The Royal Court has announced that Princess Madeleine, Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland will give birth to her daughter in New York City instead of Sweden, which was her parent’s wishes. As the little princess will be born in North America, she may not have succession rights based on future arrangements (to be in line for the Swedish Throne, a royal must be raised in Sweden.)

Here is the announcement from the Royal Court:

After careful consideration and in consultation with the King and Queen, Princess Madeleine and Mr. Christopher O’Neill decided that their children will be born in New York. Birth is estimated at the end of February 2014.
Princess Madeleine and Mr. O’Neill kindly request the media to respect their desire for your cooperation during this special and happy time.
Further information will be given at birth.
Svante Lindqvist
Marshal of the Realm

The couple’s engagement was announced on 25 October 2012 and Princess Madeleine married Christopher O’Neill on 8 June 2013 at the Royal Chapel in Stockholm, Sweden.
