Those of you who have been following them for years, you do have a good feeling about them? She and Sweden deserve the best.
I do. He stayed with her despite the King's reservations of his lack of nobility and when the public thought he wasn't "up to her standard". I don't blame him for being reserved! Crown Princess Mary was exactly the same while betrothed to Crown Prince Frederick. It wasn't until after her marriage AND the public started to warm up to her she was more affectionate to the Crown Prince.
I recall the Crown Princess stating she serves Sweden, a role she takes upon with all seriousness. Her comments comes to mind a quote from the movie Ever After "You are born to priviledge and with that comes specific obligations". The question isn't if Victoria would have chosen the Crown over love, I don't think Daniel would have ever put her in that situation! Anyone can tell she is devouted to Sweden and to her role.
