A Royal Affair

You'd be lying if you said you didn't love a royal wedding. I think at some point every little girl has dreamed of one day becoming a Princess, being swept off her feet and marrying her Prince Charming. In the case of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden it was slightly reversed. She fell head over heels in love with her personal trainer, Daniel Westling, who goes from a commoner to the very regal HRH Prince Daniel, Duke of Västergötland. They were married in the Cathedral in Stockholm on Saturday in front of 1200 family and friends in the largest royal wedding since Prince Charles married Diana Spencer in 1981. Victoria's cream duchess satin gown with a 16.5 foot train, designed by Pär Engsheden, was paired with the same tiara and earrings her mother wore at her wedding, held on the same day in 1976. A banquet for 500 people was then held at the Royal Palace and was attended by the Kings and Queens of Sweden, as well as other Europen countries including Jordan and Japan.

It's always so lovely to read the tales of how the couples who have their weddings published within WSG fall in love. In the speech Prince Daniel gave to his new bride he recounted the period in which they fell in love. He said, "When Victoria had a long mission to China, that was a month, the night before she should have slept, but instead she didn’t sleep for the whole night and she wrote letters. The next day she gave me a box of 30 letters, that is every day a letter to me". Ohh... how gorgeous! Sigh*
