thank you for the live feed. The wedding isn't being covered in the US...and we sure could use a little glamor. Best wishes to the couple.

I am looking forward to watching the wedding! We'll probably see a little on TV via SKY news.

Best wishes to Princess Victoria and Daniel. I lived in Sweden as a student--jag var barnvakt och hushollsersha--jatte kul. I alla fall, we will not be seeing this fabulous wedding on TV in the United States. Thank you so much for broadcasting this live coverage.

For those of you who want to see the wedding live in America go to:

svtplay.se. Then click the site that says "Live for viewers outside the Nordic region" I watch the entire wedding from start to finish and Victoria made the most beautiful bride. She is just so serene and beautiful. She even gave at wink for the cameras when she was standing at the altar after taking her vows.

Hope this helps those of you who want to see the wedding. SVT is a Danish station (Ithink) and it did say that the wedding could be viewed for up to 30 days after the wedding...also go to "billedbladet.com", it's a Danish magazine that is following the wedding.

When King Carl Gustaf married Queen Silvia, my feisty grandmother made me carry a ladder through Stockholm, with aching arms, all the way from Gärdet to just outside Nordiska Kompaniet. Then Farmor (grandmother) nimbly climbed to the top, kindly letting me onto the bottom rung. She was a fierce royalist and I her faithful disciple. I wish I had been able to pop over from America today to stand in the streets in her stead... that's where she would have been... but she died at 101 a few years ago.
