Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and her husband Prince Daniel have denied divorce rumors in a statement released on social media.
The Swedish royals took to their official account to address the speculation, admitting that while they would not entertain any speculation about their union, but felt compelled to dismiss them in order to “protect our family”.
The post read: “It has come to our attention that there is an extensive negative rumor being spread regarding our private relationship. Allegations are spreading about betrayal in the relationship and an impending divorce.
“Normally, we do not comment on rumors and speculation. But in order to protect our family, we wish to make it clear, once and for all, that the rumors that are now spreading are completely baseless. Victoria and Daniel.”
Victoria married Daniel on 19 June 2010 at Stockholm Cathedral. Their nuptials were attended by the bride and groom’s family, as well as a number of royals from around the world, including the Earl and Countess of Wessex.
Victoria and Daniel tied the knot on June 19, 2010, after meeting at a high-end gym that the prince owned.
Their wedding ceremony, estimated to cost $2 million, was attended by other international royals, including Prince Albert of Monaco, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, and the Earl and Countess of Wessex.
The couple shares two children, Princess Estelle, 9, and Prince Oscar, 5.
