Princess Madeleine of Sweden and her family to move to Florida

Sweden’s Princess Madeleine and her family (husband of five years, Chris O’Neill and children, Princess Leonore, Prince Nicolas and Princess Adrienne) are moving back to the United States. They previously resided in New York City, which was where Leonore was born; the Princess, like her father, holds American citizenship.

The family will live in Florida where they have a home.

Madeleine will continue her work with the World Childhood Foundation, which her mother, Queen Silvia founded. She worked for the US branch of the charity while living in New York.

Chris O’Neill will work in both the US and Europe.

The family has been living in London for the past several years for Chris’ job in the financial sector. While they have chosen to sell their London home, they will continue to hold their home in Stockholm in the apartments of the Royal Mews. The family has spent the summer in Sweden.

The full press release from the Royal Court said, “Princess Madeleine and Mr Christopher O’Neill are planning to move to Florida in the United States this autumn.
The time and opportunity for the United States are good for the family while the children are still of pre-school age.

“Princess Madeleine has a great commitment to children’s rights and will continue working with the World Childhood Foundation and, through the move, be able to focus more on the activities in the United States.

“Mr Christopher O’Neill has previously been working in the United States but will continue his business in Europe.

“The family thus leaves their accommodation in London but will keep their home in Stockholm as before.”
