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.
If only ALL the anchor babies were Swedish...
We need more of those.
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!
Obama, is that you?
You want to live in socialist hellhole?
Why can’t she have DHL deliver it?
I don’t know where you are living at the moment, but Sweden looks rather attractive right now.
I guess they are coming to the US to take advantage of Americas 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.
Is John Roberts trying to adopt another one ahead of forthcoming Obamacare challenges?
Her hubby is Brit...why not deliver there?
They have a name for people like you. Muslim-coddling socialists.
Hedging their bets for the 2056 US presidential election.
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
Lotsa Swedes have moved to Norway.
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).
I have no doubt Swedes would insult U.S. people. I cna see which side you are on.
I’m not insulting “U.S. people,” just insulting you.
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.
Actually, the INA covers diplomats and royalty. They can’t drop an anchor baby. They are the exception to the jus soli laws.
We’re all anchor babies now.
Well at least they won’t be signing up for welfare and trying to bring the rest of their impoverished family with them. :-)
Look, I pick the U.S. over Sweden. You have your right to believe that the U.S. is filled with worthless scumbags. I have the right to disagree.
We’ll give the baby back to Sweden in exchange for the Swedish Bikini Team...
On the left or on the right?
I’m pretty sure they are financially stable. :-)
The new child will be forced to file US tax returns the rest of her life - even if sh leaves and never returns.
Her husband is a Wall Sreet banker!
She can have my baby...
Where will the princess go to deliver her next baby after Obamacare has established a solid foothold in the US?
Obamacare is for the masses.
There will be plenty of elite healthcare for those able to pay the required costs.
We'll take him. He is the first here.
I’m sick of anti-Americans attacking this country and I didn’t expect to find it on FR.
Both, in my view.
“....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.
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.
We only like Putin because he’s “not Obama” LOL
