Princess Madeleine of Sweden Engaged

Following in the footsteps of her elder sister Crown Princess Victoria, who accepted the proposal of her longtime love Daniel Westling in February, on August 11, 2009 the Swedish royal court proclaimed that the almost eight-year courtship of Princess Madeleine and Jonas Bergstrom has led to their betrothal.

Meeting with the media shortly after the official announcement at Solliden Palace– the royal summer residence on the island of Oland– the bride-to-be’s beaming smile matched the sparkle of an engagement ring which the princess proudly displayed as the couple told that the prospective groom had knelt when asking for his love’s hand in marriage on June 12th during a trip to Capri.

The third in line to the Swedish throne will have plenty of time to plan for her walk down the aisle, as Stockholm News reports that the couple’s wedding will not take place until after both her sister’s summer 2010 ceremony and the government elections. When the pair are joined in matrimony, Bergstrom will be presented with the title Duke of Halsingland and Gastrikland.
