Princess Madeleine and Family Moving to London, 2015

In the beginning of February Madeleine, Chris and Leonore registrated themselves to Sweden.
On 22nd April Chris informed the Tax Agency that he has emigrated to Great Britain, Expressen quotes Aftonbladet.
The National registration confirms to Expressen that a document from Chris O'Neill came in on 22 April.
The court would not currently comment on O'Neill's decision.
- I can not answer that right now, says Margareta Thorgren.

Oh dear, by now Chris should have an understanding on how the Swedish press finds out about anything....
Fine with me that he moves to London, I expected this to happen and most likely Madde will follow suit soon. However they should realize how fast things leak out and it would have been much better if they had done a small interview and announce their departure from Sweden themselves.

Now Expressen has edited their article
According to the Royal Court Princess Madeleine and Leonore will move at the fall.
- He is there to prepare for the next accommodation for the family, says Margareta Thorgren.

** So all the time the family has planned to move to London? And they think that the press will not find out that Chris has emigrated to London? And when the press finds out, Thorgren says that she can't comment. After a while she comments that Chris is in London to prepare the house to the family. Haven't Madeleine and Chris told at all to Thorgren what they are doing, when Thorgen isn't capable of handling the situation?

And now Thorgren to Aftonbladet
Chris O'Neill works mainly in England. It is true that he is registered in the UK, says Margareta Thorgren.
Princess Madeleine and Leonore are still registered in Sweden.
Aftonbladet can reveal that Madeleine and her daughter will move to the UK together with Chris.
- The whole family intends to move to England sometime in the fall. Already in December, we said that the Royal Mews was a temporary solution. There has been a plan that the family would eventually move on. Chris's business is primarily in England. Now he is there and also preparing new accommodation for the family which will also be extended, says Thorgren.
Is there a new accommodation they have chosen?
- There is nothing that we comment, says Thorgren.

It sounds like when the PR people say "we have nothing to comment", they actually mean "hey, that's an interesting question, we hadn't thought of that, gonna call M&C to see what they think"

Hopefully poor Margaretas job will get a bit easier now that the fidgety O'Neils packs up and leave town. They must've been quite a handful...

I thought they registered to life in Sweden.

How they going to live in London if Leonore has to be educated in Sweden if she was given a title? I'm confused.

I'm not sure about the royal press office.

to me it is pretty clear: Madeleine and Leonore live in Sweden, while Chris commutes... And we still don't know if the whole family will move or not... At the moment, Madde is about to give birth, so it is unlikely she will move to London during the summer

Expressen has once again updated their article and called Eva O'Neill, she was leaving to a dinner.
It was big news in Sweden today that your son and the family move to London. How do you comment on that?
- I know nothing about when they are going or what they do. I'm sorry, I wish I could give you more details.
Is Chris here (in London)?
- No, unfortunately.
Is he in the country?
- I do not know where he is. I'm sorry.
But you do not know why he moves.
- I'm sorry, but you must speak with Christopher about this.

When the family moved from New York the court sent a press release in which they wrote that Princess Madeleine and Leonore were registrated to residence in Sweden. According to Margareta Thorgren Chris O'Neill registrated to Sweden because he needed to be written somewhere.
- He has never really lived here permanently. He has his business in England.
The family is now looking for a home in London or around London, according to the court.

So Chris registers but doesnt live in Sweden? He only registred there because he has to register somewhere? First the family is moving to Sweden and now they are saying that they never indended to stay in Sweden? And the court confirms all of this? Who are they trying to kid with this PR strategy?

Thorgren refers to this press release from last December and claims that they never intented to stay in Sweden.
"Princess Madeleine and Christopher O'Neill have left their rented apartment in New York. They intend to find new accommodation in Europe.
Where is not yet decided, and the family is in no hurry with this decision. In the current situation, the base is flat in Stockholm."
Prinsessan Madeleine och Christopher O'Neill lämnar New York - Sveriges Kungahus

But at this article in Expressen in February it is said "Princess Madeleine seems to have the ambition to stay in Sweden for more than a year, under the title "My stay in Sweden" has the princess chosen the option 'I'll live in Sweden "and written "permanently". She could also have chosen a specified time to her stay, but chose "permanently".

Princess Madeleine and Family Moving to London, 2015

Just saw this, probably the explanation for him not attending royal functions.:
“Chris O'Neill has left Sweden and has moved to London. The family intends to move to the UK and Chris has his principal business activities in England and he has moved there now. He is there to prepare for the next accommodation for the family. Princess Madeleine, Princess Leonore and the new baby are expected to move to London in the fall. Mr Chris O'Neill has no greater desire than to be with his family as much as possible.”


Margaret Thorgren, the royal court’s spokeswoman

Now that CP is getting married I expect Chris and Mads to slowly become more and more private and once CP and S have a baby I expect to see C & M once or twice a year at most.

Gosh I wish they'd make up their minds where they're going to live! Do they have any idea how much grief they are causing us here with their indecision and moving around the world at the drop of a hat?

I'm not sure it's not a made up mind. The rumor has always been they'd live in Europe and not Sweden. I don't see why this comes as a surprise to people.

According to Expressen, Madeleine and family will move to a house in Belgravia which Eva O'Neill owns.

that's interesting, i thought they were flat hunting for their own house some time ago. maybe eva's property became available last minute? eva lives in the lovely eaton square, so i guess that's an address fit for madeleine and chris :)

i wonder how long they are planning to stay in london. is this a permanent move?

I'm not surprised at all. I think that London is a natural and practial base for them. Chris can run his business from there, and Madeleine can quite easily fly home to Sweden when/if she wants to.

The problems is - just as always with these guys - that their PR and information skills are below zero. Consistency. Information. That would help them a lot.

I supect that Roslyn wrote her comment with a heavy dose of irony, didn't you Roslyn?

I also agree with hernanmeispekka that they had a plan from the beginning. When they came back to Europe it was never announced that they'll be 'moving to Sweden', the announcement said 'to Europe'. Sweden probably never was a long-term option because of Chris' business plans. There is no point denying that London is a business hotspot in the financial world. They probably stayed in Sweden for a while with Chris being busy to set up his London base all the time.
