Are they both wearing glasses? And Madeleine has this winterjacket since 3 years

Jonas looks very handsome in his glasses...

And I do like Madeleine's jacket, though I think you're right in the fact that she has worn it for a long time now.

The thing which comes to my mind, when I see this pic, is "Ooooh, how nice, that Madde seems to love her brother" :P Especially in this pic I see the similarities between Carl-Philip and Jonas :o

could you post Jonas and Carl Philip side by side? ....... otherwise the similarities aren't all that apparent to me.

BTW how did you include the pic too ?

Hm, it´s nothing special, which is similar. It are rather a lot of small things together- especially the mimic.
Rather jealous as a protective brother...but in those aristocratic circles, who knows :P

Madeleine and Jonas has a new apartment:

(expressen)



The article basically says that Madeleine and Jonas have moved to another apartment sinse their contract on the first one ran out. They like the new apartment very much. This week they're celebrating the 60th birthday of Jonas's mother.
Did they mention the size of her apartment... is that what 70 kvadratmeters is?

Yes, the flat measures 70 square meters. IMO not very tall. I would love to see the interior decoration.

"70 kvadratmeters" is 70 square metres, which is about 700 square feet, or more precisely 753 square feet.

However, the "measure" of area is different in Europe compared to the USA/Canada. Where in Canada the area pertains to the whole space, I know in Germany the bathroom (and I think the kitchen) are excluded. How it is in Sweden, Austria Spain or Portugal, I don't know.

That isn't very big for two people. Is rent in Stockholm very expensive?

But yes... I bet the interior decoration is nice. Ikea is Swedish, right? Or probably Madeleine doesn't need to rely on "cheap" furniture like Ikea.

Ikea is Swedish. Actually, apartments are expensive. But for those of you who are visiting Stockholm. The ideal time to go is in the summer. The hotels slash prices to where they are at weekends during the rest of the year. Therefore, out of season(which is fall, spring and I'd imagine winter when Sweden is very beautiful), and mid-week are the most expensive times for hotels. Now you can expect to pay 500 kr($65) for a room with a tv and a bathroom. Well, that's of the beginning of the year. However, Sweden's economy is doing rather well and certainly better than the Eurozone.

"Range Varies, for example:
From around £25,000 / $37,000 for a single family home
From around £25,000 / $37,000 for an apartment
From around £40,000 / $60,000 for a villa
From around £50,000 / $75,000 for a bungalow
From around £85,000 / $125,000 for city homes
Country homes vary from around £150,000 / $225,000"

"Tax is payable at the annual rate of around 1.5% of the properties regularly assessed value at 75% and will be charged on tax registered foreign ownership. Newly built homes or renovated homes are exempt for at least the first five years with the next five years at a reduction of 50%. Expenses for construction of buildings incur V.A.T at 25%.Wealth tax is charged at 1.5% of taxable amounts in excess of SEK 800,000 (£56,000 / $83,000). " :o

Sweden is generally expensive (and of course to live in the middle of a capital is always expensive)...but I don´t think Madeleine has to worry about that.
Madeleine wants to be interior designer, right?! So she should IMO design and construct the furniture. Nice imagination: Madde in blue dungarees, a splotch green colour on her nose, the hair in a frowsy pony-tail and a slave (alias Jonas), who has to do all the nasty operations.
And yes, IKEA is swedish, and the best thing, which the Swedes gave to us!!!! :woot:
