I don't find it strange at all that Madeleine and her family will be spending Christmas time with the O'Neills. It's their "turn" now...

Yes, it's a completely normal thing for families to take turns each Christmas, which is why I said "I guess I shouldn't have found it that surprising".

But that implied that you were surprised at first

Maybe you missed that, but Madeleine said it the interview at "Skavlan" she and Chris gave...

8*Personajes reconocidos que merecen respeto

the link is in Spanish, it talks about Princess Madeleine, but it is interested to read it all!
the title:
Eight recognized characters who deserve respect

She is Madeleine of Sweden, and clean after her dog does when they go for a walk. It does herself.

Oh dear, I had never see that "particular" photo of Madeleine before.
I guess it's not something usual to see a "posh" princess picking up what's left of her dog, after he relieved himself. But, I think it's what correctness demads. After all, if I am not wrong, it has become compulsive in Japan, or in another asian state, to keep it clean. I don't know the rules in NyC. Anyway, after the first instants of hilarity, that photo reminded me of Zorro, who passed away recently. Poor dog!

It's the law here too, but there are far too many who leave it on paths etc. It is really nice to see that she is just like everyone else cleaning up after her dog. Normal!

Yes, it is! I never had the vibe of a dutiful housewife etc from Madde, but I'm glad she has proved me wrong in this field

Yes, it is really nice to see a posh princess doing the right thing! even though is the law a lot of people don't care and they leave it! I live in Vegas, you know how many times I have in my front lawn people leave it there and don't pick it up?
to say more I have in my front lawn a huge christmas inflatable, a Santa and a snow man, connected by a candy cane and a few days ago I go to check why it is no on and I found my snow man with dog pee! , the dog had to cross all my front lawn through all the lights and sit confortable on the snow man and left it there and the owner probably couldn't care less! I was so furious, wish I would know where he lives! Discussing!


A lot of this people should to learn from Princess Madeleine, no matter what is her status, she did a decent thing! good for her and I have even more respect for her ....... to be so down to earth!

Yep, good for her! She's doing the responsible thing, and also setting an example. If an HRH Princess can do it, everyone else can and should.

'Down to earth' reality is she would have had massive PR problems had she not picked up the dog-poo as a NYC resident. There would have been a public stoning.

What??! Oh no....I thought Zorro was a young dog...he was so adorable. I am surprised and saddened to read that he died.

What happened?

In Switzerland a lot of people (including me) are picking up behind their dogs. We do have specialy 'robidog' wastbaskets which also provide the plastic bags. You find them everywhere

Yes. Details were not revelead, but the court confirmed the news, after it had appeared in the press... The court said he was ill,and Madeleine did was it was the right thing to do: let him go. She even posted a pic of her late do in her fb page, stating that he will be missed.

Dear Moonmaiden23, PM over the Christmas period also put a picture of Zorro on Facebook stating how much he is missed. My heart went to her.
