A beautiful song for a future Queen

The summer of 2010 will be remembered as the Wedding-summer in Sweden. That's because our Crown Princess Victoria married her Daniel Westling. In the church there were two popular swedish artists singing a song which was composed for this occasion. Maybe you remember the song Hooked on a feeling from 1974. It was a young Björn Skifs who did a cover of that song than.

I don't know what you think about monarchy but I think that Victoria is a very good person representing Sweden because, as we say in Sweden, she stands with both feet on the ground. She doesn't feel like a rich spoiled person even if she has grown up as a princess.

I usually don't write about designing cloths, there are so many others doing that much better, but this is an exception. I really loved her wedding dress, it was so beautiful even if it was simple and clean. The designer was Pär Engsheden.

"She stands with both feet on the ground." What a great saying!

Thank you for stopping by my blog - I love hearing from people from around the globe! I remember reading about Princess Victoria this summer and looking at the many photos of her gown and the wedding itself. Beautiful! It's good to hear that she's very down to earth and in touch with reality, even though she's royalty. :)

Kind regards,

Jen

Thank you all for your comments. I forgot to tell you the name of the female singer, Agnes. She participated in Swedish Idol some years ago and became very popular here.
