Nothing about that at the royal calendar yet, Madeleine attends today at "Min stora middag" in Stockholm.

No, there will be no official celebration of Madeleine's birthday, as she doesn't want that. She will celebrate her birthday in private with her family and possibly also a party with her friend Louise Gottlieb, the same way they did when they celebrated their 25th birthday.

Actually, a public ceremony which won't be held this year did indeed take place before her private party in 2007 - photos from the 'official' 25th birthday celebrated in the Palace courtyard:

I just meant that Madeleine and Louise will probably arrange a private joint birthday party like they did in 2007, celebrating their 60th birthday, not comparing the rest of the celebrations in any other way.

LadyFinn 06-07-2012 12:00 PM

Bertil Ternert told to Expressen that there won´t be any official celebration, just a private party at Drottningholm Palace.
Madeleine is going to celebrate with Louise "Lussan" Gottlieb (as they did when they were 18 and 25) and they have invited 45 of their closest friends, Sofia Hellqvist isn't one of them, she isn't invited, according to Johan T Lindwall.

Finnish MTV3 quotes the article of Expressen (paper version):
Madeleine and Louise "Lussan" Gottlieb had their birthday party already yesterday, this was the party for their best friends.
At yesterday's party arrived also Emma Pernald and Jonas Bergström's girlfriend Stephanie af Klercker (she was invited by Lussan, not Madeleine). But the biggest surprise was that Victoria arrived to the party with Estelle. She was invited, of course, but her attendance wasn't certain. Everyone was happy about that Estelle came along and everyone wanted to greet her. As earlier was told, Sofia wasn't invited.

There will be no official celebration in the courtyard. It is her wish, says Bertil Ternert. Princess Madeleine now lives in New York but has spent a few weeks early summer in Stockholm in connection with her niece's baptism and the National Day celebrations. This weekend the 30-year-old is congratulated by her closest, but the court does not inform more than that.

Madeleine had a party also yesterday in a apartment of Louise Gottlieb's parents in Stockholm organized by Louise and Victoria's friend Caroline Kreuger Nilsson. There were about 10 guests. Chris had flown to Sweden. Madeleine and Chris arrived together with Emma Pernald and her boyfriend Tomas Jonson.

It is also interesting that this small party had leaked to the press, both photographers, Stefan Jerrevång and Peter Wixtröm are professional photographers working for Aftonbladet and Scanpix.

She most likely have had journalists trailing her every minute of her stay in Sweden as she was obviously having her birthday party somewhere. So most likely no leaking of information but just typical nosy journalists hanging around 24 hrs a day. No wonder she has chosen to live in NY.

Criticism to Madeleine because of her choice not to celebrate her 30th birthday in public:
Crown Princess Victoria welcomed people into the inner courtyard on her 30th birthday. Prince Carl Philip as well.
But when princess Madeleine turns 30, congratulations can be made on Facebook.
"Anyone who wishes to leave a greeting to the Princess can do it on royal family Facebook page," writes the court on it's website.
- We have done this way before. Carl Philip received many congratulations that way. And there are many who have asked what to do now and they are happy to do it in this modern way, says Bertil Ternert.
Do you understand those who may feel disappointed not to be able to hand over the flowers and see her?
- There is an opportunity if you would like to congratulate her. The alternative was to celebrate the courtyard and to stand and receive the congratulations, but in this case, the princess chose not to do that and I think that you should show respect for that, says Ternert.

Court expert Sten Hedman is critical to the princess's choice. He had hoped for a public celebration.
- I think it is strange. The little tradition is broken. It is challenging to do this and it gives the wrong signal. It is unfortunate. She could have done it and put up half an hour to receive flowers and cheers. It's part of her job.
Bertil Ternert think it's up to everyone to do what they want.
- It's she who takes the ultimate decision how she wants to be courted. Each one must be able to decide how you want to do it and Facebook is acceptable. ¨

I think Madeleine is doing the right thing with celebrating her birthday in private, there are no reason for her, nor for Carl Philip, to have their birthdays celebrated officially.

LadyFinn 06-10-2012 10:15 AM

Madeleine and Chris arrived today at 14.10 o'clock to Drottningholm. Chris drove a dark Volvo SC60, Madeleine was sitting beside him. The whole royal family is invited to this birthday party this evening hosted by the king and the queen in Drottningholm Palace.

Funny how Carl Philip is nowhere to be found when Emma is around.
