do they really coordinate their engagement with other major celebrations at court? I can't imagine Daniel waiting to buy a ring because his future father-in-law turned 60, that would be terribly un-romantic ...

I don't think either of the pair have been ready for marriage but hopefully they will be next year. Let's hope there is a Swedish Royal wedding in 2008!

They look so at ease in each other's company. Nobody knows why they would wait to get married, maybe they want to be certain they can live together for the rest of their lives. Perhaps Daniel is nervous about his future role, I know I would be! For all we know they could announce an engagement tomorrow!

I think it has taken Daniel Westling along time for him to adjust to beeing in the public eye and having the media look into his private life and business and being followed by photographers. But it is better to have taken that bit extra time for him to be 100% per cent certain that he can live that type of lifestyle for the rest of his life.

why is that unfair? Victoria's own father, Carl Gustaf, knew early on he'd found the right woman, yet dated her for over four long years before tying the knot. And lived happily married ever after.
And anyhow how do you know they don't know? Maybe <they> know what they want out of each other in the future, but haven't shared it with 'le peuple'. Good for them, I say. I mean, who or what came up with the pedantic rule that states that after over a year of 'dating' someone, you either have to make plans to get hitched or else dump your partner? Is there some law somewhere that dictates this?

Don't get me wrong - I love royal weddings. With Victoria and Daniel though, it seems like they're a great fit and I think they're in it for the long haul. Perhaps they're in no hurry to get engaged because Victoria understands the sacrifices Daniel would have to make. Unless I'm mistaken, he would have to give up his entrepreneurial career if he were to marry Victoria and so maybe Victoria wants to give him the opportunity to meet his professional goals first.

Maybe Daniel could keep his gym for a few years after marriage? But not long-term? But then again I don't see why he can't keep his business going after marriage to Victoria after all then people could accuse him of living off his wife if he doesn't have an income coming in.

Does Daniel have to ask permission to marry Victoria? I know it is courtesy and tradition to ask her father's permission but what about government. Or is it Victoria needs permission, same as the Princes of Orange need permission or they lose their places in succession?

What would happen if King Carl Gustaf said no?

It´s pretty much as for everyone else. Victoria could ask him or she could ask her. In both cases it would be expected, that the king would give his "ok". After such a long time of dating, it could be easily, that the king already had a talk to Daniel and signalised, that he would agree. It wouldn´t surprise me, if Victoria and Daniel would be already informally engaged with a master plan in the back.
If the king would say no, Victoria could accept it and could go on with her search for a partner. Or she could react the stubborn way and could threaten to leave the throne behind. But if she would make this true, the king would seem like the ******* of the nation and he wouldn´t have any working base anymore.
After all Daniel is a well-behaved citizen and the king self is married to a commoner.
And that´s also the reason, why I´m thinking, that the talk to the government would be informal and there wouldn´t be a big fuss. As I´m getting it, it´s not Daniel´s business (in the sense of calling the PM out of the blue...asking for a date), but something between the king or court and the government around the time before the official engagement. Possibly Daniel and Victoria would then meet representants of the government.
There would be only more investigation, if the possible prince would have a dark past.

It has been a couple of months since I've been on TRF and I just knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I would open up this thread or another sub-forum and find news of an engagement between the two of them. Come on!

I say the same thing, Come on Victoria and Daniel! All of your friends is married and most of them are alreasy parents or will be parents at short. You are in this summer 30 and 34 years old so it is time to left the youth now! But it will probably not be this year because none of them has time over to that as the court has said.
But I think they are already planning for a marriage next year. The much more friendly intonation from the royal court in media indicates that it is something more than before who is going on.

