Princess Sofia of Sweden channelled Kate Middleton’s gown at controversial wedding

Originally, Sofia wore the tiara with a set of emerald toppers. The original setting of the tiara featured a rigid, coronet-style base, which sat perched atop Sofia’s head.

The newly married royal couple were joined by family, friends and a host of guests from around the world.

Following their emotional ceremony, they celebrated their nuptials with a carriage ride through the streets of the Swedish capital and a lavish reception, complete with dinner and dancing that continued long into the night.

However, their wedding was not without controversy. At the age of 20, Sofia was published in photos in the men’s magazine Slitz wearing only a bikini bottom and a live boa constrictor around her upper body, and was later voted “Miss Slitz 2004” by readers.
