Again, my first impression is that she is pregnant, and again, she is not wearing something form-fitting, especially in the belly region.  I think she is pregnant and they are waiting for Week 18 to announce it.  That's a pretty common thing to do.

Madeleine is so pretty

She is really beautiful. I can't wait to see her wedding dress. Madeliene is gorgeous.
The NYC-US press is going to eat this up, it's so gossip-girl scripted like almost. I can't wait for her wedding.

I was looking at the SE og Her ( but the Norwegian magazine version) and it has a photo of Pss.Victoria,Daniel, Pss. Madeliene,Chris, Pr.Carl Phillip and Sofia all together on some snow or ski outing.  The magazines here are saying  Pr.Carl has been planning to ask for Sofia's hand in marriage for about a year, so he's very happy now that Madeliene is engaged,he will soon ask Sofia.  :wed:
They are saying we should look for a possible New Year engagement and that the Princesses get along with Sofia now. Victoria saw that her brother was serious and Sofia has always bent over backwards to get along with his sister's but Madeliene was not always welcoming to her :catfight:  but since the summer things were smoothed out greatly because Victoria could see that Sofia was going to be Pr.Carl's choice, so she worked at smoothing things with Madeliene. :angel:   Victoria wants a peaceful environment and is a gracious royal, she always asks is there a way to make peace and Madeliene finally saw that her brother needed that, so she is getting along with his girlfriend now.  :chill:


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: Snokitty on November 10, 2012, 02:57:18 pm
Do you think that Madeleine will ever move back to Sweden and do any royal duties or just live in NY as a married Lady?


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: serene grace on November 10, 2012, 03:08:39 pm
She certainly looks happy as a clam in those photos in NYC.  :flirt:
She's living the life, without the constant mean press, I think the NYC press will adore her and be kind to her, since she chose the US to stay in for the last couple of years.

I do feel once she has children she will probably want them born in Sweden and possibly want them to learn Swedish fluently  and experience full Swedish culture as young children, it's only for that reason, that IMO, I think she will eventually move back to Sweden, even if for a few years while the children are very young.

Everybody looks just lovely in all of these pictures; such a nice family, it seems and that baby has sure grown into a sweetheart!

But, who's the unshaven dude who looks hungover in every pic with the pretty brunette lady?  I get a bad vibe from him.  Sorry in advance if I've offended.

there really is stuff you can't fake and the affection in that family is one of those things - so obvious - and Estelle - well she is just such a lovely child.  I just do not understand why the PW cannot see that releasing simething like this
would not interfere with George's "normalcy" but instead is such a great view of the Swedish RF.  This little girl is being prepared for her future role so well thus far.  Thanks for posting it.

Daughter of Sweden's Princess Madeleine and New York banker baptized in royal ceremony

HELSINKI (AP) — The daughter of Sweden's Princess Madeleine and New York banker Christopher O'Neill has been baptized outside Stockholm.

Princess Leonore Lilian Maria will be known as the Duchess of Gotland — in reference to Sweden's largest island. She is King Carl XVI Gustaf's second grandchild and was born in New York City on Feb. 20.

Some 150 guests — mostly family and friends — attended the ceremony in the church of Drottingholm Palace outside Stockholm on Sunday. It comes exactly a year after Princesse Leonore's parents wedded in Stockholm.

Leonore is fifth in line to the Swedish throne; her mother is fourth.

Sweden is a constitutional monarchy in which the royals primarily serve as figureheads. The king is the country's head of state, but his powers are limited to ceremonial duties.

Loved some of the comments

Melia, London, United Kingdom, 13 hours ago
These royal ladies on the continent are far classier than Kate. Doubt we will ever see their bare thighs or pants due to wind vs ridiculous outfits, or their bare chests or bums. Sad that a potential Queen of England has shown all to the world. Nasty.

