Princess Madeleine postpones her move home and Sweden’s Royal Court explains why

Princess Madeleine of Sweden has postponed her move home, and the Royal Court has explained the reason behind her decision.

It had been announced earlier this year that Princess Madeleine, her husband Chris and their three children, Princess Leonore, Prince Nicolas and Princess Adrienne, would relocate to Sweden in August. However, the Princess and her husband have since changed their minds.

The royals will now move to Sweden in 2024.

According to Margareta Thorgren, the Chief Information Manager at the Royal Court, “The plan is for the family to move to Sweden. It will be postponed until 2024, according to the information I have.”

She also told Swedish news agency Expressen that the postponement has nothing to do with a migration issue or house sale. “It is simply that the time for the family, with all that a move entails, has been a little too short,” she said.

The Princess and her family are currently in Sweden for the summer, and they will return to Miami ahead of the autumn semester of school for the young royals.

The Royal Court did not want to reveal any further information regarding the move to the media.

The Princess and her family will remain in Sweden at least through July, as she and Chris O’Neill are scheduled to attend Victoriadagen (the celebrations for her older sister Crown Princess Victoria’s birthday) on 14 July.

King Carl XVI Gustaf will mark 50 years on the throne in September. It is not yet known if Princess Madeleine and her family will be in town for the occasion. Most schools in the United States return to classes in August and September.
