According to the Seattle Post Intelligencer, Princess Madeleine of Sweden has cancelled plans to attend Seattle's Scandinavian week-long celebrations.
Although a spokesman for Sweden's Seattle consulate says "I have no idea whatsoever as to the reason for the change," one can assume that the princess, who is in New York, nursing a broken heart, does not want to face public scrutiny. The Swedish press would certainly be in full force if Madeleine had carried out her scheduled engagements.
Madeleine's older sister, Crown Princess Victoria, will step in and attend several of the Sweden week events.
Crown Princess Victoria will marry Daniel Westling on June 19.
Princess Madeleine did, however, carry out engagements in Florida and in New York.
