Sweden's Princess Madeleine Moves Home
Via The Local: The Royal Court has announced that Princess Madeleine and her husband Chris O'Neill have moved to Stockholm for the time being while they decide where in Europe to be based. The Local reported last week that the couple were planning to leave their home in New York to move to Europe and the Royal Court has now confirmed that Stockholm will be their base for the near future. "They have terminated the contract and have emptied their apartment. They will now be based in Stockholm", said Margareta Thorgren at the Royal Court to the Aftonbladet daily. Princess Madeleine revealed the plans to return from the U.S. in the Sveriges Television program "A year with the royal family 2014", saying that she wanted to be closer to her family. The couple currently live in Manhattan with their baby daughter Leonore. The royal family recently made an announcement that the couple were expecting their second child, who will be sixth in line to the Swedish throne. The baby is expected in the summer. Princess Madeleine recently appeared at the Nobel festivities in Stockholm in December, after taking time out from her royal duties to focus on looking after her daughter.
