The Swedish Crown Princess Victoria is set to tie the knot with Daniel Westling, her former personal trainer, in the country's long-awaited royal wedding.
More than 1,000 guests, including royalties from around the world, were expected to attend the ceremony in Stockholm Cathedral on Saturday.
Security was tight in the capital, with 7,000 security personell deployed, the biggest security operation ever in the Scandinavian country.
The future queen's relationship with Westling, a commoner from a small town, has been under close scrutiny since it got known to the public eight years ago.

I loved the fact that the hoo-ha in Sweden is over the gender equality issue. (Gasp) The princess wanted her father to walk her down the aisle. Maybe they are sublimating the personal trainer thingy:)
There was no other source for this besides Al Jazeera? I’m of Swedish decent and so this interests me, but sorry, I’m not giving that site a hit.
Prince Charles is living proof of the ravages of incest.The Brit royals should have tried marrying outside the family generations ago.
It makes sense - that is a Crown Victoria, right?
Oh, sorry - I didn’t think to look elsewhere. I didn’t want to engage in profiling, lol.
Party planners and personal trainers. If you want to marry well - those are the professions to look into.
The medium is the message.
Feel free to profile away. :~) FReepers prefer it!
That dang King of Monaco started it all when he married a Hollywood starlet instead of good blood.
Yeah. Charles shouldn’t have married that kindergarten teacher’s aide, Diana.
Although, in both cases, at least they married someone who had a paying job.
There was always the German prince of some small principality; it worked for Queen Victoria, hee hee.
The whole idea is that the dad, who raised her, treasured and guarded her her until now is now turning over her hand, in trust, for another to treasure and guard. Has nothing to do with dominance.
To cut the father out of it is an insult. She wasn't born and raised in a pod.
I don't suppose it will be long before they try that cr*p over here. I, for one, will defend tradition loud and clear. And MY granddaughters will proudly have dad escort them down the isle.
I am sick unto death of these screwed up feminists that haven't a clue as to real family. Take your stupid gender-neutral feminists and it's proponents and take them on a long march off a short pier.
(I was living in California way back when the whole inane "feminist" movement started. It started there, and believe me, there was nothing 'feminine" about those gals.)
Queen Victoria’s family line came from Germany. I think it was the House of Hanover, before it was renamed Windsor, to sound more British. I wonder how closely related Victoria and her German prince were.
Princess Victoria looks remarkably like Gretchen Wilson.
