This is Sweden!

Olle Westling, the father of Daniel, makes his speech of the father at the wedding of princess Victoria and his son, with the love of a proud father, with no notice of this being a royal wedding in live television but with full focus on the spouses. He gives his thanks for the dinner and the best wishes for the couple. Just as it would have been at an ordinary wedding in Sweden. This wedding might be royal but the important thing is love and being human.

At the wedding ceremony the priest talked to the spouses as fellows in everyday language. They may be royal but they deserve being adressed as fellow humans. You can feel the sincerity and warmth through the TV-screen.

I am proud.
