Madeleine om sorgen efter Max Stenbeck Nyheter Expressen

''
Trafficking in Stockholm. "You get a little afraid of the dark when you know how many millions of children are victims of this everyday in world," says Madeleine.

Almost two months ago the court announced that Princess Madeleine moved to Sweden.
Now she has had time to do more official engagements in Sweden and in an interview, the Princess speaks of what she thinks about human trafficking and sexual exploitation, her move to Stockholm and the tragic news that Max Stenbeck passed away.
- It's clear that it's really horrible. We all think of Sophie and her family and are there for them, says Princess Madeleine.

After about four years in Manhattan where she lived with Chris O'Neill came the news that the family, with little Leonore, is moving back to Sweden. In Stockholm, the princess resides in one of the apartments of the royal Royal Court, and on several occasions, Chris O'Neill and the princess, who is happy to be back on Swedish soil, have been sighted in the capital.
- It's great to be home with family and friends. It's fun, she says.
No risk of collision
In connection with Madeleine relocating to Stockholm the court also confirmed that the princess will give birth to her second child in Sweden. During the King's and Queen's state visit to Finland recently the Queen spoke to Expressen saying that Madeleine's second child is scheduled to arrive in June, the same month that Prince Carl Philip and Sofia are getting married.
But there's no risk of collision between the wedding and birth as the wedding is scheduled for the 13th of June while the child is expected to come at the end of same month.
Madeleine who had their first child in the US is confident about giving birth in Sweden.
- Yes, I will. It's an exciting time ahead of us. There is a lot of fun going on, says the princess.
But it is not just the happy news for the princess. Two weeks ago, Max Stenbeck passed away, only 30 years old, affecting the princess. She has been friends with his sister Sophie Stenbeck since childhood and her father, Jan Stenbeck, who died in 2002, was a friend of the king. Sophie Stenbeck has previously praised the princess's and The Queens work against human trafficking and their interest in charity issues which they have in common.
- It's really horrible. We think of Sophie and her family and are there for them, she says.
Max Stenbeck is not the only heavy topic for Madeleine, who recently attended a conference on human trafficking at the Clarion Hotel in Stockholm, where she spoke at several lecturers, among other things, grooming county administrative work to identify what it is that brings trouble and help refugees who are coming to Sweden and carried away, and in some cases subjected to various kinds of abuse.
Madeleine tells us that it has been a hectic day but these are very important issues and she thinks it is completely unacceptable that there are human trafficking and sexual exploitation, 2015.
- It is completely unacceptable. It's really terrible and it's such a big problem in our society. You get a little afraid of the dark when you know how many millions of children are victims of this everyday in world, says Madeleine.
What has made the biggest impression on the princess?
- I think the whole day has been interesting. It has been hectic but the issues raised are so important, so it is difficult to say that one is more important than another. But there is a big problem regarding all of the unaccompanied refugee children who disappear. It was a big part of the morning which was spent talking about the problem. This afternoon we have just covered grooming. It is also so very scary to see how many young girls there are who are victims of this and do not dare say anything. They take on this and believe that it is their own fault. It is so important and we need to reach out, it is not their own fault. It is the responsibility of adults to be there for young children and ask how they really feel, really listen and ask questions again. It takes a lot before reaching the youth and there are so many, unfortunately, who are doing very badly and who suffered atrocities which exploited them sexually.
During the day there has been talks about the Internet and smartphones as a platform where many of these people seek contact. The Princess has a child herself and waits another. Are you nervous or worried that your children should be contacted in any way?
- Of course I am. Again, it is so important that we adults take our responsibility and really ask our children, and talk to them about what they do. That you tell them not to put information about themselves or where they live. This is so important. It's scary. As mentioned earlier in the day, a few years ago with Alexander's case. Before, perhaps there were computers in homes which everyone used for information, now most use a smartphone where one has internet access. There is so much more accessibility, it is scary, says the princess.
The Internet is incredibly important - also
Anna Hårleman De Geer, General Secretary of Childhood, adds:
- At the same time, the internet is incredibly important for children. It is available as a part of our society. It is very important that the internet may be used for good purposes as well. But it happens, as we spoke earlier, many times children know what others are doing in real life, thorugh the internet. One would never say to their children that it is okay to go to a dangerous place in life, it's the same thing on the internet. There are places that you do not go either, she says.''

