Ex-Swedish glamour model Sofia Hellqvist is known to the public for being a prominent model who had posed topless in men's magazines and for being a contestant who reached the finals of the provocative and boundary-testing television reality show "Paradise Hotel". During her time on the show she was caught kissing adult entertainment star Jenna Jameson and as she created an image as the fantasy woman for many men and was a woman who many entertainment insiders anticipated would move on to a career as a television or film star.
Life sometimes has a way of changing how a person acts and this seems to be the case for this beautiful ex-model since she met Prince Carl Philip, third in line to the throne of Sweden while in a night club in 2009. Since meeting him she has been less provocative with regard to her image and in interviews has described her fiancee as one of "the most humble people she has ever met".
They started dating in 2010 and began living together in 2011 and for many entertainment insiders she is looked at as a great influence on the young Prince whom was often described as playboy who preferred driving race cars and attending wild parties than attending to royal duties.
Thus the prospect of the young prince settling down and proposing to the gorgeous Sofia Hellqvist caught many in the entertainment industry by surprise.
The engagement announcement was made at Drottingholm Palace where she stole the show with how exceptional she looked in a scarlet dress while showing off her new engagement ring.
She captured the heart of Prince Philip and also earned the approval of Queen Silva, his mother who at first was not overly enthusiastic about the choice of her son but now along with her husband King Carl XVI is overjoyed about the engagement and looking forward to the wedding of their son.
Sofia Hellqvist will soon become Princess Sofia Hellqvist and now has entertainment insiders in a state of high anticipation for both the bachelor and bachelorette parties that she and her fiancee might have and the likely wedding of the year.
