Many of you may have noticed that Sweden - and especially Stockholm - has been quite focused on the royal wedding lately. Ikea decided to contribute with their own celebration of the couple: under the name Together (allow us here to point out that for those of us remembering the 2000 Lukas Moodyson movie this might not give the very best associations regarding the future happiness of the princess) they put up a pavilion - an Ikea-tent-castle if you prefer - close to the royal castle in the old town.

Ikea had thought of most details: there were a set of golden skis in the garage, a gallery of ancestors in the hallways, fitness equipment in the bedroom and of course the dining hall had been decked up for a grand dinner. They even had the menu figured out...

("I want meatballs from [the world's largest Ikea]")

...as well as prince-preparation-exercises for Daniel...

...and of course a bed worthy of a real princess.
