The announcement was made after King Carl XVI Gustaf gave his consent to the marriage after obtaining approval from the government, according to the Constitution.
The media were invited to meet the Crown Princess and Daniel Westling on Princess Sibylla’s floor in the Royal Palace for a photo opportunity and ask a few questions.
