If you ever had the urge to lick the back side of a Swedish princess, now is your chance. The new commemorative stamp of the HRH Victoria and husband-in-waiting Daniel Westling has been unveiled. There’s also a silver and gold coin up for sale at face value (unlimited edition…don’t buy hoping to make a killing on the memorabilia.)
The happy, lickable (and tossable) couple, already clearly stuck on one another are are set to make it official on June 19th.
I’m not a big royalist though I honestly couldn’t care less if Swedes want to hang on to their royal traditions. Actually, Vicky and Danny promote more of the normal side of their lives than the flip side of pompous blue-bloodedness. Daniel is a very common Swede and while Princess Di was thoroughly medically examined to establish her “purity”, the bridal couple will only be wearing white as a tradition rather than as symbolic expression of chastity. They’ve been playing castle for several years now.
Poor Madeleine, the “other” princess and Victoria’s baby sister just had to call off her engagement (TL article). Her fiance, Jonas, never got the memo that affairs were only allowed AFTER the wedding. Maybe Madde and Elin (Tiger’s wife) might be able to comfort one another.
