so what is the reason why engagement in February 2009 and wedding spring or early summer 2010

i heard that
the amount of time for the wedding in spring - early summer is to short, it takes time tp plan the wedding
Sweden will have the Presidency of the Council of the European Union 2010 - that costs money
Give daniel time to be introduced to Sweden
Give daniel time to step down as VD for is business and find how it will work later on.

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...
there was a privite dinner at drottningholm later that night
with daniels parents and the king and queen, also madeleine and jonas were there. carl philip is still at school.

It's winter in Finland too... And from what it sounds like, a similar winter than in Sweden! I'm too lazy to use a hand cream and I've never had a manicure etc. I know all about the cracking skin, that happens occasionally since I have atopic skin. But, I believe it has to do with skin type as well. Greetings from snowy Finland to our neighboring country!

Minister for Enterprise and Energy, Maud Olofsson, tells that Daniel made a very fine speech on Tuesday, when the government formally approved the engagement between Daniel and Victoria.
Afterwards the king invited the ministers to celebrate with champagne. He said that he was very pleased that the Government celebrated the moment with him and his family. Then he presented her future son-in-law for the first time and gave the floor to Daniel. The future prince had asked to say a few words.
Olsson tells that Daniel´s speech touched the guests deeply. Several ministers had tears in their eyes. It was also difficult for Daniel to keep his voice steady as he explained how he wants to support Victoria.
Olofsson says: He is very proud of her. She is a professional working woman and needs an equally professional partner at her side. That´s what she gets now.
Daniel told about himself, his background and his family. And about how he felt welcomed into the royal family. Guests also got to know a bit about his gyms and how he is passionate about public health and entrepreneurship.

Is it too early to speculate on elements of the wedding?

I'm already thinking of how lovely it would be to see some of Crown Princess Victoria's royal godchildren as bridesmaids and page boys!

I'm pretty sure that he will be styled HRH. The official press release from the Bernadotte press department has a few errors (Amazingly, they even managed to spell the Dukedom wrong: Västergörland instead of Västergötland), and my guess is that they took it for granted that a Prince of the Royal House will be HRH as well.

Svensk Damtidning/Victorias ring slår de flesta prinsessors!
Jan Ribbhagen, president of Kurt Ribbhagen AB estimates, that Victoria´s ring is about 1,5 carat and it costs 150000-200000 swedish krones (13200-17600 euros / 16900-22600 USD).

Thanks Boris.
Oh, I go to the RF's website and the mistake is on English version not Swedish.

Btw. Did you know that on wikipedia he is known as Olof Daniel?

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

I thought the same thing. I'm curious what the real thoughts are behind closed doors about Daniel. But at the same time I don't think this family is all that expressive with their faces/body language. Victoria is likely the most expressive and the King is least expressive. Now that others mention it, it is a little odd for them to announce this so early. I can understand them not getting married until 2010 but why announce it. The best reason I can think of is for Daniel to make the transition with his business. I suppose things could have leaked out if big changes started happening with his business.

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?
Why would she copy her parents? To me, a tribute is to choose to get married on the date of your deceased grandparents whom were say married for 60 years. It's not really a tribute to get married on the day your parents got married whom are still alive and celebrating their special day every year it comes around. Just my thoughts. Call me crazy but I would desire my own date not in use in my family, I hope Victoria and Daniel do the same.

Maybe they announced the engagement so early because it gives Daniel time to become accustomed to his new role slowly? From now on he can accompany Victoria to official events, without to pressure of taking an active role.

Yes, that´s probably a good part of it. As I get it real "prince training" (as it was often suggested by the press) didn´t take place so far. He just got some media training, which was also meant to promote his gyms...and with those gyms, he was all busy.

I´d bet the wedding would take place before june 11 as then the soccer world championships would start. A fact, which makes Africa also a hot guess for the honeymoon

Today the king was in Alnarp, but wasn´t really in the mood to talk about the engagement. Instead press spokesperson Nina Eldh did answer a few question. She is thinking the news around the engagement were received "fantastic well" (an opinion poll does say the support for the Monarchy has grown a little)
She confirmed, that Daniel did pay the ring self...
