Swedish princess and fiance talk health, wedding in rare broadcast

Stockholm - In a rare television interview, the fiance of Swedish Crown Princess Victoria said he has made a full recovery one year after undergoing a kidney transplant.

Daniel Westling, a 36-year-old former fitness coach, had his failing kidney replaced with an organ donated by his father, Olle. The condition, which was diagnosed when he was 16, is not hereditary.

"I don't notice it all, I take tests. It is not a big issue," Westling said about life after the procedure, in an interview aired late Monday by broadcaster TV4. "I feel very healthy."

Westling said he hopes to "support the crown princess" in her role and wants to focus on health and youth issues. He said he has been briefed about the palace and its organization, along with Swedish history and political science.

The couple, which met in 2002, is set to marry on June 19 in Stockholm's Cathedral. They will move to Haga Palace outside the capital, where her father, King Carl Gustaf, was born and grew up.

Commenting on the upcoming wedding, Crown Princess Victoria, 32, said it was "fantastic to see the support they had received."
