There are, IMO, two different things that are discussed here.

I think that we need to keep in mind what the situation looked like when Madeleine got married and Leonore was born. Yes, Victoria was married and Estelle was born, but she was the only grandchild in...

I know what she said, and I don't think it's possible for her to say anything else at the moment. Would she have said "no, we're not moving to Sweden"? That would have caused a lot of attention, and...

My guess is als that if they are removed from the succession, they will still be prince/princess, but not HRH's. I belong to those who think that Chris and Madeleine would be just as happy (if not...

I'm not so sure they will move back to Sweden. My reasons:

When Leonore was born, she was the spare (okay, I don't like that expression either, but there were no other children besides Estelle)....

It would be much better if she said that she was on full-time parental leave and stayed with the kids in London. Then - if everything worked out well at home - she could turn up as a surprise visitor...

I agree with all the posters above. The problem isn't her absence (that is understandable, she has two young children). The problem is that she makes promises, and then bails out in the last minute....
