Victoria & Daniel: How and When Did They Meet?

Can anyone tell me how Victoria and Daniel met? I am assuming that they met through friends as it seems from these posts that they don't exactly run in the same social circles if Daniel is "a very average" guy.

Since a few years Madeleine is training in Daniel Westling´s gym "Master-Training" and one day she convinced Victoria to go with her to the gym, and there Daniel became her personal trainer...and one day Daniel and Victoria decided to meet privately. But we don´t know why/when/how...but maybe Victoria & Daniel will tell, when they really get engaged

Victoria & Daniel; how they met

When did she start going out with Daniel II?

Wow, there're a lotta' Daniels. I hope she solves her problems out though. SHe looks very much in luuuuuuuuuv :flower:

King C-Yep, I was a bit annoyed when we traveled to Montreal and I didn't get a chance to practice my abysmal French 'cause everyone kept speaking to me in English. I felt really bad...they knew my language, but I didn't know theirs.

AAAAAAAAH, it's so sad how they're having problems because of the media issue. Ah, stupid papparazzi...why don't they just jump in a bush and hide for the next 20 years.. :(

Hello everyone :) I'm not up to speed on Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling. Where and how did they meet? How long have they been dating? I've seen pictures of them but most of the pictures show me that its Victoria that showing a lot of affection and Daniel doesn't seem to be reciprocating. He's ok looking, I wouldn't write home about him :) So can someone help me out and bring me up to speed please and thanks?

Abject apologies to anyone I've offended :)

Hi Lisele!
Daniel and Victoria met when she became a member at the gym Master Training, which Daniel owns. He became her personal trainer and well.. they fell in love.
That was probably in the spring of 2002 and the first time we heard about Daniel was in april/may 2002. And the first photo of them together (and kissing :)) was taken in July 2002 at a birthday party of Victorias friend Caroline Kreuger.

The press have written that he is very shy and doesn´t like beeing in the limelight, that could be why he isn´t very relaxed and showing emotions in public. How it is when ther are alone, we have ofcourse no idea of :)

This spring/summer Daniel has been more open and relaxed towards the press and because of this, speculations that they are to get married next summer has started.

Thank you very much Yennie, I really appreciate you bringing me up to speed :) And if he's going to end up marrying Victoria, he's gonna have to get over the shy part for sure. He's going to be mobbed and photographed and well... that fishbowl existence thing :) Here's hoping he's up for it :)

It really does seem like both of them are truly in love

I'm glad that this generation of royals (and perhaps the last generation too depending on the country) have not been forced into arranged marriages or marriages only within the aristocracy like in the days of old.

Victoria tells at their wedding book "Vårt bröllop" about how she and Daniel met:
"I was wondering what kind of training possibilities there was and went with a friend to her gym. It was small and personal, uncomplicated and had a relaxed atmosphere. I thought also that it had warm and relaxed atmosphere so I became a member. That's how Daniel and I met and we got a very fine relationship, and after some time we became very good friends".
