Good luck with that, Jackie O would say.

This broken engagement was one of the main stories in the Sydney Morning Herald online. I was surprised because the huge celebration in Denmark, more so Mary's mother-in-law's 70th birthday, didn't make the headlines in this particular paper. Well, non that I saw. Jonas! Jonas! can't believe you would be such an idiot.

The breakup was covered by the news organization CNN here in the United States, which surprised me a bit.

And, like you, I haven't heard much about the celebrations in Denmark from any really well established news outlets. I guess it's just not as juicy.

In here, I just found this article

Magdalena de Suecia rompió con su novio - El Colombiano

It just announces the break off of their engagement

The news has been in Huffington post for several days and this evening it was on the Yahoo news site.

I checked HuffPo and sure enough, it's been there for about four days. It's in the style section, though...was it ever on the front page?

Madeleine made front page news on Yahoo! In the U.S. we get news mainly about the British royals. Looks like the SRF won't be so unheard of after this. People love a good scandal.

According to Aftonbladet, the king has decided that no one in the family will comment on the separation. The king visited yesterday the county hospital Ryhov University to award a prize. Aftonbladet asked:
- Well, the king has no comment on the broken engagement?
The King didn´t answer. But his eyes said perhaps more than thousand words.
Victoria visited the Institute of International Affairs. She just smiled kindly and shook her head when Madeleine´s separation was mentioned.

More details of Princess Madeleine split emerge as she finds solace in work - hellomagazine.com

Not sure whether this has been posted before - but some more suggestions why the couple split including Madeleine's increasing number of breaks to London and New York. It also suggests that Jonas may have been the one to break the engagement once the rumour about his affair went public but it was the Palace who pursued him to wait until Madeleine had left the country for America before the separation was announced.

Whatever the reasons and who ever made the final decision will remain private.

I hope that both parties can move forward

The King is probably very angry with Jonas and himself.

Royal court chief said the King rarely gets angry, but what parent wouldn't get angry at this situation?? The king probably thinks he should have discerned this about Jonas, but who knows.

While I think that the SRF's privacy does need to be respected, I'm not entirely confident in the idea of just staying silent about this whole ordeal is the best way to go about this. Surely there's a better way than to just not say anything?

It's probably just the way this sentence is written, but this makes the King sound really menacing.

If the royal household something, they will either ignore it. Or examine it word by word then find someway of twisting it around.
It, in my opinion, is better to stay silent about the matter. Then the less rumours that fly around.

Do you think that this will effect his career?
I mean, morally/ethically, his reputation has gotten a BIG dent. That is something a lawyer cannot use.

An employee can't get fired for his love life, so as long as hes good at his job he will be fine. But it may reflect badly in terms of up coming promotions, but he wont lose his job. It should only affect his personal reputation, but his professional one long term wont be tanked, (assuming he got his job on merit and not position). Just look at how many politicians cheat and are still able to carry on with there careers.

So much for her escaping stories in the press by coming to the U.S. I wish Madeleine all the best in whatever her future holds.

Again, that is American way, who knows about a country ruled by royality. I would certainly want my business/company to be on the good side of the king. Our presidents come and go.
