Prince Carl Philip proudly stepped out with his fiancée Sofia Hellqvist at the Nobel Prize ceremony on Wednesday. The Swedish prince, who is set to wed Sofia on 13 June 2015, beamed as he descended the stairs in Stockholm City Hall with the former model on his arm.

Dressed in a stunning fuchsia gown and wearing her long dark locks in an elegant chignon, Sofia looked every inch the princess-to-be.


Carl Philip, who is third-in-line to the Swedish throne after his elder sister Crown Princess Victoria and her two-year-old daughter Princess Estell, looked handsome in smart black tailcoat.
