Beautiful Princess to marry – her former fitness coach! It is not your traditional fairy tale. But this is 2009 and the young woman who is next in line to Sweden’s throne can be guided by her heart in her choice of husband.
After a seven year courtship, it is official: gym owner Daniel Westling will tie the knot with Crown Princess Victoria. And in a country that has not seen a royal wedding since 1976, the public is excited. “It was time, that was my first feeling,” says this woman, evoking the unlikely couple’s long-term romance. “Well, love can transcend any social classes. It is a good thing that even rich… even princesses, can marry, someone from the normal people.” Having suffered in the past from eating disorders, Crown Princess Victoria now looks set for a happy ending. Her wedding is planned for the middle of next year.
