Today at 2 pm, the Swedish Court formally announced the engagement of Crown Princess Victoria, 31, with Daniel Westling, 35, her boyfriend since 2002. The couple met in 2001, at Daniel’s fitness center. After the wedding, Daniel will be known as Prince Daniel, Duke of Västergötland.

One Swedish tabloid reported this morning that there would be a “konsilj” at the Palace, to discuss and formally announce the engagement, and the news quickly spread to the other newspapers and media.

There will be a press meeting later today, around 5 pm.

The wedding is to take place in 2010, which is a particularly festive year for the Swedish Royal Family, because they will celebrate the 200 year reign of the Bernadotte family.
