What a cute little girl and what a wonderful message from her mother.

Thanks for posting Sarahbellar
I can imagine Adrienne's wonderment at seeing the snow for the first time. Such a cute photo. And she looks indeed so much like her older sister.
And if this was taken today, then indeed they are not back in Florida

Adrienne is a beautiful baby; it looks as if the family got to spend a snowy New Year's in Sweden - quite the contrast to Florida!

We'd be working on a file, and then get a call from Minister X because Joe Public came to their office and their visa hadn't been issued, even though the due date had passed.

Because it's now a Government Official asking us to look into something, we'd go and find Joe Public's file, see what was holding it up, and either finalize it or send the Minister and Joe Public a message detailing exactly why it wasn't ready.

A lot of the times, it was just that we were behind schedule and Joe Public was somewhere at the bottom of the To Be Done stack. The Minister intervening just made us move them up (but everything had to be okay with their file. Even if the Minister called, if things were wrong, Joe Public wasn't getting their visa.)

Again, just normal, ordinary people do this.
I guess that depends on the country. In the Netherlands where you don't have a district system, so nobody is specifically representing people from a certain area, that would be frowned upon. I am not saying it never happens but it certainly is not considered part of the job. Representatives of all kinds of organizations on the other hand will most likely try to speed up the process (but are mostly unsuccessful as far as I can tell).

Nonetheless, an intervention for a princess wouldn't surprise me - especially since she has a diplomatic passport. However, I still wonder what kind of visa issue suppossedly had not been sorted out before they moved to the States months ago.

Svensk Damtidning: "The court tells more about Madeleine's trip to Sweden"

Madeleine arrives to Sweden to attend with queen Silvia on 7th February at the charity dinner due to the 20th anniversary of the World Childhood Foundation.
Margareta Thorgren told to Svensk Damtidning that Madeleine has several work-related things booked in during her days in Stockholm. However, she wants to wait to go out with additional information.
- This is a work trip for the princess, Thorgren says.

Madeleine and Chris's good friend Mia Parnevik tells about Madeleine and Chris's wonderful life in Florida - and that they come over to Parnevik's luxury villa for dinner.
Madeleine and Chris have previously spent time in Florida, in the house Chris owned in Palm Beach. Now the couple live in a luxury house of 750 square meters, with seven bedrooms and exotic fruit trees outside the windows. There is not only one but two pools on the plot.
In Florida there are also the couple Parnevik, Jesper and Mia, who are good friends with the princess couple for many years. After the princess's break-up from ex Jonas, Madeleine lived at home with Parneviks for a while, secretly, in order to stay away.
But now there are more enjoyable times in Florida for Madeleine and family.
- It's great for them. She feels, they feel quite at home. It is nice for them to live somewhere where one gets to create themselves ... yes, which we knew from the beginning, says Mia Parnevik and refers to how Jesper was always known as "comedian Bosse Parnevik's son" instead of getting to stand on his own feet.
- For Jesper it was incredibly nice to come here and make his own thing and create his own name. Because she is a princess it is not the same, but I still think it will be a little easier to be her own.
Mia Parnevik says she got to know Princess Madeleine through Childhood, and was told that Madeleine met Chris O'Neill.
- She told me that she had met such a great guy!
Parnevik says that it is "really nice" to have them close again, and that they try to get Madeleine and Chris and the children visiting them.
- We haven't seen them so much here lately. We have tried to get them to dinners, but we have not managed to get together because all the schedules. And they have small children, it's not like really "now we take all the kids and go". But yes, they are amazing.
- We only have great things to say about them, he is so funny! And they are so cute together! They were here and we had some dinners with some other common friends, just before they moved here now. But we meet as soon as we can. We saw in Palm Beach last.
- They build their lives, it's really great, says Mia Parnevik.
- I am happy for their sake, that they can run their own race.
Expressen has sought the court, which does not want to comment on the friendship.

While she was in Sweden, Madeleine attended also at her friend Ellen Dinkelspiel's 40th birthday party, in which also princess Tatiana attended. Svensk Damtidning tells that the party was held in Wallenberg family residence Täcka Udden at Royal Djurgården. Ellen's mother Fanny Sachs is married with Marcus Wallenberg.

Parneviks lyxliv – avslöjar mötena med Madde & Chris
Based on your translation, I got the impression that they have not had dinner together at the Parnevik house since they moved to Florida. They had dinner together with some friends before the move -probably when Chris still had the house in West Palm Beach, see Palm Beach reference- but apparently have not seen each other much in the last 6 months since they moved to Florida.

