Hazarding a guess, Madeleine's and Sofia's past reputations may have been a factor in the polling. Throw in the Madeleine vs. Sofia feud that has played out in the tabloids and their individual negative stories in the press may have been that "I-just-can't" moment for these royals when time came to voting. I wish there were a follow up question as to why just to get insight.
hazard a guess, You know how to make it, but I do not think this survey calls for an analysis like this. Where royal mixed with media personalities, who do not have the same media exposure, the same freedom of speech ...
But if you like inquiries, lists, in here is an other one

ÅRETS KVINNOR 2016 - Internationella kvinnodagen 8 mars

This year's Women 2016

On International Women's Day traditionally appoints Expressen year's women.

100 women - who have been successful, courageous or otherwise been role models since March 8 last year.

5
Princess Sofia
31 years.

Conquered not only the prince's heart but also the Swedish people with his work for the needy children of the world. Comparisons with Queen Silvia is not baseless.

You see lists, inquiries, we can find it tens, which will tell you everything and the opposite.

This was a ranking generated by the staff of Expressen in honor of International Women's Day. It does not say how many people Expressen polled to get their rankings. The poll Lady Finn presented showed an outreach. Madeleine and Sofia has had a lot of media coverage, so lack of name recognition could not be a reason for the 2% for each of them.

it is a closed list, so the proposed names, so limited and thenmixed media personalities, entertainment and finally the royals. And with this question :

Who, of the following Swedish female media profiles do you think is the biggest role model for you personally?"

For me, a royal, not part of the media, she can not speak freely about everything and not have the same exposure, so I personally do not see anything in there that we can emerge.

Swedish royal divorce

This odd article came out in Bunte detailing "surprises" in the pre-nuptial contracts of the Crown Princess Couple, the Prince Couple and the Princess Couple.

Victoria, Madeleine & Carl Philip : Überraschende Geheimnisse aus ihren Eheverträgen | BUNTE.de

It doesn't say what prompted the article, and this has been addressed in another paper. Basically each person in the marriage keep what he/she brought in before they said I do, but what gets split in each marriage is odd:

Victoria & Daniel - the Haga household is split between them as well as things they bought together during their marriage. (How do you divide a household?) Does their beach house near Solliden get divided?

Madeleine & Chris - she keeps her investments; he keeps his. Neither gets half of the other.

Carl Philip & Sofia - all each generate in the marriage belong to the individual upon divorce; they split "everday objects" (china & kitchen equipment). So all profits from Carl Philip's businesses earned during the marriage Sofia can't get half. She gets the toaster; he gets the blender. (Frankly I think what Sofia got was hosed in this pre-nup.)

Bunte doesn't address custody of royal children. The trickiest I believe would be for Madeleine. Because they live in London she would have to work out a fair arrangement with Chris and maintain Leonore's and Nicolas's succession rights.

Bunte doesn't address if Sofia and Daniel would keep their titles and the Bernadotte surname if their marriages end.

The royal court has published it's Annual Report 2015, it has been signed in February and put now to the website.
http://www.kungahuset.se/download/18...telsen2015.pdf

The report tells the king and queen hosted a total of 5000 guests at the events at the Royal Palace and at outgoing state visit. The Crown Princess Couple conducted official representation at Haga Palace and the Royal Palace with over 200 invited guests during the year.

The media highlights from the Annual Report, that the Court Administration reports a loss of SEK 1.2 million for last year, according to the annual report for 2015 and the loss is linked to Carl Philip and Sofia's wedding. The year before the Court Administration reported a surplus of SEK 2.1 million.

