They've always raised eyebrows for not being the most conventional of royal couples, and now the romance between Crown Princess Victoria and her gym-owner beau is back in the spotlight after it emerged that self-made entrepreneur Daniel Westling has significantly consolidated his financial situation.
Whether the fact that Daniel's business continues to thrive - he's opening new establishments both in Sweden and abroad - will influence the opinion of the Swedish people, some of whom view the match as not entirely appropriate, remains to be seen.
The Yale-educated Princess met her commoner beau in 2002 at one of his own gyms, and they now share a home together. "The important thing is the right people live with each other," the queen-in-waiting has said.
Victoria isn't the only royal to find love through sport. Zara Phillips' own live-in partner is rugby player Mike Tindall, whom she met in Sydney after England beat Australia in the 2003 rugby World Cup.
Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark also found romance at a sporting event, meeting real estate agent Mary Donaldson while in Sydney for the 2000 Olympic Games. The couple were wed in Copenhagen in 2004.
It was a similar story for keen sportsman Prince Albert of Monaco after glamorous South African Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock captured his heart.
