The last time Princess Madeleine, 20 years old, was openly seen with her boyfriend Jonas B., 24 years old, was in Aare.
For a week they lived in the winter paradise of the royal family in Storlien and for several days they were skiing on the slopes of Aare.
And now once again Madeleine chooses to show how much she likes law student Jonas B., who comes from Djursholm.
Since Good Friday they have been in Marbella and Puerto Banus in Spain. They stayed at the exclusive Marbella Club. At this place prices start at 3,500 Swedish crowns per night for a single room.
- They have had fantastic days altogether. At daytime they have been sunbathing on the private beaches of the Marbella Club and in the evening their whole bunch of friends gathered to have dinner together.

Thanx Josephine for posting the remaining ibl-pictures!
I agree with you samitude, her extreme tan doesn´t only look strange and will lead to a lot of wrinkles in later years, it´s also quite dangerous, because of melanomas. On the other hand she´s not the type who gets easily sunburns. I wonder if she aims at looking that way, or if she just doesn´t want to miss to lie in the sun and has just the "bad luck" that she gets tanned that easily?!
