Princess Madeleine of Sweden loves the same television shows you do

By Emmy Griffiths

Royals, they're just like us! At least that's what Princess Madeleine of Sweden's husband, Christopher O'Neill, recently revealed in an interview with Swedish men's magazine, King. The American-British financier spoke candidly about his wife's love of popular television shows, including The Crown and Suits.

Chris told the magazine: "I've met the woman of my life, the woman I love. But it is clear that it has its challenging sides to be married to a princess. Of course, it has complicated my life, for obvious reasons… I have no desire to achieve any kind of fame, nor have any benefits of it in my professional life. It happens that I'm mad about Madeleine. But in the end, you learn to live with it."

Princess Madeleine is a fan of The Crown and Suits

Speaking about the press scrutiny into the Swedish royal family, he continued: "It happens that I read in the media and react to insinuations that she does not really work as Princess of Sweden, and I get upset on her behalf. She sometimes chooses not to use her princess title in what she does, which means that much of her work can happen behind the scenes, which in turn means that the press rarely draws attention to it. And why should they? She has made an effort just to avoid it."

Apparently he's a Game of Thrones fan, I was told.
