It is my understanding the Royality to not have surnames - for example Bernadotte is the dynastic name but not a surname. Their grandchildren would need a surname and probably children of younger brothers and sisters, but definitely not the King, Queen, Crown Princess, Crown Prince and their first born children.

German article (SVZ)...generally it doesn´t tell much new. Just the old thing, that Danne is now in the process of transformation for becoming a prince...and that he gets some help with that.
The only unusual thing is, that they say, that Aftonbladet should know from Daniel´s father, that they will marry soon and will get engaged in summer. Hmm, have I missed something...I couldn´t find something like that in Aftonbladet...and wouldn´t Pappa Olle Westling announce the happy news in a guest book? :p

Harte Schule für künftigen Kronprinz

Benimm-Unterricht und Sprachausbildung für den Freund der schwedischen Prinzessin
Stockholm Es ist nicht leicht, mit mir zusammen zu sein", bekannte Kronprinzessin Victoria (27) im schwedischen Fernsehen. Ihr Freund Daniel Westling weiß nur zu gut, wovon sie spricht. Bei Hofe ist er nicht gerade beliebt.

Zu ungebildet sei er, sein Englisch sei schlecht und er komme aus zu gewöhnlichen Kreisen, soll der König über seinen zukünftigen Schwiegersohn gelästert haben. Nicht einmal bei einem königlichen Mittag könne Daniel eine ordentliche Unterhaltung führen, weil dem 31-Jährigen teilweise die soziale Kompetenz fehle.

Inzwischen soll König Carl Gustaf angefangen haben, ihn zu akzeptieren, weil Victoria keinen anderen möchte. Westling soll ihr vor einigen Jahren als persönlicher Fitness-Trainer geholfen haben, über ihre Essstörungen hinwegzukommen. Die Zeitung "Aftonbladet" behauptet nun, dass sich die über beide Ohren verliebte Kronprinzessin bald mit Daniel Westling verheiraten wird und beruft sich dabei auf Westlings Vater. Seit fast drei Jahren sind die beiden ein Paar und die Verlobung soll im Sommer stattfinden. Der Weg zum Glück war für den Fitnesstrainer und die Kronprinzessin mit Hindernissen gespickt.

Königlicher Manager in Schlips und Kragen
Noch im vergangenen Jahr durfte Victoria ihren Freund nicht einmal auf ihre Geburtstagsfeier einladen, weil der König zwar Daniels Anwesenheit manchmal bei privaten, nicht aber bei offiziellen Feierlichkeiten akzeptiert hat. Jetzt durchläuft Daniel Westling ein hartes soziales Training. Durch ein Expertenteam wird er auf die höchsten gesellschaftlichen Kreise und die Staatsoberhauptfunktion vorbereitet. In speziellen Kursen lernt er den Beruf des Kronprinzen. Unter anderem geht eine Sprachausbildung mit ein, die seine schlechten Englischkenntnisse und sein Konversationsvermögen aufbessern soll.

Zwei heimliche Mentoren soll der zukünftige schwedische König haben: Bengt Magnusson, Chef des globalen Versicherungskonzerns "Skandia", und Mats Jansson, Ex-Chef der größten schwedischen Supermarktkette "ICA". Beide sind seit längerem Mitglieder in Westlings Fitness-Studio und haben ihn als Privat-Trainer.

Im Gegenzug für Westlings körperliche Unterweisung sollen die Topmanager ihm in gesellschaftlichen Fragen, wie seiner schwierigen Situation als Freund der Kronprinzessin und seinem Verhältnis zu ihren Eltern, unter die Arme greifen. Westling hat sich bereits einigen Veränderungen unterzogen. Früher konnte man ihn in Stockholm oft mit Jeansjacke und Baseballmütze antreffen. Jetzt trägt Westling Anzüge.

Well I think if Olle would make it public in advance Carl would suddenly stop it with a hell never

Article from Expressen. Basically it tells about the interview for the turkish newspaper. But one part is "new". I don´t neccessarily believe, that this friend is real or close, but I though don´t want to keep this back (from you)

– Hon fann trygghet i Daniel. Han var den som hon kunde berätta allt för när det var jobbigt, berättar en vän.
Även bland vännerna har Daniel Westling haft svårt att smälta in.
– Han är blyg och hans stil kan ibland uppfattas som noncahalant, men det senaste året har det blivit bättre. Men något bröllop blir det inte i år. Tidigast i mars nästa år tillkännages en förlovning, avslutar vännen.

-She has found safety through Daniel. He was the one, to whom she could tell everything, which was unpleasant for her, tells a friend.
Even among (this is refered to Daniels relationship to the king, which should have improved after two years- according to Expressen) her friends, Daniel had difficulties to melt in.
-He is shy and his style can sometimes be described as nonchalant (what a word for the trucker cups ), but this has improved in the latest year. But there won´t be a wedding this year. Soonest next year in March an engagement will be announced, says the friend at last.