IMO at least Kate does more public appearances than i can say for this princess yeah they may be more "proper" in the clothing department but what does Mad do for her own country? other than running off to america to lick her wounds before finding the man who will actually marry her.  This royal family other than Princess Vic who actually seems to give a flying **ck about her country is just as useless as Kate and her family is and they're not royals...not saying much about that family is it nice to see the Porn star invited to this gathering  :king:

^^There are rumours floating around another forum that Victoria may be pregnant. However, it might be wishful thinking! Her daughter Estelle does have a back-up in the line of succession now after the birth of Princess Madelene's baby daughter a few months ago. This must come as a relief to those who wouldn't wish any Snakey progeny to be too near to the Swedish throne!

But any child of Carl Philip and Sofia would be ahead of the children of Madeleine in the line of succession. So a few more children for Victoria is very much wanted indeed!

Victoria is 37 now so the chances may be shrinking. Look on the bright side! Nothing will happen to Estelle, and maybe Snakey won't want offspring even though she says she does!

Yeah Victoria should have more kids. I am surprised that she doesn't have another already.

Something tells me that getting Estelle wasn't easy and some treatments were involved. Victoria reminds me of a friend of mine who had trouble conceiving as well and finally after a few ivf-treatments she was pregnant and once her son was born, she just couldn't part with him. Much like Victoria not going to the Olympics in London so she could be with her baby.

And she is always very vocal how she loves children and wants more children. So the fact that there is no second child (or pregnancy) yet leads me to believe that they are having problems conceiving.

And of course I read on this board that the rumor in Sweden is that Daniel has health issues again (relating to his kidney transplant) so that might be a reason to wait.

Judging on her skin (some irregularities on her chin and cheeks) I wouldn't be surprised if the Swedish Court announces another pregnancy in a couple of weeks. Especially when pregnant with a girl, the skin of a woman suffers a bit in the early stages of a pregnancy.

Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: Maya on June 06, 2015, 03:49:29 pm
My understanding of the history of the Swedish Royal Family is hazy but I think it was the case that CP was next in-line to the throne and then the law changed and Crown Princess Victoria became the next in-line? If this is the case I think CP lost a sense of direction his whole life being geared towards a sense of duty and decided to put his rebellious head on and go for the gal that would make the average person on the street do a double take, that is to say a trophy wife. I think however the body language between these two is so positive there is genuine affection there and astrologers state this is a lifelong match so who knows?

Regardless I wish them all the best there is something genuine about Sofia, I think she has a work ethic which is admirable. Again I don't follow the SRF very much but it will be interesting to see how everything turns out for this young family.


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: Alexandrine on June 06, 2015, 04:38:59 pm
They started changing the law when Victoria was born because they doubted Silvia could have more children; when CP was born the law still hadn't been passed and then CG said that it would better to keep it as it was so CP before Victoria but the parliament said no way and changed the law. So he was like months old when his line of succession changed. The problem is CG and imo also Sylvia.

What about this?


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: Alexandrine on December 23, 2015, 03:40:11 pm
I don't like how Sofia dresses. She can have a good piece here and there but she is not consistent. The new hair looks better on her. But she had the same problem as Kate they don't know what to do with long hair. They don't have to do a ponytail always like Victoria but you can play with it.

At least CP looks somewhat happy in the last pics.

I love the velvet dress Victoria was wearing for the concert and love the jewels on the hair. Madde is ok but that type of lace in that colour is not the best look for her.

Sofia was not wearing CG order in the concert pics. I don't know if the reason is that she prefers not to (why?) or she doesn't remember. In any case they should renew staff because it's the second time she is not wearing her orders correctly. It's not that difficult.


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: Countess of Holland on December 24, 2015, 05:47:23 pm
^Women don't wear orders like house-orders etc when the men wear regular business suits like CP is doing here. The dress code was probably 'tenue de ville' and that means a business suit for men and a nice dress (knee-length) for women. But NEVER family-orders. If a royal order is given, you can wear a miniature on the lapel/ shoulder, but never the big breast star, the sash etc. And again NEVER family orders that are only worn when the dress code is white tie (and sometimes black tie, depending on the event).

