With her Instagram post on Easter Sunday, Princess Madeleine (41) caused slight uncertainty among her followers. Because she was only seen in the photo with her two daughters Princess Leonore (10) and Princess Adrienne (6), many fans of the Swedish royal family asked themselves where her husband Chris O’Neill (49) and son Prince Nicolas were (8) had remained. In addition, many commentators were surprised at Leonore’s unhappy face as well as Madeleine’s own face, which some thought was strangely lit.

At least Madeleine didn’t leave her Instagram followers in the dark for long about the whereabouts of the male family members. In her Instagram story on Tuesday (April 2nd) she posted a photo that shows Chris O’Neill and Prince Nicolas from behind, arm in arm, walking barefoot on the beach. The Swedish princess wrote: “Some men just want to stay in the background.”

Princess Madeleine is the youngest daughter of King Carl XVI. Gustaf (77) and Queen Silvia (80) of Sweden. She has been married to businessman Christopher O’Neill since 2013. The family lives together in their adopted home of Florida. The family was originally planned to move back to Sweden in 2023, but this was postponed to 2024 last autumn. Whether this will actually take place remains questionable.
