So can anyone please translate what the article says his title might be? Or does anyone have an idea what it might be? Oh and is the May ceremony the civil marriage part of it?

He isnt my cup of tea but I appreciate that he has a job, that he wants to keep his job, that he is his own man with his own money. Marrying Madeleine certainly doesnt hurt within the circles both are moving, but in at the end of the day this is kind of an equal marrige (socially, financially). Hopefully their love is strong and not only superficial.

The press is speculating about the title, since it was announced after Madeleine's first engagement that Jonas would be a duke.
The king's solicitor has told that to be able to get a title, Chris must apply for the swedish citizenship (he has already dual citizenship in the U.S. and the United Kingdom).

I think Jonas would have been different since the couple would have lived in Sweden, worked for Sweden. I doubt Chris will attend any events apart from absolutely-must-attend and will continue working in his regular job.

Is it possible to become Swedish and keep two more citizenships at the same time?

The king's solicitor said that Chris could have three citizenships at the same time.

Thanks for your response. I still think its not a good idea for Chris to get a title unless there is a work commitment for Sweden, speaking Swedish. I have the feeling that Chris is not keen to make any more that the must-do commitment towards Sweden.

I agree. And I don't like about the idea that a person has three citizenships at the same time. The citizenship loses it's importance then IMO.

It is not as if Christopher would actually be created a duke or that the title would be his, he would simply be the consort the same as the Duke of Palma or the Duchess of Cambridge. Not really a big deal. Seems kind of sexist in a country that is all about equality to deny him what would automatically be accepted for a female spouse of a titled male.
As for having multiple citizenships well I have them and cannot say it have ever presented a problem for me.

If his title will be by virtue of his wife's title, then it is a "courtesy title", which comes automatically by marriage right..Why to again specifically grant him one?
Though I would personally prefer both of them to live a quiet life in US, away from all things royal, attending only extremly impotant occasions..

That would be the Duke of Hälsingland and Gästrikland. Madeleine already holds this title, while Infanta Cristina (Palma) or Prince William (Cambridge) were only 'named' upon marriage.

Not the worst title IMHO .
Nevertheless I think, if Jonas would have received a title (and this has been announced from the RH prior to the separation), then Chris MUST receive a title as well -- whether from his own right or via his wife. Everything else would be unfair and one could come to the conclusion, that the king is unhappy about Madeleines choice and wedding.
Bye Bine

But according to the king's solicitor, Chris can't have a title, if he doesn't apply for the swedish citizenship.

Do you think that Madeleine and Chris will stay in Sweden from their banns until their wedding or will they travel back to the US and come back shortly before the swedish national day?
