Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia celebrated their 5th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday, 13 June 2020.

They shared new photos of their wedding day and a message on their Instagram account, Prinsparet, to mark this milestone.

Sometimes every person comes to a decisive choice; a choice that determines one’s future and is about who one is and above all who one wants to be. And often it takes courage. Courage not to choose the easy path just because it is easy, without courage to stay on the hard road because it’s right.
