Swedish princess to marry hedge fund partner
(10-25 17:20)

Sweden's Princess Madeleine, the youngest child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, is engaged to marry US-British businessman Chris O'Neill, the palace announced.
“We are both extremely happy and delighted. It is a very special day for us,'' the 30-year-old princess said on the palace website, AFP reports.
A wedding date has not been set, but it will take place sometime next summer, she said.
The couple met in New York, where the princess has been living since April 2010 after a broken engagement to a Stockholm lawyer alleged by media to have cheated on her. She has been working there with the World Childhood Foundation, a charity for marginalized children set up in 1999 by her mother.
London-born O'Neill, 38, works in finance and is currently a partner at Noster Capital, which has offices in New York and London.
The couple said O'Neill proposed in early October after asking the king's permission.
They plan to continue living in New York for the time being, she said.
Madeleine's older sister is Crown Princess Victoria, 35, who married Daniel Westling in June 2010. They have a daughter, Princess Estelle, born in February.
The newly-engaged princess also has a brother, Prince Carl Philip, 33.
