PRINCESS WITH HER OWN MIND.

Byline: DENISE ROBERTSON

SWEDEN''S Crown Princess Victoria has married her personal trainer, a commoner, and had her father, King Carl XVI Gustav, escort her down the aisle. This has caused outrage among Sweden's feminists, who see the custom as a sign of male dominance. Swedish couples normally walk to the altar together.

The princess strikes me as her own woman and I like that. She picks the man she wants even though daddy reportedly disapproves. Then she acknowledges dad's place in her life and to hell with what anyone else says.

In other words, the lady makes her own decisions and is prepared to take the flak for them. I long ago spotted that the women's liberation movement wanted me to stop doing what men told me and do what they told me instead.

Like the princess, I prefer to make my own decisions.
