Both the Aftonbladet and Expressen tabloids report that the couple exchanged engagement rings in New York about a month ago, but kept the engagement secret.

Royal Court spokesperson Bertil Ternert refused to comment on the reports, however, instead telling the TT news agency that an official announcement would be made later in the day on Thursday.

Expert on the royals, Sten Hedman, was not especially surprised by the news of the princess's engagement:

"It was pretty much expected. They have been living together after all. It would have been more of a surprise if they hadn't got engaged, " he said to news agency TT.

Chris O’Neill, who according to Swedish tabloids is a millionaire financial adviser who attended Columbia University, met Princess Madeleine mere months after she broke off her previous engagement to Jonas Bergström in 2010.

Congratulations Maddie!

I hope it works out well for her.  And that she wears a sparkly heirloom tiara.  And that all the usual Euro royals turn up, including the British foreign wedding officers, Edward and Sophie Wessex, in another of HM's tiaras.  Sophie, that is.   tehe

The American press will probably love it, a American marrying Sweden's lovely Princess Madeliene.

@rqskye thanks    I'm just a little sad this might mean there will be no huge royal wedding for her



RQ Skye ‏@rqskye
@RoyalCouturier Agreed. It's a shame. She'll probably do something smaller/simpler in NYC. Not thrilled w/her choice of husband, but whtevr.

I'm not crazy about this, he seemed to be her rebound fling. It's like she needs to be in a relationship.

I agree,  He may be as nice as can be, but Madeliene seems bad at picking men. I wish them the best though and I hope it works out. He's American and a NY'r  and Madeliene is a Princess of Sweden, the U.S. Media will be all over the wedding, no matter where they marry.

Anyway, Congratulations....... flower

CV:

Christopher O’Neill was born on 27th June 1974 in London, England where he grew up with his parents, Eva Maria and Paul O’Neill. He is a dual citizen of both the United States of America and the United Kingdom and has five half-sisters: Tatjana, Natascha, Stephanie, Annalisa and Karen.

Christopher attended boarding school at the Institut auf dem Rosenberg in St. Gallen, Switzerland before obtaining a Bachelor degree in International Relations from Boston University. In addition, Christopher has a Masters in Business Administration from Columbia Business School in New York.

Having spent the past 16 years within the field of finance, working for financial firms such as NM Rothschild & Sons and Steinberg Asset management, Christopher is now a Partner and Head of Research at Noster Capital - an investment firm with offices in London and New York City.

Since his youth, Christopher has enjoyed a wide variety of sports and outdoor activities, such as downhill skiing, tennis and golf. Among his other passions are music, literature and Chelsea Football Club.

Paul O’Neill originally moved to London from his native New York in the 1960s to establish the European headquarters of Oppenheimer & Co – a New York-based investment bank. Paul O’Neill passed away in December 2004. His mother, Eva Maria O’Neill, is involved in numerous charitable organizations, with a particular focus on the cultural preservation of Salzburg, Austria.


Apparently his mother had an affair with PC in the late 80s. blink  She's also best friends with Ivana Trump.  His mum and Natascha, one of his half-sisters: http://www.newyorksocialdiary.com/socialdiary/2006/10_06_06/images/1520--Eva-ONeill-with-daugh.jpg

It must be strange for Maddie to this engagement stuff (interview, pics etc) a second time.
