The King says about
- advice to the Crown Princess: "They never received any advice. It's symptomatic of all young people. It belongs to the course, they will try their roads themselves. "
- how Prince Daniel manage their new role: "I do not want to do some form of assessment, he has just started. But they're very ambitious both and it is very, very nice to see."

No, Princess Madeleine wasn't present this year!

That hasn't come surprising as she wasn't listed in the official calendar..

The king had obviously some party for the close relatives, because count Carl Johan Bernadotte and his wife Gunilla were also there.

So wrapped up in the royal wedding I didn't even realize he had a birthday.
It's crazy that Madeleines not there. That's not a smart move on her behalf. It's only a matter of time now before she can get away with this.

Judging from the reactions, not a smart move on their side... But at least we know that the Queen is probably not as anti-Sofia as it has been reported.

Duke of Marmalade 05-05-2011 09:04 AM

I dont mind Sofia attending, its a private party and why not invite the live-in partner of the brother? It would be a different matter if Sofia started attending public birthday or namesday events of SRF family members.

What bothers me more is that Madeleine choses not to turn up, she doesnt seem to have the slightest sense of duty or feeling for her highly paid "job", by the taxpayer.

Iva 05-05-2011 09:53 AM

Unless they get engaged, there's no way for her to officialy attend those public celebrations and I don't think that she'll just stand in the crowd somewhere clapping, cheering and so on. Whatever my opinion on Sofia is, I don't mind her attending the private party, she's CP's partner after all. Too bad that the info of her presence leaked out though...it may indicate that she's accepted by the SRF and at this point it's not good for anyone.

I agree regarding Madeleine, she should have been there.

Madeleine is not paid by the taxpayers, besides the royal children are wealthy in their own right to support any lifestyle they choose.
