Monogramme for Princess Madeleine and Christopher O’Neill
The Swedish royal court today published the monogramme for Princess Madeleine and Christopher O’Neill which has been designed by Vladimir A. Sagerlund ahead of their wedding on 8 June. The double monogramme shows their initials M and C surmounted by a ducal crown.
On Sunday the banns of marriage will be read during a service in the Palace Church in Stockholm, followed by a reception at the Royal Palace. In Sweden this is a tradition which is accorded a greater significance than in many other countries (although it is no longer obligatory since 1973) and it is often the occasion for the presentation of the wedding gifts.