Expressen's Dina Pengar has an article about the costs of the royal weddings 2010-2015.
Victoria and Daniel
The Crown Princess couple's wedding cost SEK 17 million. 10 million taxpayers had to pay for, the rest was paid from the private pocket.
- The Crown Princess's wedding was the most expensive of course, says the Treasurer of the court Jan Lindman.
Wedding festivities lasted three days with all European royal houses currently. Dinner and party at Drottningholm, and the great wedding banquet at the Royal Palace.
Madeleine and Chris
The wedding cost 11 million. 7,5 million of the sum was paid with private money.
Madeleine and Chris didn't want the wedding banquet inside the Palace, but placed the festivities with dancing into a giant party tent out on the Drottningholm Palace. After the wedding in the Royal Chapel the couple and guests travelled with the chartered ship from Stockholm to Drottningholm.
- The party was at Drottningholm. It makes more costs. The costly part was paid privately, said Lindman.
Carl Philip and Sofia
The wedding cost 7,4 million, of which 3,8 million was paid with private money. The remaining 3,6 million was paid by the taxpayers' money.
The ceremony was held at the Royal Chapel with dinner and night party inside the Royal Palace.
The King's 70-year celebration charged the royal budget, with additional costs. Exactly how much is not known. Two royal christenings with some extra costs are also on the way.
- You can't compare baptism to a wedding. The baptisms are significantly cheaper, says Lindman.

The cost of marrying royal: Sweden's royal weddings

SvenskDam put out this article about the cost of marrying off Carl Gustaf's children:

Så mycket kostade kungabarnens bröllop | Svensk Damtidning

I knew Victoria and Daniel had a lot going on for their wedding festivities (pre-dinner, pre-wedding concert, royal barge, military flyover, troubadours at their reception), 20 million is steep, even with the royal house paying in part. Madeleine and Carl Phillip's weddings didn't crack the 10 million mark, but the Prince Couple's wedding taking a loss can't be comforting for the royal bookkeepers.

I'm curious to see how the public feels about this. Will taxpayers overall believe this is too much for basically a personal event put on a grand, public scale? Will republicans, elected and non elected, feel this is another argument for abolishing the monarchy? Oscar's christening is next week: then in June, Silvia's 40th anniversary as queen; July, Victoria Day; August, or some day in the summer, Alexander's christening. Will there be efforts by the palace to scale things back a bit? (It may be too late with Oscar's baptism.) Or will the argument will be such events boosts national pride (and the local economy)?

One would hope that an event such as Prince Oscar's and Prince Alexander's christenings would boost national pride. Not every nation is a monarchy.

I have already earlier posted an article about the costs of the weddings here:
General News about the Swedish Royal Family, Part 1: April 2015-

The sums are different there. And I don't find the cost of Victoria's wedding big at all. There was a dinner for 200 guests at the Drottningholm Palace on 17th June and the wedding celebrations on 19th June. Plus the security and transport of the guests also to the City of Stockholm's lunch at the Sturehof Castle, to government's dinner and parliament's gala concert on 18th June. There was over 1100 guests at the church and 558 guests at the wedding dinner.
At Madeleine's wedding there was about 500 guests at the church and 400 at the dinner. At Carl Philip's wedding there was about 550 guests at the church and 370 at the wedding dinner.
The court rented 85 Volvos for Victoria's and Daniel's wedding to transport the guests. 60 Volvos for Madeleine's wedding and 35 Volvos for Carl Philip's wedding.
At Victoria's wedding the cortege was 6,8 km long, at Madeleine's 2 km and Carl Philip's 3,5 km. At Victoria's wedding 20 military bands were performing at the cortege route. At Madeleine's three military bands and Carl Philip's five.
At Victoria's wedding there were 1960 accredited journalists, at Madeleine's 450 and Carl Philip's 250.

As for the costs of the future events, the treasurer of the court Jan Lindman has said that the baptisms are a lot cheaper than weddings. So far there is no info about how the 40th wedding anniversary of the king and queen and queen Silvia 40 years as a queen is celebrated. Alexander's baptism is cheaper and smaller than Oscar's. Victoria's birthday doesn't make costs except extra security - people come to greet Victoria at the Solliden Park and people pay their tickets to Victoriadagen concert. There aren't any guests invited by the court at the "normal" birthdays. We will see how it is next year on Victoria's 40th birthday.

@Lady Finn - I'm surprised at the discrepancy of the figures in the two articles. Which one is more accurate? And CP's wedding cost the cheapest? Well, Victoria's reception look like a grand ball; Madeleine had a tented reception, CP had a DJ. Wedding costs usually go to food, drink and entertainment.

