Welcome to the Royal family, Sofia Hellqvist. Sweden’s Prince Carl Philip, 36, wed the former topless model and reality star on June 13 in Stockholm in front of royals around the world. Sofia, 30, stunned in a gorgeous, curve-hugging gown and looked beautiful for the day she officially became Princess Sofia of Sweden, Duchess of Värmland.
Here comes the beaming bride! Sofia and Carl couldn’t keep their smiling eyes off of each other as they said their “I do’s” in Sweden’s capital. Looking breathtaking on her big day, Sofia, who famously posed topless while clutching a snake, wore a gown created by Swedish designer Ida Sjostedt. The dress, which was three shades of white, featured delicate lace on the sleeves, and matched perfectly with the embroidered veil and diamond-studded tiara. So pretty!
Meanwhile, the Prince, who is third in line to the Swedish throne behind his sister, Princess Victoria and her daughter Princess Estelle, looked dapper as he lovingly took Sofia’s hand in marriage. The ceremony itself was a royal-studded event with Victoria and Estelle in attendance, as well as Prince Philip‘s parents, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia,Queen Sonja of Norway and her son, and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, according to the Daily Mail.
The couple rang in their ceremony with specially picked songs, “Fix You” by Coldplay and “Umbrella” by Rihanna, according to People. (Coolest wedding ever?!) They reportedly left the church while a gospel choir sang “Joyful, Joyful” based on Beethoven‘s Symphony No. 9. So beautiful! After the ceremony, there was a 21-shot salute where thousands of well-wishers came to the streets of Sweden to celebrate.
Congrats to the Prince and Princess on their marriage!
