Heiress And Graces

by | 21st, August 2003

‘SWEDISH weddings are like buses – and not just because in Ulrika’s case as many people have been on the bride as have been on the average London Routemaster.

And we get Princess Anne!

No, you wait all year for a Swedish wedding to feature in the glossy pages of Hello! and suddenly two come along at once.

For, also walking down the aisle in this week’s issue are Andrea Brodin and Niclas Engsall.

You can be forgiven that blank look on your face for it seems that the couple’s only claim to fame is that Andrea is a close college friend of Princess Victoria, heiress to the throne of Sweden.

And the presence of royalty at a wedding is always sufficient to arouse Hello!’s interest, particularly as Princess Victoria was joined by her brother and sister, Prince Carl and Princess Madeleine.

However, there is a special interest here with Hello! hearing wedding bells for Victoria as she steps out in public with her handsome beau Daniel Westling for the first time.

“It seems there’s no problem for King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia that Daniel’s a commoner,” says Hello!

“According to a friend of Victoria’s, ‘the king thinks Daniel is a great guy – nice, hardworking, conscientious, with no skeletons in his closet’.”

And dull as ditchwater, by the sound of it.’
