Some of the press has been speculating about Madeleine and the hockey player Henrik Lundqvist. According to SvenskDam, Henrik has been together with his girlfriend Therese Andersson for seven-eight years. They live together with their dog at a beautiful apartment in one of Manhattan's most expensive skyscrapers.

Thanks for further info - is the pic of Madeleine in New York (Taxi) an old pic from last year?

I could be mistaken, but I thought I saw that pic when she was in New York with Jonas a few years ago. The pic may be in one of the older threads. I remember he went in the car first and then Madeleine followed.

It is, 2005 I believe. It think they are just using it because they dont' have any other current picture of her in the US, or New York for that matter.

The photo of Madeleine was taken in 2006 while her and Jonas lived together in New York.

If it's true perhaps she is not coping too well after the break up and being on her own.

I knew the tabloids just put them together just to make news, but my god I would have thought they would have at least bothered to get if he was even single first! She breaks up with a cheater, and the papers make her a fictional 'other women', nice.

Tabloid reporters aren't renowned for their stunning intellect and researching prowess.

Sweden's Princess Madeleine: Too heartbroken to attend Seattle event? -SeattlePI
Newly-single Princess Madeleine cancels appearances as sister Victoria steps in - hellomagazine.com

Madeleine´s calender has been cleaned up until Victoria´s and Daniel´s banns on May 30. According to the informationschef of the court, Nina Eldh, Madeleine needs peace and quiet. She doesn´t feel good.
Prinsessan Madeleine mår inte bra efter brytningen med Jonas Bergström, ställer in offentliga framträdanden i Seattle, USA | Bröllopet | Aftonbladet

Daniel Nyhlen asks, how sad is Madeleine really? She is said to be devastated, so sad that the court cancelled her duties. But according to eyewitnesses, it seems Madeleine is no way as cracked as alleged in newspapers. She is often shopping in New York and visits the best restaurants. On Tuesday, she was at Balthazar restaurant with Lovisa de Geer and Sofi Fahrman. Nyhlen wonders that it seems strange that the princess cancelled her official act in Seattle, where Victoria is now forced to go, when she sits at the same time with her friends in NYC's luxury restaurants.

Perhaps this was the plan all along to get Madeleine there and then cancel her engagements. Maybe because it wouldn't look good running to America. Thats really sweet of Victoria to step in and take her sister's place. Madeleine must really be heartbroken. What I found strange from the beginning, was the fact that right after the break up announcement, she came to the US for such engagements. What woman after such a traumatic time would want to do that? The court should have just let her take time off from the very beginning.

Well, you cannot infer a person's psychic state that easily, I believe. Just because Madeleine looks like 'enjoying' some rather casual activities at the moment that doesn't indicate automatically she's feeling sort of content right now. I would like to emphasize that you don't need much concentration when shopping or having normal conversations with friends at a nice restaurant whereas you have to focus quite a bit on official duties, viz. it would be far more obvious then if your thoughts and emotions were actually directed towards something else...

Did the court say that this wasn't an excuse to get her out of the country, but rather long planed working trip? I feel for Madeleine, I really do, but she shouldn't have opted out of her duty. Shes gotten more attention then I would have thought possible in the U.S., but this is ridiculous to have her older sister fly out not to just another country but another continent to fill in last minute.

After my friend's funeral, a bunch of us decided to go out to eat rather than go back to his family's house and be surrounded by people crying -- it was too much. So we went out and had a nice lunch and shared some laughs about our time with him and if someone just randomly took a picture of us at that table, they'd think we'd lost our minds -- wearing funeral black with veils on our heads, laughing like nothing is wrong.

Doesn't mean we weren't mourning, sad or greatly affected by his loss. That was just how we chose to deal with it. So if Madeleine is out with friends and trying to move on, just because she's eating a nice meal and smiling occasionally doesn't mean she's not in some kind of pain.

o.k. don't get mad at me, but here is the flip side of the coin. It seems as if people want Madeline to be locked away in her castle tower, going thru tons of tissues, crying her eyes out over her broken engagment.
Well, maybe she's not that upset over it. From the reports that have been out, maybe she saw it coming and just needed her family or her friends to justify things for her to make sure that she was doing the right thing. Maybe she is o.k with being single, but is maybe a little embarrased about the actual announcement of both the engagment and the breakup. maybe she is embarrased about being confronted by the press asking about his cheating. I can understand her not wanting to be asked stupid questions and wanting to get away from things until is some what dies down. Because she knows that the pity party will start up again when her sister walks down the aisle. And by pity party, I mean the pity that the public is giving her. And in actuality, she is a much stronger person than she is being given credit for. And since the news followed her to N.Y., maybe she is just cancelling appearances because she is being hounded again by the press. Once again, with them asking stupid questions.

If she wouldn´t have gotten engaged to the man, who had cheated on her 2 months before the proposal, she wouldn´t have those problems.
She was acting immature and is doing it again.
Of course it is actually about the press, of course it is humilating, but now she is just triggering the whole circus again, makes the Royal house like a docu soap seeming.

Hurt or not, its her duty to show up and do her job! She was set to appear at a set number of events, and its her responsibility to show up them not pass the buck on press or not. It's immature to have her sister fly over to cover for her while she goes on vacation for the rest of the month.

I agree with you 100%. Extremely well put and correct that everyone reacts to sorrow [of any kind] differently.
