The jacket ist IMO better, than the things he has worn of late. But the hairdo is still (sorry to say) a style, which was in Germany between 1933 and 1945 not unpopular
I just can't stop to laugh with your quotes Lena!

His cloth are always so old-fashion. Maybe he is a very good person but for me he's just so weird!
But if Princess Victoria likes him he certanly has many talents.

Victoria and Daniel to marry

The court is planning for a royal marriage. A new spokesperson shal be hired, a key person before the wedding. An engagememnt is expected early next year

-You can of course look at it that way, says the current spokesperson AC Järnberg (ME: No wonder they are getting a new one )

Expressen: Really?

ACJ: Yes, you can

What is the time limit?

ACJ: Im hired to the end of the year, that is one way to look at it, Im in the process but not in the inner circle.

A "close friend" of the RF says there will be a wedding next summer if nothing special happens (....) Daniel is accepted by the King and ready to stand in the shadow of Victoria for the rest of his life (kind a sad IMO)

Tarras Wahlberg is expected to be chief of the court for the new Crown Princess Couple (how strange does that sound. kronprinsessan-paret:o ). She will also be in charge of preparing Daniel and his family to meet the international press

They also say that both Norway and Denmark upgraded their informationservices before the weddings. Astrid Versto at the Norwegian court says about an engagemement in Sweden that the interest would be overwhelming

Daniel says: I dont think to much about it but concentrate on my things.

ETW has no comment as she is in China

Wow, that's hot. I'm really looking forward it :) But I wonder, why the current spokesperson is allowed to tell, because other royal engagements were not exspected by public persons in such a "detailed" timetable, were they?

Thank you very much, Larzen, for giving a translation.

Not, that I want to be a besserwisser, but who said, there would be an engagement at the beginning of the year, who? ...

I don´t understand ACJ´s moves at all and I´m just as much wondering as sesam, but I´m happy, that she is as she is. Now we know more (at least I think it´s like this...I don´t think that the court and the involved couple are planning a "trap" for us after 4 years of relationship)

IMO time will show if Daniel will be really in the shadow. It´s quite likely, since Victoria enjoys enormous popularity (of late she was voted as "nicest person in the Royal family"). But it happened before, that the partners of the heirs overshadowed the heir the one or another way...

Translation of a Dagens Nyheter interview:



The Royal Court: “No information whatsoever about a wedding”

Six questions to the Royal Court’s acting Director of the Press and Information Department, Ann-Christine Jernberg, about the newspaper reports that Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling are planning to get married.

How close is a wedding between the Crown Princess and Daniel Westling?
- I don’t have any information whatsoever about any wedding being held. I say as I always do – the day we get to know about a wedding, I promise to tell the media as soon as possible. But I haven’t heard any time plan for an eventual wedding.

Does the Royal Court’s recruitment of a new Director for press and information have any connection to any wedding plans?- No, it does not! We have been one staff short here since Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg became a Court Marshal last fall, so therefore we are recruiting, nothing else. We are not expanding.

How is it that there are so many wedding rumours buzzing around now?
- Of course it does with marriage eligible youths in the house. There will be weddings some day.

How often do you have to deny information about coming engagements and weddings?
- Often! There are a lot of speculations.

How will the procedure be when a wedding will be announced?
- There will be an announcement from the Royal Court. The routines have not changed since the King and Queen married.

Is it not so that you will deny any wedding plans until you yourself choose to make a statement about one?
- I can’t answer that. But I think we can retain the right to notify about it when it’s seriously meant.


The original article (in Swedish) can be read here.

oh jesus, that is what I would call a old photo :) more than ten years.
One would think that in our modern society with all its technology, it would be almost impossible not to find a new photo of someone

I voted Spring/Summer 2006. I've sat back and watched and read... I love CP Victoria to death but I'm really not sure about Daniel. I feel that he doesn't reciprocate her feelings. Watch his eyes... I don't see a lot of love or affection flowing out of them for her. But I could be wrong, and this is only my opinion. Whatever happens I wish them the best.

Like I said in an earlier post, I've watched, read and waited but I can't see him reciprocating her affection. Even little gestures that seem normal for couples are absent. I know he's shy - people have said many times but man, give us something to think you care about this adorable, wonderful woman we admire so much. All I see is CP Victoria doing all the public displays of affection.

I agree with you there Lindy, I hope she's not making a mistake.

