Very cute. Painting can be messy but its very enjoyable experience for the children and helps to develop their creativity.

Lovely to see the family again! I presume Leonore hasn't started school yet, as I can imagine that even though they're private citizens in the US we would get some pieces of information on where she is attending.

They moved last fall. It was announced the summer of 2018, they were moving in the fall. They settled in Florida in September. I don't believe there is any plans (public known) for them to leave Florida.

The family moved to the United States in the beginning of August 2018, and Svensk Damtidning wrote in the beginning of September that they had rented a villa in Miami.
They are staying in Sweden in the summer, at least Madeleine and the children should spend their summer in Sweden according to Margareta Thorgren. Thorgren said to Svensk Damtidning on 22nd May that Madeleine and her family come to Sweden next week (= this week) and stay over for the summer.

When do kids start first grade ( year one) in Sweden ? In the US and Canada, that would be normally in the year they turn six. Leonore will be six years old next February , so , if that is already school age In Sweden, the family will have to make a decision soon about moving back to Sweden permanently or the provisions in the Act of Succession will kick in and Leonore will lose her place in the line of succession.

All children living in Sweden are obligated by law to start school in the autumn of the year they turn six years old.
What they start is the so call pre-school class that was made compulsory from autumn term 2018. Year one starts the year after when the child turns seven.

Leonore will turn six in February 2020 and is obliged to start school in September 2020 (no matter if she lives then in Sweden or in the US)
There is still 15 months till September 2020: Madeleine and Chris still have many time to decide what direction their life turns (moving permanently to Sweden and retaining the right to Succession or settling their life in the US and officially renouncing the right for Madeleine and her children).

I have given up on Chris and Maddie. Apart from the fact that they still seem as in love as ever, nothing about their lifestyle makes sense.

Sweden was too far off the beaten track for Chris to be able to do his high flying international finance job so they moved to London. OK, that makes sense, but next thing they are moving to Miami (hardly the hub of international high finance) so who knows what they are doing?

I'd say Chris business was just an excuse to justify them moving. To me, it's him being uncomfortable with his family being in the public eye that is the main issue here. Although Madeleine has never been comfortable either she can cope with it and has always seemed genuine in her wish to support her parents and sister. At the time of her engagement to Jonas Berglund it seemed clear, again to me, that she would be following in the footsteps of Princess Christina and combine supporting the monarch with philanthropic work.

Other than her involvement with the World Chiildhood Foundation, what kind of philanthropic work is she doing now ?

Perhaps the family already have a planned moved to Sweden in mind and have just not released any official information about it yet, or are planning to send Leonore to the Swedish school in Miami (which I presume would start at 6) as some suggested a few weeks ago here.

Stoppa pressarna about Chris's watch
Chris O'Neill's awedome luxury clock revealed
Chris O'Neill's gigantic luxury watch is not something to play with. The American wears a watch worth over SEK one million.
Stoppa pressarna has spoken to a senior clock expert who is internationally active. He gets very excited when he gets to see the watch at Chris during the National Day last year.
- This is a Rolex that no ordinary Swedish can afford, it is a Rolex Daytona vintage with acrylic glass, of the model 6240, possibly 6263, says the clock expert when he gets to see the picture where Chris proudly shows off his watch to the spectators.
The clock expert is easily excited when describing the American financier's watch.
- These models are from the 70s and 80s and can mean a value well over SEK one million, says the clock expert.
It turns out that the Rolex watch Chris wears is a real rarity.
- The watch has a manual clockwork that you pull up and a real treat for collectors. A legendary collector's clock! A clock nerd's dream, the watch expert clearly says impressed.
Chris O’Neill has clearly shown his watch in many different contexts, including in connection with a dinner at Gävle Castle 2015.
It is not a daring guess that Chris will wear the Rolex watch on our national day.

Margareta Thorgren told to Svensk Damtidning that Chris, Leonore and Nicolas are coming to Sweden in the beginning of next week, and that Madeleine and Chris attend at the state visit from South Korea next week.

I assume the children also came with him then.


I am surprised by the news that Chris will be at the South Korean state dinner (if he in fact attends). Since he is not a member of the Royal House, I would expect Madeleine to attend alone.

The family has been photographed on a picnic.
ROYAL: EXKLUSIV - Happy Birthday! Picknick im Park für Geburtstagskind Nicolas

Stoppa pressarna has a video of Madeleine and Chris at restaurant Ciccio's.

The article tells that luxury Italian Ciccio's on Nybrogatan on Östermalm is a new favourite of Madeleine and Chris. It is close to the Royal Mews where they live, so they have a short way home.
The article tells about an evening Madeleine and Chris spent with their friend gang consisting of Louise "Lussan" Thott and her husband Gustav Thott and Dag and Nathalie Werner. The video is from that evening.
They sat at a large round table in the middle of the restaurant and eyewitnesses with whom Stoppa pressarna has talked told that Madeleine and Chris ordered lobster pasta that costs nearly SEK 600 for two people. When the clock approached midnight, the gang suddenly burst into spontaneous birthday song with the classic Lionel Richie hit "Happy birthday" that pounced from the speakers. Chris clapped his hands enthusiastically when he saw how the drinks were served on the table, but it was Madeleine who took the command:
- Cheers, she shouted happily.
