Today, Sweden’s Princess Madeleine (younger sister of our Crown Princess Victoria) married American financier Chris O’Neill.
The ceremony was held in the Royal Castle church in the centre of Stockholm.

It was a perfect day for a fairy-tale wedding. After a ride in horse-drawn open carriage through town, the newly-wed couple as well as their invited guests went on by boat to…
… Drottningholm palace (also in Stockholm, residence of our present King and Queen, and where the Princess grew up) where the private wedding party will still be going on as I write this.
You’ll no doubt be able to find more info and better quality photos by a simple Google search, if you’re interested… These, obviously, I just snapped off my TV screen!
Chris O’Neill has dual British-American citizenship but lives in New York. Princess Madeleine also works in New York, for the World Childhood Foundation. The princess will still be a princess after the wedding, but her husband will not be a prince but will remain Mr O’Neill (unlike brother-in-law Daniel who did become a prince when he married crown princess Victoria three years ago. Here are links to my blog posts about that back then:
