I always wondered where Madeline got her coloring and her eyes...since I don't see it in either her father or her mother. Margaretha and Madeline have the same big blue eyes.

Great pictures Emil

Haga Slott is the work of Nicodemus Tessin the Elder. His good friend Gustaf Persson Natt och Dag (portrait) was master of the medieval castle Haga, and was convinced by Tessin to build a contemporary grand manor in its place. Construction was completed in 1670.

Before the new manor house was built, the castle was home to, among others, the man who would be King of Sweden three separate times during the fifteenth century, Karl VIII Knutsson.

They did some royal duties when they were younger yes, but since they got married they stoped and became full time "wifes"

Princess Christina works for the Red Cross btw...

Thank you for this GrandDuchess, that´s great!
What a pity that 2 of this marriages are only existing "officially" today. When you look at the facts on their weddings it looked so perfect and promising.

I wonder if prince Carl Philip and princess Madeleine will have a similar role at the Royal court as princess Christina...or if they will disappear from the limelight like the other 3 sisters.

Glamourous Swedish Princess

Hello!
I'm looking for the name and pictures of a Swedish princess who was quite famous in the sixties.
She was blonde and very beautiful. I think she was called the BB of the North.
I've seen a photo of her in an article about Madde years ago where they were comparing the two princesses' love life.
Could someone help me find the name of this princess?
Thankx.
