I think you feel like I feel. I'm happy for them and I should not be surprised since they have dated so long. But I kind of thought this relationship was not going to progress to marriage for some reason. That they had become too comfortable and must want different things but were having trouble admitting that to each other. So in a way I'm shocked too.

I am wondering what he will do with his gyms? Sell them? A prince and a gym owner or gym owner turned prince. Possibly the wedding not taking place until Summer of 2010 allows him to figure things out further. I was also thinking a lavish royal wedding in 2010 instead of 2009 made more sense based on the economy. I don't know how well Sweden's economy is but I know many countries are in a recession. Including the countries of some likely wedding guests.

I'm thinking we will be waiting awhile for the engagments of Madeleine and Carl-Philip. Can't image them getting engaged any time soon and stealing Victoria's thunder.

I am really happy that the engagement is finally announced. It's been a loooooong time. They look so happy together and I wish them well. Since the economy is so bad, would they consider a triple wedding in Sweden? They could all get married at one time and save all that money. Just kidding.

Having seen the spectacular ring, Daniel may have waited to save up that much money. It's a wonderful, big diamond and must have cost a million or more.

Daniel seemed very relaxed with all of the royal family when they appeared together to discuss the engagement. All must be well with them and we can now quit speculating, worrying, and wondering. Of course, we can now speculate on who will attend them and where and when will the wedding be held. After that, we can all speculate on their future children. This will be fun.

Hurrah, Hurrah, Hurrah. Congratulations.

I admit I have not read every page of this thread since it's become so long so quick. So I apoplogize if this has already been discussed. But it looks like it is maybe the same dress just different colors.

Is it just me or do these two look like kids? When some of the other royal weddings have taken place in recent years I never had that thought. But for some reason with these two I'm looking at these pictures saying to myself that they look like two kids. That grown-up mature polished look isn't there as it was with the other royals in recent years. Although I believe Haakon is the only other royal in recent years to marry at a younger age than Victoria. I don't know but there is something about them that is so youthful. Certainly not a bad thing. I just hope they are ready for what is coming their way.

They look so happy together and I love the engagement ring which Daniel bought his lovely bride-to-be. And I never saw Victoria with such glamour and smiling.

congratulations to cp victoria and to daniel. i guess that would end up all the speculations and gossips (including our RF poll )that has been going on about cp victoria. daniel is her choice and she seems to be very happy with him. i also hope that we would witness more swedish royal engagements in the near future. Congratulations to the swedish royal family and to sweden.

That would be very 'Britney Spears' and very disappointing if she did, but I think Daniel could probably afford that ring.

I definately agree that he looks much better with glasses! More distinguished!

I'm already speculating on what tiara Victoria should/would wear but I'm not sure where to post it (here or in jewelry).

What the "surprise". Many people said 'finally' when Daniel and Victoria announced engagement. Although they were dating so long, it was really surprising. And I think this is what they wanted, I guess, surprise the media and people, well organized.
I am not Daniel's fan, I don't think he is appropriate for educated woman like Victoria, and especially he is not right for a spouse of crown princess. But I can't deny that he makes Victoria happy. She was radiant during engagement. She really seems to be a woman in love. Good luck for her.
I wish Daniel had glasses. He looked a bit stressed but later he relaxed.
Did Victoria change her dresses during engagement day? During press conference she had red dress, then dark blue.
The dark blue dress was lovely, simple and elegant, the material seemed silk. I liked Victoria hairdo better when she was wearing that blue dress than her pony tail she had while in red dress.
Her ring seemed nice, but I expected something bolder, maybe with wider band and larger gem, even with more than just a diamond, e.g. diamond and some different gem(s).

Princess's royal parents did not appear happy. Especially the king, he was so serious in one video, while his daughter was all in smiles. Queen Sylvia seemed just distant and polite.

It seems quite odd they wait so long with wedding, especially having so long courtship.
Anyway, congrats and good look to a couple.

I can't deny part of me was secretly hoping for a wedding between CPs Victoria and Prince Nichalos of Greece. Even though many would think he is more suited to the role of Prince Consort, there obviously isn't the love between them that there is between CPs Victoria and Daniel and I don't that a union between CPsV and PN would be a happy one.

I think especially Victoria looks like a schoolgirl with her ponytail and ordinary dress, nothing regal about it. I like Daniel and I find him quite mature, Victoria sometimes does the giggling girlie thing but he comes across as serious and quite "grounded".

AND YES, the winner is the black frame

It was announced that the Royal Wedding will take place in late spring or early summer 2010.
I was looking at the 2010 calendar and I think the wedding could be on June 19th 2010.
It is also the weddingdate of Victoria's parents (which would be a lovely tribute to her parents) and it's on a Saturday (which is a popular day to get married on in royal circles)
So I guess the wedding will be on Saturday 19-06 2010!
Does anyone know when the date will be officially announced?