Madeleine was photographed at a beach/pool in Miami on Sunday. Expressen writes that also Leonore and Adrienne were there.
Margareta Thorgren said to Expressen:
- It is their private life, the court doesn't comment on what they do privately. The whole royal family appreciates outdoor life and to be out in the nature and be active.

Stoppa pressarna reveals were the photos of Madeleine enjoying sun with her children were taken.

The Swedish royal entertains herself at the exclusive Faena Hotel on Collins Avenue at Mid Beach in Miami.
The luxury hotel is not a normal five star hotel, it is extremely luxurious.
Only hotel guests have access to the hotel's private swimming pool and beach which is completely private. But Madeleine has fixed so she can come and go. An advantage directly linked to her royal title, which she has chosen to keep.
Stoppa pressarna has also been in contact with a Swedish businessman who lives in Miami. The Swede is very successful and accustomed to moving in exclusive environments.
- I've been to Faena a few times and eaten. It is expensive. The food is good, but not amazing.
The Swedish businessman, who usually lives half the year in Miami is a really globetrotter and very picky.
- It's a bit of "Versace" all over it, it's a lot of gold everywhere, including a mammal skeleton in gold. The decor feels French and 60's at the same time so it's pretty cool, says the businessman who hasn't been at the pool or on the beach.
- I don't think you can hang out there without staying at the hotel if you are not called Madeleine and are princess of course, concludes the businessman.
The court does not want to comment on the Swedish princess's luxury stay at the exclusive hotel.
- We do not comment on Princess Madeleine's private life, says Margareta Thorgren.

A quick look online shows that one can book the Faena Hotel for around $1,000 a night. While that is certainly a lot of money, it doesn't seem insanely outrageous for a wealthy person requiring high privacy (one can spend much, much more that even at Disney World, for example). I would venture that many such hotels provide memberships or day rates for persons that wish to use their facilities but not actually stay the night - after all, "normal" hotels will also sometimes do that.

Expressen tells that when Madeleine comes to the launch of the book she is one of the authors, also Chris and the children come to Sweden.
Margareta Thorgen:
- The plan is that they will come to Sweden in early June to then be able to stay in Sweden over the summer. The whole family will come to Sweden. It is also on the occasion of the National Day on June 6. Princess Madeleine and Mr Chris will be present on the National Day at Skansen in the evening.
How it goes with Leonore, Nicolas and Adrienne is not determined.
- So far they have not been involved, says Margareta Thorgren.
But it seems to be a longer time in Sweden for the family.
- Just for long journeys with three small children, the plans are that they will come to Sweden in early June and then be able to stay in Sweden over the summer, says Margareta Thorgren.
The summer plans for the family, on the other hand, are not entirely set. First, Madeleine will work with the launch of the book, then there are some official program points up to Midsummer.
- Then it is summer and then the princess family is usually a longer period at Öland, Solliden. Princess Madeleine spent a long time here in Sweden last year, due to the descent. Then the princess and the whole princess family have been to Öland, as they always are during the summer months, and then Princess Adrienne has also been with her siblings and mother and father over Christmas, says Margareta Thorgren.

Madeleine and children spent time in Miami with Dag and Natalie Werner (Adrienne's godmother). They were seen also at the photos I posted previously. More photos, Dag was playing with his and Madeleine's children at the water. Photos taken on 6th April.

Stoppa pressarna about Madeleine and Chris spending time in Miami with Dag and Natalie Werner. After they had spent time at the hotel's pool and beach, Madeleine guided them to Brickell City Center, one of Miami's exclusive shopping centers, which is the perfect place for a relaxing break on Saks Fifth Avenue, Bally and Acqua di Parma.

Margareta Thorgen said today to gossip magazine Hänt, that Madeleine will come to Sweden in the end if May.
However, it is unclear how long Madeleine will stay in Sweden.
- I don't know. But she will stay for a while due to, among other things, official dutie, but also for her book that will be published in early June.
Even Princess Madeleine's children and husband Chris are expected to come to Sweden, but it is unclear whether the whole family will come together.
- Yes, they will come. Then I don't know if they come in one squad, says Margareta Thorgren.
In the Royal House's calendar, at the national day celebration at Skansen, it says that Madeleine should be present, but it does not mean that Chris will do so.
- It may change. It is completely dependent on. That is why we await that notification, Margareta explains to Hänt and continues:
- If we write names and then there are changes in it then the media calls and asks why it changes and so on. Therefore, we choose to wait until we definitely know.
