No Title for Christopher O’Neill
The Swedish Marshal of the Realm, Svante Lindqvist, today announced that Christopher O’Neill, the fiance of Princess Madeleine, will not be receiving a royal title upon his June 8 marriage, in accordance with both title requirements and his own wishes.
Mr O’Neill intends to not apply for Swedish citizenship and also continue with his career following his marriage. As the royal family’s policy regarding who can be a member of the family states that a member needs to be both a Swedish citizen and not hold a “position of responsibility” in a business. Therefore, Mr O’Neill does (at this time) does not qualify for a royal title, and will remain a private citizen.
Princess Madeleine and Mr O’Neill’s joint monogram was also released today, it was designed by Vladimir A Sagerlund and features two interlocking Ms and Cs.
The couple is currently in Stockholm, having arrived earlier this week ahead of their marriage banns this coming Sunday.Filed under Swedish Royals
