Princess Madeleine and her family will return to Sweden for Christmas this year.
The Princess, her husband Chris O’Neill and their three children, will be in Sweden for the second time this year for the festive season after visiting the country over the summer for the first time since the global health crisis began.
Madeleine and her three children, Princess Leonore, Prince Nicolas and Princess Adrienne, will receive the traditional Christmas trees in the Inner Courtyard of the Royal Palace on 20 December. A member of the Royal Family annually receives the tree from the Swedish Forest Academy at the Royal Palace.
This also means the family will be able to celebrate Queen Silvia’s 78th birthday in person this year. She will celebrate her birthday on 23 December.
The Royal Court confirmed the family’s travel plans to Svenskdam, although they did not give a specific date for her return.
The Information Manager at the Royal Court, Margareta Thorgren, told the magazine, “The Royal Family celebrates Christmas at home privately. Princess Madeleine and her family plan to return home. On 20 December, the Princess and the children will receive the traditional spruces in the Inner Courtyard.”
Princess Madeleine and her family reside near Miami, Florida and were unable to travel to Sweden last Christmas due to the health situation. The last Christmas they spent in the Scandinavian country was 2019.
