The mystery surrounding Madeleine is puzzling: "Nobody understands what's happening"
Madeleine's conditions changed fundamentally a year ago. Then it became clear that the royal house was shrinking, following a decision by King Carl Gustaf. But what did this mean more concretely for Madeleine?
Well, it is clear that Madeleine has very few royal assignments. The big exception is the work with the World Childhood Foundation, which was founded by her mother, Queen Silvia.
- What she does is digital, she is a member of the American board and they have a board meeting in November, Åsa Andreasson, communications manager at World Childhood Foundation, told to Svensk Damtidning.
Madeleine is also part of the organization around the Childhood Prize.
- There she is a member of the jury and all our jury meetings this year take place digitally. The first start-up meeting has already taken place and she has participated, says Åsa.
But what else does Madeleine do? It is this question that eludes the most ardent royal experts. Ellen Myrgård Lindén, reporter at Svensk Damtidning, is one of them.
- When the king made the decision to shrink the family with titles, there was no doubt that the royal couple and Victoria and Daniel would be the magic four, in the representation work. But then came the corona virus and our head of state made a quick decision to leave the capital for an isolated existence at Stenhammar Castle. Carl Philip and Sofia had to step forward more - otherwise the Crown Princess couple's work would have been far too heavy. But where was Madeleine?, many people asked themselves, says Ellen.
- Of course, many believed that she would go in and relieve her siblings, and in the long run help her parents, but there were no performances from Florida - neither physical nor digital. Madeleine had taken a clear step away from the spotlight (despite the corona virus) and no one understood what was happening.
