Princess Sofia at sustainability conference in Båstad

Can you believe it’s August already? This year has flown by so fast. It feels like only a few weeks ago when Princess Sofia announced her pregnancy, so whenever I see her I forget how far along she is. She’s due in September, but it still feels like April to me, so I was surprised by how pregnant she looks in these photos from August 2, even though I shouldn’t have been. Anyway, here’s a Sofia update. She attended the Sustainability and Future Seminar “A Sustainable Tomorrow” on August 2.

Happy Easter Sunday to those who celebrate, and Happy April 5 to those who do not!

For now, this week’s Royal Round Up has got a Kate Middleton sighing; all the Swedes, including Crown Princess Victoria, Sofia Hellqvist, Princess Madeleine, Princess Estelle, Princess Leonore, and all the guys; Princess Charlene; Queen Maxima; and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Prince Carl Philip is engaged to Sofia Hellqvist

The news of Prince Carl Philip of Sweden’s engagement to Sofia Hellqvist came out last Friday, late in the day.  I would have covered it, but the death of my dog and my subsequent depression took precedence.  Anyway, I’m covering it now ahead of an appearance by Kate Middleton later today.  So, Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist are engaged, and planning a wedding for summer 2015.  Yay?  I guess congrats to them, but my sympathies to the Swedes who will now have a former nude model/reality TV star as a representative of their country.  I mean, I know we have some crappy representatives here in the US, but at least we (for the most part) get to vote them out when they do stupid stuff.  Of the engagement, Carl Philip said, “I have the incredible honor of being engaged to this fantastic girl.”  And Sofia said, “Carl Philip is the most humble person I have ever met, which is what made me fall for him in the beginning.  He has one of the most beautiful hearts, he is very warm.”
