He may be married to a princess, but don't call Christopher O'Neill a prince.
The Noster Capital partner and Princess Madeleine of Sweden wed on Saturday in Stockholm, with Madeleine's father, King Carl XVI Gustaf, giving her away. But O'Neill has declined a royal rank—which would have required the dual American and British citizen to become a Swedish citizen—and the couple will return to New York, where he works at the hedge fund and she at a charity founded by her mother.
The ceremony at Stockholm's Royal Chapel reflected the couple's differences, with hymns in both Swedish and English. Madeleine read her vows in Swedish, while O'Neill, who said last year he is trying to learn his new wife's mother tongue, read his in English.
Some 470 European royals attended the ceremony—including representatives of the British, Danish, Greek, Japanese, Luxembourgian and Monagasque royal families. Also in attendance were some of New York's social elite and celebrities, Reuters reports.
Madeleine is fourth in line to the Swedish throne. Her children will have to be raised in Sweden to be eligible to join her in the line of succession.
