Madeleine from Sweden presents Teddy for the first time

Princess Madeleine of Sweden, 39, shared an unexpected message on her social media on March 29, 2022. “I didn’t properly introduce you to our newest family member, Teddy!” »Princess Madeleine wrote on Instagram, in the caption of a photo posted March 29, to the delight of her 300,000 followers.

“Teddy is a real teddy who hugs and loves us all very much”, says the second daughter of King Carl XVI. Gustaf and Queen Silvia. Teddy introduces his dog for the first time. It appears that this dog is a Labradoodle, also known as a Labrapoodle, a hybrid breed, a cross between a Labrador and a Poodle.

In April 2020, Crown Princess Victoria introduced her new dog, Rio. Rio is a Cavapoo, a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Poodle. It seems that the two sisters adopted a dog almost simultaneously. The most observant had already noticed that a dog had joined Princess Madeleine’s home.

Almost simultaneously with Crown Princess Victoria’s presentation of Rio, the Royal Court of Sweden released a video to mark Easter 2020. In this video we witness a virtual meeting between the different households of the royal family. We see Princess Madeleine and her husband responding to the meeting via video conference call from Miami, with a new dog on their knees.

It is therefore understood that Teddy is already at least two years old and has been living in Florida with Crown Princess Victoria’s big sister since at least Easter 2020. The Labradoodle is a breed that is gaining ground in Scandinavian royal families. It is also the favorite breed of the heir family from Norway.
