Expressen has today article about Margaretha, the last one of their articles of the Haga princesses.
For many years, princess Margaretha as Margaretha Ambler has lived outside Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire, England. Her little stone cottage is well hidden behind tall bushes and in the village, few are aware that their neighbor is the Swedish king's sister.
When Expressen met her in the village in 2013 she told that she thought it was fine in the country and that she did not miss living in London.
But there was no longer chat.
- I've never set up any interview. And I will not do it now either, princess Margaretha said then.
For 40 years Margaretha had an annual mission: To inaugurate the Swedish Church Christmas Bazaar in London. But seven years ago, she resigned from the assignment because she no longer wanted to drive all the way into the city. The vicar in London, Michael Persson, has continued to have contact with Margaretha.
- What I can say, having met her quite often that she is such an intelligent woman. Had they changed the succession order one generation back, she would be the queen. She would have been a brilliant queen. She is so smart and she and Victoria are so alike. Margaretha is a royal I am very impressed of. That's a great girl, he told to Expressen.

Princess Margaretha's daughter baroness Sybilla von Dincklage celebrated her 50th birthday with a three day celebration in Munich, where she lives. One day was a garden party with pizza and beer. Unfortunately princess Margaretha couldn't attend, and crown princess Victoria was in Denmark celebrating queen Margrethe.
At the big photo Sybilla with her children Madeleine and Sebastian.

In an undisclosed stone house in the English countryside a little bit outside of Chipping Norton lives the Swedish princess who chose to stay away from the spotlight.
The small village is about one and a half hours drive from central London. The roads are lined with light stone or brick houses. They have names "Winchcomb Cottage", "West Manor Cottage" or "Hillside Cottage". Some houses are luxuriously renovated with generous patios and landscaped gardens. Others have remained untouched for several years. The oldest swedish princess has settled here, in a stone house hidden behind tall bushes. Far from both Sweden and her royal siblings, and the glamorous life of London.
And not everyone knows that there is a Swedish princess living in the anonymous house. A woman who is out with her dogs stops in the rain and says she thought princess Margaretha lived somewhere else.
- Doesn't she live in Norfolk? Or had moved home to Sweden? She likes to be by herself.
Opposite princess Margaretha's cottage lives John Pritchard. He moved here in 1984 but says that most of the people still see him as a "newcomer". John tells that he usually meets the princess when he goes out with his dog Toby.
- She is often out walking so we usually encounter each other. I don't know her very well, but she is always very nice and talkative when we meet.
He is aware of that she is the Swedish king's big sister, but he says that it doesn't affect her relationship with the other inhabitants of the small village.
- I don't think there's anyone who really thinks about it, she seems to be a person with both feet on the ground.
Another of Margaretha's neighbors tells that she has never met the princess, but that her mother has had closer contact with her. She says that Margaretha lives an anonymous life.
- I see her sometimes but it rarely happens. She seems to be very nice, but I get the impression she chose to step out of the spotlight. You hardly live in this village if you want to be at the center.
A stone's throw from Margaretha's house is the local pub. John Pritchard describes it as the focal point of the village.
- We know each other in the village because it is so small and everyone is seen at the pub sometimes. But I have never seen the princess there.
The staff inside the classic British pub The Crown know that Princess Margaretha lives just a few meters away, but don't want to tell if she goes there.
- A pub visit takes place in trust between the one who comes here and the bartender, says a woman from the staff.
Princess Margaretha has lived in England since she married John Ambler in 1964. They lived for a while in central London before moving to the Chippinghurst Manor in Oxfordshire. The husband's business activity went on worse, and it ended with bankruptcy in the mid 1990s. Then it became known that the couple separated and they were rarely seen together. They sold Chippinghurst Manor for financial reasons for close to 10 million.
Now, Margaretha lives alone in the house in Oxfordshire. But she seems to enjoy the little village, and the village's residents seem to like the princess's presence.
John Pritchard appreciates their talk while walking with his dog.
- You notice that she likes Toby as well. So we two will be happy when we meet her.

Svensk Damtidning had in last week's issue a photo of princess Margaretha's daughter Sybilla von Dincklage with her friends in Stockholm.
Sybilla lives in Munich but visits Sweden a few times a year in family gatherings. This time she came to Sweden with five friends from Germany to a hen party. They surprised one of the friends with a trip to Stockholm for a hen party. They had four great days with boat trips, sightseeing, dinners and party. The only thing which wasn't great was the weather.

