A new royal baby is on the horizon.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is expecting her first child in the spring, the Swedish palace has confirmed.

Victoria, 34, and former personal trainer Daniel Westling, 37, got married just over a year ago, in June 2010. In April, they were among the royal guests at the wedding of William and Kate at London’s Westminster Abbey.

“Their Royal Highnesses the Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel are happy to announce that the Crown Princess is expecting their first child,” the palace said in a statement. “The birth is expected to take place in March of 2012. No changes in the schedule of the Crown Princess’s public engagements are planned during the fall of 2011.”
