They never married. The engagement broke off. Jean had given an interview where he said he could not go on with the wedding because he wanted to be true to himself.

Don't forget about Prince Gustav (spn of Pss Benedikte) and Elvire Pasté de Rochefort, engaged in 2000 - 2001.The wedding was planned to take place at Paris on 12 May 2001, but was postponed. The couple later decided to go separate ways.

And of course, we can add the broken engagement of Princess Madeleine and Jonas Bergstrom to this list. Does anyone know how far the wedding planning actually progressed for this couple?

Yes, I am aware of these dates. There was never a wedding date announced- is anyone aware of any other arrangements completed during the eight months of engagement?

Arrangements of what kind? Like a church picked or flowers booked things like that?
If the engagement wasn't going to plan I would have thought they would have put off making plans.

Very interesting...

Thx for all that information, albeit of "things that never were."

We can also add Lalla Soukaina Filali, the niece of the current King of Morocco & Hicham Alkhomayri. They were going to marry but the engagement was called off.

And as for Tatiana of Oldenburg: isn't her husband-to-be, Count Axel de Chavagnac, also a Catholic? He is French, or Belgian, I suppose...

I don't think there was any marriage planned, but princess Margaretha of Sweden was in love with Robin Douglas-Home in the 1950ies but it came to nothing, whether it was because her mother and grandfather was against it, or if it was Margaretha's own decision not to marry. He later had a short-lived romance with princess Margaret, countess of Snowdon in the mid-60ies.

Queen Silvia told to the press on 12th April 2010, that there wouldn't be a wedding for Madeleine and Jonas in 2010. And on 24th April the swedish royal court announced that the engagement was broken. Because Victoria's and Daniel's wedding was such a high profile event, I have always thought that Madeleine and Jonas would have got married in 2011.

I would think that by early April 2010 there were doubts in the family about a marriage between Madeleine and Jonas. If Madeleine and Jonas had had any plans for a wedding in 2010, it would have been unlikely planned before mid-October, probably not until November, as 2010 was an election year in Sweden and I don't think that the royal family would have wanted to have a wedding in the middle of an election campaign. The election day was September 19, and with the possibility of a change of government, mid-October would have been the earliest possible date. Spring/Summer 2011 would have been a better bet.

Princess Madeleine said in an interveiw after the engagement that she wanted a winter wedding. So we might have seen a November/December wedding if it had all worked out.
