The royal court has put an official press release to it's website about Johan T Lindwall writing in his new book that the King ordered SÄPO to check the backgrounds of Chris and Eva O'Neill.

Denial of data in new book
Based upon information at a recent book the Marshal of the Realm wants to inform:
In the book "Madeleine Prinsessan privat" by Johan T Lindwall it is said that His Majesty the King on two occasions has given the court an order to ask the Security Police carry out checks on persons close to Princess Madeleine.
The alleged information made that this would have been ordered by His Majesty the King are rejected firmly.
Mats Nilsson
The deputy Marshal of the Realm

Johan T Lindwall writes in his book "Madeleine Prinsessan privat" that
Chris O'Neill had early shown a great interest in Queen Silvia's Childhood organization. Without Madeleine's knowledge Chris donated 100 000 dollars to the organization. He had done it anonymously, but Madeleine got to know it through some mutual friends.

Chris' mother is an excellent society networker, defo A-list + connections. I wouldnt be surprised if she gently guided her son into the right direction.

Does anyone know why they didnt go to Salzburg?

The reporter of Svensk Damtidning was in Salzburg and met Eva O'Neill there. She told to SD:
- I am very busy. I have 80 people to take care of, she said before she went in.
- It has been a wonderful weekend, thank you so much, she said after the concert.
Eva O'Neill's both daughters and their families attended the Amadeus Weekend, but there wasn't any reason mentioned in SD why Madeleine and Chris didn't attend.

According to our (Austrian) magazine News Madeleine and Chris will announce their engagement by the end of November. I wouldn't take this speculation serious though .....

There have been reports of "impending" and/or "imminent" engagement announcements for Madeline and Chris (and Carl Philip and Sofia) for ages now.
Until I see an official announcement from the Court, I'm not going to believe any of it any more.

As I said I wouldn't take it serious. Until the court announces something I don't believe anything.

although an announcement in November wouldn't surprise me for either of the couples. it gives people who would attend the ability to put the wedding in their schedule for next year. and it doesnt step on the toes of Guillaume and Stephanie

Do you think they will have a more cosy wedding or a Royal big wedding celebrity?

Exactly, rumors spreading around the entire year already.....
as I do not assume, that there will be a "double wedding", who is "allowed" to announce first?
Carl Philipp, because he is more in line to the throne and his relationship is older?
Or Madeleine, because she is Daddy´s girl and deserves a "better" engagement now?

Both will have big, but less grand weddings than Victoria.

Engagement announced today for Princess Madeleine?

Many reports today in the Swedish media about an engagement for Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill today!
Royal Court spokeperson Bertil Ternert refused to comment but said that an official announcement would be made later in the day on Thursday.

That's promising. Will be interesting to see if it turns out to be true! I honestly thought Carl-Philip and Sofia would be first.

Looking forward to get the official announcement -and will be delighted, whereas I really really hope for her, that she proved long time enough to make the better choice this time

In another board there started the immediate speculation about Chris Titles, and it was said, that at her first engagement 2009 Jonas would have received the title of a Duke, but no HRH title. Madeleine will keep her´s of course. The children would no longer be HRHs.
So I am interested to see, what the announcement will be in terms of titles and future.
I assume, that Madeleine will remain in NY, travelling occasionally to Sweden for National Day, Nobel Prices etc.
