Too add to what Henri has said, RubyPrincess, Estonia is the northernmost of the three countries mentioned.

06.03.2007 Estonia, Tartu

Princess Madeleine visited NPA Tartu Christian Adolescent Home and Tartu Child Support Center. Madeleine was taking this trip to Tartu on behalf of the World Childhood Foundation and therefore she did not want any cameras for the meetings. There are speculations on the theme that Princess Madeleine will probably take over WCF after the Queen Silvia one day and that is why she is visiting centres which are supported by WCF.

According to the newspaper Eesti Päevaleht Swedish Royal Family will pay an official visit to Estonia and Tartu this autumn.

Rootsi printsess käis Tartus lastefondi raha kasutamist uurimas - Eesti Päevaleht Online

There is a video of Princess Madeleine arriving/leaving NPA Tartu Christian Adolescent Home. Here is the link provided by TV3's Seitsmesed Uudised:

I never heard of Extonia either but Estland is the Dutch name for Estonia just like Letland is for Latvia. So it is indeed a language thing

Thanks for the links with beautiful pictures of the queen and Princess Madeleine. Nice to see the queen after her holiday in Brasil!

I didn't know the queen had been to Brazil! Princess Madeleine looked very serious, business like.

Ick. Not loving Madeleine's look at all. A little too serious and dare I say it...Librarian-ish. Can't believe I said that about Madeleine! Never thought that would happen. And her make-up is awful as well, in pic 4 from above she looks scary. Of course this is only my opinion!

Well, she might look not so great, because the picture is with devil red eyes

If she would always run around like this, I´d be bored as well. But the strategy of her (or the court or whoever) seems to be dull meets sexy. If one is running around like Paris Hilton at bday parties, one has to make up for it with a prudish suit. And this strategy does work so well, that I guess Madeleine will never ever change it

I admit that I'm not keen on Princess Madeleine's outfit but she does look serious and business like.

Madeleine seems to be damned if she does and damned if she doesn't. When she dresses more adult and mature and appropriate for the event, she's dowdy and librarian-ish. If she dresses in a sexy dress or wears a short dress that may not be that revealing, she's a Paris Hilton Barbie doll. She can't do right, it would seem.


I found nothing wrong with her choice of attire for this event. It seemed to be a serious function, and what she wore suited that. I thought she looked really good, and not anywhere near a librarian. I've never seen a librarian look like her and I'm sure more boys would be interested in reading if they did!

I completely agree Lena. To me and I'll probably get slammed for it but Madeleine seems to be the type that needs attention. So she wore a short flirty dress to a b-day party to get that attention but this type of look from the other day is more of "Yes, I know I'm a princess and I can be taken seriously" look.I don't beleive she wanted to stand out at this event and therefore we see a more serious look.

And to other posters yes I used the word librarian-ish but gee don't take it so literal it's not that I was saying that I've seen a librarian in this exact suit but I just meant it as a way to describe a more serious rather prudish(like Lena said) approach to dressing. People constantly throw the word Librarian around to describe Victoria's style but with this outfit I felt it looked very odd and old-fashioned on Madeleine. I think this is Madeleine, she will always be one to watch to see if she goes over the line.

I always wonder why did she tan her skin that deep, a bit too much, she was much better without it...
