Just last week it was announced that five grandchildren of King Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden would have their royal titles dropped. Fast forward to today, Monday, October 14th and it’s been revealed that Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill‘s children Leonore, 5, Nicolas, 4, and Adrienne, 19 months, were three of those five grandchildren.
No longer using their royal titles means the three siblings no longer need to take part in any royal duties or be known as His or Her Royal Highness.
The move is welcomed by their mum — Princess Madeleine — who sees the change as a positive one. Speaking on her Instagram account and sharing this sweet snap of her three children, she revealed:
“This change has been planned for a long time.
Chris and I think it is good that our children now have a greater opportunity to shape their own lives in the future as individuals.”
