Now, this is intriguing: http://www.msn.com/sv-se/...rken-av-kungen/ar-BBzMZi4

Christina Saliba, who has done PR for the court, has been fired because she failed to be discreet. She did PR for CP in connection with the design mess and for Sofia. One of Sofia's sisters works for her.
I hope this story spills. I think she's likely to be one of Sofia's dirty people.

This is certainly interesting. Saliba was fired by the court more than a year ago, but CP & S still privately hire her to do PR for them, as do Bernadotte & Kylberg. IIRC, Sofia was seen having lunch with her just a few months ago.

Even more interesting is how the article mentions that Saliba likes to play dirty. It makes me wonder if she is the one behind the media campaign against Madeleine & Chris?

She's also the person who helped CP with his wedding speech. And she was involved in the whitewashing of Snakey too...

Wow, firstly why do CP and Sofia need their own PR person? The Court has a communications department to call on so why use somebody else, who no doubt charges extreme amounts? Equally who pays the bill for her? Secondly, even if you do need to hire your own PR person (delusions of grandeur to one side) why hire someone who has been fired from the Royal Court for being unprofessional?

These two really are a law unto themselves

Thought this was interesting. TheRoyalsandI who runs the Swedish fashion site calculated the cost of new clothes so far for 2017.  Madeleine's come in at about $10,000.  Victoria's come in at $9672.52.  And Sofia's are estimated at $21,000.

But somehow they will paint Maddie as the one wasting taxpayer money, I'd say some if not all of Madde's clothes was covered by Chris, I mean she only gets wardrobe budget if she works.

I can imagine that dressing trash to appear as a princess is quite an excessively expensive proposition.  I hope Sweden has saved her pennies for this endeavor  Angel

EDIT:  I am having writer's remorse for what I wrote - Sweden does not deserve such a callous comment, nor does it deserve to have such poor representation.

I would love to see who pays for Snakey's clothes. Does her business have anything to do with it...?  Thinking

http://www.allabolag.se/5590427240/verksamhet

"The company's operations is to conduct consulting in leadership and business development, sales in the textile and clothing industry, management of movable and immovable property and related business."

Does this mean she will sell her old clothes through her company or make arrangements to wear someone's clothing for payment? Something like "I sold my old clothes and donated the money to charity" or "I didn't actually use any money for my clothing". She might actually even be earning money by wearing designer clothes.

I still remember those old photos taken at PP office when Snakey and her sister had one in Stockholm. All those clothes racks full of designer clothing. I was wondering how they could afford such frocks but I guess there was some sort of clever arrangement there. It looked so out of place at a charity office that was dealing with children in SA.

I suspect she uses as much of the King's money as possible and when there's not left begs steals or borrows whatever else she wants. Given most z list celebrities get paid to wear clothes from certain labels/shops or get free clothes from them for events I can't see Sofia not doing this.

WTF?  How in the hell is this even allowed?  This is not okay.  Not at all.  I hope the taxpayers protest this loudly. 

$21,000 and she still looks like trash?  The taxpayers need a refund.  They're not getting their money's worth.  It's not like she can resell these things-not without them being disinfected first.

I'm guessing a huge part of Sofia's costs are the gowns she wore. She has worn two new gowns custom made by couture designers. Madeleine has worn 1 gown which was new but off the rack. Victoria wore 1 gown but it was a gown she's worn before.

She should take that 21k and get those nasty teeth fixed, that ginormous wart removed, and the neck tattoo removed (like the court allegedly told her to do right before the wedding).  She needs to stop spending money on designer clothes.  She still looks trashy and unprofessional.  They're simply not worth the cost.

I know this was brought up in Sofia's thread in the past so I thought I'd post it here.  The Court updated the calendar, and it added the celebrations for the 80th birthday of the King and Queen of Norway to the calendar.  The events will take place on May 9th and 10th in Oslo.  Attending will be the King, Queen, Crown Princess, Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip, and Princess Sofia.

live from Stockholm, the royal family makes its appearance at 1:15

There will be a gun salute at 13:00
Then the band of the Armed Forces will play, and then the mounted band of the Royal Life Guards, followed by a changing of the guards ceremony of a squadron from the mounted cavalry

We are just seeing too much of S and CP ... not that we want to see them at all  Whistle but they are treated as if they are a crown prince couple as well. Where is the distinction?

I don't care much for them although im more neutral towards CP  than Sofia, but to be fair they are not getting any crown prince couple treatment for instance Victoria's birthday is celebrated publicly every year, only round birthdays are public celebrations for other (blood) members of the royal house
when it comes to the kings birthday it is expected that his children attend, he may be the king but I guess to them he is first and foremost dad, re Norway a large turnout was expected from the SRF the Norwegian and Swedes are very close friends all siblings attended Haakon and ML's weddings in turn they went to theirs when the time came, in 2007 all the royal family attended Harald's 70th, even Desiree and Christina went to Oslo and they had lost their HRH's on marriage, these things then become family events.
Victoria does more engagements than CP, CP does about as much as Daniel but then he has more patronages than him, and he is involved in the military, and to be honest he should be seen out and about he's a blood Prince of Sweden

Watching the birthday festivities. I see that Vic & Oscar & Dan and Sil & Estelle are on the balcony/window with Snakey. She keeps shoving her face forward like she's the main character and smiling that toothy grin. I don't see CP but perhaps he's in the courtyard with CG.

Here's a quick screenshot of Snakey on the balcony.

Dan is whispering into Snakey's ear all the time. I'm starting to dislike him.  Snare
