Re: "Brought up in Sweden"
Has there been any official clarification on the definition of that phrase?
To me the children are being brought up here in South Florida, clearly not Sweden. Or does the phrase refer to education only and therefore Princess Madeleine will return to Sweden so her children can be educated there and remain in the line of succession?
It is open for interpretation. When the Act of Succession was written in 1810, they were afraid to have a King, who had been brought up abroad, maybe at a Royal Court in an enemy country. They couldn't anticipate that it would be possible to fly to other countries in a shorter time than it would take to go from Stockholm to Gotherburg back then.
