Of course now Aftonbladet has taken the chance to ask Victoria about Daniel in Hungary (otherwise they probably wouldn´t have reported...if you want to see the article and the pictures look in the news thread)


Firstly the reporter has asked her about Daniel´s education to be a prince (among other things english lessons):
V: I don´t want to comment that now
When Aftonbladet asked her about an engagement and later a wedding she only answered with a smile:
V: Give it up
And then the reporter added, if she couldn´t give a little hint
V: Unfortunately (not)

So Victoria doesn´t want to give away a secret. Of course now TRF-reporter Lena is wondering why. Is it, because she´s sick and tired of Aftonbladet? Is is it, because the things are true, and of course she wouldn´t answer "yes, we are engaged since May and Daniel has 5 lessons a day"? Questions over questions...and no answers.

Article from Aftonbladet today:

Så har Vickan förändrat livet för Daniel Westling - This is how Victoria has changed Daniel's life

Victorias pojkvän Daniel Westling skolas in till prins inför deras kommande förlovning. Men i dag ser den enkle Ockelbokillens tillvaro redan annorlunda ut. Aftonbladet har kartlagt hur Daniels liv har förändrats sedan han blev tillsammans med sin kronprinsessa.

Bostaden - Home.
Då: När Daniel träffade Victoria bodde han i en tvåa i gårdshuset med fönster åt gården. Det duger knappast om du är tillsammans med en kronprinsessa. Dessutom klagade Säpo över att den var för svårbevakad och utsatt.
Nu: Daniel flyttade istället in i en exklusiv och insynsskyddad våning på Banérgatan. Victoria har hjälpt honom att inreda i elegant stil.
English summary: His last apartment was not good enough, and Säpo complained about the security. Now he has a new exclusive apartment, which Victoria has helped him decorate.

Jobbet - Job.
Då: Daniels privata gym Master Training gick visserligen hyfsat bra innan han blev tillsammans med Victoria...
Nu: ...men sedan dess har hans gym blivit en riktig kassako och kundkretsen har ökat väsentligt. Tillsammans med kollegan Benny Johansson har han startat ytterligare ett lyxgym för kändisar och direktörer i Stockholms city.
English summary: His gym business was doing fine before, but since be got together with Victoria, it has turned out to become a real goldmine. His circle of customers has grown, and he's also started a new gym.

Bilen - Car.
Då: En röd Alfa Romeo som Daniel snabbt som attan byte ut när han förstod att pressen visste vad han rattade.
Nu: En svart, lyxig, stadsjeep av modellen Lexus RX 300 som kostade närmare en halv miljon kronor. Prinsessan Madeleine kör en likadan modell.
English summary: Before a red Alfa Romeo that he changed as soon as the press found out what he drove. Today he has a luxurious SUV, and Princess Madeleine has the same one.

Umgängeskretsen - Circle of friends.
Då: Kompisarna var mest Ockelbo-polarna och några golfare som Daniel lärde känna genom sitt gym.
Nu: Daniel har fått massor av nya vänner från den stockholmska societeten. Här finns bland andra Victorias kompisar Niclas Engsäll och Christoffer "Stoffe" Cederlund. Men också krogkungen och Café Opera-ägaren Sandro Catenacci.
English summary: Before mostly his Ockelbo pals and a few golfers he got to know via his gym. Today, he has gotten a lot of friends in the Stockholm society, among them Victoria's friends Niclas Engsäll and Christoffer Cederlund.

Nattklubbslivet - Night life.
Då: Daniel var anonym och befann han sig ute på lokal var det ingen som brydde sig.
Nu: I dag eskorteras Daniel i största hemlighet in på nattklubbarna Stockholm. Han behandlas mer eller mindre som en kung på innekrogar som Café Opera och Sturecompagniet.
English summary: Before he was anonymous and no one cared about him when he was out. Today he is escorted in to the best nighclubs, and is treated as a king at the most trendy places.

Mediabevakningen - Media coverage.
Då: En irriterad och arg Westling fräste åt journalister och slängde igen dörrar.
Nu: I dag är han trevlig och hälsar ofta på journalister han möter. Samtidigt som han inte gillar uppmärksamhet har han berättat att han förstår sig på pressen bättre nu. En totalförändring.
English summary: Before he was angry at journalists and slammed dors at them and said things. Today he is polite and greets journalists he meets. At the same time as he doesn't like attention, he has said that he understands them better now.

