A svéd királyi esküvő
The wedding of Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling (now Prince Daniel of Sweden, Duke of Västergötland) yesterday, on 19 June 2010, was definitely the greatest event I have seen since I live here in Stockholm!
Tegnap, 2010. június 19-én volt Svédország trónörökösnőjének (egyes fordításokban koronahercegnőjének), Victoriának és Daniel Westlingnek (mostantól Daniel Svéd Hercegnek, Västergötland Hercegének) esküvője. Kétségtelenül a legnagyszerűbb esemény, amióta Stockholmban élek!
“The Best Summer Place” – says the Kulturhuset (“House of Culture”), the big social, cultural and community center in the middle of the city
Waiting at Sergels Torg
Gotta put your crowns on for this big day!
Somebody’s gotta oversee the whole operation. They sure had a great view!
Crowded Kungstradgarden, people watching the wedding ceremony
That’s how much we could see on the screens (And that’s how much I could conceal the unsightly heads in the background)

Some of the cutest moments
Everybody is excited, on the ground, on the water and in the air…

The Crown Princess and her now royal husband should live forever after, like in the fairy tales – and let’s see who is next to marry: her sister Madeleine or brother Philip?
