a crime. if she was an ordinary citizen i wouldn`t even pay attention to these details but bearing in mind WHAT ROLE she plays as well as her future as queen consort i am somewhat shocked.i know that modern royal houses REIGN but DON`T RULE but still i can`t accept these rapidly changing standars

Wow! All I wanted to do was congratulate the newlyweds on a beautiful day, regardless of anyone's background and two lectures follow my comment disparaging the commoner spouses of current royalty. Nice.

The first Bernadotte, Jean Baptiste, was a commoner, too. A revolutionary from France. So the whole dynasty is pretty much a mix of royal blood and commener blood.
I think for the Swedish people it´s a right choice. Because they want a royal house, which is down-to-earth.

I think he is now a Duke (not bad for a former personal trainer) he looks like a dork to me.  But at least she is healthy and looking radiant.  :-)
Beautiful faithful Nargony.
