I'm happy for them both, and wish them great joy.

I think, though, that as we move forward through time, we will see further dilution of Royal bloodlines until there is very little Royal blood left in the titular rulers which still have active monarchies. Victoria's children will be 1/4 Royal, as her mother was not born Royal, nor was her (future) husband.

I think monarchy will go out eventually - not with a bang, but with a whimper.

And maybe that's neither "good" nor "bad."

That is so true. The same goes for Princess Ingrid of Norway who is already in line to inherit the throne and she is 1/4 royal and 3/4 commoner. I thought the same thought but did not want to spoil the special day.
So far only Liechtenstein has married into royalty. All the other houses have already diluted "the royal blood", some more than others but we are getting there!

The monarchies will die whether the crownprinces/princesses marry royalty or not. It is simply not relevant in today's world. Although I would love to see our monarchies remain forever - it just will not happen.

I am very happy for Victoria. I believe Daniel will be an excellent Prins.

What all this talk about "royal blood" and "commoner blood"? Last time I checked, we're all homo sapiens capable of reproduction! Anyway, let's not spoil such a wonderful event with downer talk. Obviously after a while the monarchies will die out, but that won't be because they didn't have enough "royal blood", it'll be because many people will feel that they are unncessary. But that's a discussion for another place and time. Let's just celebrate the engagement that we've all (or a lot of us) have been eagerly waiting for.

I am wondering, if we would get pictures with all 4 parents (king, queen, Eva & Olle Westling) tomorrow.

Out of the interview with TT

Daniel about Victoria
-You are the world´s most considerate person and you always put the interests/needs of others before your own. I think, that´s the reason, why you are so popular and loved. All understand that you are real and down-to-earth. I´ve never met an as genuine person as you.
That he is now ready to give his ordinary life up and to marry a future queen is due to love, he says.
-One can´t not say "no thanks" to love, if it is so strong

Well, yes, they will die out because they will lose the mystique and "otherness" that they once had because they keep marrying real estate agents, financial advisors, news readers, cocktail waitresses and personal trainers.

Actually, I agree with Shaiya.
