It was agreed to but the legislative process in the UK and the other realms still needs to take place. Governments could change, legislative priorities could change, anything could happen. It likely will happen eventually but you never know with governments. 1 less governments approval will happen with Jamaica planning to be a republic soon. Anyway, congrats to the Swedish couple even though I was hoping for a future King

In my country,it's absolutely normal to leave hospital at the same day of giving birth by natural labour but not with c section as you have to wait at least 24hours after giving birth.I left hospital 3 hours after giving birth to my children.

Yes, but seeing as Princess Marie for instance was on the hospital for about three (?) days, I just thought she'd stay longer.

No, the "we" is clearly from him and Sofia. It's the first congratulations released by him. He later congratulated Victoria and Daniel with Madeleine in a separate release...

It's ultimately up to the mother (and not least the child) and there are no doubt differencies from country to country.
And there is a difference between the DRF and SRF in the sense that there is a well established tradition for presenting the child to the press when the leaving the hospital in Denmark, while the Swedes obviously opt not to do that.
If Victoria was to do that, I think she would have chosen to stay in the hospital for a few days more.

In DK it's certainly not uncommon for new mothers to leave the hospital within hours, but the doctors like if you wait at least until the milk starts running.
But as another poster suggested, V&D probably have a fully qualified nurse standing by at home.

Wow that was quick I only went to bed less than 9 hours ago and they already left! The last time I remember someone leaving that quickly had to have been the Late Diana Princess of Wales when she had William she left I think if memory serves me correctly the next day.

Finnish Iltalehti tells that Victoria´s stylist Tina Törnqvist arrived to Haga Palace at nine o´clock in the morning, four hours before Victoria, Daniel and the little princess came home. Johan T Lindwall from Expressen believes that she was asked either as a friend (Victoria gets close with the people she works with) or that she came to make Victoria ready for the official photos possibly taken today.

According to the court, Madeleine will arrive to Sweden to see the little princess as soon as she can.

Has there been any coverage of what the doctors had to say?
If so just delete this post.

In Svensk Damtidning: http://svenskdam.se/2012/02/forlossn...-val/#comments

The doctor in charge, Lennart Nordström, is quoted for saying that he was more nervous about this interview than for the delivery: "I've gotten to know that so well that it didn't seem particularly akward. A responsibilty (yes), but I relied on the midwife, Cecilia and I being very comfortable with each other and having a complementing knowledge, so it has felt very good".

A room was prepared two weeks ago, especially for Victoria: "That was our descision, we could not have an official person sitting in a waiting room".

Daniel commended the team, when meeting the press and Lennart Nordström comments on that: "We appreciate that, but our role in the context is marginal, they (V&D) are the ones who have done a terrific job together".

As the birth of a royal child hasn't happened for a long time in the SRF Lennart Nordström was approached long ago: "I was asked to do this early on in the pregnancy and I never doubted my descision".
