It is my understanding that CP Victoria first ran into Daniel Westling at his gym in 2002 when Madeleine persuaded her to join her. With Daniel as her personal trainer it became part of Victoria's holistic approach to maintaining a healthy lifestyle having acknowledged that eating disorders don't just vanish.

Her previous boyfriend was Daniel Collert. They broke up in 2001. He too supported her in her battle against anorexia.

Victoria and Daniel Collert broke up early 2001.
Victoria and Daniel Westling met eachother in 2001 when Victoria went to Daniel's gym.
H.R.H. Prince Daniel - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]

Daniel told at an interview before the wedding that they were first friends and when the press found out in the end of May 2002 that they were a couple, their relationship was already strong. Their dating had been kept secret by their friends and bodyguards.

That's cool, you have corrected my dates and clarified the issue. My only real objective was to point out that while there were indeed 2 Daniel's and that both were supportive.

Bringing us back to the fact that both Victoria and Daniel, for good or for ill, are totally aware of the hidden dangers young royals face and that their experience would give them an edge in supporting Estelle.

This is an assett when guiding a young royal through the teenage years which are totally unforgiving of anything less than perfection if pre-anorexia reports of Victoria being a "tubby" teen with a penchant for hamburgers.

I might be ignorant, but I simply cannot recall any "claustrophobic" royal right now...?! Is it claustrophobic to shield ones justified private sphere?

What "bad matches" are you referring to?! Charles and Diana were certainly badly matched. Joachim and Alexandra? First they were surely good for each other, but later developed in different kind of directions. That´s what happens with some couples! But a "bad match"?
In the 18th and 19th century there were a lot of bad matched royal couples because they had to get married of dynastic reasons only. But today? Most of them seem to get along pretty fine!

Estelle is in Umeå with Victoria and Daniel, who are attending at the inauguration of the European Cultural city. I have put the photos to Victoria's and Daniel's events thread.

OK! Haul out the sugar and spoon it out with a shovel (silver of course), because this kid is seriously cute! Cute as only a small child can be. Cute, adorable, precious and, most important of all, the apple of her parents eyes.

In fact, I have a sneaking suspicion that her "ratings" would equal Victoria and Daniel's together. Estelle Rules!

Love this new video!

I think Estelle is being exposed to public attention and the media in a very sensible and healthy way. She will be in the public eye for the whole of her life and I think it's good for her parents to be getting her used to it under their watchful eye and with their guidance. She is getting used to the attention and will see it as just a part of her life, not something to hide from but something to manage and balance with the private side of her life. She is learning it is normal for her and her family to meet people and shake hands. She saw her parents do it, and then she delightfully shook hands too. (That was so cute! )

Estelle, the youngest fashion icon in Sweden

Since birth February 23, 2012 has heir Estelle has charled the participants and viewers in a variety of public contexts.
- I think it has been handled professionally by parents Victoria and Daniel. Estelle has just got the leeway she should have and been exposed just right, says journalist and royal expert Sten Hedman.

Prinsessan Estelle 2 år - Sveriges Kungahus

She is a happy girl, smiling a lot. Lovely photos.

When Estelle today is 2 years old she finds herself along with Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel in Hemsedal in Norway's mountains.
The family went there on Thursday - the day before Princess Madeleine gave birth to her daughter - to celebrate the birthday child.
- It is celebrated entirely private and will not be noticed externally. She celebrates with mom and dad, says Annika Sönnerberg from the court.
According to Aftonbladet , they stay over the weekend and well into next week.
- Daniel has been out on a guided tour on the mountain today (on Saturday) . The whole family seems to thrive here in Hemsedal. There is plenty of snow and great weather, says an informant told Aftonbladet .
Crown Princess Victoria still has rails around the leg. The crack in the foot has not yet healed. She waits with skiing . Estelle is the ski princess instead.

Good that the press haven't found them.

Nya härliga bilder på prinsessan Estelle! Svensk Damtidning

Grattis på födelsedagen Estelle! « Hovbloggen

Look, how big she has become!

Aftonbladet as 41 photos in a gallery about Estelle's life.
Här är ditt liv, Estelle! Nyheter Aftonbladet

Expressen's royal reporter Johan T Lindwall tells in Expressen live-TV, that Estelle's other nanny and language teacher is called Katie Millington. She has given Estelle english lessions every day since she arrived in the autumn. Lindwall tells that Katie was hired via Bertil Hult's company so that everything could be done as discreetly as possible. Funny thing is that Katie didn't know when she arrived to Sweden, that she would teach english for the future queen of Sweden, she thought she would teach english in a common swedish family. According to Lindwall, Estelle is already quite fluent in english and understands english. Katie comes from a normal family, works halftime for Victoria and Daniel, lives in Haga and studies herself.

Bertil Hult is a close friend to the royal family. He founded the educational and language school company, EF Education First, in 1965.
