If the stories are true, I think the King is quite right to find out what Madeleine's plans for the medium term are.

Maybe it is too early for her to answer? The relationship is still quite "new" and "Young".....

I dont think it has much to do with the relationship but rather with the general perception either as working princess whose place is in Sweden or socialite who choses to do her own thing abroad.

Its not that Madeleine can return to Sweden each time a relationship has failed and tell the King here I am, give me something to do.

I agree with DoM, there really should be clarity if Madeleine is to be a working princess or not.

What exactly is a working Princess? This definition seems to differ by who you are talking with. When I think of a working Princess I think of a novel that I read several years ago by Danielle Stelle. This Princess worked as a volunteer for the Red Cross and actually worked in the field. Prior to this she did other work. Another example would be (in another book I read) a Princess who worked for a bank or corporation or something similiar and had regular hours that she worked. The job may or may not. include a salary This would be one definition of a working Princess.

Going to ribbon cutting ceremonies or attending an opening event may or may not be work depending on the circumstances. Usually this is part of the job description of someone who is royal.

In the novels that I read, the Princess in question was left alone by the press. They generally were not hounded or hunted down by the press as they had people around them who were good at keeping secrets and good at protecting them. This is probably one problem that a princess could encounter and this would make working difficult. Especially if others didn't know that she was a princess and once they did, she would be treated very differently then by others.

yeah reading those accounts i always brushed off the "party princess" label some slapped on Princess Madeleine. but reading those 2 articles it seems all she has alot of free time a rather light workload.
and likes to take in NYC while locking lips with her BF and she gets paid for it by the taxpayers ...nice job if you can get it

The situation is untenable and she wont get away with it for much longer. If there is no clarity on what Madeleine actually does it will create some long-term damage for the monarchy, again.

The SRF are badly in need for good and sugary news = Victoria announcing her pregancy. It will cover the unpleasant stuff for quite a while.

She could at least make a trip to Sweden once a month or so. The Swedish people are paying for her apartment, her transportation, her shopping, her meals (including unnecessary cocktails and eating at high end restaurants, etc). So the least she could do is show up or start making her own money. Like I said the king has got to put his foot down.

I bet the king, queen and the information department are praying everyday to hear some good news from Haga.

It was about time that someone started to wonder where is the money Madde uses comming from. Took them long enough...

Its unprecedented that a royal who isnt heir/ess doesnt regulary work for the crown and lives abroad but is still funded by the state. Sweden is sitting on a powder keg here. Its the only country that nurtures its spoiled and lazy spares.
The Spanish Infantas work for the crown from time to time but also work for money. The Dutch princes work, ML of Norway also works and even gave up her HRH, Harry is a full time soldier etc etc.

Västerbottens-Kuriren quotes Expressen:
King Carl Gustaf requires that Madeleine is coming to Sweden this summer. The king has given clear orders which led to a settlement in which the princess will be at the Monaco wedding and on Victoria's birthday.

A year is enough time to lick her wounds. I'm sure she's enjoying the anonymity that comes with living in New York City, but as long as she's living off of the Swedish taxpayers, she should be living and working in Sweden. If she wants to stay in NYC, she should resign her salary/comission(?) she gets from the Swedish State/Parliment/taxpayers(?).

In this world-wide economic climate Madeline and Carl Philip state-funded lifestyle could prove to be the end of the swedish monarchy. The Dutch Princes, Prince William and Harry and Princess Martha Louise do as many royal duties as these two siblings and they have actual jobs

I'm sure Madeleine is a perfectly wonderful person, but we all know women who've been cheated on or have been cheated on ourselves....it sucks and it hurts. That said, we're grown ups about it and we pick up the pieces and we move on with our lives. We don't run away from all our responsibilities for nearly a year and suck up the taxpayers' kroners.

Basically, if I was her parent, I'd tell her to get her butt back home or relinquish the HRH and title of Princess/Duchess and go on living as Madeleine Bernadotte. Seriously.
