Tim Vesterberg has a slightly different everyday life. The Swede is married to a British royal!
Queen Elizabeth’s funeral took place on Monday. Around 2,000 guests were assigned seats in the gigantic church Westminster Abbey in London.
One of the honored guests on site was Swedish Tim Vesterberg, 29 years old.
But how did he get there?
Swedish Tim, 29, confuses the guests inside Elizabeth’s funeral: “Who is he?”
That’s how Tim Westerberg became part of the British royal family
Tim has found love in British royalty Flora Ogilvy, who is the bride of Prince Harry and Prince William and 56th in line to the throne.
Tim Vesterberg moved to London a few years ago to work as a fund manager in London’s financial world.
Behind him he had a stable hockey career in the Swedish youth national team. Tim was born in 1993 and grew up in Sundbyberg in Stockholm.
When Tim had moved to London he met Flora Ogilvy who happens to be the granddaughter of Elizabeth’s cousin Princess Alexandra. Flora is therefore a distant relative of the British royal family.
Love arose between Tim and Flora and the two got married at the beginning of autumn 2020. Flora Ogilvy became Flora Vesterberg at the beginning of September two years ago.
Tim became a bit of a talking point in the British press. Daily Mail started calling him “Swedish sports hunk”. What a lovely nickname!
In the wedding photos, we see Tim with his parents Carina Vesterberg and Patrik Vesterberg on the left, next to Flora are her parents Julia Ogilvy and James Ogilvy.
– Timothy and I were married privately in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace. We are so happy and look forward to celebrating next year! Flora Vesterberg said after the wedding.
Right! Tim thus became Timothy in the same vein as new life in royal circles began. Perhaps it was considered more appropriate?
Why was Tim at Elizabeth’s funeral?
Timothy thus had to get used to public royal contexts. On Monday, he entered the enormous church of Westminster Abbey together with his wife Flora and the rest of Elisabeth’s relatives.
It is thus through his marriage to Flora that he is now part of Elizabeth’s family and was therefore an obvious companion in church on Monday.
Swedish Tim, 28 – just meters from his new relative Queen Elizabeth!
