"Sources close to the family" have told to Svensk Damtidning that Madeleine is looking for a swedish nanny for Leonore, she is using her closest friends as help. She has also shown interest to company Änglavakt in Stockholm, it trains nannies and you can hire a nanny from there. Estelle's nanny Adeline Petersson has been educated at Änglavakt. The founder of Änglavakt Sandra von Kantzow says that Adeline is very sweet and has her feet on the ground. She was very appreciated when she worked at a family via their company. After that she worked at a preschool. The crown princess couple has really made a good choice, says von Kantzow.
Leonore's future nanny must speak swedish so that speaking swedish will be natural for Leonore.

Stoppa pressarna writes about Svensk Damtidning's article. Svensk Damtidning insists that Madeleine and Chris are moving away from New York and that their primary plan is to travel between London and Stockholm. Madeleine is tired at lonely walks with Leonore at Central Park and misses the walks at Royal Djurgården in Stockholm. According to the chief of the Royal Mews Mertil Melin there is going on restructuring and renovation of several apartments inside the Royal Mews where a two-room apartment according to information may belong to Leonore's nanny in the future.

Right now on the Facebook page of a swedish national radio show listeners are asked to write about meeting members of the royal family and a woman tells about when she sold a copy of the magazine "Svensk Damtidning" to Madeleine and Jonas Bergström. At first Jonas put it on the till with the front up but when she saw it Madeleine whispered something to him and he turned it over. The woman concludes by writing that obviously Madeleine was on the front page lol

Eva O'Neill has been visiting Madeleine, Chris and Leonore. On Sunday they went to a brunch in Manhattan. Expressen writes that Madeleine and her family have been planning to spend Christmas with the king and queen in Drottningholm. They have also planned several dinners with their friends.

A question to all Swedes here: Will the baby news increase the popularity of Madeleine and Christopher in Sweden? And how popular is Princess Leonore?

Basically people don't really care about them. Madeleine was very popular as a child when her antics endeared her to the public but that changed about the time she got labeled as a party princess. Nowadays she mostly gets negative press coverage on the lines of her being a work shy freeloader who is stuck up and only does what she wants.

Madeleine is rather distant to the swedes, I have understood. She hardly meets the "common" Swedes. I don't know when she has for instance visited her duchies, since she hasn't had many work events outside Stockholm during the last years. Carl Philip has some work events every year at his duchy Värmland.

For the future of the monarchy I think it would be best for both Madeleine and Carl Philip to take a step back and not partake as much in the day to day royal business. I'm sure they're both nice and sweet persons but their public images does not reflect well upon the monarchy.

Can you please explain what you mean by "Their public images does not reflect well upon the Monarchy." I mean HRH Princess Madeleine works for World Childhood Foundation which was founded by her mother HM Queen Silvia of Sweden yes she works for the American offices in New York but still she works for her mother who is the Queen of Sweden and founder of the foundation. As for HRH Prince Carl-Philip I have never really heard any bad press regarding him. I mean for example he is in the Swedish Navy as a Lieutenant , he studied and loves graphic design, he as designed stuff that the proceeds from the sale of the CD cover of music of Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker which was released in honor his mother's 60th birthday in 2003. To the sale of a calendar he created together with an advertising agency that was sold in 2004. The proceeds from those sales went to his Mother's foundation. So I'm just confused as to how does their public images reflect badly upon the Monarchy ?


Sincerely,

Brent R. von Behrens II

I'm not JR76, but some answers, about Carl Philip:

There was much headlines last year about Carl Philip not having designed what he had claimed to be his.
Design scandal burns Swedish prince - The Local

Carl Philip was accused of systematically plagiarizing others' artwork. He is attacked by the advertising agency King's praised creator Hedvig Hagwall Bruckner who believes that Prince's latest tableware collection with the Swedish flora and fauna is a clean copy of Gustavberg's classic series ”Arter i fara" (Species in danger)"
Resumé ”Carl Philip fortsätter det skamlösa plagierandet”

And the fighting in Cannes
Sweden's rebel prince happy slapped in front of glamour model girlfriend during night out in Cannes Daily Mail Online

And his racing career, which isn't very successful, also divides people's opinions.

This is of course based on my own personal opinion but also what I hear from people around me and read in the media and online. Neither M or CP are really disliked but they're both unpopular and seen as freeloaders by many in the public. Even worse (to me) is that most swedes don't care at all about them and their families. What media coverage they get is either negative headlines in the evening and gossip papers or very rosy articles about them, their good looks etc... Very rarely is there something of substance written about them. M is seen as someone who wants all the privileges of being a royal but shuns the responsibility that comes with it while CP is seen as handsome and a nice guy but a bit slow and easily led by his future wife.
To me it's a bit unfair since as you say M does a lot of work for Childhood and CP is apparently getting more and more involved in the running of his own estate and Stenhammar (which he's afaik is set to take over after his father) while at the same time representing the family on many occasions but public opinion is fickle and rarely based on facts.
Thanks LadyFinn for the links you provided.

Princess Madeleine and her husband Chris O'Neill are moving home, says SVT.
The couple talks about their plans to leave New York in the interview at 'The Year with the Royal Family".
- We will move in the near future to Europe. It is here that we have our families, says Princess Madeleine.
Madeleine told also that there is a special bond between Princess Estelle and her cousin Princess Leonore.
- She is very fond of Leonore, which is very cute. She wants to change diapers, she wants to bath Leonore, she wants to feed. It's very nice to me, I hardly need to do anything.
