And then they lived happily ever after...

It has just become official in Sweden, that the Crown Princess Victoria is now engaged to her long term boyfriend Daniel Westling.

It's really HUGE news in Sweden - HRH Victoria is only the third Queen of Sweden (in 1980 Sweden adopted equal primogeniture, meaning that the eldest child of the monarch, regardless of gender, takes precedence in the line of succession. Sweden had previously (since 1810) used agnatic primogeniture, meaning that only males could inherit the throne. Source: Wikipedia), the first Swedish monarch in over 500 years to marry someone Swedish and the first to marry "a common person".

All I can say it's about time! Congrats!
