I can’t put
my finger on why Eggsy is wearing a uniform when he marries Princess Tilde. It
isn’t, thank GOD, a Swedish uniform – nor is his medals, but before that day is
over he’d most likely be a Swedish knight – and I thought that he had dropped
out of training for the Royal Marines. Dropouts don’t get to wear the uniform! The Kingsmen don’t have uniforms like
that, either, right?
Kingsmen wear beautiful, bespoke armour and uniforms in the form of suits that
they make themselves. So why, oh why, is Eggsy wearing… that…thing… *handwaves* at his
own wedding? Sure, sure, most of the tailors/Kingsmen are dead… but Harry isn’t.
Do you have
any fucking idea how well it would have played in the media to have a story about his suit run side-by-side with the detailed description of how Princess Tilde’s
wedding dress was made by Swedish designer with fabric from her Duchy and lace
given to her as a wedding gift by her Godmother the Queen of Denmark?
Something like this:
Rarely, on occasions
like these, is the focus on the groom and what the groom wears, but Princess
Tilde’s fiance, Gary Unwin, is after all a tailor by profession and the Royal
court announced today that the groom will be wearing morning dress made by his
own teacher and mentor, Mr Harry Hart. Mr Hart will also stand with the groom
during the wedding ceremony.
come on, that would have been amazing! The press would have eaten that up with

History of the Scandinavian Cross Flag (“Nordic Cross”)
According to legend, the flag of Denmark originated during the Battle of Lyndanisse, part of the Northern Crusades, near modern-day Tallinn in Estonia, on June 15, 1219: The battle began when a group of pagans attacked Danish crusaders by surprise, killing Bishop Theoderich von Treyden. King Valdemar II of Denmark was nearing certain defeat when the Archbishop of Lund, Anders Sunesen, raised his arms in prayer to God; suddenly a flag (called the ‘Dannebrog’ in Danish) miraculously fell from the sky; taken as a sign of Christ’s protection, the King took it and showed it to his troops; their hearts were filled with courage and the Danes won the battle.
According to Swedish legend, the flag of Sweden originated when King St. Erik IX saw a golden cross in the sky during the First Swedish Crusade in 1157. He considered this a sign from God and adopted the golden cross on a blue background as his banner.
Regardless of who had the flag first, the cross design, which represents Christianity, was adopted by Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, the Åland Islands, Scania, Shetland, Orkney and several other areas around northern Europe.
