Princess Madeleine at the top of a power list

Today in some of the Swedish press, one can read that the life style magazine "Stureplan" (which is not only the name of the magazine, but of the posh little neighborhood in Stockholm where the hottest clubs are situated, and it's also a bit of a financial center with many companies having offices there) in their next isse will feature their own "Sweden's 100 most powerful people" list. This is also not a normal "power" list as to what one would traditionally classify as power (politicians, corporate leaders etc), but more about people who have the most "power" over the daily lives and trends of the people.

Princess Madeleine is listed as nr 1 on this list. The jury's motivation for their decision is as follows:

"Today one of the world's most glamorous, famous and liked royals with a constantly developing finger top feeling for style. In Sweden there is no one else which the brands of Stureplan would rather be associated with than Madeleine. No one can create trends and commercial hits on their own as she can. Madeleine therefore has a power position like no one else at Stureplan."

The Top Ten:
1. Princess Madeleine.
2. Sofie Fahrman, fashion writer for Aftonbladet
3. Quetzala Blanco, Expressen.
4. Jonny Johansson and Mikael Schiller, design director and president of Acne.
5. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, fotball star.
6. Johan Lindeberg, founder of J Lindeberg.
7. Björgólfur Thor Bjorgólfsson, Burdarás/Carnegie.
8. Anders Timell, restaurant manager for Teatergrillen and Riche.
9. Leif Pagrotsky, Minister for Culture.
10. Filip Hammar and Fredrik Wikingsson, program hosts.

One would mean these Stureplan-ppl are Madeleine´s friends (wasn´t she at the wedding of the owner/editor of the mag??) and now they put her on the top of such a list and explain, that she´s most associated with the Stureplan...and just the other day Madeleine told us about her being a serious student in the past years. Life is hard...always when you try to control it, other people mess it

Did Madeleine ever have braces? Or Victoria? I don't remember Madeleine or Victoria having any but both have unusually straight teeth for no braces. I know Carl Philip got his somewhat recently.

Princess Benikdte of Denmark is Madeleine's godmother, right? If so, are there any pictures of them together? I feel that royal godparents/godchildren don't exactly spend a lot of time together. Understandable because they're usually in another country being the King/Queen or Crown Prince/Princess. I've seen Queen Margarethe at Prince Carl Philip's confirmation but that's about it. I also hope that Madeleine is given a royal godchild in the future. Victoria seems to be the godmother of Europe (as Crown Princess that makes sense but she has two perfectly good royal siblings!), it would be nice if the role got passed down to Carl Philip and Madeleine (they could at least be godparents to younger siblings of future heads of states).

Yes, Benedikte is one of her godparents. I don't think there are many pictures of them really, I guess they mainly meet at big official royal events and maybe occasionally at private festivities.

I also hope that Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine and the other young royals of today will get to become godparents in the future, and I think they will eventually.

Maybe she is and maybe she isn't. But nothing to me suggests that she would be. Madeleine hasn't been given the chance to be a godmother to royal child or any child for that matter. She's 23, was a full-time student and is now doing an internship at UNICEF. I think she does her official duties with poise and confidence. Not many 23 year old royals do as many functions as she does (for a non-crownprince/princess).

Ahh...yes, a tabloid dream come true. They would make beautiful babies but Madeleine doesn't seem like the girl who wants the spotlight on her 24/7. I think she's pretty content on being the beautiful princess who gets special treatment who can have more of a normal life than a crown princess would. Plus, if she married into the BRF, can you imagine all the Diana comparisons that would happen and all that would go with it?! And she would be much more known around the world, especially in the U.S. (Madeleine just went to NYC to get some down time from the Swedish press so I don't think she wants her "haven" to get Madeleine-crazy).

I hardly think Princess Madeleine would want to marry into a family like the Windsors. After all they are not known for being the friendliest of families.

I think that story about William and Madeleine will never end. It's just spectacular story! But I agree that they would make a perfect couple!

The BRF may not be known for being one of the friendliest but I don't think they would be hard on Madeleine. First off, she's done more official work than William (pretty sure), is a princess and duchess in her own right, and is very pretty. :) So if they were mean to her and it was leaked to the press; it wouldn't just be the SRF that the BRF would have put up with but probably the whole country of Sweden as well.
