Princess Victoria of Sweden marries Daniel Westling, her personal trainer
The couple met in 2002. Westling is a gym owner who now goes by the title of Prince Daniel, Duke of Vastergotland. Victoria was given away by her father and mother, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, who were married exactly 34 years ago to the day, making this Sweden's first royal wedding since 1976.
Sweden's monarchy has no political power, but the king or queen
represents the nation and greets foreign dignitaries. Victoria is next
in line to succeed her father, so eventually she and Prince Daniel will
be Queen and King of Sweden.
It's certainly funny but we gotta say -- marrying your personal trainer beats the hell out of the old days when people married their cousins.
