I wonder whether the court will comment on that this time: First it came the snarky article about Chris "losses" and how sad Madeleine was for it, and now they were pictured vacationing... the rags have zero coherence...

So this was posted on the New My Royals Blog:
"Swedish newspaper "Stoppapressarna" writes that Chris O'Neill went bankrupt. According to the swedish newspaper, all financial actions done by Chris O'neill in the last year failed and now he has too much debt. If that news given by the newspaper is true, this is a troublesome and serious situation for Princess Madeleine of Sweden. In the news, it is stated that Madeleine is very anxious but "she hopes that Chris will reestablish his financial position". Although the Swedish newspaper claims that this information has been taken from the Swedish Royal Court, it is necessary to state that this newspaper is known for its made-up news. It is highly probable that this news is also a made-up one."

Do you think there is any truth to this?

There have been rumors since before the wedding that he was in financial trouble. And there has been no proof of it. Honestly if he was as broke as critics would have us believe, why turn down a title? Why not move to Sweden, take up royal residence and live off his father in law? Honestly unless there is some credible proof from a real news source, I don't believe a word of it.

Stoppa pressarna is not a newspaper, it is a website, which quotes the articles from Expressen, Expressen Extra, Aftonbladet, Aftonbladet Klick!, Svensk Damtidning and gossip magazines Hänt Extra, Hänt i Veckan, Veckans Nu and Hänt Bild. Stoppa pressarna tries to stop people from buying the paper magazines to their home = Stoppa pressarna is swedish and means "Stop the press". By reading the stories from Stoppa pressarna people can read the stories free without paying anything.

Stoppa pressarna's article about Chris's financial trouble is a quote from the article at gossip magazine Hänt Extra. The cover:
Image Upper.com - Free Image Hosting - View Image

Stoppa pressarna tells that Hänt Extra bases their article of Chris's financial trouble in that his housing investments aren't doing well. Two years ago he bought an exclusive two-room apartment in Manhattan for SEK 16 million. He had calculated rent it out with SEK 78 000 a month, but when no one took the bait he was forced to reduce the rent by 22 percent. He recently tried to sell the extravagant holiday home in Florida for SEK 41.3 million. But even this sale leans to be a loss because the price of the house is now SEK 39.7 million.
- He needs to get money! Otherwise he would never sell and rent them out. One wonders how the state of the economy is and how bad it really is. The investments have not fallen out of the way Chris anticipated. It is important for him to give his family safety, says a source who is close to the court, writes Hänt Extra.
The reason Chris suddenly sells the house remains unclear. There are few who are selling their homes in Florida now if it is not necessary because housing prices rising steadily, writes Stoppa pressarna, quoting Hänt Extra.

The fact is none of us know for sure if this story is true because there is no proof. Just to play devil's advocate - this may be the reason he turned down a title and moved from NYC to London. It may be easier, sans title and the scrutiny that comes with it, for him to stay under the radar. He would bring more attention to his financial situation if he did as you suggested. P Madeleine and her children are financially set for life. This may answer the question of why he and Madeleine accepted titles for their kids. Truthfully Chris' nasty attitude toward the press may easily be explained if his financial woes are in fact true. I am not saying any of it is true, but it would answer a few questions and explain his actions and behaviors. J/S.

Madeleine publishes family photos from the holiday at her Facebook:
"Family time, sadly interrupted. What a pity we weren't just asked for photos, because here are some sweet ones."
https://www.facebook.com/PrincessMad...99343763536397

I wonder if she would have published these photos, if there wouldn't have been the paparazzi photos at the magazines.

Madeleine was set for life whether or not her kids had titles. The kids don't get money from her dad, she does. Moving to Sweden and accepting a title would draw attention away from his money. He wouldn't need to explain housing or work. He would be a royal and be paid for it by his FIL, solve a lot of issues. Why did he move to London? Because he is from there. His mother is there. His sisters are in Europe and often London. London is a major financial hub and he can do the same work from there as NY (where they lived for quite some time after he turned down the title). And likely had a lot to do with Maddie. Maddie feeling pressure to be back in Sweden for events from time to time. With two small children, traveling from NY to Sweden for an event was a huge event. She either had to take the kids with her or fly back for 48 hours. In London she can travel home for a day here or there for events and not uproot her children.

As for the titles of her kids, Leonor was the spare for the generation when she was born. She still is until Vic gives birth. It made sense to give her a title. She may have been given a title either way, CG may have thought it was fair for all his grandkids to gain a title. It doesn't cost any money, the title doesn't come with money or property, simply a title. If Leo had a title, it would be unfair for Nicholas not to be given one.


As for his attitude, Chris is usually quite good for the press when it is an official event. And for things like when his kids are born. Yes , he isn't pleased at times when paps catch him out for a walk or such. He is certainly not alone, I don't think there is a royal alive or dead who hasn't. He is a private citizen, he gets no money, has no duties and has no obligation to pose for the paps.

And when Leonore and Nicolas are of age, they will probably draw a pay check just for being Royal Highnesses of Sweden. Financially none of the three of them need anything from Chris because they are members of the SRF. Seriously Chris had to be out of his mind if thought the press would not bother him. Really Chris? He should have been much more realistic - wow, how could he have been so ignorant? No matter how anyone sees it, he is NOT a private citizen. Media - wise he is fair game. If he is trouble financially, they will found out and have a field day - they love to kick someone who is already down on his/her luck. Shame on them, but they get paid nicely for a job well done. He can cry "private citizen" all he wants, but it is simply not the case. Sorry.

Financially, i'm sure they will be fine. He is the first that admitted he had to change job because of his status so maybe a new beginning will make everthing alright again.

I'm very proud of Princess Madeleine for her facebook statement and cute pictures!

Probably not but the sulking doesnt help. The paparazzis will be there no matter what is published on FB and they won't go away.

I am always amazed that public persons like Madeleine think they are in control regarding the media, as if she could dictate them what photos will be published and what photos will not.

And by the way, if they don't like their family time to be 'interruped', maybe they should not check into a celebrity/rich people's holiday spot and walk on a public beach.

There are lots of famous people, much more famous people than Madeleine, who do beach holiday or whatever holiday but are not photographed because they go to places that are not swarmed by paparazzis.

I've never been followed by the paps. But it so much healthier to focus in the positives (We had a vacation with each other in a beautiful place and here is the fun we had) than the negatives (the paps spoiled things).
And why did she not offer a photo session in exchange for being left alone the rest of the time. Isn't that the way some other royals handle it?
Good photos though. Glad she shared.

That is done with mainstream press. No one can simply control/deal with paps and tabloids.

beautiful pictures, but it's disappointing she published them with snarky remarks towards the papparazzi.

I agree. Let's not forget she did the same thing with their honeymoon pictures. Sulked and then posted pictures of her own. The pictures she posted are very cute though, and it seems from the paps pictures that they had a good time regardless. After the interview I thought that maybe she would be back on the road to making mends. Oh well, she's really not doing anything to help her image yet again.

Fair points. the Maldives is a very popular place, but then again they should go where they please and not have the paparazzi dictate their lives.
But also they need to understand that they might be photographed, no need to make little statements.

Lovely photos that she published, the kids look cute and happy
especially this one with the ice cream
