Princess Madeleine of Sweden and her family will be moving to London later this year, probably in the fall. Her husband, Chris O'Neill, is already domiciled in London (and in February, Princess Madeleine was looking at properties in Belgravia.)
The couple's second child is due in June, so I expect Madeleine and family to remain in Sweden through the summer (and the new baby's baptism.)
Belgravia is not too far from Hyde Park and Kensington Palace. Princess Madeleine is the same age as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. She was born on June 10, 1982, just sixteen days before the Princess of Wales gave birth to Prince William.
The two young couples probably move in similar circles, and may even have mutual friends.Chris' half sister, Tatjana, is married to Henry D'Abo, whose mother, Lady Ursula Manners, is the daughter of the 9th Duke of Rutland. The Prince of Wales knows (not intimately) Chris's mother, the Austrian-born Eva Maria Walter. (Let me repeat: they have met, but they DID NOT have an affair.)
Christopher O'Neill spent his childhood with his parents, Paul and Eva Maria O'Neill at 75 Eaton Square. (His mother now lives in another flat on Eaton Square.)
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first child, Prince George, was born in July 2013. Princess Madeleine's first child, Princess Leonore, was born in February 2014.
Princess Charlotte and Madeleine's second child will be less than two months apart. Perhaps this second child will be a prince ... mind wandering again.
Imagine the possibilities. Play dates at Kensington Palace or Mummies and Us outings. Leonore can join George for swim lessons at Buckingham Palace. Two nannies pushing prams at Kensington Palace Gardens. British & Swedish paps falling over themselves, trying to get the best shot.
A real princess for George. I think the United Kingdom and Sweden should have a marital treaty, ready to go, by next year, at the earliest. On a personal note, for me, such a marriage would be heavenly as George and Leonore are both descendants of Queen Victoria.
It won't be long until the Daily Mail reports that Catherine and Madeleine are BEST BUDS!