Post by: Countess of Holland on December 24, 2015, 06:42:34 pm
But on the pictures of the banquet for the Swedish Academy, you can't tell if she wears the Family Order or not...it is under her coat. And based on what I see from the dress she wears, the fabric is organza and that means it is 'weak' meaning that the family order is probably higher up her left shoulder to give it more stability. So again...not visible because of her coat.

Same with Madeleine by the way. You can't see if she wears hers, but we assume that she is for obvious reasons. And for the same reasons, I will assume that Sofia also wears the family order.

Found a picture on the website of the Swedish RF; Madeleine is wearing hers, you can't see if Sofia wears hers. So the jury is still out.

I'm not assuming, I had already seen the photos that show Sofia without order. Still I don't think it's her fault unless she is refusing to wear it for some weird reason, however, CP and her staff are a mess and they should know these details. Swedish court has always been perfect in those details so this seems strange to me.


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: Countess of Holland on December 25, 2015, 09:06:29 am
Thanks, I didn't find that picture anywhere through Google.

Indeed, very odd that her staff didn't notice. But let's face it...all RF's have a problem with their staff. They seem to be unable to put together a professional staff.

In Sweden it is the PR-department, in the UK the staff can't even get the proper diplomatic order into their thick skulls (placing guests in church in alphabetic order...). I guess it is the result of hiring not so much the right person for the job, but the person who sort-of inherited the position.
The Dutch RF stopped that practise in the early 1980's and the pr-nightmares they had over the years were mostly the result of the royals themselves; Friso and his mafia-wife, Margarita with that horrid first husband of hers and of course the antics of Prince Bernhard sr.

Biggest scr*w up by a royal staff was of course the Duke of Edinburgh who showed up at the funeral of King Baudouin with the sash of the Order of the Leopard and not the Order of Leopold. The Order of the Leopard was (is?) the Order of Zaire, a former colony of Belgium, and the president of Zaire, Robert Mugabe, was one of the few Heads of State who was specifically NOT invited. Which made the mistake even more painful.

Post by: Countess of Holland on January 25, 2016, 05:36:07 pm
Indeed, many royals of the generation after Queen Elizabeth attended university, but I think most did special courses and not one particular program. Princess Beatrix was kind of an exception in her generation, she got her drs. (the Dutch form of a Masters degree) in Philosophy of Law with many electives in international law, Dutch law etc.

I think Queen Margrethe did several courses in archeology at Oxford University but she didn't get her BA or MSc in Archeology. King Juan Carlos was mostly trained in military affairs IIRC. And for the rest Franco took care of it. But no formal university training/ degree.

It is only the present generations of heirs (and monarchs) like Frederik, Felipe and Willem-Alexander who have MSc or BA's from universities.
But with some of the married-in royals the slide downwards has begun with Mette-Marit and Sofia (not to mention Marie of Denmark whose US years are quite murky and sound a bit trumped-up).

It is alleged that cath medd did a lot of cheating to gain her degree, and I have read that with attachments also.  That is no achievement in my book, if you cheat you fail, simple as that for me because you have earned nothing under your own merit.  Sofia appears to be learning well, and in such a short space of time.  Give her a couple of years under her belt and the difference will probably be amazing.  Princess Charlotte of Monaco has also done well in her short time with the Monaco rf.  Quite like the Swedish royals, they appear to be down to earth and modern.

^ and, Fly, in a closer look at the new princess, we see that her rear is expanding nicely, the body language between her and her groom is still cool, and she has flopped her hand inside his arm, rather than holding it as Victoria does Daniel.  No personal, loving touches here.   It's as if she doesn't want to touch him, now that she has achieved her goal.      :cookie:

^^ That is so sweet and they all look so cute! I'm glad they are close and hope they continue to be as they grow older. Thats one thing I like about the SRF, that they are more modern with how they share their lives with their pictures and they also seem close too.


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF

The nordic has that philosophy towards showing the children but other RF are quite similar to the british. They are not unique.


