I think she simply doesn´t want to go or thinks, that it´s enough to attend the Award ceremony and gala on Saturday.
I know about two modes at universities. Either you register for a test/finishing a paper on short nice (so let´s see 3 weeks before). Then one, who would want to go to the second dinner, would avoid things around this date.
Or dates are given out in advance (beginning of the term etc.). This year the dinner is on Sunday, so in the second case she could have finished things before (e.g. test on Monday, having finished on Sunday afternoon...in fact it´s even best to do fun things on the day before an exam)
Maybe some cruel universities make "surprise test" and announce them 2 days before, but then Madeleine would not know, since these dinners are planned a long time in advance.

But it´is of course nice, that some expect the very best. The world doesn´t need more negative Lenas

Oh, of course it could be, that she has an other important appointment on Sunday (e.g. long planned birthday of a friend etc.)

Madeleine is tied at 8th place (with Gywneth Paltrow) in Hello's Most Elegant Woman 2005's poll

Quote:
Equal 8th – Princess Madeleine (2%)
Sweden's young princess continues to fascinate the people of her homeland, where every twist and turn of her romantic life is followed with great interest
She was beated by Princess Mary & Princess Letizia, but beat Princess Alexandra of Denmark.

This past Tuesday, 17 January, Princess Madeleine was out shopping at the sales in the shopping streets of the posh Stockholm part Östermalm. She spent three hours going around to different stores, with two big Säpo guards following her closely behind. Among the stores Madeleine visited were Byus, Rizzo, Zadig & Voltaire and Tessie.

According to the Expressen article, Princess Madeleine at one point of her shopping spree thought out loud as she wondered “I wonder if DonDonna has anything new”.

After the heavy shopping, the Princess rested at Östermalmshallen (market hall).

I believe I once read (somewhere on our Forum) that Madeleine is 1.70 cm, which is 5 ft. 7 for our Anglo-members. Pretty decent height, although not that tall for a swede!

In Canada, the average female is 5''4...so Princess Madeleine would be considered tall. Not sure what the average height for females in sweden is, since you said Princess Madeleine is not considered tall.

How tall?

I think she is 171/172cm.
She is taller than her sister and with heels as tall as her brother.

I sympathize with Madeleine who has exams on Monday. I, also have exams all of next week and am not looking forward to it. :( (Biology and Art History are interesting but still....I don't like studying ) Hopefully after studying hard for her exam, she moves to NYC, does some good and has some fun.

I was also wondering, is Madeleine a godmother to anybody's children, particularly in the royal circle? Victoria seems to be the godmother choice for many royal couples.:)

The second article is about a 21 year old man, supposedly a friend of Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine, who was caught in a raide at the posh club The White Room in Stockholm. The police raided the place early on Sunday morning, and the man in question was taken to the police station and had to give a urin sample and was then released.

The father of this man says that he's innocent and very against drugs, and that he has garanteed his father that he has never taken drugs. He also felt violated by the harsh treatment by the police, who were apparently very aggressive, put him in a cell and stripped him of his clothes.

The second article is about the interview that Princess Madeleine granted the telegram & news bureau TT this week, Yennie has posted a short summary and translation about another aticle about it here, and I might post a translation in the next thread on Princess Madeleine (this one will be closed now).
