Swedish Prince Carl Philip to Marry Sofia Hellqvist

In addition to having previously worked as a yoga instructor, been a contestant on the now-defunct reality show Paradise Hotel, and posed for Slitz magazine with a boa constrictor wrapped around her bare torso, it turns out that Sweden's multifaceted future princess also used to be an exceptional waitress. Sofia Hellqvist is scheduled to marry Sweden's Prince Carl Philip on Saturday, which "Page Six" took as a cue to call her references at the New York pizzeria Serafina, where she worked from 2005 to 2007.