Well, I don´t believe in an engagement in March (IMO this would happen earlier...since this is the "trend" in Royal houses) and this let me think, that the friend hasn´t too much insight...but maybe I´m wrong.

At the 25th birthday party of Caroline Kreuger, one of Victoria´s best friends in Nacka strand (close to Stockholm). This was in July 2002.

Thanks for the information Lena! A little off topic here, but are there many places that sell hawaiian shirts over in Europe and are Luau parties quite popular over there?

Daniels first official representation?

There is an article in Bunte which says that Daniel has to be very busy with learning english and good manners and everything because otherwise Victoria won't marry him. The article depends on what Victoria said in Turkey about her non-willingness to renounce to the throne. Nothing really new, but the article said also that there will be soon Daniels first official representation together with the royal family! Do they perhaps mean Victorias birthday event? You can find the article here: http://bunte.t-online.de/c/45/90/21/4590218.html
There are also some photos of Victoria and Daniel.

Hopefully she is choosing the right guy, not just the guy she loves, but the one that is capable to support her as a wife and queen. It is not easy for a man to have second places after their wives, so hopefully he will be better prepared than others who couldn't succeed as a consort. (ex. Denmark's queen's husband)

Victoria and Daniel are on a round trip in the USA. They will celebrate midsummer there tonight (hopefully a guy with a camera will celebrate there as well )
According to Expressen speculations about an engagement of Daniel and Victoria are running wild in Victoria´s circle of friends (and/or acquaintances?). Many expect that they will get engaged in the US...

German article on the one from Expressen today:

Kronprinzessin Victoria "superheimlich" in den USA
Die schwedische Kronprinzessin Victoria (27) ist mit ihrem festen Freund Daniel Westling (31) in die Sommerferien in die USA gereist. Das Stockholmer Boulevardblatt "Expressen" berichtete am Freitag über die "superheimliche Liebesreise" des Paares.

Und fügte neue Spekulationen über eine angeblich dabei geplante Verlobung der Thronfolgerin mit ihrem ehemaligen Fitnesstrainer hinzu. Auch diese solle allerdings streng geheim gehalten werden und sei reine Privatangelegenheit, will die Zeitung aus "sehr gut unterrichteten Kreisen um die Königsfamilie" erfahren haben. Der Stockholmer Hof verweigerte wie üblich jeden Kommentar zu solchen Gerüchten, die gerade in der nachrichtenarmen Sommerzeit besonders üppig blühen.

Nope, you can´t find many hawaiian shirts in the shops. But I think they had a revival some years ago. Also Luau parties were quite popular some years (in the 90ties) ago, so guys should still have such shirts in their closets, and when not them, then at least their fathers.
IMO Hawaii parties are (were) so beaten, that one can expect, that they will get modern again soon.

Ah, you just want more of those "wild" hotel photos (?? was it a hotel lobby they were in? The photos of Victoria and her Daniel in an [awkward] embrace?). ha ha ha.

Hmm, I could say many things about that Hawaiian shirt (*shudders*) but at least he's enjoying himself. I think my dad has a few of those shirts. :o

I don't know about anyone else, but if you go to a foreign country, wouldn't it be better to experience the local 'culture' (yes, I know that the US isn't as different as other countries, but it still it's still different to Sweden) instead of going to the movies (something which you can do at any time)? And anyway, I hear San Francisco is a very beautiful city (a sister-city to Sydney) so there would heaps of nice things to do. Well, I should be grateful it wasn't some concert.

I agree. These days american movies are coming (to be faster then the internet pirates) so fast to Europe, that it really doesn´t make much sense to watch a movie during a holiday in the US. But maybe they needed a break of all the sight-seeing and have choosen some snuggling time in the cinema.
I wonder, how Daniel and Victoria noticed, that Au-pair Maria (the swedish girl in the next row, who had a talk to Aftonbladet) is Swedish. According to her, they acted then much more "low-key"...obviously rightly. Maria, you tattletale- thanks for telling

I live in the San Francisco region my entire life, and there's planty of things to do in the city! Granted, it's not a city like New York City where the restaurants and clubs are open later, but I've never had a problem deciding what there is to do. I agree that the movies are just movies and it's sooo expensive to see one, especially on a date. I believe that last time I went and saw a movie, it was $10 USD a ticket and for 2 medium drinks and one popcorn, it was $14 dollars. I just started to imagine what it would be like to bring a big family to the movies.

One defense for Victoria and Daniel, perhaps they were tired from sight seeing or walking up and down the hills of San Francisco and needed a break.

Also, in SF, always be prepared for the unexpected, so it is not that unlikely to find a swedish au-pair. Also, it seems to me that most of the tourists are from European descent too. The economy must be pretty good over there!
