Updated:10.50am

A poll published in newspaper Aftonbladet indicates that Daniel Westling, the man set to marry Crown Princess Victoria on June 19, enjoys great support among Swedes. A full 91 percent of those surveyed said that it’s good that the princess marries “a man of the people” and 75 percent think that Westling has a right to the title of prince despite his commoner roots.

On Wednesday it's a year to the day since the royal couple announced their engagement, sparking wedding fever in Sweden. Eighty-one percent of those interviewed by Sifo Research & Consulting said that they had a positive attitude towards the royals.
