STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- Swedish Crown Princess Victoria will wed her fiance Daniel Westling in a ceremony to be conducted by Sweden's archbishop Anders Wejryd, officials say.

In the first royal wedding in Sweden in more than 30 years, Wejryd will preside when Victoria and Westling tie the knot June 19, 2010, at Gamla Stan's Storkyrkan, the Swedish news agency TT reported Sunday.

The crown princess announced her engagement in April after months of anticipation over when -- or if -- the long courtship would end in a marriage, the news agency said.

TT said Wejryd has served as Sweden's archbishop since 2006, serving for 10 years before that as the bishop of the Vaxjo.
