A princess about to pop
Princess Madeleine of Sweden is about a month away from giving birth to her first baby. In days gone by, royal mummies to be would usually retire from public view about now and go into confinement to prepare for the arrival of their little prince or princess (Madeleine's baby is a little girl). But in the 21st century, everything is different and now this royal lady in waiting is still at work and posting photos of herself on her Facebook page as she contemplates a commute home in the snow of New York. The Big Apple will be the birthplace of the fifth in line to the throne of Sweden next month. In the meantime, it's the setting for this royal mum to be to show how regal maternity trends are changing.
