Are there steps to becoming a prince by marriage? And if there is I'm guessing it goes something like this:
1. Etiquette
2.how to wave?
3.formal speech
4.what to do in certain situations
5. Posture?
6.a certain way to smile?
7. How to address other royals and monarchs
Stuff like this,much like princess lessons but for a man. But pretty much I find that Daniel is doing a good job and is calm and professional when at royal events or at meetings.

Always remain a pace or two behind your wife, to add to the list.

Pardon my ignorance but does he really have to do that?

I don't know if it's still the custom now with modern royal couples, but I was looking at it in terms of Prince Phillip with the Queen of England. He's always remained a pace or two behind her in ceremonial occasions as a mark of deference to her position, so I just threw it on the list here.

In most high-profile political couples/heads of state the "famous/important" one usually precedes the spouse and definitely when escorting a visiting dignitary/head of state while the spouse obliges for the visiting spouse. At the very least, the couple would walk in together and then the "important" one would proceed first followed by the spouse. This seems to apply with most couples discussed here. The only exception seems to be in Denmark, where Henrik usually keeps to Margrethe's side and Mary frequently charges ahead of Frederik.

Thanks for the protocol explanation, something then that Daniel would definitely have to adopt in his role.

Hasn't he already mastered the protocol?

I'm sure he has; I was just referring back to the list of steps that initially started this discussion.

I would say that prince Daniel have well mastered the ability to speak in public, for example the press conference after the birth of the little princess. He speaks more easily in public than his father-in-law.

I only discovered Daniel about a year ago, I think it is very brave of him to have stepped into this role to be with Victoria; not only the freakin attention but the people staring at you and knowing you are second to your wife and thinking you are a just there to get her pregnant. He has always given me the impression of being rather shy. At the press conference discussing the birth of Estelle he seemed more relaxed and confident than he did during the engagement announcement. So whatever lessons he has had seem to have been working. Good gracious I can just imagine the difficulty in learning about the geography and Sweeden, then again perhaps he has more knowledge of these places than someone like me who still can't name all the states in the US.

No, we don't teach much geography any more. It's sad.

I learned geography in highschool. I was fairly good at it, but never bothered to learn anything about Europe except it was a continent.

And it's not just geography, but also the state capitals. It's a shame that many students don't even know that the city of Albany is the capital of New York state, for example. It's not New York City, even though many of its residents would like to think so!

How odd. I was educated in England and Europe. I had to learn all 50 American states and their capitals. Of course we also learned European geography, as well as the rest of the world. It was more than just their names and capitals, we had to learn about their economies and politics/history as well. I guess it was to prepare us to know the world we would have to do business in.

Check Perfect manners and the model of a futue consort in public! In private I suspect their relationship is a little more equal.

2.how to wave?
Check. Seems to have finessed that at the media call after the birth of their daughter!
Quote:
3.formal speech
Check. See No 2
Quote:
4.what to do in certain situations
Same again plus during his increasing solo engagements
Quote:
5. Posture?
Pretty damned good from what we seen in the media
Quote:
6.a certain way to smile?
I think the wedding and the aforementioned media briefing certainly showed how well he smiles
Quote:
7. How to address other royals and monarchs
Check. Doing OK with the in-laws. I'm guessing other royals and monarchs would be a cake-walk after his father-in-law!

I think his public persona has been raised cosiderably during the engagement, dream wedding, tear-jecking speech at said wedding and how he aced the media call after the birth of their daughter.

Victoria seems to have found the almost perfect man to walk beside her in life as a husband, father and consort. Check out the first photo of Victoria, Daniel and Estelle walking in the park! It's such a loving and tooth-achingly sweet picture!
