HRH The Crown Princess of Sweden and Mr. Daniel Westling
June 19, 2010
Well, kids, yesterday we partied hardy in the wedding live posts, and today we get to have a tiara fiesta! I've compiled all of the tiara entries for the royal guests at Crown Princess Victoria's wedding to Daniel Westling (now Prince Daniel) in this entry.
The wedding, of course, took place in Stockholm yesterday. The couple has been together since 2002, when Daniel became Victoria's personal trainer. Love blossomed, and on their wedding day, Daniel became royal. During their balcony appearance, Victoria thanked the people of Sweden for giving her a prince.
And now, we'll all just have to wait to see how long it takes before the pitter-patter of little royal feet are heard in Haga Palace!
Another new royal! The Jordanians were out in force today -- this is Princess Rym, the wife of Prince Ali of Jordan (he's on the right). Ali is the son of the late King Hussein and his third wife, Alia -- which makes him the brother of our favorite Ascot visitor, Princess Haya, and a half-brother of the current king of Jordan.
Rym's a fascinating lady in her own right, though -- like Princess Letizia, she was a journalist before she married Prince Ali, working for CNN and the BBC. She's also got degrees from the Sorbonne and Columbia University. I do love a brainy princess!
And I quite like her tiara here, though I admittedly don't know much about it. She's been pictured in this same one several times before, but I don't know the provenance of the piece. Any Jordanian royal watchers reading who can help me out?
