Adrienne looks like Leonore!

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

I had a dream: Let's connect our thoughts together, than we have a mission, let's connect our feelings together, than we have a mood, let's connect our dreams together, than we have a vision and let's connect our mission, our mood and our vision together than we have a perfect life.

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.

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.
