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!
One of the lovely posters on our rousing royal wedding live post remarked that Princess Birgitta here, the second of the king's four sisters, sort of resembles a character out of Star Wars, and now I can't unsee it. It's something about the way the tiara is placed in her hair, I think -- usually we see this tiara, Queen Sophie’s Nine-Prong Diamond Tiara, up on top of the wearer's head. It's a little strange to see the Pronger out front and center like this, and I think that's what's making her look a little sci-fi.
Of course, the Majorcan tan probably isn't helping, either. Birgitta, the only one of the king's sisters who didn't lose her title when she married (because she didn't marry a commoner), lives on the Spanish island, while her husband, Prince Johann George of Hohenzollern (from whom she's been separated for two decades) lives in Germany. Maybe, erm, a bit of sunblock, Your Royal Highness?