Obviously Sofia's coat of arms isn't ready yet. Svensk Damtidning has an article about prince Oscar's coat of arms, and it says that now Oscar's coat of arms is ready and Alexander's and Sofia's are still on the way. The king gives his acceptance to the coat of arms before it is published. The article tells also about Leonore's and Estelle's coat of arms and that they are oval to show that it is woman's coat of arms. At the article Henrik Klackenberg, the chief heraldist at the National Archives, tells that because Daniel and Sofia are not from Bernadotte dynasty, totally new inescutcheons have/had to be created to the coat of arms. Prince Daniel was very dedicated in planning of his coat of arms and it has a connection to coat of arms of Ockelbo Municipality.
- We chose some elements from Ockelbo's coat of arms to create the inescutcheon at prince Daniel's coat of arms, says Klackenberg and continues that it might be so also at princess Sofia's coat of arms.
- The Royal family is committed and we show our suggestions to them and they give their comments.

@Lady Finn - it still seems a long time for Sofia to get her coat of arms. Daniel had his before his wedding to Victoria, which may have been worked on for many months. Oscar had his in 2 mos (easy, he's a blood Bernadotte like Estelle, Leonore, Nicolas and Alexander). Here's the late Princess Lillian's coat of arms:

SvD Näringsliv had an article about the apanage and costs of the royal family last week.

Two married into the royal family, five little princes and princesses. From 2010, the royal family has doubled. How many royals the government shall support - time will tell. The government decides how much money the king gets. Since 2009, the government funding has increased by 23 %, or 25 million SEK. This year, the court received a total of SEK 135.4 million, compared with SEK 127.5 million the year before.
There are no plans to ask for more money because the family grows and and there are increased costs for things like strollers, diapers and baby clothes, according to the Keeper of the Privy Purse and treasurer of the court, Jan Lindman.
All royals who are part of the succession get now part of the apanage. How the apanage is distributed is not strictly regulated by any law. It's the king who decides.
- Historically, it is up to the king (head of state) to decide freely. It dates back to the 1809 form of government, says Lena Westin, Senior Adviser at the Department of Public Administration at the Ministry of Finance.
In Denmark, the political voices have raised the issue of who should be entitled to apanage. There is no similar debate in Sweden.
Lindman says that one can't answer today who will get the apanage in the future. Strict regulations are missing, and he says it will be a matter for the future.
The King's sisters get no apanage. Lindman guesses it has to do with that there was no question that of any of them would take up the throne.
How long Princess Madeleine and Prince Carl Philip will receive part of the apanage, time will tell.
- It can't be said with certainty that they will have it forever. It is usually said that this should be for the Head of state and his or her family. It is not for the head of state and his or her relatives, says Lindman.
Members of the royal family also have private fortunes and companies. Aftonbladet wrote some time ago that Princess Sofia has started a business.
Those who receive apanage have also the right to have some other income, for example from part ownership in certain companies.
- There are no formal obstacles. It is a matter of convenience which type of income you have. A member of the royal family who might become head of state must always uphold its neutrality. This is also why it is so important that the royal family's expenses are financed by the state, Lindman says.

Translation

Another article in SvD Näringsliv "What is apanage?"
The royal apanage has been around for over 200 years. If the court wants more money, they ask the government - and the royals may not have ordinary jobs with salaries.
Who get apanage today?
All that are part of the succession get part of the apanage. Besides the king and queen, the crown princess with family, Prince Carl Philip with family and Princess Madeleine with family, according to Jan Lindman.
Who will get the apanage in the future?
Crown Princess Victoria will receive apanage - but there is no clear limit on who else should get appanage come. That Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine with families will receive apanage in the future is not certain, said Jan Lindman.

I saw that update earlier this morning. I hope that is a subtle message: I don't dare to hope in a photo with only thr king and Estelle, but I trust the royal court will release other generational photos like this one in the future...

Expressen writes that the share transactions of Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine are going well.
The market value of their company Gluonen AB has increased strongly in 2015.
The company, which has existed for about 30 years, handles some of Victoria's, Carl Philip's and Madeleine's transactions with shares and funds.
- It has worked well over the years that I have been involved. It has not been any reason to change that, says Jan Lindman, Treasurer of the court.
The result for 2015 (profit) was 788,344 SEK, about 400 000 SEK less than in 2014.
But no money is taken out by the royal children. The money is reinvested in the company. That means they buy new shares and funds with the profit.
Bit of a million rain, it has indirectly been in 2015. The market value rose namely by almost 8.4 million to 33.2 million SEK.
