Princess Victoria Of Sweden Marries Her Trainer!

| Filed under: Royals RoyceLove Line


Sweden celebrated its first royal wedding in decades this weekend when Crown Princess Victoria married her former personal trainer, Daniel Westling.

Despite her father's concerns over her choice in husband, King Carl XVI Gustaf proudly walked his oldest daughter down the aisle in front of most of European royals.

And with a new bride, comes a new title! Daniel goes from being a boring ol' commoner to now being Prince Daniel, Duke of Västergötland.

Congrats to the happy couple!

    Congrats Princess Victoria and the now Prince Daniel!!!!

    Umm usually I don't comment your posts but now I can't stop myself.

    "Despite her father's concerns over her choice in husband"…UMM what?! What are you talking about? If anything, King Carl XVI Gustaf has only supported her so you have obviously no idea what you're talking about.

    But congrats to Prnce Victoria and Prince Daniel, it was a beautiful wedding and I'm so proud that Sweden have monarchy.

    Thanks to you Perez for posting my tips. Long live the Monarchy, Long live the King. För Sverige i Tiden!

    Straight out of a movie.

    It has really been an amazing day!! I have been crying my eyes out in front of the TV. Prince Daniel made the most wonderful speech to his wife, showing that he truly is a gentleman and worthy the title of being a prince. The love between them is so obvious, definitely worth waiting 8 years for! :)

  7. 7

    Actually, he was the owner of a lot of gyms where she, and a lot of other people who are famous in sweden, are used to train. So he was a succesful owner of a business.

  8. 8

    FINALLY! I cried the whole day I love them :) so so pretty and sweet. Yet, her father was not concerned lately he was supportive and pretty much fine with her choice :) we love Prince Daniel :)

    Victoria has had 'issues' in the past, most notably a bit of a struggle with anorexia. So nice to see she has pulled it together. Truly a Bra Svenska Flicka ! Hejo ! Now, IF only Madeleine can find someone so…trustworthy. Sorry, Jonas, but ya blew it, BIG TIME, by fooling around with that Norska Flicka!

  10. 10

    Good for them! They are beaming with joy :)

    I'm from Sweden and I think Daniel looks like he has mild social phobia or something.. I've never ever seen him relaxed.. I don't think he is right for the job.

    Re: Be-Atch – Norske Vitten Hora ! Poor Jonas Bergstrom never knew what hit him !

  13. 13

    Or, for our Finnish Friends…'Kinnella Hora' !

  14. 14

    Roxette gave a performance in their honour…to bad ABBA did not reunite, just for this once ….

  15. 15

    I hate to be the one to say this (no I don't, haha!) but it looks to me like someone (Daniel) is playing it straight…if you know what I mean… I'm just saying.

  16. 16

    Out of any guy she could of had she choose a gym trainer lol.. I wondr if her sister Madeline gonna marry a plummer?

  17. 17

    Re: jtaylor1231 – He does kinda sorta look a bit gay, but I think he isn't….

  18. 18

    You can clearly see that Daniel does not come from a noble family, his social skills are lacking. I think it is unfortunate that modern day European royal people marry these commoners.

  19. 19

    "Do you Crown Princess Victoria, take this dork to be your lawfully wedded husband…."

    anyway, they seem happy.

  20. 20

    Re: jtaylor1231 – I thought the same thing when I saw this article on another site. He's gotta be gay.

  21. 21

    i love his glasses! very handsome.

  22. Annim says – reply to this


    OMG! Såg precis Daniels tal, kan fan inte sluta gråta! Beautiful!!!

  23. 23

    Re: Valerie! – It's called the "brat-style" and looks extremely gay I know but… we'll blame it on the fact that Sweden is the most metrosexual land of all times!

    I'm sure Daniel is straight!

  24. 24

    He looks very into her. She is playing to the cameras.
    Beautiful attire, and congrats to the happy couple. Py gott.

  25. 25

    swedes are sooo pretty =)

  26. 26

    Yikes! both are fugly. he looks like he could be gay or a molester.

  27. 27

    I agree with "MandelinaSwe" the king had no concerns at all? And Daniel didn't just became a prince and duke, he also became a knight!

  28. 28

    CARL PHILLIP, her brother (who SHOULD have been next in line for the crown, but they changed the law to allow a female to rule, when Victoria was born) is soooooooooooooooo HOT ! Check him out - a real cutie !

  29. hebe says – reply to this


    Grats to Victoria and Daniel!! Beautiful couple and beautiful wedding!
    … aaaand Madeleine ofc ;) YUM

  30. 30

    WAIT WHAT WHAT WHAT??!? A pretty, rich, famous and powerful girl married a guy based on love and personality rather than his looks and bank account size? WTF HAS THIS WORLD COME TO!? :P

  31. 31

    He is totally GAY!

