Princess Madeleine and family to move back to Sweden

Princess Madeleine and her family are set to move to Sweden from Miami, Florida, this autumn.

The Royal Court announced that the Princess, her husband Chris O’Neill and their three children, Princess Leonore (9), Prince Nicolas (7) and Princess Adrienne (4), would return to live in Sweden beginning in August.

“Princess Madeleine and Mr Christopher O’Neill have decided that their family shall relocate to Sweden indefinitely,” the Royal Court said.

The family will reside in their apartment at the Royal Mews in Stockholm.

Until now, the family had typically visited Sweden twice a year – in the summer and around Christmas. The family previously lived in New York City and London before moving to Florida in August 2018.

Princess Leonore and Prince Nicolas will attend elementary school in the autumn, while Princess Adrienne will enroll in preschool. The names of the schools have not been disclosed.

Sveskdam asked the Royal Court why the family was returning to Sweden. The Head of Information, Margareta Thorgen, said: “It is a decision that Princess Madeleine and Mr Chris O’Neill made together. They are looking forward to this move and that the children will be residing in Sweden with all that that entails.”

The move will not change Chris O’Neill’s job; he will continue to work in the United States and Europe.

The relocation is just in time for the family to participate in the Golden Jubilee events for Madeleine’s father, King Carl XVI Gustaf, in September.
