It's pity for us we don't see the couple in Gala-dress.

jinigirl He moved to Drottningholm in July 2008, why should they wait for 8 month to announce the engagement. 2 or 3 weeks, maybe 1 month, that makes sense, but 8 month to announce the wedding, and than wait for 1 1/2 year to get married?!?
I understand that they waited 8 months to make the engagement public, Daniel might have needed some time out of the public eye to sort out parts of his life.
But why they decide to wait another 1 1/2 years to get married is beyond me. IMO an extended time in a "semi-royal" status as fiancee is a disadvantage rather than beneficial for Daniel.

It's in fact very soon, considering the fact that it took them 7 years to get engaged

Congratulations! I like Daniel, and I think he will be a great husband. I find that Daniel is a little fatter than when I first knew him about a year or two years ago, and I think he is much better-looking when wearing his glasses, am I right?

I read in a German paper that in fact it was Madeleine's wish to marry this summer that made Victoria and Daniel officially announce their betrothal - which dates back to last summer, as they stated. We'll probably hear about Madeleine next month and then she can marry in 2009 and Victoria can follow in 2010.

Firstly, my warmest congratulations goes out to the happy couple! Crown Princess Victoria has made a great choice in Daniel Westling, you can really see that they care deeply about eachother.

Secondly, some of the comments in this thread makes my stomach turn. I just get this feeling that some posters' think that it's a step down for the Crown Princess to marry Daniel because she's a woman. Where they these kinds of comments when Crown Prince Haakon got engaged to Mette-Marit? Or when Crown Prince Frederik got engaged to Mary?

What paper? It´s probably made up, but I am actually not excluding it completely. Madeleine and Jonas seem very stable as couple and Madeleine all ready to get a child...it´s a bit difficult to imagine, she would wait until 2011 with her wedding.
If she would marry summer 09, The gap between the two weddings would be similiar to the ones of Constantijn to Willem Alexander or the one of Haakon to Märtha Louise. Madeleine´s wedding would be smaller, 5-6 months of preparations (August 2009) would do it probably.

I am just not sure, if the Slow-a-dottes would now really move that fast and maybe there would be a fear, the Swedes could get tired of Royal weddings already before the Crown Princess and Daniel could marry.

I don't understand why Victoria has to marry first. Prince Joachim married before CP Frederick, Princess Anne before CP Charles, the Spanish pricesses before their brother, one of the Dutch princes' married before CP William-Alexander, and the same with CP Phillipe's sisters. Is this a custom which is followed only in Sweden?

This is the Catch-22 of mordern day royalty, IMO.

On the one hand you are right the mystique dies when a personal trainer can became a Prince or a cocktail waitress a Princess.

BUT

They probably cannot do any better than that. In this day and age, which Neurosurgeon, Astronaut or Lawyer would be willing to give up a career that they spent years studing for and cultivating to become a Prince or Princess and do royal duties?

By agreeing to marry Victoria, Daniel gives up on his "life" and becomes a royal spouse- not terribly attactive for someone say who is extremely well educated and has a great career of their own. Heck, I am convinced even a Jonas Bergstrom would not make that career sacrifice. I was a bit surprised that someone as "moderately sucessfull" as Letizia did that.

Do you think she bought her own ring???

I mean, she's a CP, he's a gym owner. How can he afford to purchase a ring suitable for a Royal Finger?

I don't know if there was any compulsion for Victoria to marry first. But, it would be completely pointless for the Royal Family to announce Victoria's engagement and wedding in 2010 and then announce that either Madeline or Carl Philip were to get engaged after them and marry before them.

I think, this is only a rumour. That Victoria (maybe...as I´ve said, I think the idea of a summer 09 wedding for Madeleine is not completely strange) would now marry faster is more a coincidence and due to age, if the girls would be only 1.5 years apart, maybe Madeleine would have married last year or so.
