Jonas kind of resembles Madeline's father and brother! I hadn't really noticed that before. But I guess this is the best face-on photo that I have seen of him. The other photos have been side-views of his face.

i look pictures she wore necklace same as Princess Diana's necklace ? its different or not !
I think i look said Princess Madeline would choose Prince William for husband i dont think so he will become king after his grandmother the Queen 2 that makes sense britian rules ! if Prince William will married at age 25 like as his dad do that !
translation later....But Expressen visited her boyfriend at Östermalam and there was madeleine opening the door, she siad hi with a smile, she did not let them take photos couse her mam and dad would be very angry,
- you don´t want to see my dad angry...
Officially her boyfriend name is on the contract but Expressen says that she has basically moved in,
her address are still drottningholm castle
neighbors tell about a happy princess that always great them with a hello.
Expressen ask about if she will get engagement, she tells them maybe in the future, that would be nice, but for now she is to young.
I myself don't think she has moved, but stays with him a lot…
The paper just wants to sell a story therefor the headline…
What do you say?
I agree with you Josephine. Maybe she has her own toothbrush and some clothes there, but I guess she´s also much at Drottningholm. I wonder ,why she didn´t want to be photographed, but answered such personal questions ( Ok, maybe the mentioned slippers she wore are too ugly for the public :P ) ?
I also wonder when crown princess Victoria finally move to her boyfriend?! She is almost 26, they are a couple for over a year and she has the money to do!
I was wondering, though, do you think the Swedish public cares that Madeleine is living with her boyfriend?
I'm just asking because I was thinking the other day if there were double standards in regards to men and women in royal life. I mean, in every article that I've read about future brides for the Princes William and Harry (for example) one of the qualifications is that the girl should preferably be a virgin, although in this day-and-age, exceptions can be made. Yet, here is royal princess living with her boyfriend. Likewise, Zara of Britain is always living with her jockey boyfriend. Have times just changed from when Diana married Charles (and she had to undergo a checkup to verify her virginity) or, are royal women allowed to do what they like, while women who marry into royality must follow a different standard?

Interesting question Jalmey.
I think that the standards would be different for the girl whom William or Harry lives with rather than on the boys themselves. And the double standard is also that the attnetion here is being paid to Madeline living with this young man rather than the other way around as it surely would be with the young girl whom William or Harry chose to live with. I think that if William espescially chose to live with "Jane" there would be a lot of press about her suitability as a future queen and talk that she wasn't a "proper" lady even though it is 2003 and plenty of (non-royal) couples do it in this day and age.
Unfortunately for the young ladies whom William and Harry fall in love with, there will be lots of pressure on them to behave a certain dignified and proper way and living with either of the boys before marriage would be highly frowned upon.
And because Zara and Madeline (and eventually Beatrice and Eugenie) are born royal, the expectations and standards for them are different.
3 JUNE 2003
Princess Madeleine of Sweden has apparently decided it's time to step out on her own, leaving the plush surroundings of the royal palace for a flat in the centre of Stockholm.
But, according to reports, the 20-year-old royal isn't living solo – she's sharing the relatively modest 92-metre square home with her boyfriend, Jonas Bergstrom.
The plan to move in with her 24-year-old beau began when she began studying History of Art at university in January. "What young person doesn't want independence?," the princess is quoted as telling the Swedish press after it was revealed that she was living on her own. "Even though my parents don't think it’s a good idea."
The princess began dating law student Jonas in December of last year, just a few weeks after a split with ex-boyfriend Erik Grannath. However, though the two have sparked a romance, Madeleine has insisted the new living arrangement doesn't mean there will be wedding bells anytime soon.
