I believe Victoria's choice will prove to be an excellent one.
Swedish blood...didn´t know, that it exists. So we have blue blood and blue-yellow blood, interesting

Of course a Monarchy would have also survived a foreign man, if he would have had the right personality. Or it would have not survived, if the financial, political and economic circumstances wouldn´t have allowed it.
I can´t think of any example of a Monarchy, which got abolished, while the ppl were living all rosy lives with lots of wealth, happiness and democracy...

Commoners? Someone called us 'commoners'? At least here in Nordic countries even us commoners are so extremely royal that you don't need to look very far in our family trees to find nobles and royals by the dozen! I am quite sure I could trace my family all the way back to Charlemagne if I tried - and the people in between aren't exactly trash either!

Someone asked "aren't we all humans". Well, some of us are partly extraterrestial (and I refuse to comment this on my behalf) but I don't think we need to discuss that. Then of course there are those people who feel that the origins of royals are in the stars (or star systems) in which case we should really be asking questions like "should the shapeshifters be marrying common humans" or "how much alien DNA makes one a royal"... Maybe the "blue blood" should be called "green blood".

To get back to the subject... Don't you just love how the Swedish newspapers come up with a new "Victoria & Daniel" -news story every day since the engagement? I'm hooked now on reading about the two going on walks, planning the wedding etc. Oh, and the newsstory today? The couple held another party to celebrate their engagement, the fourth so far...

Victoria and Daniel celebrated their engagement last night - again. Daniel had rented the entire exclusive Opera Terrace for a lavish dinner.
Daniel had invited to the celebration a large part of Sweden's business elite - all members of Daniel Westlings exclusive gym Master Training.

Thanks for the English translation! I'm really happy for both of them and Victoria will make a spectacular bride. She seems very very happy and I'm sure her parents are ,too.

Wonder when we shall see Daniel´s parents for the first time
I prefer all family members on a nice group photo like in Spain or Norway on occasion of such an event
But I can also imagine that his parents want to be in the limelight as little as possible

I do not like Daniel Westling very much, but if Crownprincess Victoria does really love him, I think it matters a lot. He'll be HER husband after all, not mine. In any case, I'm glad they're already engaged. Hope he could be a good, discrete consort.

And yes, I agree: it's a good thing he is Sweden.

Vanesa.

There are a lot of anti-Daniel Westlings for some odd reason.

Anyone is liked by certain persons and disliked by other persons. Daniel Westling is no exception to that fact of life.
