Article in Expressen a couple of days ago about Madeleine at the charity gala for the Red Cross in 2011, where she met Donald Trump. The gala was held at Trump's Mar-a-lago at Palm Beach in Florida.

Madeleine, Chris and Leonore in London, a new photo at Svensk Damtidning.
Madeleine was on her way to her training, Chris would submit the application for a new passport and Leonore was going to her preschool.

Svensk Damtidning has a couple more photos at their paper issue.

It is possible to recover from an illness quickly (especially a stomach bug) and get back to your normal routine.

I think that because this issue of Svensk Damtidning was on sale in Sweden on Wednesday, the photos may well have been taken last week.
Here is the article in Svensk Damtidning's paper issue, the article tells that although Nicolas wasn't with the others in the morning, he was seen out later on the same day, and there is a photo of him.

Stomach bugs, especially with small children are often 24 to 48 hour bugs. Besides as lady Finn points out, as this was just published in a print magazine, the photos likely a week or more ago.

Chris looks super unhealthy with a big belly, unshaven etc as if he just rolled out of bed.
Cigarette behind the ear is tacky and really bad example for his children.

on another note - Leonore is almost 3 and still using a pacifier, is this a cultural thing in Sweden?

I'm not sure it is a cigarette. Unshaven is a style and yes he is little over weight. Nothing wrong with her having a dummy whatever works for them.

given the color, mostly white and then tan at the end, it is a cigarette. Besides, we already know they both smoke.

It is a cigarrette and swedish gossip magazine Hänt asks at it's website will someone else in the royal family make the same tough statement as Chris. Prince Daniel? Queen Silvia? Princess Sofia?
A cigarette behind his ear. A doubtless statement that he goes his own way.
We can't help but wonder how the reactions would have been if Prince Daniel, a bit worn and with a white Prince behind his ear, would appear next to Victoria on a family promenade at Haga? Or at his representation work.

The article reminds that when Chris was "new" at the royal family, he showed his middle finger at paparazzis. Such he has stopped now. Today he settles for a nicotine stick against the side of his head. A small revolt in silence.
The article has photomontages of Daniel with a cigarrette behind his ear.

Chris is a private citizen. It's really no ones business if he smokes or doesn't.

Doesn't really matter what Daniel would of done. He's a working member of the SRF. Chris is not. No comparison can be made.

poor chris. i feel kind of sorry for him. he is a private citizen indeed, and refused any royal titles to continue being so, but he still gets all the judgement that comes with being a royal figure. he obviously looks uncomfortable with the situation, such as in the pictures above. it must be an odd situation to be in - when you clearly stated you didn't want a royal title, but still need to show up to some official events, so both you and the press are confused as to where the line is drawn.

Chris might technically be a private person but what can you expect when you marry the daughter of a king and attend high profile events with the royal family. That the press only takes pictures of him when he is with his wife or in-laws but leave him alone when he is not? Sorry but this doesnt work, especially not when you make early mistakes, being arrogant towards the press (refusing interviews, showing the finger etc), when you have non-transparent business and tax irrigularities etc etc etc.

Chris is far too interesting for the press and he can't dictate them what to do or to write.

I'm sure he realized there would be interest because of who his wife and her family are. However he is a private citizen. When he's with the family at some event certainly he's going to get more attention from the media with pictures etc but when he's on his own time in private life he should be left alone and that includes his private business matters. It's none of anyone else's business.

Chris didn't take a title and is technically a private citizen. But he, that very "private" citizen (a husband of a HRH and father of two HRHs), has attended at a largely televized TV-interview in Skavlan with his wife. He has given two long interviews to Expressen in the summers 2015 and 2016. So he doesn't obviously want to be totally private person.

As I already said there are times when he's with the family he is going to expect to deal with media. I'm quite sure he knew this.

However since he is a private person (and I never said he was totally private..obviously he knew there were times he would have to deal with the media) when he is not working with the family or at an event with them/for them etc...he should be left alone.

I disagree - as Lady Finn said, he does interviews in talk shows to promote the 'normal' image, had a televised wedding, attends the high profile events, does interviews when it suits him - and declines them when it doesnt. With this amount of publicy - how can you ask to be left alone, just because it doesnt suit or that you are private in general or especially in this moment?

Madeleine chose NOT to be a private person - she could have done a Märtha Louise and disappear into her private life, her presence or work is not really needed in the SRF. And with this decision, Chris' fate is sealed too, besides, there are lots of paps in London and they will be well paid by the swedish tabloids.

So to me it is just nitpicking on both Chris' and Madde's end - be public when it suits and be private when it doesnt. Not the first couple to find out that this doesnt work.

Chris shouldnt be seen like this is public, with a tacky ciggie behind his ear, unshaven and unkempt, bad example for his children.

Chris probably expected some media interest but I don't believe anyone can be 100% prepared for what actually happens, even for a husband of a minor royal. I view his Expressen interviews and TV appearance as an attempt to balance his odd position in the SRF. Neither completely private or public person. He attends events when he can and is probably Madeleine's lead. How do we know he wanted a televised wedding? His in-laws/Madeleine may have decided a completely private wedding was not realistic. Coverage appeared to be a compromise, ending after everyone arrived at the reception site.

As for Chris's tax issues and businesses, that's between him/his companies and the IRS/tax offices. Did Chris leave the media a big opening? Yes, unfortunately. Is it the end of the world? No.

The middle finger was a dumb move although I understand his frustrations. How many photographs of him and Madeleine doing mundane activities do the photographers need? Yes, he caved under pressure and now the media will never let go.

If Chris shouldn't be seen "like this in public", then why is it OK for Madeleine to be seen like that? Puffy vest, track pants & shirt, baseball cap, sneakers, loose hair, no makeup? Many people look like that on a casual day out. Perhaps he prefers some stubble.
