Yes, you´re right. I was referring to the article. Sorry for the confusion. I should address her more properly but in a discussion forum, such rules are relaxed. Yes, "len" means soft and smoothe too but it can also mean bland too as in a bland voice.

There are always people in this kind of forum that take all what they read too serious...
But i questioned myself, that if had the chance to meet the Princess how should i address them... i come from a country with no monarchy for over 200 years so, should i bow? maybe if i am in their country, should i do the same if they come to mine? probably yes if i'm an ambassador, but i'm not...hummm :)

The common thing to do when you are introduced to a royal here is that you say "Your Royal Highness" and then something in the normal field of meeting phrases, like "I'm honoured to meet you" or something. A hand shake is okay, you can curtsy if you like (bow if you're a man of course).

Thanx!! Yeah i'll probably do that if i happend, but i know a lot of people here that don't care for royalty or stuff relationated with (protocol, etc..), some of them really hate monarchy, so i asked them how would they address them and they're answer was not greet'em at all (if they come here) well i suppose that we'll never know for real until we have the chance...

18. You can start practice at 16, but you cannot get your drivers license before your 18th birthday.

Wow! I've been driving since I was 15. It's interesting to see how different countries have different laws.

To get back on topic...Does anyone know if the Princess has any summer plans?

I think the family always spends some time in the South of France? The King and Queen do anyway. In the past their children have always joined them. But maybe now that they are older they don't like to holiday with their parents.

Paparazzi

Crown Princess Victoria said in an interview a few years ago that she does not like the South of France because of the paparazzi.

No clue, sine it's private business... But I would guess that the Princess will spend some time at the Royal Family's summer home Solliden on the island of Öland, and perhaps a trip so some sunnier place...

Yes, that would be great. But I (obviously completely obsessed with Royals ) have already checked the temperatures for South france and Marbella and it says only 16-18 °C max. Easter is simply too early this year :( I don´t see the Royal family holidaying in South europe and I doubt, that they will go to Africa or America on holiday...but who knows.

Apparently Madeleine and Victoria went to Storlien during their easter holiday and stayed in the royal cottage...

Aftonbladet writes that an unidentified man got to close to the cottage and the the security company that guards the princesses had him "removed"

Is anyone counting how many articles Aftonbladet has written on "unidentified men", who got to close to the princesses?? I´m now in temptation to write Aftonbladet a reader´s letter and to tell them, that they should write something interesting.
Why was no one up there and has made pictures or has talked to the princesses (or other members of the RF). It was quite clear, that the RF (or members) would go this year either to Storlien (Åre), Öland or (in the case of Victoria) Ockelbo.
Only incompetent pack is working at Aftonbladet. When they can´t write anything interesting (and can´t publish new photos...I don´t mean just Paparazzi-pics) on the RF, they should write nothing at all!

I wonder how many of the "unidentified men" Aftonbladet writes about are other curious journalists or photographers?

Good theory. They all look sleazy and drunk

I´ve now made a list of articles I NEVER want to read again in a swedish (and later in a german, norwegian, danish etc.) tabloid:

1. Jagad - av en psyksjuk (= hunted- of a mentally ill person... this is always in connection with the princesses and always mentally ill men want to be together with the them. I also don´t want to read stories on the bodyguards of the Royal family. At least as long as no bodyguard is dating the princesses. But since Sweden isn´t Monaco, we won´t see that...for new ppl on the board: No, Daniel Westling isn´t/wasn´t her bodyguard, though he looks as if he would)

2. Madeleine´s vän greps med knark (=Madeleine´s friend caught with drugs...Is it necessary to mention that Madeleine´s so called addicted friend can also be the baker, where she buys her bread rolls in the morning, or the friend of the ex-friend of a friend, who has said 2 sentences to Madeleine in a night club...something like "sorry, that I stood on your foot. Can you tell me the time, I´ve lost my watch"?? But since he/she is never mentioned with his/her name, it doesn´t matter)

3. Hovet rasar mot XY (the court is angry at XY...usually XY is a person, who thinks he/she is funny, because he/she makes fun of the Royal family. But of course they are not as funny as the one and only great new spokeswoman of the court Ann Christine Jernberg, who always feels appealed to make a comment to the jokes of the comedians. A shut mouth doesn´t catch flies, Ann Christine...)

4. All connections between the princesses and faked porn pictures on the net (here again our dear ACJ manages it to make a mountain out of a molehill...and I always have to imagine, how the male readers of the tabloids go to google and type "prinsessan Madeleine naked/naken" in...btw you get about 3000 hits for it :p )

5. Hovet stämmer tyska skvallertidningar (= the court sues the german tabloids...ok ok, they have deserved it. But the irony, that tabloids like Aftonbladet and Expressen love to write about it, was only 10 seconds funny.)

6. Hovet vill ha mer pengar (The court wants more money...About 3 hours after such headlines were published, you can find poor little descendants of social democrats, who have to work 120 hours a week for their 1 SEK and 1 Öre per hour, on the net and you can see how they fill forums with "abolish the monarchy, it´s a shame for our democratic Sweden")

When I see one of these headlines again in a swedish tabloid, I will cry so loud, that you can hear it even in Sweden (not to mention the US, China, Australia, Chile...)

