royal guests at Victoria's wedding

Swedish newspapers today published a list of royals alleged to be invited to Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden's wedding festivities, including a concert that will be held the night before the wedding.
The journalist have not done their homework because their lists include Prince Hamzah and Princess Noor of Jordan and Prince Kyril and Princess Rosario of Bulgaria. Hamzah and Noor were divorced in September 2009, and Kyril and Rosario have been separated for more than a year.

The list also includes the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, Princes William and Harry of Wales and the Earl and Countess of Wessex. The British rarely send large contingents to other royal weddings, so such a turnout is unlikely.
Although William and Harry are closest in age to Crown Princess Victoria, they are unlikely to attend. The Prince of Wales will probably go as he is the heir apparent. The Earl and Countess of Wessex have attended other royal weddings (and are friends with Prince Joachim of Denmark). It would be a real surprise if William and or Harry attended the wedding as they have had very limited contact with other European royals.

Glad to have found you here, Marlene. Right on. The article about the wedding guests was sloppy, indeed. Best from a Maine admirer, aka "Queenie.". Just joined the site, hesitantly. I don't blog but am looking forward to all the updated entries here.