Kungliga Magasinet's articles about princess Margaretha's life and her children at their latest issue.
The magazine writes about Sybilla Louise von Dincklage (born 14th April 1965). She got her name from princess Sibylla and queen Louise. She married Cornelius von Dincklage in June 1998 and got with him children Madeleine (born 1999) and Sebastian (born 2000). Sybilla and Cornelius divorced a long time ago but have stayed as good friends. Sybilla lives in Munich and works with fashion.
Charles Edward Ambler (born 14th July 1966) married Helen Ross in 1999, they have two daughters, Sienna Rose (born 2000) and India Tanni (born 2003). Edward was an artist for many years, but has now driven Ed Ambler Gardens for many years.
James Patrick Ambler (born 10th June 1969) married Ursula Shipley in 2001 and they have two children: Lily (born 2003) and Oscar (born 2004). James works with sales.

Svensk Damtidning tells at their article about tourist attractions in Stockholm, that princesses Margaretha and Birgitta go often to the Royal Gift Shop at the Royal Palace.
When Princess Margaretha is visiting Stockholm, she lives in the guest apartment at the Royal Palace. Svensk Damtidning's reporter met princess Margaretha in the Royal Gift Shop some time ago and Margaretha told then that she liked a lot to buy some small gifts from there.

Princess Margaretha celebrates her 85th birthday on 31st October. She has told to her family that she doesn't want any celebration in Sweden right now.

Princess Birgitta was ready for the royal family party - but now it is set. Here she explains why.
The Haga Princesses together again? Yes it could have been.
In just over two weeks, Thursday, October 31, the king's oldest sister, Princess Margaretha, will turn 85, and when we reach Princess Birgitta, 82, in her home in Santa Ponsa, Mallorca, she states that she was ready for the royal family party. But Margaretha, who lives in the British countryside, does not want to come home.
- Yes, I thought we would gather to celebrate Margaretha - but now it won't be. She has asked not to be celebrated right now, she thinks it is hard to travel to Sweden when it is so cold and creepy outside.
- But we'll do it a little later, so she won't be forgotten!
How unfortunate. It's not as often as you siblings are now see eachother?
- No, it is not that often, so we always try to take this opportunity when someone is turning years. And we had hoped that we would be able to see eachother now, but that may be later as said.

Princess Birgitta tells Expressen that Princess Margaretha's 85th birthday will be implemented later:
- It is a wish to do it when it is a little warmer. Later in the spring I guess, I don't know, she says.

Princess Margaretha celebrates today her 85th birthday.
- Yes, the king with family congratulates the princess, but it is entirely private, says Margareta Thorgren to Svensk Damtidning.
- Of course, it's a big day for the king's oldest sister, and congratulations are made in many ways.
But the birthday child is not in Sweden?
- No, the princess has chosen to stay at home, in England.

Sounds as if it is mostly Birgitta who wants to have a party. Margaretha seems less interested in a birthday celebration...

The Corona crisis hits Europe hard. The situation is bad in England, where princess Margaretha lives.
But according to Margareta Thorgren, princess Margaretha herself is in good condition. The king has contacted his eldest sister to check the situation.
- All is well and the siblings have continuous contact. Especially now in these times, says Margareta Thorgren.

The corona virus has hit Britain hard.
In the middle of the crisis lives the king's sister, Princess Margaretha. She has her home outside Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire, England and has been living alone since her husband John Ambler died in 2008.
Margaretha very rarely participates in royal festivals and events. The last time we saw her in Sweden was at Princess Adrienne's baptism two years ago. And now, during the corona crisis, she has of course kept an even lower profile.
But now sister Birgitta tells how the oldest of the Haga Princesses is doing.
How is Princess Margaretha?
- We have all had difficulties with the coronavirus. But it is important to follow the rules. I have not talked to her in a week but I know that she is fine, says Birgitta in an interview with Svensk Damtidning.

Svensk Damtidning speculates how Brexit affects princess Margaretha. She has lived in England for 56 years and since 1965 she has been registered as an emigrant to England. The focal point is her citizenship. SD asked it from Margareta Thorgren, she said that princess Margaretha probably has dual citizenship, both Swedish and British.
"The British government has not stated that they will limit the possibility of dual citizenship after Brexit", the Swedish embassy in London states.
