Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist's wedding menu will be prepared by the only Scandinavian chef who holds three Michelin stars, Mathias Dahlgren. The chef owns two restaurants in the Swedish capital, one which was the second restaurant ever in Sweden to be attributed two Michelin stars, Matsalen, and the other, Matbaren, with one star. Both restaurants are found under the same roof, of Stockholm's Grand Hôtel.

No doubt Prince Carl Philip has personally crossed paths with many of the chefs that will be designing and serving elaborate dishes for him, his new wife and their guests on 13 June – the royal has a keen interest in fine cuisine and he is patron of the Swedish Bocuse d'Or Academy.

In January the 35-year-old attended the Bocuse d'Or chefs contest in Lyon, France and a month later, the prince was on the panel of Chef of the Year alongside Michelin-starred restaurant owner Mathias.

Their wedding ceremony will take place the following day at 4.30pm at the royal chapel in Stockholm. After the church ceremony, Carl Philip and Sofia, 30, will make their first public appearance as newlyweds, travelling in procession by horse and carriage.

The June weekend of celebrations will commence on the eve of the wedding day with a private dinner for the couple's nearest and dearest.

The procession will end in Logården, a garden in the royal palace, where the married couple will be greeted by a salute of 21 shots from Skeppsholmen. After their Michelin star-worthy meal, there will be dancing in Karl XI's Gallery.
