Madeleine’s baby will be the glammest of them all

As 2014 sneaks upon us, The Local gives you its ten top news predictions for the year ahead. One a day over the festive period, and we start off with Sweden's most expensive reality soap - The Royal Family - and what name we think Princess Madeleine will give her child.

The birth of Princess Adele

Oh we do like Maddie, don't we? Miss Party Princess turned Mrs Hedge Fund. She didn't make it to this year's Nobel banquet. Unfortunately, as we for real missed her voluminous hair and ample… hm… sorry, but if you wore that dress with that cleavage you'll always be known as the Nobel Nymph. Even if it was eleven years ago.

This year Princess Madeleine was AWOL, as she had her quite possibly swollen feet up on the coffee table at home in New York – she's preggers, as you all know.

Which brings us to a pretty safe prediction. Sweden will get mini-princess number two next year. (We say princess because Madeleine reportedly ticked the pink box on an American baby apparel site). In the meantime, flick through some galleries of Princess Estelle.

Remember how picking the name "Estelle" had the king stuttering at the press conference and some royal "experts" saying it sounded like a cabaret singer…

Well, sing-along to this then you boring old fogey critics… The Local predicts that the glam princess will go all James Bond "Skyfall" on us all and nick the name of the theme-tune singer….


Long live Princess Adele!

Tune in tomorrow for the next prediction.
