Yes Victoria was bridesmaid. She and Caroline have been best friends their entire life... they grew up together and were born almost at the same time. I think Caroline´s birthday is just two days or so before crownprincess Victorias

I wasn't sure where to post these but kind of by accident I found some pics of Victoria, Daniel, and even some of Madeleine attending a recent wedding of a mutual friend. The pics are actually from April 14th.

Bridesmaids can be married or single. The Maid of Honor is (usually) one of bride's unmarried sisters, or if she has none, her unmarried best friend. The Matron of Honor is the same position, but a married women if the bride has no single friends or sisters.

Well i belive anyway that there will be a wedding next summer - and i can´t wait.
Well, but then it would be up to Victoria to stand up (it´s not only, that she is dependent from her father, but also vice versa!)...and if I´d have such a father, I´d simply think, he wouldn´t like my choice, and that he would hope, it would end until, I´d have turned 30. And then I´d get stubborn. But that´s only me of course


Expressen´s Sunday news:

http://www.expressen.se/nyheter/1.658471

As it seems Victoria and Daniel have now moved together completely. Daniel is keeping his apartment in the Banergatan, but just for the times, when Victoria is abroad or out of town. If she is around, they stay at her apartment (little house) at Drottningholm.
That should be due to security reasons (Of course ) Their spare time should consist out of cooking together, relaxing and taking walks. In the morning they are going to the city by different cars, but sometimes Daniel is also going with Victoria in the SÄPO BMW.

Nina Eldh is saying "I´ve no comment" (BEST comment for a long time )

Some months ago I had posted news on an author writing a book on Daniel and Victoria. And I said, I´d read it. Of course I did (Many thanks to GrandDuchess for getting it for me)
My expectations were low from the beginning. I had checked the other books of the publisher (BigBok) and it seems specialised on that, what I´m calling “train station books“ Books, you are buying for some entertaining read, but not for broadening your horizon.
If one knows “Felipe & Letizia” and “Silvia von Schweden” by Norbert Loh…that´s exactly, that what I´m meaning.
Additionally the author is jobbing as freelancer for Swedish tabloids, mainly Aftonbladet. If one was following Daniel and Victoria a bit in the past 5 years, one knows, what this means.
These journalists are mostly men, write things down like students essays in primary school, and try their very best to make mountains out of molehills.
And of course we know, that there are some kind of “closed ranks”, when it comes to the ppl surrounding Victoria (and Daniel)
Well, when I had read the book, I knew, that I was right (if only my wedding prognoses would have been also that right in the past )
Nonetheless I try to summarise the interesting things out of

Daniel and Victoria” (A Love Story) by Andreas Utterström

In the official reviews by newspapers many had turned up their noses at the fact, that Utterström was writing the book as some kind of novel. In fact, this was just the case for the first chapter. This one, you can also read (in Swedish) on the page of Adlibris (bookshop)
http://www.adlibris.se/bookbrowser/default.aspx?isbn=918549917X
The book starts with the sentences “Crown Princess Victoria felt confused. Was she really right here?”
Of course the author couldn´t know, what Daniel and Victoria were thinking, when she entered “Master Training” for the first time.
And exactly this makes it hard to believe the things in the first chapter. Which is quite a pity, since it´s the most interesting one.

According to Utterström, it was Victoria, who had a crush on her personal trainer. She booked more and more lessons with trainer Westling. And one day, she took heart and invited him to Drottningholm.
That it was such an intimate place (and not a cinema or restaurant as most other young ppl probably would have prefered it) should have been due to possible curious ppl.
Victoria should have cooked a WOK dish for him. And it shouldn´t have been extraordinary tasty. This information should be based on some kind of anonymous friends, who later invited Daniel and Victoria for dinner. Then Daniel should have calmed them down by telling, that Victoria is no great chef either.

In the beginning Daniel should have thought, that they were just friends. But little by little the relationship changed to an love affair.
Friends should have told, that Daniel seemed, as if he would have just waited for the right moment to jump off and to break up. But things just went on and on.
According to these friends Daniel also behaved a little awkward in the beginning, so as if he would just “play” himself. When they were invited at this dinner of 4, that I´ve mentioned earlier, Victoria was very clinging, had all the time one hand at Daniel and gave him a kiss on the cheek. Daniel should have laughed a little embarrassed.

Clinging, kissing, a crown princess, that threw all conventions over board and hunts for her gym trainer. I must say, that one could read such things in a very fluent manner.
A friend of mine called the book “Housewife porn”, after having read the first chapter. And I had thought: “Well no proven official biography as the thing, the Norwegian court is planing on Mette Marit, but at least something on the level of a Barbara Cartland novel or the SILVIA novels from BASTEI. One can´t always read Shakespeare and Goethe.
And completely wrong, things probably weren´t either. At least I could very well picture Victoria terribly nervous with an IKEA apron in her kitchen, hard thinking, if one should add garlic at a first date with a “friend”
But then the book lost speed very fast and got quite boring. At least for an old “pro” like me.
It was only natural, that Utterström would start at the beginning…so at their upbringing.
For Victoria he used the Ekerlids publications on Silvia and Victoria as source. That are interview books and officially acknowledged by the court. I´ve both. And so there wasn´t much new for me.
One cute anecdote, I though wanna tell:
When Victoria was 6 or 7 year old she went with her parents to Skansen for celebrating the national day. Prime Minister Olof Palme (who got killed in 1986) was also there. He gave a speech, later a little larva fell onto his arm. With the help of the programme he gave it to little Victoria.
But what did Victoria? She released the little larva on the ground. The queen was surprised and asked her, why she did that and told her that it was a gift of the prime minister to her. Victoria answered: “Yes, I know. But he told about the freedom of all human beings in his speech. And that [freedom] the larva should also have”

Of course it was also talked about the dyslexia and eating disorders. And then there was an very extended chapter on Daniel, the first, Collert. Nothing new in it really.
The part on Daniel´s upbringing could have had potential, if Utterström would have had good sources, but apart from Daniel´s Ice Hockey Trainer from Hofors, who thought, that Daniel had no special talent, but tried to compensate with extra weight training, and apart from some sentences on Daniel often having worn NIKE & ADIDAS and having been popular among the girls (He laughed a lot and one could easily talk with him. At the local club for working out, he soon got the nick name “Handsome Daniel”) there wasn´t much to tell.
Even the fact, that Daniel was born on the very same day, the king ascended the throne was not mentioned.
Also the time at Lillsveds sports college wasn´t described in a way, that we didn´t already know. No girls stories. Daniel lived very healthy. Only once a week, he stuffed himself with Pizza, Kebab, cake etc…to push his metabolism (Does sound like an eating disorder, but I guess, that´s how “bodybuilders” and some sports folk are )
His grades were better than in Junior and Senior High school, but he wasn´t much into group work and presentations. He rather prefered the sports part of the education. In the evening the students watched movies or Daniel listened to his favourite band KENT.
Later Daniel left for Stockholm. Benny Johansson saw potential in him, taught him all about administration and one day, they decided to start their own business (all nothing new)...
