Unhappy Poor Daniel

What a great "friend" a true friend would not do that. Unfortunately if Daniel becomes Princes Daniel then he will have to get used to things like that.

These photographs show Daniel's true colours - a nice, joyful man. Now we can see why Crown Princess Victoria likes him so much.

gita > i agree

what's so offensive about those pix ??
i can't see he needs to be embarrassed about those.

drinking a few beers isn't exactly a criminal act.

if he was using drugs or being violent that would be offensive.
or if he was a member of the republican movement

I was quite impressed with the picture of Daniel at the King's birthday.

With slicked back hair and glasses the same colour as his hair .... I was left with the impression .... "fashionable".

In regards to glass frames and colour there-of, I'd say Daniel has more sense than I what I saw last year with Victoria and her low wide glasses.

Daniel and some of his colleagues came to my office last week. Since his new "Balance Gym" is located next to my office, they would like to get us as customers. However, they spoke about the gym (which sounds very nice) and about training and what you should eat and those sorts of things. He spoke with quite an heavy accent and sounded a bit "dorky" but he seemed very nice and made everybody laugh.

Cissan,
It is amazing that you had an opportunity to observe Daniel and come to your own opinion about him. I love when someone has this type of experience and shares it with fellow royal watchers. Good for you !

Daniel & the Defence....

This week, Svensk Damtidning has a guide for Daniel Westling into the wit & etiquette of royal life. One part of it is the issue of honorary military titles and positions, were they ask if it’s likely that Daniel would get one if he and Victoria will marry.

The answer seems to be no, probably not, but Christian Braunstein, lieutenant colonel, from the Defence’s council for traditions, doesn’t give a definite answer. He’s hesitant that it will happen in our day, if it’d been 30-40 years ago it would’ve been different. But he adds that for practical reasons, it would be possible for Daniel Westling to receive a honorary insignia in the Defence, just because it would carry significance for relations with other countries, for state visits etc.


Montage by Svensk Damtidning.

When did we last see pics of them together? At the birthday party for the king?

All the world is talking about paparazzi - does that mean that if there aren't pictures, the couple is not together any longer?

The last pics of them together were published in early december 2005, later Larzen scanned 2 pics from a Norwegian mag showing Victoria and Daniel on Christmas skiing holidays. But they weren´t pictured in one frame.
We have though seen several pics of Daniel...e.g. on the way to the King´s private birthday party. But I wouldn´t give much on that, since other friends were present as well. An itch in my little toe does say me, that there´s something rotten in this relationship...
Well, I guess we will get to know soon, if he travelled to Öland for the birthday or not...

New pic of Daniel in Båstad (From Aftonbladet.se) Can´t help...he looks as if he could say any second: Buy a membercard, or me and my "brothers" will fix a barbell around your feet and will throw you into the baltic sea...

That's a feeling I share. I mean, the princess reaches an age where she should be thinking about marriage and children. It is more difficult for her doing both: being the heir to the throne and being wife/mother - I agree with the queen in this aspect. And it's getting more difficult with each passing year. Don't tell me that her parents don't realize this as well.

So IMHO it's either deciding to marry Daniel or to end the relationship - she simply doesn't have that much more time if she doesn't want to marry Daniel. She'll need someone else and has to start looking for somebody (amybe that's what her "social studies" were all about ) and finding her future spouse soon. In this context I really wonder why there are no longer pics of Victoria together with Daniel...

Or we'll see Carl Philip marry Emma, so that the Royal line may go via his children while Victoria stays unmarried, but with boyfriend.

I think that the reason we don't get as many private/paparazzi pictures of the Swedish Royal Family as we do of the other European Royal Families, is because first of all - the Swedish media is rather lazy (it feels like most of the journalists do their job via their desks, and they love to take news directly from telegrams from the news bureaus, instead of writing their own stories), and we don't have paparazzis in the same way they do in continental Europe. It's a new phenomenon here, we don't have a group of paparazzis following the royals or celebs, but whenever there are those kind of pictures - it usually comes from a press photographer who had luck or wanted to make an extra buck, or then from foreign paparazzis.

Also, the Swedish royal children aren't as interesting as many of the other Royal Families in Europe currently, because they've had the same partners for years and years, they lead quiet lives outside of their duties, there are no big scandals - and there haven't been any royal engagements, weddings and adorable children to follow. And that's an important factor to have paparazzis around, I'd say.

You almost made my heart stop for a second there! I hope to God that won't happen, but I don't think it will either, Victoria loves children. Maybe she needs a little reminder that she's gonna be 30 next year... Also, an unmarried Crown Princess and then Queen, that would be very embarassing and not seen as normal. No matter how harsh it sounds, being the Heir does not only include inheriting the Crown, but also producing heirs.

I think there are paparazzi photos taken, but they arent that interesting so the magazines never publishes them. When I had access to alloverpress there were new paparazzi photos almost every day, and not one of them was ever published in a magazine as far as I know...

so I think its a mixtue of lack of interest from the magazines (+ perhaps to expensive photos?) and the number of proffesional paparazzis in Sweden
