According to the informationschef of the court, Bertil Ternert, Madeleine has an apanage on which she finances her living on New York.

Exactly. I have no doubt the family is wealthy enough to pay for Madeleines stay themselves. If she doesnt work for the crown on a regular basis or only choses to be a princess on a few occasions that suit her, she should stop making use of her apanage.

The idea of royalty is simple - you get paid by the taxpayer to represent your country in return. If you dont chose to represent, fine, but then find yourself a job and earn your own money like other backbench royals do. Only in Sweden...

Exactly. Her not showing up is the last straw for me. You can't make anymore excuses for her.
