King Carl Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Prince Carl Philip, Princess Sofia, Princess Madeleine, and Chris O'Neil welcome Governor General of Canada David Johnston and his wife, Sharon, to Sweden for the Canadian State Visit.
This summer the Swedish royal family fulfilled all of the fandom’s wishes when they posed for a photo shoot as a group. It was the first photo shoot to feature all of the members of the family. The photo shoot was adorable: Leonore ran away, Estelle was a perfect little royal, Alexander and Oscar were cute little cupcakes, and Nicolas won over everyone by pulling Sofia’s hair. Seeing the whole family together was very special and exactly what we needed!
As the Crown Princess Victoria is currently on a private trip, she and Prince Daniel will not be able to attend events held in connection with the Canadian State Visit next week, as they usually do. Instead, Princess Madeleine will step into her sister’s place and will participate in the visit, which the court has now confirmed to Swedish Women’s Weekly.
“Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill and the Prince Couple will attend the traditional ceremony at the castle, as well as the subsequent lunch. They will also participate in the banquet later in the evening.” says the court’s Communications Director Margareta Thorgren.
The court also confirmed that Madeleine and Chris will be in Sweden for some time, and not only during the state visit.
“Princess Madeleine and Chris did not come to Sweden alone because of the state visit, but because they have other commitments in Sweden other than the state visit.
Yesterday evening, Princess Madeleine, her husband Chris O'Neill and their common friends got together for a gorgeous dinner at the Swedish & French Restaurant Bardot, opposite Teatergrillen in Östermalm in Stockholm, Sweden.
