It should have been no brainer and at least she, if not Christopher, should have been there to support her parents the whole time.
I am not sure I am as severe as you are towards Madie. If I got it right their first involvement was in an event in NY, where they live. Later Madie and Chris came for a reception in Delaware to celebrate the Swedish community. The trip is an activity of the King and Queen.

What I will remenber about this trip is the article in Aftonbladet about some rudeness from the King towards the Queen when interrupting her answers to questions from journalists. While at a reception in his welcome speech, Joe Biden, US VP, had strong admiration words towards Madie, Chris and particularly the Queen, and Swedes, starting with them!, and was only fairly short about the King himself at the end... just a coïncidence ?!

The finnish TV showed newsclips from the celebrations. The reporter said that the local people were delighted and surprised about the warmth of queen Silvia, she had time to talk with the "common" people and pose for their photographs.
