The pair met after a training session at the then-Daniel Westling's fitness centre in the mid-2000s. After a long romance, the pair announced their highly-anticipated engagement in February 2009, with the royal proudly showing off her white gold ring with a round diamond solitaire.

Her engagement ring marked a break from tradition, as previous generations of Swedish royals had sported simple gold bands.

The couple wed in 2010

Victoria looked stunning on her big day wearing a white satin wedding dress designed by Pär Engsheden, which included a V-shaped back, an off-the-shoulder neckline and an A-line skirt.

She had a five-metre train that was attached at the waist of her dress and accessorised with the Cameo Tiara, worn by her mother, Queen Silvia on her wedding day to King Carl XVI Gustaf in 1976.

The couple are proud parents to Princess Estelle, nine, and Prince Oscar, five.
