I think it is confusing and negative for the kids to have "two homes" in Sweden and in London and move back and forth throughout the year, even attending different preschools in the two countries...

Does Queen Silvia go grocery shopping in Sweden ? Maybe she does, but, in the UK at least, one wouldn't expect an HRH to be seen in such ordinary circumstances.

My point is that, while in...

That is Madeleine's double life. She wants to be a glamorous royal princess when she is in Sweden and then makes an appearance as an American suburban housewife in the parking lot of a grocery store...

Although I also support limiting the number of HRHs by law, it must be said that, historically, under the Bernadotte dynasty, all male-line descendants of King Carl XIV Johan who were not excluded...

Either way, it doesn't look good when the press is basically painting Chris as a bankrupt businessman who owes millions in taxes and is about to lose his Florida house. All that press negativity and...

What is the justification for a son-in-law of the king who is not an HRH to use an official car when he is traveling alone on a private business trip ? Is it because of security concerns ? I am...

I totally understand why the Royal Court staff should be upset. If Chris doesn't want to be a prince or a royal duke, it is unacceptable that he uses royal transportation in a private business trip.

Smoking has been declining in the US, but it is still very common in Europe. Even worse, many European countries do not have (or do not enforce ?) smoking bans in public spaces. It is really awful:...

Chris is not obese, probably just slightly overweight using the BMI measure. In fact, he matches the body type of most middle-aged men in the United States or the United Kingdom, both of which are...

In the past, males who were removed from the line of succession for non-dynastic marriages were also stripped of their titles of prince of Sweden and duke, e.g. Sigvard and Carl Johan Bernadotte...

That was a surprising statement on her part as it is a decision which is not hers alone to make. I am pretty sure that, from Chris' point of view, moving back to Sweden is a big if. In fact, I doubt...

As it can be seen from previous posts on this forum, Madeleine has made it abundantly clear that she would rather stay in Sweden. She's also said she is "working" on persuading Chris to move to...

Does the Swedish royal family have a relationship with Donald Trump to begin with ? In fact, I would be surprised if Donald Trump even knew that Sweden is a monarchy or who the Swedish king is.

As I understand it, they offered to make Chris a member of the Royal House, which comes (even if indirectly) with an income, but Chris himself turned the offer down, among other things because he...

Maybe the Swedish forum members can clarify that, but hasn't King Carl XVI Gustaf himself spoken in support of refugees and asylum seekers in the past ? If I'm not mistaken, I believe he did it both...

Once again, we come back to the issue of Chris' position within the Swedish royal family. Chris is not a prince of Sweden; in fact, he is not even a Swedish citizen AFAIK. Nevertheless, because he is...

Well, Chris is a private American citizen and not a member of the Swedish royal house. I suppose he is entitled then to voice his opinions without creating a diplomatic row. Madeleine may feel the...

Prince Charles used to attend royal weddings. In fact, he attended Philippe's, Willem-Alexander's, and Felipe's weddings. I don't know why he didn't go to Frederik's or Victoria's weddings, but that...

Actually, as she has said more than once, Madeleine has never met either William, nor Harry. That in itself tells a lot about the myth that the British and Swedish RFs were planning an arranged...

I can already imagine the gossip sites saying how Kate will be jealous with Madeleine around. They have already suggested that before, however baseless that claim might be.

I agree. A 33-year-old princess and mother of two children shouldn't be seen dressed like that.
