Sweden's Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist Share Special Wedding Gift Request
Wed 13-05-2015

Sweden's Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist's wedding will be in June, and the couple have specified exactly what they would like for their special day.

Carl Philip and Sofia have kindly requested that any gifts be made in the form of a charitable donation to the Prince Couple's Foundation, which they have set up specifically for the wedding. The foundation aims to promote and support children and youth in care and educational settings, according to the palace's official website.

The statement also noted that any other gifts may be deposited with "Post and Logistik" at the Royal Palace of Stockholm, by Friday June 12 – the day before their royal wedding.

In celebration of the imminent nuptials, the palace have also released new photos of the bride and groom-to-be. The images show the beautiful couple looking relaxed and completely at ease, with just about a month to go before they tie the knot. Sofia, 30, wore an elegant dovetail grey silk dress that showed off her svelte figure, while Carl Philip, 35, looked dapper in a dark pinstripe suit and blue tie.
