Well if he didn't know who she is he probably does now or will very soon judging by the article.

I think this is the supposed "new guy" in Winter Wonderland Ball in 2007:

I have a feeling they're exaggerating the whole thing. As Madeleine's friends stated there are a lot of guys circulating around her all the time, doesn't mean she's already taken. I think she should find someone more down to earth, not necessarily someone from high society. With down-to-earth I mean someone with common sense and good values.

And I also don't think it's manipulativ that she maybe hasn't told him who she is. Maybe she just wants to be completely normal and not a big royal and just wants to know if he's really interested in her. Couldn't blame her.
Except she is a big royal, who should be in her own country doing something worthwhile than spending time in NY for no reason.
I can understand that he might not know who she is, but being a Princess is hard to keep. Especially when Madeleine has been in NY for a while and I could imagine that at least some gossip magazine might have picked up on her? She has done a few events hasn't see?

Madeleine, in the grand scheme of things and in regards to world-wide knoweldge, is not a big royal. Few people outside of Sweden, not counting royalty watchers, would know who she is, unless someone who did know told them. Especially in the US, where the main royals are the Windsors and the Grimaldis - mainly due to Princesses Diana (in recent times) and Grace. Madeleine could be dropped into any country in the world, excluding Sweden, and would be able to go by unnoticed by the populace (until a paparazzi spotted her/was tipped off) - at most, some people might think she is some anonymous wife/daughter of a millionaire. The same for most of the other royals in the world (with some exceptions - Queens Rania and Noor in the US, the Spaniards in South America, Princess Mary in Australia; and even then there would be a large number of people who still wouldn't know who they are - nor would they care). So it is quite likely that this man, whoever he may be, had no clue that Madeleine is a Swedish Princess upon first meeting.

Story about Madeleine and her new "Prince Charming" hits the UK press. Looks like a regurgitation of other articles.

Great that you share my veiw of Finland is a apart of Sweden not really an indepent country.
Mainly I agree with you, but she would not go unoticed in Finland, and I am not sure she would in the rest of Scandinavia or Germany eitehr but apart from that I agree.

Well, perhaps I should give Madeleine the benefit of the 'neighbour' factor - if she was dropped into Denmark, Norway, Finland or Germany, chances are she would be recognised quicker than in other nations. But my point remains the same - Madeleine is not well-known enough on an international scale, simply by face, that she would be recognised immediately by a passer-by on the street.

Agreed Madeline might not be well known on site but I trust by now at the very least this guy knows who she is, either from press, but more likely she or someone she knows told him.....

I wonder how Madeleine introduced herself to him. Did she say:

"I'm Madeleine Bernadotte"
Or
"I'm Princess Madeleine"

Congratulations to princess Madeleine.

For meeting a new romance. Of course it would happen eventually

And also congratulations to Madeleine for getting rid of the infamous fiancee.

Perhaps they were introduced by friends Madeleine, this is Chris, Chris, this is Madeleine

I did say in that reply

she's been in NY for a while, I'm sure she's been noticed by someone. My main post was that Madeleine should be back in Sweden.

Well... The area now known as Sweden used to be inhabited by Finns and Samis long before the Swedes arrived... But since I know you Swedes have such a penchant for colonialistic boastery (much like our eastern neighbours do), I'll let it slide this time...

The papers have been full of speculations and pure gossip regarding Madeleine and Chris today... I'll put the beyond all proportion interest in this down to the press needing an excuse to have photos of Madeleine published. Most tabloids seem to be keen to present her wearing an evening gown as generous as possible, it seems...

All this speculation is getting out of control. They may just be friends.

A) You know, I always feel like laughing, when I'm reading something like your first sentence. Madeleine works for a charity her own mother founded while spending her spare time (which we all have a right to have) going out and having fun, while she attends a few royal events here and there. Her brother is doing something worthwhile while he's in his country, studying something useful to manage his properties later-on and doing some royals appearances here and there and he obviously isn't doing something useful according to thousands of users. So, Which one of them really does something worthwhile and useful and which one doesn't? So what if Madeleine does her duties in NY and not in Stockholm? She is doing something and not wasting her time. And if getting over her broken relationship in NY helps her, what's so bad in working there? At least she IS doing something and NOT nothing. The only thing she shouldn't have handled otherwise is the nobel prize ceremony, but other than that, I see nothing wrong with her living and working in NY.

B) NY is a very big city and I definitely do believe that it's possible do go out with her for a while and not knowing who she really is. If she doesn't tell (IF) there's no telling that he'll recognize her for a while (if he really doesn't know). Because honestly, there are so many famous people in NY and Madeleine isn't that much of a big fish there (she would, if she would have been a british royal, but she isn't). Like I said before, not everyone follows the royals like we do and will recognize her right away. Just like we won't recognize a pro hockey player or an actor right away which would be absolutely incomprehensible for a die-hard fan of said pro hockey player or actor. Do you know what I mean?

A; Shall we agree to disagree on this matter, I think Madeleine should be in Sweden doing duties and when she's needed in NY she can pop over throughout the year rather than living there. I have already said I think Madeleine is milking her supposedly broken heart. However if she's in a new relationship, she seems to be over Jonas and what he did.
She's Princess of Sweden, not New York. If Prince Harry spent the majority of the year in Africa rather than in the UK i'd be annoyed.
She is doing something, but she's only working for one charity which her mother founded, has she not got other patronages or duties in Sweden or is she choosing to neglect them?

B; I get what you mean, but if this guy she's dating is a well known man, the magazines will have done some background research on who the "blond babe" is. Don't you think? Or have the press suddenly started respecting privacy?
