Yes, I was thinking the same. And everyone is smiling - except the king.

One long Christmas tradition stops this Christmas. Princess Christina and her family have traditionally spent the Christmas Eve with the royal family at Drottningholm. But princess Christina told to Svensk Damtidning, that the families have grown so big that they are spending Christmas just with their family, not in Drottningholm.

That's a bit sad but very understandable. I come from a large extended family and it's been many years since we last celebrated Christmas together. There's many people and then there's too many people. If the Christmas traditions in Sweden are similar to the Danish ones, I reckon that the King's family and Princess Christina's family will see each other in the days following Christmas Eve.

Expressen's royal reporter Johan T Lindwall told yesterday at a live interview, that according to his sources, Madeleine and Chris will spend the Christmas Eve with Chris' mother in London, Carl Philip will go to Sofia's family in Älvdalen. And Victoria and Daniel are spending Christmas with Daniel's family either at the Haga Palace or in Ockelbo, yesterday it looked like they shall be celebrating Christmas at Haga. Princess Christina is celebrating Christmas with her family. This Christmas the members of the swedish royal family are creating new traditions for Christmas, like in Norway (Haakon and Mette-Marit are not celebrating Christmas with the king and queen) or Denmark, where Mary and Frederik for the first time are celebrating Christmas with their family, not with the Queen and prince Henrik.
Everything points to that Madeleine and Chris will fly from London back to New York and she will give birth there.

Victoria and Daniel celebrated the Christmas with Daniel's family in Ockelbo already in 2011.
