Princess Madeleine and Queen Silvia help make sick girl's dream come true

Princess Madeleine of Sweden helped grant a little girl's lifelong wish this week along with her mother, Queen Silvia. The seriously ill seven-year-old named Enna had long dreamed of visiting the royal palace, and the mother-daughter duo personally welcomed her and her family with open arms and took them on a special tour that included a number of rooms not open to the public.

The visit was organised by the charity Min Stora Dag (My Special Day), which is the Swedish equivalent to the Make A Wish Foundation, and of which Madeleine is patron.

Little Enna was clearly delighted to come face-to-face with the royals, and proudly presented Madeleine with a picture she had drawn for her. She was accompanied to the palace by her older brother Omar and her mother Amira.

Mum-of-two Madeline later shared photographs of Enna's visit on her official Facebook page, writing: "Enna is 7 and her dream was to meet the Royal Family at the Palace. My mum and I are so blessed to be able to fulfil that dream for her today! So proud of all the work Min Stora Dag does."

The charity holds a very special place in Madeleine's heart. Earlier this year, she hosted a fairytale-themed tea party for children from Min Stora Dag. The youngsters were all invited to dress up in prince and princess costumes, and Madeleine herself re-wore her dress from the Nobel Peace Prize dinner, complete with the Swedish Aquamarine Kokoshnik tiara – much to the delight of the children. Her daughter, Princess Leonore, also attended the party.

It's been a busy week for the Swedish royals. On Friday, the family came together to celebrate the christening of Prince Alexander, the four-month-old son of Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip, at Drottningholm Palace Church. A few days later, the official christening photographs were released by the palace, showing the little prince surrounded by his loved ones on his special day.
