Like Zara Phillips the Swedish kid could do what he/she wants, enjoying all the freedom of 'commoners'. The chance of Madeleine's offspring on the throne is close to zero. If the kid makes the line of succession, it will be subject to scrutiny & critizism because it is supposed to serve Sweden somehow, plus the family wont even live in Sweden on a permanent basis.

We can't compare Madeleine with Princess Christina. Princess Christina had no choice, when she married Tord Magnuson. As a result of her unequal marriage, princess Christina lost her style of Royal Highness and received the courtesy title of Princess Christina, Mrs. Magnuson. Princess Madeleine is still HRH Princess Madeleine, Princess of Sweden, Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland.

The question of where the child is raised could possibly be a trickier one. We'll have to wait and see. My guess is that they will move to Sweden eventuall, but perhaps not until a couple of years from now.
Thanks, Xenobia,
you answered a few questions on my mind.

I guess it will only be an issue in say ten years time, if it turns out that Victoria and Daniel for whatever reason don't have more children and Carl Phillip don't have children either. Then I guess it would be advisible if Madeleine and Chris moved to Sweden at least for a part of the year.
As it would be a big risk and not advisable only to have one young heir to the throne in Sweden in a generation from now.

So we can imagine (and hope) the child will become a just-in-case-the-royal-line-needs-to-be-preserved-spare, because I honestly doubt Chris O'Neil and perhaps Madeleine too, are particularly keen about moving to Sweden and take on the royal obligations with all that entails of both of them. (Madeleine can still perform duties more or less solo).
In that light, what title is the child most likely to get?

Congratulations to Her Royal Highness and to Mr. O'Neill!!!

Wow they were very fast, but not as fast as members of the Monegasque Princely Family!

I think they'll have a little girl (although I also predicted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would have a girl).

Now I hope to see the Crown Princely couple announcing they'll have a second child, and Prince Carl Philip becoming engaged to Sofia Hellqvist.

That are also my wishes. Maybe we have a real year of joy in Sweden.

Can His Majesty The King grant the title of Count/Countess O'Neill to the children of Princess Madeleine?

Like the Counts and Countesses Bernadotte. It would be nice.

True, but I think it matters that Chris doesn't have a title. It seems strange that his child would get one if he doesn't have one. But I guess that's a patriarchal view of things. Since Madeleine is a duchess in her own right, it makes sense that she would get to pass down the title, no? I don't know how titles work in Sweden ...whether Maddie's title is just hers for her lifetime without rights to pass it down or not.

Things have changed, twenty-nine is still young today, but still, mother nature has her schedule, which trumps our human designs.
I disagree. I think it's wise, when possible, to start a family only when you feel emotionally ready for the huge demands of parenthood. You can do that at the same time as being aware of the limitations of Mother Nature.

Stephanie only turned 29 this year. She is under no pressure whatsoever, but has(wisely) chosen to utilize her first year of marriage to become comfortable with her new role.

Kate and William did the same and I think it was smart of them.

Princess Madeleine Pregnant With First Child 12 Weeks After Wedding

Congratulations to the couple! I am sure King Carl Gustav and Queen Silvia will be delighted to have another grandchild.

I laughed at your comment on the Monegasque family!

I think that the Swedish Royal Family can do better than Sofia Hellqvist

Oh, I agree with you, but seems that Prince Carl Philip is in love with her. Crown Princess Mette-Marit was a surprise to us all, Sofia can be the same.

I think we are a bit off-topic now.

Lets wait and see.

No...far from it. The Gotha is rife with pregnancy announcements that came within a few months of the wedding ceremony.

In fact until recently it was the norm, not the exception. Chris and Madeleine are doing it the old-fashioned way which surprises me. They seem so very "modern" in every way I thought they would wait a few years before starting a family.

I have a feeling that the child won't get a title for the moment. His/her father is not titled so I think the child will eventually get a title if, as you suggested, a "need" for more heirs will present itself in the future (which I think unlikely - I expect that CP Victoria will have at least one more child and Carl Phillip will become a father, too)

Am I the only one to think that they were awfully quick in announcing the pregnancy? I know an announcement is usually made during the third month of gestation and this is exactly 12 weeks after their wedding! Had there been speculations in the media I would have understood. Maybe they wanted to actually prevent the gossiping. Or maybe CP Victoria is pregnant, too...

Prince William (6/1982)came along pretty quickly after Charles and Diana (7/1981) were married so I don't see anything scandalous about Chris and Madeleine expecting so soon.
