Swedish Prince Carl Philip tying the knot with ex-reality starlet and model Sofia Hellqvist


STOCKHOLM — The only son of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia is to marry his Swedish fiancee in a lavish ceremony in Stockholm.

Prince Carl Philip and the former reality starlet and model Sofia Hellqvist, 30, are to tie the knot Saturday at the Royal Palace chapel before five European queens, a Japanese princess and dozens of other blue-blooded guests. The couple engaged in June 2014.

Carl Philip, 36, is third in line to the throne behind his elder sister, Crown Princess Victoria, and her 3-year-old daughter, Princess Estelle. Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet reported that the couple threw a pre-wedding dinner party for 270 guests Friday evening at an underground bunker formerly inhabited by the Swedish military and now used to stage exhibitions.
