- The Speaker of Parliament, Per Westerberg, and three vice-speakers
- Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt and his wife Filippa Reinfeldt
- Foreign Minister (and former Prime Minister) Carl Bildt and his wife Anna Maria Corrazza Bildt
- The other members of the government and four state secretaries
- The leaders of two of the three opposition parties (the third, Lars Ohly, leader of the Left Party and a former communist, declined his invitation because of his republican views)
- The parliamentary leaders of all parties in Parliament (including the Left Party)
- The leaders and the deputy leaders of the parliamentary committees
- Three former speakers of parliament
- Former PM Göran Persson and his wife Anitra Steen (the other former PMs – Torbjörn Fälldin, Ola Ullsten and Ingvar Carlsson – will not be attending)
- The journalist Susanna Popova, who is writing the official book on the wedding
- The documentary maker Gregor Nowinski, who made the recent six-part documentary “The Bernadotte Family”
- Solfrid Söderlind, managing director of the National Museum and in charge of the coming exhibition on Carl XIV Johan, Napoléon I and Alexander I
- The journalist Herman Lindqvist, who claims to be the court historian
- Professor Dick Harrison, who tutors Daniel Westling in history
- Professor Tommy Möller, who has been tutoring the Crown Princess in political science
- The county governors and a whole bunch of other officials, including the Archbishop, Anders Wejryd, which is quite obvious given that he is the one who will conduct the service
- Friends of the King and Queen
- Friends of the bride and groom
- Representatives of various institutions, organisations, museums, academies, business, the Wallenberg family, religions and embassies as well as editors-in-chief of leading newspapers and TV companies and reporting journalists.

No members of the Royal Court are included in the list, but can be counted on to come out in force, headed by the Marshal of the Realm, Svante Lindqvist, and the Mistress of the Robes, Countess Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister.

The official lists earlier today stated that the King of Spain and the Crown Princess of Japan will also be attending, but this has now been corrected. A bit strangely Nathalie Ellis, who recently broke up with the bride’s cousin Gustaf Magnuson, is listed as attending the dinner but not the actual wedding – they have probably just forgotten to remove her.
