I'm not sure she'll have to relinquish any.

I agree that this child should have the right to choose her citizenship, and her destiny. I tend to think that the triple citizenship is ultimately more advantageous to someone who will most likely have to earn her own living than a title and/or a spot in the line of Swedish succession. But she ain't my kid, and it ain't my decision.

Aftonbladet met Carl Philip on Saturday night, he was excited to tell them about the happiness of his family:
- Both Sofia and I are really excited for my little sister and Chris . It's a strange but totally awesome feeling when your sisters get children.
Speaking of children. Are you thinking for own children yourselves?
- Sure, probably beginning to get a little hungry, but now I long to meet the new family member.
When will you see her ?
- We will wait to go down until there after first storm has subsided and hope to enjoy the company of the new family in peace.
The king and queen have already been allowed to meet their grandchild. Guess you're a little jealous. What have they said about her?
- Yes, but our turn will come. Mom and Dad wanted to obviously see her as soon as possible and when we spoke they gave the little girl a lot of accolades, she's very nice.

Not to get too off topic, but I think the difference here is Argentina does not allow citizens to give up citizenship. US citizenship can be given up at any time.

this photo reminds me a lot of the pic of victoria and daniel leaving the hospital with little estelle :)
needless to say, madeleine looks superb and the picture shows one happy young family, which is beautiful to see!
can't wait to hear the name of the little one. i think it will have 'lilian' somewhere in it. :)

I found some articles claiming that Princess Beatrix has dual citizenship, but it seems more like she was eligible for British citizenship but never claimed it.
Queen Máxima had to keep her argentinian citizenship as Argentinia doesn't allow to rennounce a citizenship.

Bernadotte O'Neill sounds like a Gaelic/Irish Lords name

the press conference:

Aftonbladet TV: Chris: "Jag är överväldigad just nu"

i think chris handled the press very well! it's nice how he did this alone, unaccompained by court personnel. it clearly means they trust him, the fact that he's on his own. he sounds relaxed and very normal and down to earth, like any dad would.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts on the surname. I didn't realize that Bernadotte was only the name of the family's Dynasty and not their last name too, that was interesting.

I didn't realize it wasn't done over here anymore - thanks for the confirmation Molly.

Thanks for this. I wish we could get a close up of the little one's face. Madeleine is looking very well and happy!

Annika Sönnerberg has confirmed to Expressen, that the cabinet meeting will be held next week.
– "It is true, the gathering is in Stockholm next week. It will be held on a working day. That is all the information we have now".

To relinquish the US citizenship for the new baby would complicate the life for the whole family. You can not live on US soil without either being a citizen or have a permit, either temporary as for ex. a student or have a green card. To renounce your citizenship would make it almost impossible to get a green card.

I'm gonna put in a last minute name-bet
Lilian Ewa Silvia

..but i'm pretty sure i'm going to like any name they'll choose; as long as it's nothing from the 'Bob Geldof' or 'Jaime Oliver' ranges of child-names

The baby would probably receive a diplomatic passport, as I'm assuming Madeleine has. So, not a big complication, I would think.

There you go! Sounds nice, doesn't it?
Now let's see what happens! Will the Little girl be a plain ms. Bernadotte O'Niell or will she get an unprecedented title?

She will get a title. I thought that was already sure.

Agreed with you! I guess we will have to wait and see what is decided sooner or later.
