Yesterday, on February 24th, the Swedish Royal Court announced that the Crown Princess Victoria was to be marry in 2010 with her boyfriend and former fitness trainer Daniel Westling. Victoria, 31 and Daniel, 35 have been in an relationship for 7 years. Since the wedding is to be held in the summer of 2010 it gives the court 18 months to prepare, contemplate the wedding dress of Victoria and complete the guestlist which will include European and the worlds most prominent guests.

According to the Swedish constitution Victoria must ask for the kings approval for the marriage, who then has to call to a cabinet council where the government gives there approval. This was done in a hurry on Tuesday morning, just before the court announced the engagement.

After the wedding Daniel would assume the title of Prince Daniel, Duke of Vastergotland, but he will not be in line to succeed the Swedish throne. This is because of the fact that Daniel is not of either royal or noble ancestry.
