Königliche Liebe
Frischer Wind für Schwedens Monarchie

Love or reasons of state - this question puts the Swedish monarchy to the test again and again. Prince Carl Philip has just married the ex-model Sofia Hellqvist. For a long time Sofia was controversial in Sweden because of her past, but Carl Philip stood by her.

Sweden's royals and their civil spouses - the next chapter in a royal success story. King Carl Gustaf himself paved the way when he took the German Olympic hostess Silvia Sommerlath as his wife in 1976. It is also impossible to imagine the royal family without the ill-matched husbands of Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine. In his affair of the heart, Carl Philip has now also created facts and found support among his family, of all people. His bride Sofia became a project on which the royal family and the royal house worked together to prepare the young woman for being a princess and to win the goodwill of the public.
