Sweden's Prince Carl Philip has married a former reality-TV star and glamour model in a lavish ceremony in the chapel at Stockholm's Royal Palace. Sofia Hellqvist, 30, also worked as a topless model and a yoga instructor before helping to set up a charity.  Her new husband, 36-year-old Carl Philip, is third in line to the throne.

Thousands of well-wishers lined the streets for the event, despite polls suggesting the Swedish royal family's popularity is waning. The new bride appears to have adjusted quickly to the pomp and ceremony of royal life. After their marriage ceremony, the couple took to a horse-drawn carriage to parade through the cobbled streets of Stockholm's old town, waving to crowds in the hot summer sun, before returning to the palace for a 21-gun salute and wedding banquet. About 550 guests attended the ceremony, many of them royals, including Princess Takamado of Japan and Britain's Prince Edward.

Curators at London's Wellcome Collection will not be surprised if lines form outside their new "Institute of Sexology" exhibition. "It's free and it's got sex in the title," co-curator Kate Ford said Wednesday.  The collection is mostly a witty look at the study of human sexuality, featuring notables from Sigmund Freud to Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and director Woody Allen.

It also has serious elements, including searing black-and-white film footage of the Nazis burning the library of noted German sex researcher Magnus Hirschfeld in 1933. "He was openly gay and Jewish, so a natural (Nazi) target," Ford said. The new exhibit is named after Hirschfeld's original Institute of Sexology to honor him and other sex research pioneers.
