STOCKHOLM — Another royal wedding beckons in Europe: This time it is Sweden’s Princess Madeleine who is getting ready to tie the knot.
Madeleine and her U.S.-British boyfriend Christopher O’Neill announced their engagement on the royal palace website today.
The 30-year-old Madeleine is the youngest of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia’s three children and is fourth in line to the throne.
Madeleine said the wedding would take place in Sweden in the summer of 2013, and that more details would be released later.
Madeleine lives in New York where she works for the World Childhood Foundation, a nonprofit founded by her mother.
O’Neill works as a partner and head of research at Noster Capital, a hedge fund with offices in London and New York.