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: DuchessChandelier on December 18, 2016, 12:20:08 pm
I agree, it has something to do with the Nordic way of doing things. Waity and Willy also seem keen on keeping things traditional in other ways meaning they have a hard time accepting women working whereas for example with the Swedes, it is clear Vic is working hard. They just don't want to come out of the 1950s. Of course one could say the SRF is still living in the 1970s or 1980s since they're recycling outfits and having disco parties after royal events but still...

I'm happy they decide to include the kids in things. Nothing good comes out of keeping the kids locked in the conservatory and taking one photoshoot yearly when the parents have their day off from Madame Tussauds.


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: HRHOlya on December 18, 2016, 05:28:52 pm
I agree so far with all of you.
But imo what I find is that in the British eyes, esp the upper classes, it is still a bit of "kids are to be seen, not heard" (mind, we don't even see them *cough*), so kids are often missing from important events, eg christenings, weddings, xmas service etc etc, whereas in Sweden they are part of everyone's life and thus partake in all activities, they are not "adults only" (even when a kid is celebrated - christenings). Like in Italy too where it's the most normal thing to take your kids to restaurants, and in many places else (eg London) you are scoffed at as if you took some dog off the street and brought him in... That's my perception anyway, and is sth I have been thinking for a long time..


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: leogirl on December 19, 2016, 12:00:43 am
How are kids supposed to learn how to behave at a restaurant if they never go out? Weddings are for everyone... they even have parts for kids (ring bearer, flower girl/bridesmaid).

^^ She was born blonde, but her natural colour is actually like in the second pic. Dark blonde/ light brunette, call it what you want.
The blonde years I find were her worst looking, deep tan & fake blonde hair.. Since dropping Jonas she's positively blossomed (style wise). Though I always found her pretty!


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF

Post by: leogirl on June 21, 2017, 01:40:38 am
^^ I think most blond(e) people's hair gets darker as they age, slowly turns into a light to medium brown once they reach the 'tween' years.
^ If she wants to be blonde I would suggest a light blonde color and not the orange/tan look. Brown looks good on her if she has the right clothes/makeup.


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: HRHOlya on June 21, 2017, 01:10:16 pm

^^^

I like Princess Victoria as she is very capable carrying out her duties and has a husband who's happy to walk a step behind, yet she does not try to 'pull rank' just because she can. And they've introduced their children to the public at an early age, even if very gently, as the public are those hard workers who pay the royal family's ways, houses, etc etc.

She seems to have manners and has been well brought up. And for all of the BRF's posturing and murmurs about bicycle monarchies, they would do well to imitate those royal families who are not quite so famous, as they seems to be better behaved and actually work hard at their royal duties. They, the British RF, may well find out to their cost that they're no longer wanted.

Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: Little light on July 30, 2017, 09:47:21 pm
I totally agree.

It used to be the case that we, 'the unwashed masses', were not good enough for royalty. Now royalty is not good enough for us. They really are just like us and that mystique is long gone.

It seems to me the Swedish RF know this, but the public accept it, and their royal family do what they can when representing their country. But like I said, I don't know much about them but I am learning.


Title: Re: Pictures of Swedish RF
Post by: HRHOlya on July 30, 2017, 10:03:55 pm
"Now royalty is not good enough for us", wow brilliantly put!!
I think though that now with people knowing more about royals and what they are up to, and with all these countries that abolished the ridiculousness and are thriving, people see that neither are they better nor does anyone need them. In reality royalty and aristocracy were never better than working class, actually in behaviour the upper and working class are very very similar, it is more the middle class that holds on to morals and decency and tries to be "prim & proper". The upper and lower classes don't give a f and behave exactly like that: the upper needn't prove anything anymore and the lower can't ascend anyway, so why bother trying anything?

The Swedish republican movement is gaining more and more supporters in spite of Vic's and Dan's popularity and Swedes can count themselves lucky to have such good heirs. Though for some unfathomable reason Carl Gustav also has strong support  :ick:

Thing is, that Kid is LOVED and deep down, knows it. She isn't someone who was brought into life because she was needed or required. if all goes to pot, Victoria and Daniel will be okay and a happy family. At least they aren't half as expensive as the BRF demand to be allowed to be.