It seems the picture was from the same series as a picture Princess Madeleine posted of Christopher and herself on 6 September 2013.

The court updated to their calendar some days ago that Madeleine will attend with the royal family to the opening of the Parliament on 15th September. Margareta Thorgren told to Expressen that Madeleine travels to Stockholm and back to London on the same day. Madeleine has decided to attend because it is an important event. Madeleine comes alone, the children stay in London and Chris has another trip and like he has earlier told he can't attend to all royal duties, says Thorgren. Madeleine attends at the church service and at the opening of the Parliamentary session, but not at the performance at the Royal Opera in the evening, then she has already flown back to London to her children.

I think that for once the court has made the right decision. At least we got a clarification about things before a certain event...

Princess Madeleine posted about Princess Lilian on her facebook:
''My beautiful auntie Lilian would have been 100 years old this year.
In her memory there is an exhibition about her and her dresses at the Royal Palace called "The Lilian Look"!''

Madeleine posted on Facebook a photo of her and Leonore in London at the Swedish Churches Julmarknad. She said, "Picture from the opening of the Swedish Church in London Christmas Market. It was lovely to meet Father Michael and people from the Swedish community!"

Didn't princess Margareta use to open the christmas market at the Swedish Church in London? If I'm right, it's extra nice to see Madeleine taking up the tradition.

Yes she did!! In this article from January it says she stopped in 2008ish because she no longer wanted to drive to London. She prefers her private life.

"For 40 years she had a yearly mission: To inaugurate the Swedish Church Christmas Bazaar in London. But seven years ago, she resigned from the assignment because she no longer wanted to drive all the way into the city. The vicar of London, Michael Persson, has continued to have contact with Margaretha."

Expressen updated their article:
On Thursday, Princess Madeleine and Little Princess Leonore visited the Christmas fair in London organized every year by the Swedish Church. On her Facebook page, Princess Madeleine uploaded a picture where she appears together with little Leonore in herarms. - It was an unofficial visit, but one planned by the princess who thought it was important to carry out because of these times and because of the terrible things that happened in Paris. The Swedish church is an important gathering place for many Swedes in London and the Princess therefore wanted to visit. There is also a tradition in the royal family, previously Crown Princess Margareta inaugurated the event and even Queen Louise has made visits, says the court's Communications Margareta Thorgren.

The Christmas market in the Swedish Church in Harcourt Street in London is the meeting place of many London Swedes.It offered Swedish Christmas food and handicrafts - from homemade mulled wine and sweets to the glass and fabrics. Michael Persson, vicar at the Swedish Church in Sweden, tells how Princess Madeleine went around and talked to all visitors. - She went around and greeted everyone and spoke to every one and noted the different stalls. She was wonderfully friendly, pleasant and well-read. Then when you have a small child with you it melts hearts, says Michael Persson.
Princess Madeleine and Little Princess Leonore spent about two hours on the market.
- They were here for two hours and the little princess was absolutely adorable.
- They tried everything from mulled wine to warm sausages and bought fresh bread and the congregation had to donate an Advent candlestick with Swedish sphagnum moss, red berries and small mushrooms.


Royal Visits


The Christmas market has a long history, and according to Michael Persson has been held for almost 100 years. There are 250 volunteers together with the staff attending the Christmas market that finances the Swedish Church's London-based assembly. Princess Madeleine's visit on Thursday was far from the first time that the Christmas market received a royal visit.
- We've been at it for nearly a hundred years. The royal family has always been committed, before it was Princess Margaretha who inaugurated it, and now Princess Madeleine came for a visit. Before that it was Queen Louise who came here and turned on the canvases and saw that they were finely sewn in, says Michael Persson.

It would have been nice had Princess Madeleine opened the Christmas Fair, but Madeleine has never been overly fond of wearing National dress, which really is called for on such an occasion. Seeing both Madeleine and Leonore in National costume would be lovely.

Thank you everyone - those are lovely photos of Madeleine and Leonore at the Christmas fair. Leonore is adorable, and I love her little shoes. I wonder why Nicolas wasn't there, though maybe Madeleine thought that it would be better to take Leonore since she would be beginning to appreciate such events.

Does Chris live in London yet?
