Could you please tell me, does she have any brothers and sisters, if so who are they? Also i would like to know - what charities is she patron of in Sweden? Is it true that apart from their royal duties, that most members of Sweden's royal family have ordinary jobs?
I've had a quick read of the discussion here, are Madeleine and her byfriend rumoured to be engaged?
Princess Madeleine has one brother and one sister - Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Carl Philip. Their parents are Their Majesties King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden. If you check the main forum here on the 'Royal House of Sweden' section of TRF, you can see threads about all the members of the Royal House. You can find the official website of the Royal Court and the Royal Family here
Princess Madeleine (so far) has only one patronship, and that is of "Min Stora Dag" - the Swedish equivalent of Make-a-Wish Foundation.
The members of the Royal House do not have "normal" jobs. The royal children are currently studying and what will happen in the future is not known.
And yes, there has been engagement rumours - but there has been plenty of those in the press for all three of the couples (the royal children + partners), so it's nothing new. When it happens it happens, if it does.
Welcome to the Swedish section of TRF, I hope you feel comfortable here, and just ask if you have any questions!
Se&Hör (yeah...yeah...I know, they had such stories before...often on Madeleine & Jonas and even more often on CP & Emma...strangely quite seldom on Victoria and Daniel) has this week a headline called "Maddes secret engagement party"
Has anyone more informations? Do they have pics of a party (if so...high likely it wasn´t really an engagement party...but to see pics of ANY party with them would be great)?
Thank you Mixer for the link (I´ve posted the pics as attachments) As explanation: the article says Madeleine is tanning on the balcony of the Bergström-family.
And she´s in the "final spurt" for the bikini season 2005 (eating healthy, training in the gym). According to them on thursday Victoria and Madeleine combined a shopping tour with power walking The article also says she will go with Jonas to St. Tropez (Nikki beach) in July.
I can´t decide, what to think about the undershirt. It´s cute, but my mother wears/wore such things for more than 20 years...and there I´ve seldom said it´s cute
Your are a anti mama girl so that you protest against her?
My mum can be sweet as candy...but sometimes I get sore muscles from shaking my head, when I watch her actions
And I guess it´s pretty normal, that a daughter doesn´t want to dress like the mother. So I will "leave out" this undershirt-trend...and will go on with my ideas of lingerie (don´t ask, Mixer :p )
