The Swedish Royal Wedding

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!

Somebody’s gotta oversee the whole operation. They sure had a great view!

That’s how much we could see on the screens (And that’s how much I could conceal the unsightly heads in the background)

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?
