THE royal wedding of the summer
THE royal wedding of the summer will be between Sofia Hellqvist and Sweden’s Prince Carl Philip on June 13.
The pair’s being hailed as more exciting than Prince William and Kate Middleton, New York Post reports. After all, Hellqvist, 30, has posed in a bikini — with a python, no less — for a magazine called Slitz.
She’s also been on a Swedish reality show, and was a yoga instructor before becoming a princess.
Prince Carl Philip, meanwhile, was seen as one of Europe’s most beloved bachelors before he hooked up with Ms Hellqvist in 2010. The second child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden loves fast cars and looks like he was born to wear a tux.
