Kate Middleton is fighting to remain the world’s most popular Royal. Princess Madeleine of Sweden and her adorable family are gaining on The Duchess of Cambridge. Swedish Royal family fever is catching on as Princess Madeleine made another bold move to one-up the Brits.
Princess Madeleine is maneuvering to be make her family Europe’s most popular and she took another step in doing so by allowing three-month-old son Prince Nicolas’s baptism to be screened on Swedish television. The entire country was charmed by Princess Leonore as she nearly stole the show by playing and dancing in the aisle during the ceremony.
This rivalry between HRH Princess Madeleine and HRH the Duchess of Cambridge is nothing new. Kate Middleton never imagined that there would be any royal bride who could come close to being as popular. But Princess Madeleine – also titled Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland – snuck in under the radar!
Madeleine’s wedding to British-born banker Chris O’Neil in June 2013 made Duchess Kate green with envy and reportedly she refused to attend with the Duke of Cambridge. Queen Elizabeth sent the Earl and Countess of Essex in the Cambridge’s place.
Sweden’s King Carl and Queen Silvia rarely interfere in Princess Madeleine’s life while Kate Middleton sits around waiting to get her orders from Queen Elizabeth. Duchess Kate is ridiculously jealous that Princess Madeleine is a Royal power-player and she’s not – and may have to wait two decades before she is even close.
The Swedish Royal family is gaining popularity as the world grows weary of the Duchess of Cambridge’s entitled pouting and foot-stomping. Queen Elizabeth needs to get the Wills and Kate back on course before it’s too late and Sweden’s Royal family has totally eclipsed them.
Is this the battle of the Royal families? Can Princess Madeleine and her young family be more popular than the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge? Are Royal watchers tired of decades of bad behavior from inside the British Monarchy they’re washing their hands of them?
