Smile Favourite colour

In the early summer of 2003 Madeleine gave an interview to Ljusnan magazine and said her favourite colour is blue.

She also said it´s blue, when she gave an interview to Aftonbladet in winter 2003.
I wonder if her apartment(s) are furnished and painted in blue (in combination with other colours of course). Personally I think blue doesn´t fit to Madeleine as person. At least not for dresses. Well, light blue is ok for her.

When Madeleine visits nightclubs it boosts its popularity, the owners contacts Madeleines friends and asks them to bring her and they will get free alcohol and the best table

Can we expect a contra statement from Ann Cristine Järnberg on this one? Its not a Nyhlen story but still...

Thank you, Larzen. But actually it was Yennie´s task, since she has posted the article :) It´s nice, that you´ve helped out. But swedish-speakers aren´t always online. So I suggest (and the other moderators at TRF) that the one, who has posted an article should write a short translation/explanation, so that other non-swedish (or norwegian, danish...) speakers understand about what the article deals.
And to Yennie, it´s super-nice that you provide us with articles, but please write 1 or 2 sentences explanation. What I´ve seen your english is quite good...so it shouldn´t be a problem :)


And yes...I´m quite sure Ann-Christine is already writing counterstatements, with a diabolic grin on her face and so hard, that her fingers get sore

Swedish channel TV4 wants Madeleine to join the party for the winner of the swedish version of "pop idol" at the night club Kharma.
According to Expressen Madeleine and Jonas are big fans of the show (seems the Royal children watch all the trash, the swedish TV-channels offer).

http://www.expressen.se/index.jsp?a=206623

Well, if Madeleine had the intention to come she now probably will back down. Expressen should act wiser. If they would have waited they maybe would have gotten pictures of Madeleine at the party.

So far she only holds one protectorship, and that is the one of 'Min Stora Dag', which grants very sick children a wish.

Is that like America's "Make A Wish Foudation"?

I think it's very similar to that...the English translation is something like "My Big Day..." and I think the idea behind the organization and what they do is very similar if not exactly like the American, "Make a Wish Foundation."

Summary of the article below:
The article says that Emma Pernald, Prince Carl Philip’s girlfriend, has become one of Princess Madeleine’s closest friends – almost like an extra sister. They like to spend time together - and sometimes go for walks, go to the cinema, shops and cooks together. A “friend” in this article says that Emma is happy spirited, honest and not as ingratiating like others can be towards Princess Madeleine. This past summer the two girls spent a lot of time together at Sollden, where they sometimes went for walk with their caps drawn in front of their faces.

The article:

Pr. Madeline will be one of the Royals featured this Sunday on the E! True Hollywood Story: Young Royals. It is on American Cable TV this Sunday at 8pm. I think this episode is two hours (most are only one hour). I saw the preview for it and she was pictured. The show will also replay at 11pm.

is this really true?! Never heard of it... (its from E! quiz)

3. Which royal has dated Aussie swimming superstar Ian Thorpe, the Thorpedo?
Answer: [D] Sweden's Princess Madeleine. At a January 2003 dinner in Stockholm, the princess met the Australian Olympic gold medalist, who was in town for a World Cup swim meet. Promising the princess a "fast time" if she watched him compete, the Thorpedo broke his own World Cup record two days later. Ultimately, however, their romance didn't float.

THORPE PROMISES SWEDISH PRINCESS A FAST TIME
5:05pm

STOCKHOLM, Tuesday: Ian Thorpe has joined Princess Madeleine of Sweden at the Annual Swedish Sports Awards Gala Dinner on the eve of the the FINA World Cup swimming meet to be held in a snow-drenched Stockholm over the next two days.

After an enjoyable evening, “The Thorpedo” wasted no time in returning the favour and has invited the stunning 20-year-old Princess to the first night’s swimming (Wednesday morning, Australian time).

Australian team High Performance Director, Greg Hodge liaised with the Swedish Royal Family and organised a seat for the 20-year-old Australian Swimming superstar to the Gala Dinner, held in an indoor Ice Rink next door to the Australian Team’s hotel.

To the surprise of his Australian Telstra Dolphin team mates and support staff, Thorpe bobbed up on National Television, sitting next to Princess Madeleine.

Hodge said: “It was such a hoot. We all sat back and watched on the television from our hotel rooms and here’s Thorpie sitting next to the Princess on Swedish national television.

“I spoke to Ian when he returned to the hotel (early I might add) and he said he and the Princess had a very enjoyable evening. They were both delighted by the event, so much so that he invited her to watch him swim and be a special guest of the Australian team at the pool tomorrow night.

“Ian has promised that if she came he would produce some speedy performances in the pool.”

Thorpe will swim only the 400 metres freestyle on night one, before making his international debut in the 200 metres individual medley on day two after already defeating Dutchman, Pieter van den Hoogenband in a world class 200 metre freestyle in Paris at the weekend.

The 16-strong Telstra Dolphins team have all but recovered from a food poisoning scare that saw only four swimmers compete at the Paris meet. As the snow falls in Stockholm a rejuvenated team will look to reinstate themselves in the pool in Sweden prior to the lead up to the final World Cup meet in Berlin, Germany on January 25-26

Madeleine and Ian Thorpe, that would certainly have made the headlines if it was true.

From the Quiz~
7. Answer: [C] They all have dyslexia. While both Prince Carl and Princess Victoria trained in the Swedish military, only Princess Victoria attended Yale in the United States. Princess Madeleine "studied" in England.

What do they mean she "studied"? Are they implying that she didn't do much studying?

They mentioned on the show. I must say I was surprised when I read about all of this this morning.

Depending on one´s view of life, this show may increase your admiration for the lillasyster or decrease it. They talk about her reputation enough. The party princess and everything. I just hope either way, people find out more information before just judging from this show alone. In fact, I hope they come to TRF and the other boards!

Princess Madeleine, ihas two dukesdom she is Duchess of Helsingia and Gestricia
I do not know why and i think its the first time anyone has two dukesdom.

Victoiria and amdeleine is the first princesses that has dukedoms in their own right

Helsingia, or Hälsingland, is a historical Province or landskap in the north of Sweden. It borders to Gestricia, Dalecarlia, Herdalia, Medelpadia and to the Gulf of Bothnia.

The coast line on the Gulf of Bothnia, called the "High Coast", has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The land still rises at the rate of about one centimetre per year, as an effect of the last ice age that ended in the 7th millennium BC.

Arms granted in 1560. In the original representation the goat was not standing on its hind legs. The arms is represented showing a dukal coronet. Blazon: "Sable, a Goat rampant Or attired and hoofed Gules."

Gestricia, or Gästrikland, is a historical Province or landskap on the eastern coast of Sweden. It borders Uplandia, Westmannia, Dalecarlia, Helsingia and the Gulf of Bothnia.

Arms granted in 1560. As with other provinces the arms is represented with a dukal coronet. Blazon: "Argent Hurty an Elk stantant Gules attired and hoofed Or."
