Prince Carl Philip and his wife Sofia of Sweden celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary on June 13.
Before they met in 2015, Sofia Hellqvist was known for her almost nude poses and her roles in adult films.
Prince Carl Philip and his wife Sofia of Sweden reportedly met at a nightclub, when Prince Carl Philip was fresh out of a relationship with publicist Emma Pernald.
Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden celebrated their woolen wedding anniversary on June 13. From this union were born three children: Alexander, born in April 2016, Gabriel, born in August 2017, and Julian, born in March 2021. The journalist Pierrick Geais had drawn up the portrait of the mother of the family on Vanity Fair, to discover to the public his “incredible” journey. While she left school at the age of 18, Sofia Hellqvist, 37, earned her living by being a waitress, to then embark on modeling. After shootings where Sofia from Sweden chained poses less and less dressed, she won the title of Miss Slitz 2004, awarded by the erotic magazine Spletnik, when Sofia Hellqvist was only 20 years old.
The following year, the wife of Prince Carl Philip, 43, was spotted as a candidate for a reality show akin to Temptation Island, titled Paradise Hotel where she is hired as a temptress. Sofia Hellqvist then continued her journey to the United States, where she became an adult film actress, according to Vanity Fair. In the company of a former colleague of Paradise Hotel, Jenna Jameson, the press goes so far as to qualify the two friends as possibly lesbians.

In January 2010, Sofia Hellqvist became a yoga teacher in Manhattan. At that time, she multiplied her stays in Stockholm, where she would have met Prince Philip in a nightclub. Vanity Fair reports that at the time, the royal and the reality TV contestant were 5 years apart, which didn’t seem to bother them either. Despite this heavy sulphurous past, Sofia of Sweden has managed to be accepted into the very select circle of the royal family and today proudly wears the title of mother.
