Wedding of H.R.H. Princess Madeleine

On Saturday, the wedding of HRH Princess Madeleine and Mr. Christopher O’Neill took place in the Royal Chapel at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. It was a beautiful day and the bride and the groom looked radiant with happiness. The young Princess Estelle, future heiress to the throne, put on an exemplary performance despite her young age. She even had her own miniature chair in the Chapel.

The wedding banquet took place at Drottningholm Palace with the King and Queen as hosts. The Drottningholm Palace is the official home of the King and and the Queen and is beautifully situated on Lake Mälaren. The Princess and her consort travelled on one of Stockholm’s traditional steam ships from the centre of Stockholm to Drottningholm. I wish the couple all the best for the future and would also like to congratulate the Princess on her birthday today.
