Princess Madeleine

She is 36 years old, and she is the youngest child of king Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia. Her sister, crown Princess Victoria will inherit the crown by right of birth.

Sweden has always been a progressive country: the fact that she became the first European monarchy, which established the succession to the throne regardless of gender (even 1980’s), nobody was surprised. For comparison, in the UK similar changes to the legislation were made in 2011 and adopted in 2013.

Princess Madeleine, the third of the Royal children’s right to the throne, married Christopher O’neill in 2013 at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. She is an active member of the movement for the rights of children and works closely with the world childhood Foundation, the organization founded by her mother Queen Silvia. The main mission of the world childhood Foundation is defined as: «to Stimulate, encourage and facilitate the development of programs to prevent abuse, exploitation or sexual abuse of children.»

Princess Madeleine co-founded the organization ThankYou by Childhood in the development of programs for the protection of children’s rights at the global level. In the framework of this initiative, she also led the campaign #EyesWideOpen.
