Victoria of Sweden's gym-owner love to move into royal palace

20 JUNE 2008
Their first appearance together at a high-profile engagement came just a fortnight ago. And now, in a move which further indicates their union is going from strength to strength, Princess Victoria of Sweden and Daniel Westling - her beau of six years - are set to live in close quarters.

The gym-owner entrepreneur, who will move at the start of next month, is to take over a one-bedroom refurbished apartment within the palace of Drottningholm, which is home to his royal love.

Palace representatives have emphasised, however, that the couple will not be live-in partners. The Crown Princess lives in the Sjoflygeln wing, which is a few hundred metres away from Daniel's new apartment in the property's Pagebyggnaden section.
