It was announced today by the Swedish Royal Palace that Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling will wed in 2010!

Princess Victoria and Daniel, the owner of a chain of fitness centers, have been a couple for seven years. They met in 2002 when the popular princess was working out at one of the gyms. The wedding is set for early summer next year.

You can watch the video below. It’s in Swedish but that’s fine with us, right? I do believe I heard Queen Silvia said something about Daniel being “full of energy” and “positive”. King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia look proud, while Princess Victoria and Daniel are the picture of a loving and happy couple. This video is so sweet!


Princess Victoria, who is 31, has told the press that Daniel, 35, knelt and proposed at “Drottningholm, in the outdoors”. She also said:

“With Daniel by my side I feel safe. You have surely seen that in recent years I have grown stronger and happier, and now we can begin preparations to start our own lives and start a family,”

Daniel will be given the title Prince Daniel, Duke of Vaestergoetland.

Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
