Her Royal Highness, Princess Madeleine of Sweden, one of my personal favourites then to marry Prince William of Wales (now the Duke of Cambridge), will finally walk-down-the-aisle with her American financier boyfriend, Christopher O'Neil, on June 8, 2013 at the Royal Palace Chapel in Stockholm.

The ceremony might not a grand royal affair in Europe but will surely attract royal watchers around the world and royal guests will add glamour and sophistication to the event.

The princess, 4th in line of succession to the Swedish throne, is the youngest child of King Carl XVI Gustav of Sweden and his German wife, Queen Sylvia. Madeleine already provided the public with some hints on how her wedding would look like. In an interview, she revealed her wedding will be an afternoon ceremony with a lavish palace reception and guests with no more than 500. So far the royal guests confirmed to be attending are the Earl and Countess of Wessex, who had been attending royal weddings in Europe for the past years to represent the Queen, the Prince and Princess of Asturias, Felipe and Letezia, Prince Frederick of Denmark and wife Princess Mary.

Princess Madeleine currently holds the title Duchess of Halsingland and Gastrikland but it is not known whether her future husband will be given a royal title and whether their future children will earn their places in the line of succession to the Swedish throne.

It is an interesting note to share that the Princess had been engaged in 2009 to a Swedish lawyer, Jonas Bergstrom, but months after the announcement of their official engagement, the two broke up due to some issues of infidelity on the side of Madeleine's fiance prompting her to move to New York after the wedding of her older sister, Crown Princess Victoria in 2010, to forget the heartache she suffered from the breakdown of her almost one decade romantic relationship. A year later she met O'Neil.

Christopher O'Neil despite his status of being commoner was born from a wealthy family. He has a British blood and holds a dual American and British citizenship. He studied at a boarding school in Switzerland and obtained a degree in International Relations from Boston University and earned a masters degree in Business at the Columbia Business School in New York.
