HRH Princess Madeleine of Sweden has returned to NYC (actually she left November 25, 2010.) The pretty Princess has been living in the Big Apple for some time now. So why did she leave her beautiful homeland of Sweden for NYC? The reason: A broken heart. You see… her idiot ex-fiance, Jonas Bergström, cheated on her last Spring while the couple were still engaged.
So what does she do whilst in NYC? No, she doesn’t shop all day, rather Princess Madeleine works for one of her mother’s charities. She also decided to rent a massive apartment, according to various Swedish magazines, where she has decided to live until next Fall 2011.
In a recent interview with Dagens Industri, a Swedish magazine, Princess Madeleine was asked what attracted her to NYC and whether she would live here permanently. Madeleine replied:
It must be the energy. It doesn’t matter how tired one is, the city just lifts you up and pumps in energy. It’s strange. That it’s also a junction for interesting people also feels very stimulating…it was nice to leave Sweden. Right now I see New York as my home.
Now, in a couple of days — December 10, 2010 to be exact — the Nobel Prize Gala will be held in Stockholm. This is a big event for all, and unfortunately this year Princess Madeleine decided that she will not attend. How sad. But, hey… at least HRH Prince Daniel (Crown Princess Victoria’s husband) will be at this magnificent event!
Princess Madeleine will return to Sweden five days before Christmas.
