Sweden’s Prince Carl Philip weds Former Glamour Model – Sofia Hellqvist
Sweden’s Prince Carl Philip got married to a former reality-TV star and glamour model – Sofia Hellqvist in a lavish ceremony in the chapel at Stockholm’s Royal Palace. About 550 guests attended the ceremony, many of them royals, including Princess Takamado of Japan and Britain’s Prince Edward.
Prince Carl, 36, is third in line to the throne behind his elder sister Princess Victoria and her daughter, Princess Estelle. Princess Sofia, 30, is a former glamour model, who once posed topless while clutching a snake to preserve her modesty. She also worked as a yoga instructor before helping to set up a charity. It is the first time a Swedish commoner has become a princess of Sweden in centuries.
