If I should ever get married, I would like to do it in style. I would have four priests, a five meter long train, 18 fighter planes flying in formation, a three meter high wedding cake, 1200 guests (all royals, politicians and divinities) plus of course half a million or so of subje…er, people celebrating on the streets. My bridesmaids would all be little princesses, the king would make a speech, my diadem would have been a gift from Napoleon to Josephine and, as the guests partied on until the early hours, I would sneak out through a secret passage and fly off in a private jet. And yeah, my husband would be there too, or whatever.
Swedish royal wedding July 19, 2010. Now that’s what I’m talking about.
