It takes two to tango! Although the cheating that became public showed a lack of integrity on part of Jonas we do not know how both parties contributed to the breakdown of the relationship.

Although Jonas will most likely not be part of the royal inner circle I believe he and Madeleine will eventually become "friends" so they will be able to meet in the future and be civilized toward each other.

Stockholm has a very small upper crust social circle and they will meet again.

No, Madeleine returned to Sweden on the 11th May. She was one of the organizers of Victoria´s bachelorette party last weekend.

You are of course absolutely correct, it does indeed take two to tango! What a pity it wasn't his fiance Madeleine with whom he was doing said tango!

"A lack of integrity"? What a masterly understatement. Cheating, in the sure and certain knowledge that, as the fiance of a royal princess, your every move will be scrutinized by the media, is the act of a right royal Cad and an absolute Bounder!

If he had wanted to end the engagement there are far more civilized ways than ensuring your soon to be ex fiance suffers the maximum public humiliation. Good grief, even breaking up by text is cleaner than what he did!

I am sure Madeleine will act like the Princess she is. However, should she choose to shove him in the nearest pond or fountain I am sure the women of Sweden (and not a few men) would cheer heartily and be in no hurry to give him a hand out! Ah well, dreams are free.

Nonetheless, the cad, bounder, scum sucking bottom-dweller, whatever you may call him, will be a little light on invitations this year I should think as in such a small social circle it will be a brave hostess or host to invite both he and any members or close friends of the SRF to the same function any time soon.

All of Princess Madeleine's engagements in June until the wedding have been canceled.

She is going to miss the three pre-wedding receptions in early June, her solo engagement at the 'Astrid Lindgren Prize' ceremony, as well as The National Day.
While I found it perfectly understandable that her trip to Seattle for 'Sweden Week' was canceled immediately after the announcement of the break-up of her engagement, I find this latest decision most ill-advised, to put it mildly.
According to newspapers, Princess Madeleine is currently staying in Miami.

I would agree with you I don't think this will be very well received. It is a real shame she won't attend the pre wedding receptions I'm sure Victoria would have appreciated her sister being there

Is it a absolute must that she miss the most important events? Seattle was understandable, but this is beginning to sound selfish to me. This is an important time for Victoria and Sweden and she is missing it? I don't get it. I've seen weddings get canceled and the people still have to move on with their lives. Madeleine herself needs to move on too. This is silly.

I´m sad about that Madeleine won´t participate at her sister´s wedding receptions. We all have our difficulties in our lives, but we just have to go on. Same for Madeleine, I think.

For some reason, I'm really disappointed in her. People go through all kind of things including deaths, divorces, break-ups, financial difficulties, etc. But thats no reason to want to not move on. I think she has it too good. She needs to stop focusing on herself, but on others every once in a while at least.

I agree, she shouldn’t have canceled all her engagements until the wedding. Maybe minimize the number of engagements, but not eliminate them completely. If she wants to avoid undue focus on herself at the wedding, she needs to be seen on an official engagement beforehand. The press need a certain amount of time to ‘talk it out’ when they first see Madeleine again, and you don’t want that to be just before the bride arrives. Somebody isn’t thinking this through clearly.

So instead of participating in Victoria's receptions for the wedding and so forth. Madeline has decided to vacation in Miami, FL instead?

Interesting.

p.s. maybe she'll met up with her cousin Frederik of Denmark so they can party all their troubles away!

I must admit, Florida is thee place to go to have fun. There's tons of theme parks, the beach, cruises, nightlife, etc. But seriously, it's not right to do that. It makes me wonder about the two sisters relationship.

How do you know she is "having fun"? Didn't Victoria come to the States when she needed treatment and they wanted to give her some privacy? And how do you know she's not working for her mother's foundation? Didn't she go to Florida after New York, but before Seattle?

If I read the article correctly it said she was with friends. She could work for Childhood in Stockholm just as much as she can work it in Florida. Going there at this time for work is no excuse. Trust me, it's rare and weird for one to go to Florida without pleasure on the agenda.

It seems to me that you know as much as I do about the situation, which is absolutely nothing.

I agree with you. And even if it's true that she needs time for herself to get over her broken engagement, who are we to criticize her for that. It happened just a few weeks ago. It's absolutely okay to mourn an 8-year-relationship and a 9-month-engagement for a few weeks. I can't see anything selfish with that. It's absolutely understandable, that she's in no mood to take part in some happy pre-wedding events right now. And I think Victoria is the last one to blame her for that. So neither should we.

I never said I knew anything about the situation. I'm going by what we all know from the articles. Whether anyone likes it or not, if her friends are there then she's most likely going to do something "fun" to help her cope with what happened. I do think it's selfish of her and no one is going to sway me otherwise. I don't care how much pain I'm in, if my sister needs me, then I'll be there. I've heard that Madeleline is spoiled because she's the baby and she likes things her own way. Just this once I think she should be there to support her sister on these once-in-a-lifetime events. There's so many people out there who went through a break-up, etc. But they still have responsibilities. I'm sorry if anyone opinions differ from mine.
