Perhaps victoria gave the gown to Daniel's sister because a gown of this type would be very expensive and why spend that kind of money for a gown that you would only wear once or twice................a very thoughtful gesture....not everyone can afford those kind of outfits

After Bora Bora, they went to New York to see concert of Lady Gaga at Madison Square Garden. Then they went back to south, to Brazil, to meet the relatives of Victoria. Then back to USA: Some days in Colorado and in the concert of Swedish singer Robyn in Boston. There they were looking happy and dancing with the music, according to people who saw them.
And since they arent to known in USA my guess is that the people who saw them were swedes themselves and looked more at them than Robyn

Werent they supposed to be resting? Flying around like that sounds not like resting

According to one of the papers that was linked to here, there were Swedish people during the Lady Gaga concert. Apparently they attracted V&D's attention, because the article says V&D turned around and waved to them.

Aftonbladet tells about the honeymoon:
When Victoria and Daniel arrived to Tahiti/Bora Bora, their friend Bertil Hult was there to welcome them. From Bora Bora they went Boston, and then to the Alpine Area Beaver Creek in Colorado. They have been staying at the luxury home of Bertil Hult. Victoria and Daniel wanted to enjoy the beautiful wild nature with high mountains and the fresh air and recreational and athletic activities.
Beaver Creek has been Daniels and Victoria's special retreat where they could find the peace they sought.
- They have had it as a base and only made short trips on one or a few days, says a source.
They returned many times to Boston, which is also Bertil Hults American base. They went by train to New York to see Lady Gagas concert. Afterwards they met one of Victoria's friends. They stayed in New York a few days before returning by train to Boston and were flown back to Beaver Creek. They also went to Robyns concert in Boston. Throughout the honeymoon Victoria and Daniel have used Hults planes. The court doesnt comment the honeymoon, because they never comment private trips.

From Expressen:
The Kings hard request for Daniel. The King will follow every step he takes.

I have read the Aftonbladet article and suddenly they do not speak about a trip to Brazil anymore. I thought they did so on Friday, just like the other newspapers.

The article is at the paper version of Expressen, maybe they will put in the web later. To me it sounds like a Sunday article to sell a lot of papers without a big story. Everyone knows that the King will follow what Daniel does at his work, he follows his childrens work also.

Indeed. Even though none does actually read Expressen and the less gossip about the RF

Not too happy, that they have decided to get all sponsored by Hult.

Johan T Lindwall strikes again. He reveals the shocking truth that absolutly noone belived in, that Daniel actually have to do hard royal work. Its one of his typical: I dont have anything new to report but i must write something to earn my pay.

On swedish radios show Svensktoppen When you tell the world your mine continue to dominate the top for the 4th straight week.

I think its good they are fully sponsored by Hult. Then the republicans cant object to their trip since its not payed by the goverment.

Yes, but then they will argue, that there are all these rich business people, who catch free advertisment via well-loved (actually) independent Royals.
IMO this talk has actually won over the apanage talk (as the argument saying, that presidents are more expensive, is easy to make)
The king is self earning money. So in theory he could have payed the trip via this.

I do not know what is right or wrong in these tabloids. I read somewhere that Jonas was the king's favorite son-in-law and that the break up between Madeleine and Jonas was also particularly hard for CG.

May I as a foreigner say that the king seemed to have bet on the wrong horse? While Daniel had to turn himself inside out for years, in order to become accepted, without making complaints, being very modest but full of loyality towards Victoria, the favorite fancy lawyer son, of whom the king had such high hopes, was fooling around, probably more than once.

I hope the king will have mercy on Daniel when he makes a 'mistake', he has the heart in the right place and he deserves much more credit. Let the king focus on his son CP and his new girl-friend, instead of putting pressure on Daniel.

I agree with you!! well said. The "working class" boy [if i may use that expression] knew he would have to work hard to be accepted and he did. The end result will be something solid- I think.

The King may have paid for the whole honeymoon. To assume that it was free and all paid for by Hult is pure speculation. Friends borrow and share their various vacation homes freely so nothing unusual that they stayed at someones house rather than a hotel.

He couldn't of been his favourite son in law, because he wasn't married to Madeleine.

These stories about the King watching Daniel's every step when he gets back seem totally ridiculous, The King should be more than happy to have one working Prince in his family, and to say that he is going to come down on him like a ton of bricks if he makes a mistake is showing the King in a very bad light.

Also why should CG focus on Carl-Philip and Sofia, what have they done wrong to deserve his undivided attention?

The entire royal family participates in anniversary celebrations in rebro. But all eyes will be directed to prince Daniel, who makes his royal debut.
- The king demands that Daniel is doing a good job. Autumn is the test for Daniel.The King will follow every single step he takes, said a source familiar with the court.

The other article in Expressen:
Johan T Lindwall "knows" that the kings plan is that the crown princess couple will become the new face of the royal family and Sweden. Daniel is now Prince and his new life is to work at Victoria's side - at all her travels and missions, to encourage and help her. Nowadays everyone at the court believes that Daniel will manage his work - even the most critical voices have long since became silent. The King has planned that the crown princess couple will make several trips abroad. Lindwall says that knowing the King there will be no soft start for them. The King will ensure that they have their days filled with work and official duties. The King is conservative and requires one thing from the new prince: Results. Daniel knows this, and Lindwall knows Daniel and knows that he will not make the King or Swedish people disappointed. He will prove himself worthy of his new title.

The son-in-law was not meant literally. It was obvious Daniel needed to prove himself much more than Jonas.

As for Sofia, if I were the royal parents I would be worried about this.

I know that Daniel will do a wonderful job. He has definately quieted my worries. If he displays himself half as well as he did at the wedding, the King can only be pleased. I do agree with Elisheva that the King and Queen need to be concerned more with CP and Sofia.

From the look of it, no one will be happier to have the newlyweds back from their honeymoon than the papers! I expect to see a flood of articles in the coming weeks.

I have to be honest, though, and day that I'm really excited about seeing Victoria and Daniel in their first official duties as a married couple too. I think they're going to do a fantastic job together and separately. I'm sure the king won't have anything to worry about.
