Sweden's Princess Madeleine marries the New York banker Christopher O’Neill.

The 30-year-old Madeleine is the youngest child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia and is fourth in line to the Swedish throne.

O'Neill proposed to Madeleine in October 2012 after having known her for two years. The couple met in New York, where the Princess works for nonprofit World Childhood Foundation, which was founded by her mother.

The 38-years-old O'Neill was born in London and has both a British and American citizenship. He works as the head of research at Noster Capital, which is an international hedge fund.

In 2010, Madeleine broke off her previous engagement after the media had reported that her fiancé had cheated on her.
