Happy Easter Sunday to those who celebrate, and Happy April 5 to those who do not! If any pictures of the royals attending church for Easter come out, I’ll update the post (UPDATE: some early Easter service photos at the bottom of the post). For now, this week’s Royal Round Up has got a Kate Middleton sighing; all the Swedes, including Crown Princess Victoria, Sofia Hellqvist, Princess Madeleine, Princess Estelle, Princess Leonore, and all the guys; Princess Charlene; Queen Maxima; and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Princess Madeleine moves to Europe

It’s been rumored for a while that Princess Madeleine and husband Chris O’Neill would move from their home in New York, and she’s even talked about moving, and now the Swedish Court has released a statement saying Maddie and Chris, along with their daughter Princess Leonore, are leaving New York for Europe. According to the press release, they have not decided where in Europe they will live, and are currently staying at their apartment in Stockholm.

Swedish Royals step out for Swedish Academy formal gathering

At the risk of becoming the Swedish Royal Family Review, I’m covering the Swedes again.  King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill, and Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist all stepped out for the Swedish Academy Formal Gathering yesterday, December 20, at the Stock Exchange, Stockholm to mark the end of the Academy’s working year.

Swedish Royals: Carl Philip’s wedding date + Princess Madeleine’s use of social media to release baby photos

I want to take a second to talk about the Swedish Royals, in particular Princess Madeleine and Prince Carl Philip. Carl Philip’s wedding date was announced, and Madeleine and Sofia Hellqvist might make an appearance at this year’s Nobel banquet. Also, I want to take a moment and commend Madeleine on her use of social media to provide photo updates on her daughter, Princess Leonore (versus Prince William and Kate Middleton who threaten the press and photographers whenever there are pictures of Prince George).

Prince Carl Philip is engaged to Sofia Hellqvist

The news of Prince Carl Philip of Sweden’s engagement to Sofia Hellqvist came out last Friday, late in the day.  I would have covered it, but the death of my dog and my subsequent depression took precedence.  Anyway, I’m covering it now ahead of an appearance by Kate Middleton later today.  So, Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist are engaged, and planning a wedding for summer 2015.  Yay?  I guess congrats to them, but my sympathies to the Swedes who will now have a former nude model/reality TV star as a representative of their country.  I mean, I know we have some crappy representatives here in the US, but at least we (for the most part) get to vote them out when they do stupid stuff.  Of the engagement, Carl Philip said, “I have the incredible honor of being engaged to this fantastic girl.”  And Sofia said, “Carl Philip is the most humble person I have ever met, which is what made me fall for him in the beginning.  He has one of the most beautiful hearts, he is very warm.”

SRF: Leonore is christened as Madeleine and Chris celebrate their first wedding anniversary (updated with official photos)

Princess Leonore

Princess Leonore, daughter of Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Chris O’Neill, was baptized this morning at the Drottningholm Palace chapel in Stockholm.  Leonore was pretty well behaved.  She was a bit fussy when they arrived, but calmed down and didn’t even cry when she was baptized (unlike her mother, Madeleine, who wailed).  Part of the baptism includes Leonore receiving the Order of the Seraphim—that’s the little blue sash and pin she received.  Leonore was born on February 20, 2014 at 10:41 EST in New York City.  Her baptism comes on her parent’s first wedding anniversary (more on that below).