Kändisskapet - Being famous.
Då: Såg Daniel en kändisfotograf lade han benen på ryggen och kutade iväg.
Nu: Betydligt mer avslappnad. I somras ställde han till och med upp på bild för veckopressen i och med att besökte tennisveckan i Båstad. Sin första tidningsintervju gav han för en skoltidning i Ockelbo.
English summary: Before if he saw a photographer, he ran as fast as he could. Today he is more relaxed. During the tennis week in Båstad he even agreed to appear on a picture, and he has given his first interview to a school paper.

Livet med Victoria - Life with Victoria.
Då: Paret smög länge med sin kärlek och umgicks mest hemma hos varandra.
Nu: Daniel och Victoria syns ofta och ogenerat tillsammans. De går på restaurang, basketmatcher, handlar på NK och myser med varandra i biosalongerna.
English summary: In the beginning the couple sneaked around with their relationship and mostly met a each others apartments. Now they walk around as a normal couple: they go to restaurants, shop at NK and get cosy at the cinema.

Yes, and if he would now even smile in the pictures, it would be perfect

Snuggling in the Cinema...what a pity, that Nyhlén and his camera weren´t there so far Well, shouldn´t be so curious.

Thank you for posting and writing an english summary, GrandDuchess :)

BTW I don´t think that an engagement will take place before the Nobel prize award...or at least not in the following four weeks. This would then mean, that Daniel would have to be present at the award ceremony and at the gala. And I can´t imagine that they would "confront" him with such an big event (usually the biggest event in the schedule of the SRF) in the beginning.
Further Victoria has lately denied wedding rumours (which were published in this german magazine) via her lawyer. So it would look a little bit strange, if she would get engaged now...only my thoughts...maybe I´m wrong...what do others think on this?

I read on Hola.com today that Victoria has decided that she will get married with Daniel and that he is starting to prepare for his role as the consort of the future queen. Hmmmm.. is this the rumor mill or is it true?

If they were to marry, I don't think that they'll be an announcement of it until Daniel has passed the Prince Consort Boot Camp with flying colors...

Well, there is no evidence. But we actually never had evidences in the other Royal families too (think of Felipe and Letizia, Frederik and Mary, Haakon and MM...). We only have noticed more and more "signs" (the engagement of Felipe and Letizia excluded...I mean, nobody of the Royal watchers and journalists knew it before), which the couples gave to us. And judging the signs, I would say it becomes indeed serious between princess Victoria and Daniel Westling. So I would say, an engagement becomes more and more likely.

funny post But I´ve to think of princess Mary´s danish boot camp. And with no doubt she hasn´t finished it on May 14th! And what should Daniel really learn? Yes, he has to refresh his english...but I doubt that he eats with his fingers, burps and doesn´t know how to dress a tailcoat. Of course he needs to know things about politics and history, but he could learn shortly before his first engagements. For example if Denmark would pay a state visit to Sweden, he would know months before and could read about Denmark and its monarchy.

I wonder why he gave up the Alfa? imo, a better car (for prestige) than a commonized SUV.

I wonder if he still has his Oclelbo buddies, or if they have been blown off the scale by the haughtiness/richess/statusness of the Stockholm set ?

Good question...wonder the same. But I remember that he said in the interview in June, that he still knows, who he is and who his friends are. So this sounds as if he could count on his old friends, and the friends on him (?)

"Court reporter" Norbert Loh in his weekly column ( http://www.aktuelle.de/aktuelle/cont...t_bei_hofe.php ):

In der vergangenen Woche gab es Spekulationen um eine Hochzeit von Kronprinzessin Victoria von Schweden mit Daniel Westling. Die große schwedische Tageszeitung "Aftonbladet" hatte von einer bevorstehenden Verlobung geschrieben. Ich erkundigte mich im Stockholmer Palast bei der Presse-Chefin Ann-Christine Jernberg. Auf meine Frage, ob wir mit einer baldigen Verlobung der Kronprinzessin rechnen können, sagte sie: "Nein". Neuerdings dementiert der Königshof Zeitungsartikel aus der schwedischen Tagespresse auf seiner Internetseite: www.royalcourt.se

In the last week there were speculations about a wedding of crown princess Victoria of Sweden to Daniel Westling. The big daily newspaper "Aftonbladet" has written about an forthcoming engagement. I got informations at the Royal court from the press chief of the court Ann-Christine Jernberg. On my question, if we can count on an forthcoming engagement, she said: "no".
Of late the Royal court comments articles of/in the swedish press on its homepage: www.royalcourt.se

Translation of article from Expressen today (http://www.expressen.se/index.jsp?a=202190):

Victoria about her love problems
Now Victoria is reveals her love troubles. In an interview by Linda Nyberg in “Helt ärligt” on TV4 tomorrow night, she tells about Daniel Westling.
- It’s not easy to all of a sudden get attention. To become someone who gets reviewed.

