Today marks the beginning of wedding celebrations in Sweden for King Carl Gustaf’s second daughter, Princess Madeline to British businessman, Chris O’Neil. In 2010 Princess Madeline moved to New York City where she began working with the World Childhood Foundation, an organisation her mother co-founded. It was in New York where the princess met Mr O’Neil and in January of the following year that the couple began dating. The happy couple announced their engagement in October of last year. Mr O’Neil has requested that he remain a private citizen and not share his wife’s royal titles and will continue to pursue a career in finance after the marriage.
Let’s take a walk down memory lane at some of Sweden’s royal weddings in the past. . .
