I just read in a paper that Queen Silvia had commented that there is not going to be a wedding for Madeleine and Jonas this year. :(

Same article in Expressen, translated:

I hope the rumours about their crisis are not true, but if it is true, no need to hurry into marriage. They both are young, better split now and find someone else, than divorce later.

Hello Magazine also has an article about Queen Silvia commenting that there will be no wedding for Madelaine and Jonas in 2010.

Princess Madeleine will not marry Jonas Bergstom this year, says Queen Silvia -

Don't know how reliable the site is though - there articles aren't always accurate.

It has been reported widely in the press that the Queen has commented that there will be no wedding for M&J this year and apparently she has also stated that Madeleine deserves to have some quiet time before her own wedding since so much is going on. According to the press she also said everything is o.k. between the couple.

I would like to see a video where HM comments the issue or a more official announcement (although I doubt that the court will be making any such announcement) to be completely sure about the authenticity of this statement. However, judging by all the comments relating to the issue and by how widely the Queen's statement have spread and been published, I would say it is most likely true. If the court and the royal couple firmly state otherwise then the wedding might still happen this year.

As I've understood it the date of Madeleine and Jonas' wedding hasn't been set in stone anyway, so it would not be that unusual if the wedding was postponed to next year. I can only imagine how difficult and unnerving it would be to prepare your own wedding while your older sister would be preparing her own at the same time! It might also irritate her somewhat that her sister will naturally be in a bigger spotlight and have a larger and more luxurious wedding than her, no matter how funny that sounds (naturally she knows her position in the family). After all, every woman in a way wants to be the center of attention on their wedding day. If her wedding would be on the same year as Victoria's, it would still be considered as the "second wedding" of the year. I hope I've been able to explain what I mean clearly enough.

I think, if Expressen (although not the most reliable source in the past) states, that the Queen herself is quoted, then it MUST be true. Expressen cannot afford "faking" an interview/quote with the Queen.

Nevertheless this "cryptic" answer leaves a bad feeling in me.... she could have said it differently and more clearly, if ther is really NO ISSUE around the couple and if EVERYTING is perfectly allright.

Catharina, I completely agree to your comments about being the "small" sister and thus not having such a large wedding as the crown princess. Also another statement, that everybody prefers a spring/summer wedding instead of a autumn/winter wedding. But I fear, that there is really more behind this "no wedding 2010" message.

In case there are really dramatic difference between the couple, of course it is better to find out BEFORE the wedding, than afterwards.....
Just curious: In the past: in which royal house did it happen in the last century, that an engagement has split?

I think that the first comment and interview of Queen Silvia was at Aftonbladet

To me it is interesting, that the Queen used the word "tyvärr" - unfortunately there won´t be a wedding this year. It makes me think that there is a change of plans. She could have just said that the wedding would be next year.

Jenny Alexandersson, who blogs at Aftonbladet, says that is isn´t a secret anymore that Madeleine and Jonas have a crisis at their relationship.

Surprisingly, Royalcourt did release an official statement now.
Worded in a rather unfortunate way, and mis-placed under 'Current activities' instead of the 'Press release' section, it's quite obviously a rush job and anything but helpful to quiet any rumors, I'd say.
Time of Princess Madeleine's wedding is not set
Following a number of articles on the date for the wedding between Princess Madeleine and Mr Jonas Bergström, we want to announce that, as previously announced, the wedding date has not yet been determined.

As Madeleine and Jonas are currently no longer a couple, this thread will be closed. Discussion and new information regarding their break-up should be posted in the thread.

Does anyone know if Madeline is still planning on living at the villa now that she is no longer engaged?
