Princess Madeleine Engaged to New York Banker Christopher O’NeillOct 26, 2012 @ 11:28 am
Pending royal wedding alert! Princess Madeleine of Sweden, the 30-year-old daughter of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, is engaged to 38-year-old New York-based British financier Christopher O’Neill. The two met stateside in the Big Apple, and the news was first reported by a Swedish tabloid earlier this week. The couple then took to the official Swedish royal Web site to announce their betrothal in a video. “Chris proposed to me in New York at the start of October, and we are very happy,” Madeleine said in the video, recorded Wednesday at the Drottningholm Palace outside of Stockholm. It’s been a big week for royal betrothals, with Princess Stephanie getting married (in an Elie Saab gown!) to His Royal Highness Prince Guillame of Luxembourg on Monday. We wonder who Madeleine will choose to wear on her big day!
