Royal marriage advice

At their June 19 wedding in Stockholm's Church of St. Nicholas, Swedish Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling were reminded by (Lutheran) Church of Sweden Archbishop Anders Wejryd that they aren't indispensible.

"But we're still needed," he said in the wedding sermon. "We can all be called into question, not least if we are public figures. ... Criticism costs nothing, not even when it's spiteful. But we all still need to try to make a positive contribution using our talents."
