The headline of Aftonbladet: Look, she is working
Titta, hon jobbar! | Nyheter | Aftonbladet

Finnish MTV3 quotes the article of Johan T Lindwall in Expressen. Lindwall admits that he was quite harsh towards Madeleine before the Christmas, when he wrote that Madeleine was so absent-minded, that she would have been fired if she would have worked for a joint-stock company. Madeleine came to Sweden to meet Estelle. It was believed that she would soon jump to the plane and fly back to New York. But the king had different plans. The criticism for Madeleine has been very tough for the king. That is why he has filled up Madeleine´s calendar. The king wants to make it clear to everyone, that his daughter isn´t lazy. By putting work engagements to Madeleine´s calendar is wanted to be shown, that she is needful. Madeleine has visited many organizations during the last days, Lindwall says that he has never followed Madeleine in town so much.

Madeleine isn´t listed to attend the visit yet. She has a project trip to Texas on 28-29th March.

Daniel Nyhlén criticizes the media about how they treat the royals, they should have asked from Madeleine how much she works for "Min stora dag" and other important questions, when they met her.

Now we have taken the initiative to publish more information as you can see what the the princess does, said Bertil Ternert, director of the information department.
Is he trying to say that Madeleine pre-critizism used to secretly attend events in Sweden that nobody knows about? Yeah, sure

Madeleine left Sweden on Friday. Finnish TV-presenter Jethro Rostedt told to MTV3 entertainment news, that Madeleine was at the same plane with him on Friday, from Stockholm to Munich. Madeleine flew in business class.

Nice article, glad to see a journalist taking up for Princess Madeline. She makes some valid points, imo. So, thanks for posting!

Finnish Iltasanomat quotes Expressen:
Madeleine went from Sweden to her favourite Verbier for a skiing holiday. Only a few people recognize royals in Switzerland, but a lucky one got a photo of Madeleine with a pipe deep in her head and ski goggles on. Madeleine was skiing with her best friend Louise Gottlieb, Andrea Engsäll (a friend of Victoria) was also with them. Madeleine seemed to be on a very good mood. On Saturday Madeleine was seen walking at the main street of Verbier at 17.00 o´clock. Chris O´Neill and the friends of the couple arrive from the States to Verbier this week.

She was on a skiing holiday after Christmas and now again.

I agree with the concept of the article but disagree with the reference to Harry. Harry does part time royal work but is a full time soldier. That's a big difference.

Swedish House Mafia played on Madison Square garden on December. Madeleine attended the concert and was hanging on backstage afterwards.

And why not. Nothing unusual for Swedes go leave for the Alps for long weekends, short vacations or even longer vacations of skiing. It's winter and the only time for skiing.

This article has reached Billed Bladet as well: Billed-Bladet - Royale eksperter: Stop kritikken af prinsesse Madeleine

And another expert, Kjell Arne Totland, is quoted for saying to the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet: "I am also among those who have always believed that the critisism of Princess Madeleine has been unfair and exaggerated. She is doing a great job for her mother's relief organisation in New York and she is generating a lot of attention on the work they are doing".
- Ikke mobb Madeleine - Kjendis

And Totland continues: "I also think you should have an understanding for/feel empathy for that the Princess after the dramatuc and very publis break up with Bergstrøm, felt a need to get away and start on a fresh in a new place - fully accepted by her parents. I actually believe that the family is proud that Madde has managed to get back on her feet and reestablish herself again, as she has".

I also think that this whole issue becoming so prominent in the media has a lot to do with the dysfunctions of the family (enforced (?) break-up from Jonas, the King's affairs & embarrassment to Queen Silvia etc). Had Madeleine quietly gone to NY without all the fuzz around it, with a short info that she wanted to work for her mothers foundation in NY, nobody would mind or had asked any questions. Its only because of that "running away from it all" taste to the story. Madeleine loves her status and a big entrance, what didnt help, neither did the everchanging story of her apanage.

To me its no question that she will remain a Princess of Sweden but, like in Spain, they should have made clear from the very beginning (and if its not true then its the way it should be handled in the future) that she will be paid for her work in NY by the foundation and that she will be paid for attending swedish events by the King. And then go and live your life as you want. What is so difficult about it.

Personally I don't understand much of the discussion.

1) the king is free to do with his money what he wants. If he wants to dump it in the Baltic sea he is free to do so, if he wants to give his daughter an allowance he is free to do so too.

2) I think it is sensible for those removed from the throne to find a carreer/ something useful to do with their lives. And princess Madelaine seems to be doing just that. A situation as in Belgium where the younger children of the monarch are having a representative role and a state allowance will give much more criticism these days. It seems that most of the critisicm is just based on envy and misinformation (the latter being helped by the utterly incapable & always blabbering Mr. Tennert)

3) Her brother doesn't seem to be doing much more engagements, while he is NOT having another job. So why not focus on that if the situation needs to be critisized. Instead the press seems to be busy with representing his girlfriend as the next best thing to mother Theresa.
