What Song Did the Gays Dance to at Sweden’s Royal Wedding?

Peter Jöback, a singer, and Oscar Nilsso, a fitness instructor, danced together at the wedding of Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria, who married Daniel Westing, a commoner (!). At last, the caste system that celebrates the color purple is getting in touch with its roots.

    Wasn’t there some story about a paper in Sweden catching a prince and his friends licking jam off each other? Was it this prince?

    Queerty, what’s with the exclamation point re the groom being a commoner? The bride’s mother was a commoner when she married the current king. Her royal aunts also married mere “misters.” In fact the whole family has numerous commoners married in. Do some research, okay?

    I love the Swedish Royals! (especially Carl Phillip!!)

    They’re down-to-earth, but still very elegant.

    If anyone’s interested, they could watch the entire ceremony here:

    I hope Victoria and Daniel have a wonderful and lasting marriage.

    Daniel has such a nerdy hotness to him!

    BTW, It’s Westling, not Westing. :)

    How does one say “¡Viva la República!” in Swedish? :P

    I watched the wedding live and it was nice to see Peter Jöback dancing with his boyfriend amidst all the royals and upper-class folk in such a conservative country (oh yes, you thought Sweden was a progressive country… try living here for a while… it’s a VERY conservative society at heart, with a few [very few] liberal pieces of frosting decorating it).
