It was his first official appearance as Prince Daniel, Duke of Vastergotland. But Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden's new husband looked like a complete pro.

Relaxed and smiling, he waved at crowds as he joined the rest of the Swedish royal family in celebrating 200 years of the House of Bernadotte being on the throne.

And he proved himself the perfect gentleman, holding an umbrella over his wife as they walked towards the steps of Orebro Castle, central Sweden, where they were to attend a dinner.

Daniel's easy and confident manner in the spotlight is something which he has built up over time since his first official appearance with Victoria. That was in March 2009 when he accompanied the Princess – his then fiancée – to her name day celebrations.

Nearly a year and a half later and Daniel is clearly settling into his new royal role after marrying the crown princess on June 19.

He certainly looked like one of the family as he stood with his parents-in-law King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia and brother and sister-in-law Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine for a group photograph.
