Maybe it has to do with her new role as patron? Or with her experience in internship for UNICEF back in 2006?

Sigh . . . Just when I thought that Madeleine had turned her PR disaster around, she is going, not going . . .again. The calendar needs to be set with real dates that are kept. If she is uncertain of attending, the event should not be placed on the schedule. I really like Maddie, and I LOVE the fairy-tale princess party [Well done, Princess Madeleine!], and I want to see you shine again. But you - or the PR office - has to decide if you are in or out on the public appearance schedule. "Maybe" is not a good PR position. Just sighing, again . . .

Same old ... she picks and choses. The fairy tale princess party was one of the events that she just loves because she could play glamour princess with people gushing over her being the picture princess all day long.

But maybe she got sick in the last moment or one of her children is ill. We don't know the reason why the attendance was cancelled. Or do we know if the event has taken place?

I think it was this event:
John Morrison's keynote speech delivered at the UNICEF/GSMA conference on Children’s Rights and the ICT sectors in London today.

What a shame that Princess Madeleine's attendance was cancelled. I was so pleased to see new event added to her calendar and now this...
As I sit at home with severe flu (thank you my dear colleague for spreading your germs!!!), then could it be that she or her children are ill and she had to cancel? But I guess that's not an excuse for some people and she should have attended anyway?

Princess Madeleine, Current Events Part 9: June 2012 -

I am guessing that Pr Madeleine chose to stay in Stockholm to be there for the new baby. She cancelled -again- her presence at an engagement she should have been at.

IMHO she should just not accept engagements when her attendance is not certain. Much better than cancelling at the last minute.

It has been a pattern in the past that attendance was announced and cancelled again. Madeleine has 2 small children, that's a fact, and if the kids get sick what can happen any minute and she wants to look after them herself that's fine, but you cannot build an agenda on this.
So how about announcing attendance a day before, when its clear that everything is fine. Its not that Madeleine deals with matters of state or anything else that cannot be covered by somebody else.
If she's there, it's a nice add-on while a last minute no-show is always bad.

Many of us posters have children right, or have children that at one point in time were small.
If one of our kids is sick, can we just skip work???? I for sure can't.

I have been following Swedish Royal Family since June 2013 and I haven't noticed that Princess Madeleine has a pattern to announce and cancel the events. I do not follow their calendar everyday and have no idea how much of the events were announced and then just cancelled (I've assumed that they just did not publish any pictures from the event, silly me!).
But if this no-show is regular for Pr. Madeleine, then this is very unprofessional behviour from the princess and she should be more responsible in the future! If we do not show at work, we would be fired without notice. Do they fire princesses? Don't think so

Here in Germany it's a matter of course, that a parent of a sick child (until the child is 12 years old) is getting paid days off work. The pediatrician will issue a sick certificate for the parent's employer. Ten days per parent per child, single parents get the full 20 days, so a parent with two children can take twenty days a year off, if single with two kids it's 40 days. There are more rules, but, I think that'd be too much for this forum.

So, for me it is a no-brainer, that, if one of the kids is sick, Madeleine should cancel all engagements. In fact, that's what I'd expect from her. Of course we don't know why this event was on the calendar and why it got taken off again.

best wishes Michiru

I think everyone would understand if that is the case. But it was simply removed from the agenda without giving a reason. If it because one of her children got sich they should tell it.

I think if you have small children with a high risk of feeling unwell and unwilling to have somebody else care for them in this case, I think it is pointless to have an agenda. Its fine if you want to look after your sick children yourself, but very often this is not feasible for people in important positions (unless very severe illness) as they cannot disappoint people who contribute / are expected to attend themselves. I cannot imagine a senior royal cancelling an event because the kid has the flu or a stomach bug, unless it is so severe that they have to go to hospital etc. If you are not willing to leave other people to look after kids with minor illnesses, you should not have a top job or important agenda at all but should take maternity leave instead.

Not sure if this was shared already, here is a longer clip of Madeleine and Leonore at the Make a Wish event.