  32. 32

    Re: NookiesWA – I know, right? Good for them. Love has nothing to do with who you are, where you come from, or what you do. If they're happy, then it's no one else's business.

  33. 33

    Re: catlover – Aye, To bad theres alot of girls and guys out there that think completely different :(

  34. 34

    all the people calling him gay are just jealous there not on a honeymoon with someone as hot as victoria

    go danny boy!
    he must got some major game to score a princess
    lmao i wonder what theyve been doing at her training sessions if you know what i mean hahahaha

  35. 35

    aww grats they make a cute couple!

  36. 36

    the glasses make him look like a dork, don't they have contact lenses or Lasik surgery in Sweden?

  37. 37

    Maybe he thinks that after the wedding he will transform himself into a royal Superman, that's why he uses the Clark Kent's look

  38. 38

    She's always seemed so level headed to me. So simple, her riches and the family she was born into hasn't tampered with her ability to see everyone as equal to her. Congrats to her and her new husband. Somehow, I think, this is ultimately what Dianna wanted for her kids, the chance to be normal. To fall inlove with someone because of who they were and not what family they came from or whether the person was Royalty approved.

  39. 39

    Ah, so this is Princess Victoria.
    Very pretty girl.
    Lovely dress. Quite different from anything I've ever seen from the show, "Say Yes To The Dress" @ Kleinfelds in NYC.
    He's quite geeky, but definitely fuckable. He'd be good at it.
    The crown is such a nice touch. Works for me and my love of baubles.

  41. 41

    Yay I saw this on TV!

  42. 42

    Re: Butterfly_1 – it's spelled PLUMBER, you stupid hating whore!

    He looks adorkable! :D They married because they truly love each other and nothing else. Who cares if he doesn't have the so called social skills, or if he comes from a modest upbringing or whatever! They waited a long while and now they'll be together for a long time :)

  43. 43

    my gawd u idiot… that guy looks like a dweeb…u could have done better it wont last

  44. 44

    I'm so happy for them - congrats! And she looked beautiful!

  45. 45

    Congratulations to Prince Daniel and Princess Victoria.
    very beautiful couple. Best of wishes.

  46. 46

    He actually owned a series of gym chains… had to sell everything in order to marry her due to his new lifestyle and responsabilities as a member of the Royal Family and consort to the future Queen.

  47. Merab says – reply to this


    Gosh…He does have social skills (for those who say the opposite above) …btw I heard his speech today. He was good…
    And it´s even better that royals marry so called "commoners" now. It´s better than that inbreeding that often occurred within European royals in centuries. It didn´t do any good…

    but in the end: sorry to say that but …I don´t see the need of monarchy nowadays here…I don´t have anything against Victoria (she is a lovely woman)…I just think that Sweden has to move on…Royals here are unnecessary, get a lot of money from people every year ( for their "job" haha, as they put it to "represent" Sweden) and an old days thing really. Not to say that many think it´s "undemocratic" as a principle itself (even though they don´t have power)…

  48. 48

    I did not even receive an invitation! Normally I get invited to royal weddings and royal divorces all over the world. That's the last time I eat Swedish lingonberry pancakes at IHOP!

  49. 49

    He looks like a closet gay

  50. @v@ says – reply to this


    He's obviously a good trainer. Lol.

  51. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: Loewenstein – Social skills can be easily learned, but sniffy, ingrained, condescending and douchey attitudes are REALLY difficult to kick.

  52. 52

    kollade på bröloppet tills kl 1. Victoria var så vacker i sin klänning och Daniel utstrålade självkänsla och kärlek.

  53. 53

    Perez, there's no need to stir crap when there's none to stir.

    As Re: MandelinaSwe – mentioned, King Carl XVI Gustaf welcomed Daniel with open arms, even made him PRINCE (which has never happend before) so get your facts straight.

    Also, Victoria and Daniel's been together for over 8 years, he may have been her trainer but since the king & queen of Sweden AND our government has given Victoria and Daniel the OK to marry, you better believe Daniel is more than just a trainer.

    Yesterday was a truly beautiful day for Sweden and I look forward to having Victoria as our queen in the future. ♥

  54. 54

    he is a lawyer and use to own plenty of gyms :) hey perez victorias little brother is hotter than c.ronaldo;) just saying ! yummmmm

  55. 55

    and yes daniel looks like gay but every guy does in sweden:)

  56. 56

    About the glasses: They are totally in-style in Sweden at the mo, even ppl that does not need 'em weares 'em!
    About his looks: A typical brat look in Sweden —> he is NOT gay!
    About him being a geek: He used to play hockey, he is an entrepreneur/PT and he just got married to a Crown Princess, he is soo not a geek!