I don't know that all the Swedish royals are that 'unaffected' and 'nice'. King Carl Gustav has caused a scandal in the not too distant past with regard to nightclub activities and other women. It's been rumoured for years that Queen Sylvia underwent some pretty drastic cosmetic surgery to keep her husband interested as she grew older. She now has, according to many observers, a Joker look when she smiles.

Sylvia was a beautiful woman who enjoyed her good looks. It's been said that she put pressure on her daughter Victoria (who has a pleasant face but is not stunning) to keep slender. As a consequence young Victoria developed issues with food for which she eventually had to get treatment.

When Victoria fell in love with Daniel (her future husband) her parents weren't impressed and they kept the couple waiting for years before permission was given. Sylvia, it's been reported, is quite formal and demands respect, proper titles etc being given on engagements.

Carl Gustav has harboured resentment for years that his son Carl Philip (his second child) was demoted from Crown Prince as a baby by order of Parliament, and has often spoken about it quite openly. There have been tensions between Daniel and his father in law for years, which resulted just lately in observers seeing Daniel turning his back abruptly on the King.

Carl Philip's now wife, Sofie, had an interesting career as a photographic model to say the least when she was younger, that is still spoken about in Sweden. The couple aren't very respected, and it was probably only Carl Philip's status as his parents' Golden Boy that allowed the marriage to take place. Princess Madeleine's husband Chris O' Neill is constantly criticised by the Swedish press and the couple married very abruptly and produced a baby very very soon, something that if it had happened to, say Kate, would have caused the British tabloids to go into overdrive.

The Swedish Royal Family may look very carefree in some photos and Victoria and Daniel are reportedly very pleasant people to meet. However that doesn't mean that every Swedish Royal is fantastic in comparison to the BRF. It's not so. They have plenty of skeletons in their closet, as does every other Royal family in the world.

We only don't hear about it because very little gets printed about foreign royals in the English language press, and because those royals aren't under constant scrutiny by a voracious media like British royals are.

^ Very good summary.

The Swedes put on a good show though for the most part at least, in public; esp to the casual observer. And the younger generation (ie Vic & Madeleine) are, as it looks, raising their kids well/ much better than previous generations; though we'll know that only in the decades to come for sure.

^^   Yes, Carl Gustaf is an awful man.   Obvious favoritism toward his son and distant relationships with his daughters.  The best thing that could happen, in my opinion, is for CG to step down and let Victoria take over.

BECAUSE, despite Victoria's eating disorder and Madeleine's party girl ways, both young women found good men to marry who [appear to] love and support them.  They are [appear to be] happy, loving mothers to their children and represent the Crown well -- Victoria, of course, more so than Madeleine who is moving to a private life. 

Sofia, of course, is horrible.  Horrible.  But Victoria can handle her, I think.

The Swedish Royal Family has seemingly pulled it all together and the women [with the exception of Sofia] can rock the jewels/tiaras like no other royal woman since Diana.  But they have had their problems.

King of Sweden | Interview | A place in Europe | 1975

His Majesty Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden and Princess Christina, Mrs. Magnuson Speaks to noted photographer Earl of Lichfield for the Thames Television programme 'A place in Europe'.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Virm8VjvXp0

An old video, but worth a watch. Interesting to hear (& see) them speak English and touch on the subject of the then rule of male primogeniture in Sweden, the history of the palace(s) & art and Sweden being a socialist country with a monarchy (in which case it isn't too different from Lichfield's UK!).

Every day he's shuffling! Sweden's King Carl Gustaf, 72, shows off his VERY impressive dance moves while waiting to greet guests for an official government dinner

    King Carl XVI Gustaf shuffled across the floor while waiting for guests to arrive
    Royal family hosted an official government dinner at Royal Palace in Stockholm
    The 72-year-old King looked at wife Queen Silvia while dancing but did not smile
    Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Carl Philip were also at the gala last night