Well, I think that Daniel may seem to be a little arrogant and cool, but I am quite sure that he's a very sensitive person inside and only tries to handle this difficult situation with that (clumsy) behaviour. Being the boyfriend of a princess and becoming a prince (or something) is perhaps not the thing he ever dreamed of in his life, but in spite of that he's bearing all the media interest and everything - other boyfriends left Victoria because of that. So he surely knows that Victoria is a wonderful woman - otherwise he would not be willing to marry her. Perhaps he got instructions by court how to treat Victoria in public situations? There will be a reason why she loves him, won't there?

I completely agree with what you are saying (except for the arrogant part). Despite what we, the public, think of Daniel, there is something about him that Victoria loves. And as you said, many have left Victoria because they were not able to deal with the pressures of public scrutiny, so we should admire Daniel for that. He doesn’t seem to be the most outgoing person, yet he's making a real effort. Unlike Victoria, he hasn't had to deal with the media being such a presence in his life before, so it must take a while to adjust to. I may have said mean things about him in the past, but he's starting to grow on me. It doesn't mean I'm his biggest fan, but if Victoria is happy with him (which I’m sure she is), then that’s the most important thing.

Has Victoria said, that former boyfriends left her, because of the public interest and the prospect to work for the crown...or has maybe the Royal couple said something like that...or at least close friends of Victoria (e.g. Caroline Kreuger)??

I dont think anyone really "said it". But most papers wrote that, the reason why Victoria and Daniel C broke up was because he didn´t wanted to live his life in the spotlight as prince

And do we believe now the papers, which are Expressen, Aftonbladet, Svensk Damtidning and german tabloids (except them hardly any newspapers dealt with this topic)?

What I want to say is just, that we shouldn´t forget the "other" factors, which could have led to a separation with Collert (or possible other guys, we don´t know...)
For example
a) Victoria and Daniel C. were then younger. Some don´t want to believe it. But I think this "Now I´ve found THE big love"-feeling is often directly proportional to the age (namely to the "rush hour" of life, which starts at 27 and should end at 35)

b) Victoria and Daniel C. were two Aliens in New York (I´m an Alien, I´m an legal Alien, I´m a Swedish man in New york" ...maybe someone knows this song...it´s a little different though ). So it´s IMO not unusual, that they clinged to each other like a magnet to iron.

c) Both, Daniel C. and Victoria were in therapy then. Couldn´t it be, that they have developed differently. After all the starting situation was different. In the beginning Victoria hadn´t much self confidence and needed maybe desperately someone, who would take care of her...and maybe Daniel needed someone to take care of. But Victoria has IMO made great progress in this 2.5 years in the US...so maybe they hadn´t their "base" anymore after a while. (Dennism would tease me now and would call me again "Lena Freud" )


Maybe I´m wrong, but I think one should also consider other possibilites, as long as the main involved persons don´t reveal more.

I think you´re right Lena....
They met when they were like 15 years old and dated for a long time (was it 8 years?) and that is a long time when you´re a teenager. So its not like Victoria has been "jumping around" (if you know what I mean?) :)

I can only speak for myself, but Im not the same person now, at 22, as I was when I was 15. And if I had met someone at 15 I dont think I would have felt the same thing about him now...
so perhaps it was just that, they wanted different things and went in different directions.

I think they dated from spring 1994 until spring 2001...so that would be 7 years (with breaks of course)
And I think you explained it perfectly. After all this was also a teenager love.
Teenager loves, which the european crown princes also had. Are here ppl saying "well, she didn´t wanted the life in the limelight"? In this connection I sometimes wonder, what would have been, when the princes would have met their current wives earlier and their former girlfriends later. Do you think this would have made a difference? Would they have all married at 24 years or so?

4 The V and D necklace which she "just" started wearing

5 To fire up TRF members who are eagerly awaiting how she will look as a bride, will she wear glasses, ponytail and button tiara, or will she look glorious in a glam dress and the connaught tiara and they will look over the moon in Love...

Hahahaha

Having seen Daniel with glasses as wedding guest, it wouldn´t surprise me, when they would wear ones at their wedding too
And of course she will marry with THE white shoes...and then we could hear (even in Europe) sobs from down under

BTW I still don´t know, why Victoria H-A-S to marry...has the king given a command...Has Pappa Olle said "well, Danne-boy it´s about time, that new Westlings see the light of the day"...is Daniel jealous of Jambo and wants to win finally over the dog with a wedding (after the wedding he would maroon Jambo at a motorway service area )