    I watched the whole weddeing yesterday, and it was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen! Good luck to Daniel and Victoria on their future endeavours!

  57. 57

    Well there was talk that they had to fight for their love. It was gabbed about yesterday. Anyway, hope they will be happy. (Almost) Everyone deserves to be happy.

  58. 58

    It was so beautiful! You should have seen the wedding, I cried like the whole time.

  59. 59

    Re: jtaylor1231 – We have this saying "he's either gay or swedish", because a lot of swedish guys who look gay are straight, they're just really into fashion and skinny jeans etc…

  60. 60

    He's not gay, a lot of Swedish dudes are very feminine in their style, wearing make-up and tons of hair product, it's the Stockholm look for sure.

  61. 61

    You'd think they would have made him look a little less smarmy to marry that pretty lady. He looks like he could be interchangable with Scott Disick. What was she thinking?

  62. Reiku says – reply to this


    Half of the city was closed off beacuse of this it was so annoying

  63. 63

    Watched the wedding on tv all day, it was beautiful! The speeches were absolutely wonderful and it was all so perfect! Congrats to the happy couple! Grattis Kronprinsessan Victoria och Prins Daniel! All lycka till er!
    För Sverige i tiden! ;)

    Ps, for you people commenting on him being a "gym trainer", he is a succesful gym OWNER and businessman. And I know his style looks VERY ugly, but unfortunately it's very popular in Stockholm. -.-

  64. 64

    Re: misha- – Yes, her little brother, Prince Carl-Philip is HOT!!

  65. SF90 says – reply to this


    The King didn't have any problems with him and he owned a successful gym, so he wasn't just a personal trainer. I think he also owned a famous golf course, if I'm not wrong.
    Perez if you're gonna write about things in other countries, read that country's news sites and not another one that's writing about it. There are swedish news sites that write in english and have the CORRECT information in difference from this brittish one.

  66. 66

    I think he's totally GAY or wants to be a woman…not that there is anything wrong with that but he shouldn't get married if that's a case. I think it's a sham and a cover up!!

  67. 67

    Re: SaraDM – yeah he is reeeally hot :D

  68. 68

    You can't see in these pics, but her gown was so pretty. The design was innovative but classic, and was age appropriate without being dowdy. She truly was a lovely bride.

  69. 69

    Grattis Vickan!

  70. 70

    he looks dorky, but I bet he's good in the sack (being a trainer and all)

  71. 71

    I love a good ol' royal wedding. How pretty/

  72. 72

    Re: Merab – Do you honestly believe that a democratically chosen representative, a president, would be better for Sweden? Have you never, ever noticed that we can't vote for shit? Our current government is a joke, and when was the last time we sent something to the ESC that didn't sound like a turkey in a soundbooth? If we change our entire system, we're gonna have some democratically elected idiot who gonna spend millions on campaigns and travels anyway. I couldn't think of any better representative than someone who's been trained for the job since birth.

  73. 73

    She looks absolutely beautiful! Congrats to the happy couple!

  74. 74

    "Brat look", huh?…A cummerbund would have classed him up a bit.

  75. 75

    gurls got lousy taste

  76. 76

    I'm normally not a fan of weddings, but this was beautiful and got me teary eyes more than once! I don't remember seeing people that happy for a looooong time. After all they havebeen through, after so many years, finally a day full of love. That is a modern day fairy tale, but a real one.
    And the 30 love letters, one per each day, when having to be apart for a month - thus staying up all night to write those letters, OMG. If that isn't rel love, then what is

  77. 77

    You missed out that your friend AGNES was performing a special song (made for the event) at the end of the wedding ceremony!

    Any pic of that trainer's body naked???

  79. 79

    So romantic and beautiful! ♥'s it!

  80. 80

    Ewww what taste she has

  81. 81

    They look happy and i'm sure she will be a great Queen one day

  82. 82

    Re: WatcherOne – Maybe it is time to learn some of the dress code… difference between semi-formal wear or black tie, which can include a cumberband or a vest, or white tie, which is considered formal wear, and includes a vest and NO cumberband. A royal wedding like this would not be anything but white tie.

  83. 83

    Only reason why I watched the wedding was cuz of the prince, Carl Philip. He is so cute and good-looking.. Okey, not the only reason, but I was a little more happy when he was on the screen.

  84. 84

    the weddding was so beautiful!

  85. 85

    To me Princess Victoria looked head over heads crazy in love with Daniel. And Daniel was just there.

  86. 86

    Wow, she is beaming. Just gorgeous and happy. Him, not so much.
