Princess Madeleine of Sweden, the youngest child of King Carl XVI and Queen Silvia is officially engaged to Chris O’Neill, a British-American financier based in New York.  Thirty-year-old Madeleine met thirty-eight-year old Chris in New York city where she works for the World Childhood Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Queen Silvia.  Chris O’Neill obtained a bachelor’s degree in international relations from Boston University and a master’s degree in business from Columbia University.  In a video released by the Swedish court, Chris said, “Madeleine and I have known each other for two years and I recently summoned up the courage to ask her to marry me.  Thankfully, she said yes.”  In 2010, Princess Madeleine broke off an engagement and so it’s hoped that this time round, a happier ending will take place.  The wedding is expected to take place in the summer of 2013.  Photos:
