Wow, more Swedish royal news. Super happy news. Princess Madeleine is pregnant with her second child! The Palace confirmed the pregnancy this morning.
The statement read:
- Princess Madeleine and Mr. Christopher O’Neill are delighted to announce that The Princess is expecting their second child.
- The birth is expected to take place in the summer of 2015.
- “We are very happy and look forward to welcoming a new member to our family,” says Princess Madeleine and Mr. Christopher O’Neill.
Princess Madeleine was scheduled to attend an event for the Swedish Equestrian Federation’s Jubilee Foundation on December 13, but cancelled last minute. I wondered what was up. Maybe the cancellation was connected to her pregnancy?
Anyway, super awesome news for Maddie and Chris. Leonore is getting a sibling! I don’t know exactly how far along Maddie is, but let’s say she’s 12 weeks now, that would put the due date around the beginning of July. So she’ll be heavily pregnant for Prince Carl Philip’s wedding to Sofia Hellqvist on June 13. Leonore will be about 16-ish months when the new baby arrives – she was born on February 20, 2014.
Congratulations to Maddie and Chris – so happy for them!!
