I'm really looking forward to seeing the press conference today! If it's at 5pm in Sweden then the time will be 4pm in the UK! I think Victoria's engagement ring will include a sapphire with diamonds! I'm still so excited by this news! The engagement announcement was really lovely with the happy couple in the middle and the King and Queen on each side. Having the wedding in 2010 will allow plenty of time to organise such a huge event and ensure that senior royals around the world can set the date aside in their busy schedules and able to attend. I'm sure we are all looking forward to the various threads that will be created such as where the wedding will be and who will design the wedding dress - not to mention will Madeleine be a bridesmaid!!??

Wow! I've never been crazy about Daniel and would have preferred someone else (not that I had any idea as to who), but I'm happy for her, and happy for us, who will get to see a royal wedding. I wonder why they're getting engaged now?

I recall saying on the forums that if Daniel ever married Victoria I would eat a live goldfish. Uh-oh...

Aftonbladet claims Daniel will be HRH Prince Daniel but I'm still not convinced until the court says it. At least I know know that his full name is Olof Daniel Westling.

I'll try to put it in a nutshell what was said in the video. Bear in mind that Swedish is not my mother tongue, but it is the second official language here.

The king said that it is really a special day for them and while it obviously is a big happening for their whole family, he has a feeling it will be even bigger for Victoria and Daniel and it is only the beginning of a long life together for them. The king said that they had learned to know Daniel pretty well and understood he is a fine man who works hard and seriously and takes life seriously.

--------- more to come --------------

He looks so different without his glasses! I love CP Victoria's dress -- the classic cut and the red color really suit her.

It's usual procedure for male consorts to become Prince upon wedding (eg Philip, Claus, Henrik) so Daniel will become HRH, Prince of Sweden, although he could be known in public as Duke of Vaestergoetland (similar to The Duke of Edinburgh).

Not giving Daniel the HRH title is unthinkable and would make him a laughing stock before he is even married.

Continuing my brief translation of what was said in the "official" video by the Royal family.

Queen Silvia said the family is going to accept Daniel in their family with open arms. She described Daniel as being "full of energy and considerate and will be and outstanding spouse for Victoria". To Victoria the queen said "We have full confidence on your choice" (meaning they think she made a right choice).

Then it was Daniel's turn to speak. "Our love has grown strongly during the years. My job is to support the Crown Princess in her important work for Sweden. In time I wish I could contribute myself."

Victoria said:" I am proud to work for Sweden but it is easier when there's two of us. With Daniel on my side I feel secure. And perhaps you have noticed that I have seemed stronger and happier in the past year."
"Now we can begin the preparations to begin something new and start a family."

Daniel said he would do all he can to earn the trust of the Swedish people.

That was pretty much it!

i agree he's a person who has a face for glasses. they gave him the interesting (some would call it an intellectual) touch. daniel is a good looking, smart man but today i think he looks strange, maybe that's the excitement or stress. he looks more like al gore, not like daniel westling.
ANP Beeldbank

anyway i wish both of them the best of best, daniel must be very very much in love, brave and have a lot of confidence to marry the future Swedish queen and become the only male consort of the young royal generation. life won't be easy for him and i hope people will give him a chance and don't make him sacrifice his personality for the job. furthermore i hope that today's appearance wasn't just show and that king & queen will continue to give public back-up for daniel and won't allow the slightest doubt about their support towards him, finallly leaving the rumours about his suitability behind.