Yes? To me it still seems, as if the for the court a wedding would be as absurd as frying Victoria in a deep fryer
And some pro-Daniel & pro-wedding words from the king I haven´t heard yet either.
Well, I´d guess in summer with the birthday and hopefully some interviews, we would know more...at least I´d hope so...then again I´m used to my hopes not getting fulfilled after all the years and false alarms

What exactly is she waiting for? I'm sure she feels pressure to find a husband that will make a good Prince Consort and wants to make sure that Daniel is the one she wants to be with for the rest of her life. But they've been together for what 5+ years and she's gonna be 30 this summer, i think she should know by now whether or not she wants to be with Daniel. B/c once she gets married people are going to waiting for a pregenancy announcement soon after. I know her father and the people of Sweden must be getting impatient hell I am too I want to see a royal wedding for crying out loud!

Thats true enough. She has been with him a long time and I'm sure she loves him very much and is ready to marry but maybe she isn't. Victoria doens't have normal relationships, she has duties and state visits. She can't just go round to his place and see him when she feels like it. Plus even if she is ready to marry him, she still has to wait for him to ask her when Daniel feels the time is right

For Daniel it will never feel right. He simply has to sacrify too much and doesn´t win much. And he has no biologicial clock ticking either.
Sometimes a girl has to blackmail a guy...or it will lead to nowhere. Many guys aren´t very decisive...and live more in the presence, while girls rather live in the future...and plan...and plan...and plan...until their brains are smoking. At least that´s what my experiences are But with Victoria I´m sometimes having a feeling, that she has dropped this planning side with dating Daniel W. They seem to have arranged themselves pretty good with their little concubinage...enjoying the separated work and the nights and vacations together.
Well, who could blame them. But maybe Madame shouldn´t then come with statements like "throne over love"...in this matter this spiteful little man called Penafiel isn´t completely wrong

Oh yes they are more open about this question then before. Not to the extent that they answer yes or no about a wedding but they can discuss the question whith the media and that has never happen before.
And you will never hear some pro-comments from the king about his childrens partners before the wedding at all according to himself. He will never comment on them at all before the wedding.
I dont think it is something negative whith that, I think he just dont want to disturb their relationships.

Really an unimportant thing but it is a thing we (not you lena!) often forget, Only the fact that King Carl XVI Gustaf is married to a common will never mean that he will allow his children to get married whith anybody.
He has his demands and expectations on his childrens partners and that is good. Even if it looks like he has fully accepted Daniel, Emma and Jonas so we can´t know that before an engagement is presented.

Might be quite possible that she never marries (Daniel). For the reputation of the Swedish royal house an unmarried Queen might be much better than one who is married to the "wrong" man. I could imagine specially Silvia won´t agree that Victoria marries a man like Daniel. It´s IMO still a big difference whether a male King marries a commoner or whether a female Queen marries a commoner. So the argument that C-G married her mother might be an argument of Victoria´s that will not be accepted. And as we know the Swedish monarch´s position is very low profile and that´s one reason why he should be married to the fitting partner not to undermine this position even more.
I can imagine that Victoria got already used to the fact that Daniel will keep being her boyfriend until the end of days....

Wow, that's pretty deep. If that were to truly happen, it rings true with the saying of duty before love. If she were to stay single then the crown would pass to her brother's line. If that's the case give it up now! However, I personally want to see Victoria as queen of her country.

Somehow I could also imagine, that it´s actually for Silvia harder to accept Daniel than for the king. But that´s just a vague feeling...an idea.

Hmm, but PR-wise little children close to the throne and some public love are so precious, there´s nothing better than that. I´m a Royal watcher for about 10 years...and I remember the times these boys...Willem, Felipe, Frederik...were (esp. for foreigners) all considered as boring and only specialists were into them. And now look, what we get to see these days around the Danish Royal Family or the Spanish one. Then e.g. the Swedish RF seemed generally more interesting, because they were about 10 years younger and still in their teenage years.
And then there´s additionally of course the thing, that probably also as private persons the SRF would want children or grandchildren. I guess at the moment all are pushing a decision a bit away. But one day, there will be one...I´m sure. We won´t see 40 year old Victoria with her 44 year old lover Daniel...at least I´d hope so

I hould have liked another kind of guy for the Crownprincess, but since it is now a looongtime that she is with Daniel, it should be time for her to marry. Princess Victoria is very jolly and nice, and I think she will made a wonderful mother.
