Princess Madeleine to Deliver Baby in the US
The Local ^ | 11 Jan 2014

Posted on 01/13/2014 4:25:24 PM PST by nickcarraway

Princess Madeleine and her husband Christopher O'Neil have decided that their child will be born in the US, the Swedish Royal Court has announced.

Madeleine reveals royal baby's gender: report (30 Oct 13) Pregnant Princess to attend Nobel alone (19 Oct 13) Royal baby on the way for Swedish princess (03 Sep 13)

"After careful consideration and in consultation with the King and Queen, Princess Madeleine and Mr. Christopher O'Neill have decided that their child will be born in New York," Svante Lindqvist at the Royal Court wrote in a statement.

The baby, set to become fifth in line to the Swedish throne, is expected to arrive at the end of February 2014.

Writer and royal expert Roger Lundgren has explained Madeleine's decision to give birth in New York as a purely practical decision.

"She has had a tough pregnancy, she missed the Nobel banquette for example, and it is simply more convenient to give birth there than in Sweden," he said.

"But many here at home will probably be disappointed, they want their princess back home in Sweden, as part of the royal family. The fact that Madeleine will give birth abroad cements a distance to her."

Lundgren explained that the decision carries no constitutional consequences.

"It has no constitutional significance where she gives birth, as the King and Queen have given their approval."

"Today we live in a global world, we live around the world and experience new things. This will be an international child which will get the best of different worlds," Lundgren told the TT news agency.

Ages of socialized medicine in Sweden have likely resulted in sub par hospitals.

BS!!

A high-risked delivery is more likely to result in a successful outcome for mother and child in the US. For now - BOcare will being us down to the 3rd world level!

I guess they are coming to the US to take advantage of America’s subpar health system (according to the Liberals in this country and abroad).

Well the US has the best hospitals in the world but these royals should not get used to coming here for excellent medicine because the Democrats are hard at work bringing the US down to their level.

Exactly! Why not have your royal bebe in your own country, delivered by your own SOCIALIST HEALTHCARE docs?

Her hubby is Brit...why not deliver there?

if you believe those that say 0bama was/is eligible under A2S1, then their child could be eligible to become POTUS.

at that point, a Queen of a foreign country could also be POTUS... which is EXACTLY the situation the founders were looking to avoid by inserting the phrase ‘natural born citizen’ into the Constitution

this is just another example why 0bama supporters and anti-birthers are full of sh*t

Maybe parts of Sweden but they have had a lot of trouble in places like Malmo with um immigrants. It's not safe there any more.

I remember seeing pictures of their wedding not too long ago. She's very pretty and married a Wall Street stock broker or banker (almost wrote ster lol).

Yes, you are. You are saying Sweden is better than the U.S. and Swedish critiques of the U.S. are valid. If you are Swedish, I have no problem with that. If you are U.S., kinda pathetic.

Obamacare is for the masses.
There will be plenty of elite healthcare for those able to pay the required costs.

“....they have had a lot of trouble in places like Malmo with um immigrants. It’s not safe there any more.”

.
Never thought that the once proud Vikings would surrender their country to a bunch of bearded barbarians.

And all that in a matter of some 30 years.

I’d better shut up after seeing what is happening here at home and neither political party nor the Tea Party daring to reverse the islamization of America.

Listen, cowboy . . . and rein in your horse. The U.S. is heading down toward Sweden's direction, and Sweden is heading up toward the United States. It's not "anti-American" to admit it.

I could use some of your "fire" on FR's Russia threads, where FReepers swoon over Vladi Putin like some overweight woman at an Obama rally.
