Stockholm: Sweden`s royal family says Princess Madeleine`s wedding will take place on Saturday, June 8, at the Royal Palace chapel in downtown Stockholm.
King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia`s youngest daughter was engaged to US-British boyfriend Christopher O`Neill, a 38-year-old New York banker, in late October. The 30-year-old Madeleine is fourth in line to the Swedish throne.
The royal family`s chief spokesman Bertil Tenert said Sunday that wedding organizers will now start planning details of the nuptials. He added that Madeleine`s wedding will be smaller than Crown Princess Victoria`s wedding two years ago in Stockholm.

The Swedish royal family has only ceremonial duties, such as supporting charities and promoting Swedish businesses.
