Article about how quiet Daniel was. It probably wasn't his choice, in my opinion and he probably needs some time to get used to his new job.

I agree, it probably wasn't his choice.
For this first visit abroad he was probably advised to observe and learn. Fair enough for a first trip: The palace is being very careful , concerned of a faux pas or any mistake. The downside of this cautious approach is that it may reinforce the image of Daniel as someone who is out of place in this princely role.
I hope they will find some project or cause for him to lead soon, otherwise he may get bored...

In American Football, when someone carrying the ball is knocked down, everyone piles on top of him. This is what is happening to Prince Daniel. His job is to accompany CP Victoria on official visits. He is there to comfort, support, and protect her. He does that very well. He wasn't meant to put himself forth just yet. The non-royal Princesses were all given time to learn this and are now comfortable with doing solo visits. We can do no less with Prince Daniel. I think he performed exactly as expected. We need to be more supportive while he learns his role.

I think I read somewhere that CP Victoria has a new stylist. Her manner of dress has changed from "Yawn" to "Wow." Her outfits are younger looking, more modern, and very flattering. Also, her make-up is much prettier. Even her hair styles are more pleasing. We cannot chalk this all up to LOVE. Who is responsible for this remarkable change?

I think Tina Tönqvist was mentioned as Victoria's stylist lately.

Victoria and Daniel (Escort and Consort)

HRHofNothing:
I agree with you, I have been saying this for years, Daniel has a forced smile and it does make him appear retarded. The speech he gave at his wedding tells that he is intelligent. At his first official visit to France he did an excellent job as escort and consort. He has to change his smile and stare. He has been exposed to some of the Royal families of Europe, the government officials of Sweden and "people of all walks of life" at his former business. He should be relaxed amongst people.It is about time he shed that faked smile if not he will soon come across as boring. He seems to be good for Victoria since their wedding she shines like a "morning star".

To use the term "retarded" about someone is a much more serious offence than not having a smile that is acceptable to you.

Retarded? Are you sure you have chosen the right word?

Very harsh to call Daniel retarded. Hope the wrong choice of word was accidental.

Retarded? I really hope that was just a very wrong choice of word...

I do like Daniel, but at this trip it became very obvious that he looks very stereotype, with the same facial expression that is a forced smile thats almost a mask. The mobster hairstyle and choice of glasses adds to an unfortunate look beside his hyperactive wife, when it comes down to gestures and mimic.

Whether he is intelligent or not I dont know, one speech at the wedding that might not even be his own wording in some parts isnt something that I would judge on. I hope one day his own personality will come through and that he hasnt gotten into something that is really not his and will finally take a huge toll on him for the sake of being with the woman he loves.

Well, in the speech he was talking about something very important to him (his love for Victoria) but I don't think we should expect something like this at other official occasions since he probably won't find the issues quite so inspiring.

Daniel's smile doesn't seem to have changed from years past to now, so why comment and hope that it will at some point, <miraculously> change?

Honestly, he doesn't seem uncomfortable to me...he looks like himself. He seems to smile at the appropriate moments and to be listening intently to what is being said or what is going on around him. Nothing wrong with that. He appears to be a very contemplative and thoughtful person if you ask me. Now, that may not be true, but from appearances, that is what I gather.

He's still in the learning process as he didn't grow up royal. I would imagine he probably is concerned about doing and saying the right things as this is new to him. I get the impression that he's not 100% comfortable yet in his role. In time, he will be.
