Princess Leonore turns 7 with beachside photos

Sweden’s Princess Leonore is celebrating her seventh birthday with her family on the beach in Miami today. Her mother, Princess Madeleine, shared two new images of the Princess on her official Facebook page.

Madeleine said on Facebook: “Happy 7th birthday to our Wild and Adventurous Leonore! We hope you stay just the way you are: fun, sweet, curious, caring and completely unique – just like the unicorns that you love!”

When she was born, Leonore was fifth in line to the Swedish throne as the second grandchild of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia. She is now eighth in line.

Leonore is the eldest child of Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill. She was born on 20 February 2014 in New York City. She holds dual American-Swedish nationality. She has two younger siblings: Prince Nicolas (b. 2015) and Princess Adrienne (b. 2018).

Princess Leonore, Duchess of Gotland, was born with the style of Royal Highness, but in October 2019, her grandfather, the King, revoked the style of Royal Highness and membership in the Royal House from the children of Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill, as well as Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia. They retain their titles as princes and princesses and members of the Royal Family.

Princess Madeleine and her family reside in Miami, Florida. They relocated to the United States from London in 2018.