Very funny, and true. And be sure that VG in Norway and BT and Ekstrabladet in Denmark pick up the story just hours later, especially if they concern Madeleine they might even end up on the frontpage

Also the "close freinds" that talk to the press . How close are the "close friends" that rats the princesses out to the press? I would think the really close friends like the one that is almost as tanned as Madeleine, I cant remember her name would, ever talk to the press.

I also dont like the articles about the money, especially the ones related to security, its the Police that says the security has to be increased, which is natural when the children grow up, its not the King calling the Prime minister asking for an extra bodyguard for his daughter, and after the Anna Lind tragedy there should not be taken any unnecassary risks.

As for Ann Cristin, she needs to stop writing stupid comments on the website (she should instead spend some time on updating its dated look), not comment on stupid articles in Expressen and Aftonbladet, as that only leeds to more stupid articles in the very same papers. And if she has to reply to something, dont add non relevant information like "the Princess continues with her studies" in a comments about partying or free clothes, it looks very petty and unroyal IMO.

And Finally I personally think that the "serious" :p papers Expressen and Aftonbladet just Looooooves the german rags, that way they can report all the silly storys about Madeleine without loosing the tiny rest of credibility they have because they did not write it first.

Yes, partly the take even the articles verbatim over. Unfortunatley one can´t say, that Expressobladet uses great grammar, variation of words etc. In other words I guess to say a 10 year old swedish school boy could write the same articles isn´t exaggerated. While tabloids should respect Royal families, I think that many of the stories on the Royal families shouldn´t be taken so deadly serious. One could mean those "journalists" at the scandinavian tabloids have never heard of the word "satire" or an appealing writing style.

We can dream of that, but nowdays I rather imagine a typical day at the court like this:
8:30am Ann Christine arrives at the Royal castle

8:35am Ann Christine shouts at the young trainee Sophia, that she should make coffee

8:49am: Ann Christine drinks coffee and eats her second breakfast. While doing she notices a new article of Daniel Nyhlén on the Royal family. She reads it highly alarmed and she takes a few post-its out to order her thoughts. Nervously she writes them down.

9:10am Ann Christine places a tack on the chair of Elisabeth Tarras Wahlberg

9:12am Ann Christine removes the tack of the chair. She has remembered, that she will need the help of ETW later

9:15am ETW arrives. The "god morgon" between her and Ann Christine is quite "cool"

9:30am The crown princess arrives. Ann Christine is smiling like a cheshire cat. "Daniel Nyhlén has again written rubbish, but her royal highness doesn´t need to worry, I will dispose the problem"

9:35am Ann Christine writes frenetically a counterstatement with WORD. The tongue is hanging out to the right side, while she writes.

9:37am: Ann Christine has pressed a wrong key and the whole text is gone.

10:05am Ann Christine has finished the text. The webmaster arrives.

10:07am Ann Christine strokes the butt of the webmaster and says "Can you please put that online at once?" While he does it, she grins triumphantly

10:10am Ann Christine decides, that it´s again time for a break. She eats a piece of cake, that Sophia had to bring her. After that she slowly removes the crumbs with a table vacuum cleaner. Later she tidies her pencils. They don´t have all the same length, so she decides to point them until they have the same length

10:30am The crown princess asks Ann Christine something via the inter phone. She forgets to put it off

10:45am Ann Christine can hear, that the crown princess calls someone. She notices, that it´s a private call to Daniel Westling. She puts the inter phone louder and tells the webmaster angrily, that he should play his computer games without sound.

11:05am: Elisabeth Tarras Wahlberg comes to Ann Christine´s office. She wants to talk about a mistake, that Ann Christine has made -> http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache...jernberg&hl=de She shouts at Ann Christine, that she should know to which agencies exclusive picture rights are given. Ann Christine regrets, that she hasn´t placed the tack on the chair. She decides, that she won´t talk to ETW this day anymore.

11:06am ETW wants to leave the room and notices, that the webmaster surfs on porno pages. He splutters: "Ehm...I´m doing ehm...some research...those bastards...want to ridicule again...the Royal family" ETW raises her eyebrow and leaves the room

11:15am Ann Christine decides to go through a few informations until the noon...so she´s taking out the TV magazine and the weekly schedule of Dramaten (theater in Stockholm)

11:55am Ann Christine starts her lunch break

01:05pm Ann Christine comes back from her lunch break. She orders coffee from Sophia (who hasn´t had lunch break, because she had to put all folders in order...since 6am)

01:10pm Ann Christine calls her hubby and talks to him for 20 minutes

01:30pm The crown princess leaves the office. She has Elisabeth Tarras Wahlberg in her tow.

01:35pm Ann Christine checks the official schedule of the Royal family and notices, that the crown princess has an awards show in the afternoon and that the Royal couple opens an exhibition out of the town

01:40pm Ann Christine packs up her coat. Then she makes a note in her time card "stayed until 17:30". Before she leaves, she shouts at Sophia, that she has to be ready with all the folders until tomorrow.

01:41pm Ann Christine goes to her car (Sorry for "abusing" the thread on Madeleine, but this comes to my mind, when ACJ is discussed)
