Another Royal Wedding Is Coming – and It Might Outshine Will and Kate's
Swedish Prince Carl Phillip will tie the knot with model Sofia Hellqvist in June
When it comes to beautiful aristocrats, the British monarchy is no competition for the Swedes!
The Swedish royal family is preparing for the upcoming nuptials of Prince Carl Philip to former model Sofia Hellqvist on June 13, and based on how good the prince looks in a suit, we’re already anxious for wedding pictures!
The beautiful couple gathered with the rest of the (incredibly attractive) royal family at Stockholm’s Royal Chapel on Sunday to participate in a traditional ceremonial reading of the banns of marriage. The ceremony serves as the official announcement that the couple intends to wed.
Of course, this isn’t exactly new news – the couple announced their wedding date last October. But now they’ve completed the traditional method.
Carl Philip, 36, who is third in line to the throne, is the last of his siblings to get married, and was known for his bachelor ways prior to meeting Hellqvist in 2009.

Hellqvist, who found fame on reality show Paradise Hotel, kept it classy for the ceremony, wearing a fitted white skirt and jacket with a black fascinator. The prince looked handsome in a sleek black suit, with a navy blue tie.
Carl Philip’s mother and father, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden, as well as his sisters, Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeline. Hellqvist’s family was also in attendance for the affair.
The ceremony also served to announce Hellqvist’s official title once the couple ties the knot in a few short weeks – HRH Princess Sofia.