TV4’s profile Linda Nyberg recently travelled together with Victoria in Hungary. The Crown Princess was there for the Swedish-Hungarian trade days. Linda Nyberg was the only TV journalist who got an interview with Victoria, and the result is aired tomorrow night in “Helt ärligt” 20:00 PM on TV4.

Many wrong things are written
In the interview, Victoria tells about her and Daniel Westling’s not always so problem free relationship:
- It’s not always so easy to be together with me, but I think that applies to all people who are in the spotlight.
- If you come in from the side, from totally private to this, because of love, it’s no doubt a new situation.
Victoria says in the interview that many wrong things are written about Daniel Westling:
- Many people speculate, but someday there will probably be some justice even there.

The people decides
Victoria has never thought about giving up her place in the Line of Succession.
- No, that alternative doesn’t exist for me. As long as the Swedish people things one does a good job…. It’s really up to the Swedish people.
- Besides, the monarchy is a good and important heritage that we should cherish.
In the interview with Linda Nyberg, Victoria also says that she has difficulties saying no to official engagements:
- But I’ve improved. It’s about knowing your limits. If you run yourself out, you don’t do a good job.

Thank you, GrandDuchess...this sentence leaves a lot of space for (even more ) speculations. Justice? What does that mean? Sounds like a sentence of G.W. Bush

Victorias pojkvän blir slottsherre


WESTLINGS LYXIGA DRÖMPROJEKT Daniel Westling och hans kollega Benny Johansson planerar ett exklusivt massageinstitut i Ulvsunda slott i Bromma. Men först ska slottets 54 hotellrum byggas färdigt.

Startar massageinstitut i Bromma

Nu har Daniel Westling hittat sitt drömprojekt.
Nästa år öppnar kronprinsessan Victorias pojkvän ett exklusivt massageinstitut på Ulvsunda slott.
Sedan Daniel Westling blev tillsammans med kronprinsessan har hans lyxgym Master Training på Regeringsgatan i Stockholm mångdubblat sin vinst.
Den rika kundkretsen har svällt och i vissa perioder har gymmet haft svårt att ta emot nya medlemmar.

Utökar efter nyår
Tillsammans med kompanjonen Benny Johansson öppnade Daniel därför ett nytt gym på Nybrogatan, där bland annat kronprinsessan Victoria och prinsessan Madeleine regelbundet tränar.
Efter nyår utökar nu Daniel Westling sin verksamhet ytterligare.
Han och kollegan öppnar han nu ett exklusivt massage- och friskvårdsinstitut på Ulvsunda slott i Bromma i Stockholm.

Massage & yoga
- Vi har planer på en må-bra-avdelningmed inriktning på massage och olika former av avslappning och yoga. Om vi kallar det för Ulvsunda massageinstitut eller nåt annat vet jag inte i dag, säger Lars Tisell, marknadschef på Ulvsunda slott.
Enligt uppgifter blir två av Daniels samarbetspartners de exklusiva skönhetsmärkena Decléor och Carita.

54 rum byggs om
Om allt går enligt planerna slår Westling och Johansson upp portarna under 2005.
Men först ska de 54 hotellrummen i de olika flyglarna byggas färdigt.

For those who aren´t familiar with swedish: Daniel and his companion Benny will start an massage and relaxing (yoga...) institute in Ulvsunda-castle (54 rooms) in Bromma (so not too far away from his Vicky ) The business should/will be started in 2005.


This expanding of the business...don´t understand that. I mean this project (changing a castle to a spa-center) is probably extremely expensive. And it will last several years to get the money back through incomes. But this would mean, that Daniel has to stay co-partner (?)

Question Interesting

I do remember that sometime ago that there was a discussion in these forums that if Daniel were to marry Victoria he would most likely have to give his business up.

So we have another new business venture. Do you think that there is the possibility now, in the near future of an engagement? Could he still run his business if he married Victoria?

I think the term you mean doesn´t exist in english. I´m even not sure, if it exists in the official german language, but was created a few years ago of women´s and lifestyle magazines.

But your theory is interesting...maybe it´s indeed just temporary. Do you also think that both partners agree on this? Or that one (the female part) wants more?

To Gitas question...I don´t think, that he can keep this business. I could imagine that he could stay financial co-partner for several years. But he couldn´t go on to work as personal trainer or administrator...no way.
