Engagement between Princess Madeleine and Mr. Jonas Bergström
Today, Tuesday 11 August 2009, the engagement between Her Royal Highness Princess Madeleine and Mr. Jonas Bergström was announced.
After His Majesty The King of Sweden had given his consent to the marriage between the Princess and Mr. Bergström, His Majesty, in accordance with the procedures set out in the Swedish Constitution, requested the approval by the Swedish Government, which subsequently has been communicated to His Majesty.
The wedding date is not decided.
Meeting with the press Media is invited to meet with Princess Madeleine and Mr. Jonas Bergström Tuesday 11 August at 16 o'clock at Solliden Palace. This will not be a traditional press conference, but rather a photo opportunity with a possibility to put a few questions to the couple.
