Or maybe the parents of Vic and Daniel don't like eachother and didn't want to show with eachother... Or this is awkward for the King and Queen...
She is the future Queen of Sweden and no pictures about "happy family"???? The story doesn't hold together...
They have at least met for a dinner/small party at Drottningholm. Pics have documented that.
Victoria with Daniel´s parents Eva and Olle
Maybe the official family pix would still come. In Norway it also took a few days until the pix with the parents got released.
I don´t think Eva and Olle are shy really. They used to talk to the press before (though in a very discreet way) and at the wedding, they also need to get out of their holes...
he he.. Its winther in Sweden.... and this winther has been v cold and snowy, and maybe she likes to went outside without gloves...or maybe she pull them off when she is getting warm while jogging or something - thats how real swedish winther hands looks like... my hands looks like hers and my fingers are cracking because of coldness (havnt done the dishes for weeks so that cant be the reason ) and thats life (if you are to lazy to put some conditioner on)
As it seems she doesn´t get cold easily. So maybe she doesn´t feel a physical need to protect her hands, but of course it shows at the skin.
In summer her hands look healthier usually...
A few news by Expressen. Mainly coming from Johan T. Lindwall, so I don´t know, if everything is correct
A few things out of the chat with Johan T.
-He got to hear, that it was Mamma Eva, who got to hear firstly about his plans to propose.
-Daniel´s surname will be Bernadotte
-Johan T. knows exactly, when Daniel did propose and will reveal it soon
-Daniel did self pay for the ring and bought it at the court jeweller Bolin http://www.bolin.se/
-He thinks Madeleine and CP can after the announcement also get engaged. Madeleine would then marry in 2011 earliest and CP & Emma 1-2 years after that...
Daniel´s cousin is a famous innebandy (some kind of hockey) player, who got the nick name "Hans Majestät" (His Majesty)
Daniel har redan en kung i släkten - Nyheter - Expressen.se
There will be stamps on the couple around the wedding.
Daniel did ask the king for his daughter´s hand in the king´s office. And when Daniel did propose the bodyguards were asked to stay away a little (wonder, how Johan T. could know
In the interview with TT Victoria said, that they both love children very much and that it would be their biggest dream to create a family...
Daniel and Victoria use(d) to be some kind of entertaining "docu soap" for me and some other users here. An endless docu soap, even when the "viewing rates" were low (in fact I am surprised, how many different users stop by now and write something
) for quite some time.
But on a more serious note, I wanna say, that I am really impressed by Daniel, that he is really doing that for Victoria. It takes so much to give up his old life. Surely he gets privileges and his life will be a lot more exciting than the life of his former schoolmates out of Ockelbo/Sandviken, but this is nothing in relation to the vulnerability, that will now accompany his life (and his children´s life) and the special circumstances, which surround him as (ambitious) man...
