The Swedish Royal Court yesterday announced that Princess Madeleine and Jonas Bergström have called off their engagment. The announcement comes after weeks of media reports that the pair’s relationship is in a crisis, and allegations that Mr Bergström had cheated on his fiance.

The official statement read:

“After careful consideration, Princess Madeleine and Mr Jonas Bergström made a joint decision to go seperate ways.

They have come to the conclusion that the best thing for them is that they move in opposite directions.

Princess Madeleine and Mr Jonas Bergström appeal to the media to show them respect and consideration for this decision. They need peace and quiet in this difficult situation. Extreme media coverage will not ease the situation for them.

We ask for your understanding that no further statements will be provided.”

Princess Madeleine and Mr Bergström became engaged in August 2009 after dating for several years. Princess Madeleine will be travelling to the US this weekend to visit Seattle in connection with the World Childhood Foundation.
