Royal Weddings!

Last week was the big royal wedding of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, and I've been having so much fun looking at the pics! I don't know a huge amount about the various European royals if they're not British (since I don't often read Hello! magazine; I used to read Royalty until my local Barnes & Noble quit carrying it), but I loved this romantic story and the gorgeous, elegant gown (plus that tiara! Originally made in Paris for Empress Josephine...)

And the princess in the pink is Infanta Elena of Spain. I am totally going to wear something like that at RWA next year!

I think the story is so sweet. Have you ever read Desiree Amanda? It's the story of how Napoleon's first love and one of his general's became King and Queen of Sweden. They are the ancestors of Princess Victoria. And how cute is her brother? I've always thought it was awesome that they made it law that the first born gets to be the monarch, regardless of sex.
