Hej hej! It's royal wedding time, y'all. This is Sofia Hellqvist, she married Prince Carl Philip, Duke of Värmland, on June 13. Carl Philip is the Prince of Sweden btw.

Princess Madeleine aka Prince Carl Philip's little sister positively glowed with her husband, Christopher O'Neill, and daughter Princess Leonore.

She's expecting her second child any day now.


There was this amazing moment between Princess Mary of Denmark, and Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway.

Do you think they do a royal scandinavian fist bump whenever they're in the same room with each other?


Here are some facts about the big day:

- The bride wore a dress by Swedish designer Ida Sjöstedt.

- Sofia's tiara was a gift from King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia.

- The bride walked down the aisle to Enya's "Athair ar Neamh."

- When the couple said their "Ja's" aka their "I do's," you could hear cheers from the crowd outside, which caused the cathedral to break out in laughter.

- Princess Estelle, the daughter of Crown Princess Victoria, was a flower girl.

- DJ Avicii and group Icona Pop are supposed to perform at the reception.

- Sofia will now be known as HRH Princess Sofia, Duchess of Värmland.

And of course, the royal couple had to take an iconic carriage ride to wave to all the commoners.

Royalty, amirite?
