Sofia of Sweden: Her marriage to Carl Philip, a majestic and unforgettable ceremony in photos

Let’s not lie to each other. Many women have, in their earliest childhood, dreamed of a princess wedding. For most, it didn’t come true, or at least not the way they had imagined. For others, the wish has been granted. For Kate Middleton first. After several years of relationship with Prince William, the young woman officially became his wife in 2011. Sublime in a white dress signed Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, trailing as big as mouths when they discovered Pippa, the sister of the bride, the Duchess of Cambridge finally touched what she had been hoping for for a long time: to officially enter the life of her prince. Waity Katy, as she was nicknamed at the time, was no more. Four years later, it was Sweden’s turn to ring the bells!

After four years of relationship with model Sofia Hellqvist, Prince Carl Philip finally decides to ask her to marry. The engagement was announced in June 2014, a year before the wedding. It was not until June 13, 2015 that the two lovers sealed their destiny before God, their family and the crowd who had come to cheer them on for one of the most beautiful days of their lives!

Sofia had called on the Swedish designer Ida Sjöstedt for her splendid dress, reminiscent of the one worn by the Duchess of Cambridge with its long lace sleeves, her veil, her tiara and her discreet V-neck. Far from being intimidated, the young bride greeted the crowd, under the tender eyes of her husband, happy to finally know that her beauty was with him for the rest of her life. After leaving the church hand in hand, Sofia Hellqvist and Prince Carl-Philip took their place aboard a horse-drawn carriage, from which they could appreciate the many expressions of affection from a whole people gathered for this day to mark. of a white stone in the history of the country’s monarchy.

Still like their British counterparts four years earlier, Carl-Philip and his wife made an appearance on the balcony of the palace, the scene of their fiery kisses, the first of their married life, before a well-deserved party! Seven years later, love is in good shape, crowned by the births of their three children: Alexander, 6 years old, Gabriel, 4 years old and Julian, 1 year old. What better than boys to make their princess mommy feel like a queen?
