In the press release, the Royal Court said, “Princess Christina, Mrs Magnuson has, since October, been treated for blood cancer with regular chemotherapy. The treatment has gone well. But the Princess’s blood cancer can not be cured with this treatment because it occurred in bone marrow stem cells that are resistant to chemotherapy.
In consultation with the family and doctors, the Princess has decided to undergo a stem cell transplant.”
They added that Princess Christina, her husband and sons, and the entire Swedish Royal Family would be focusing on the treatment.
It was announced in October that the Princess had been diagnosed with chronic leukaemia. At the time, they said she felt “relatively good” and would scale back her royal duties. However, they added that HRH would fulfil her commitments when her health allowed.
