ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Newly-weds Swedish Princess Madeleine and her husband Chris O'Neill left the palace in a horse-drawn carriage after their wedding on Saturday. Princess Madeleine, fourth in line to the throne of Sweden, married her U.S.-British banker fiancé at a wedding attended by European royals and socialites from across the Atlantic. The New York-based princess married before some 600 guests at the Royal Chapel inside the royal palace in the Old Town in central Stockholm. After the ceremony and a 21-gun salute, a horse and carriage took the newlyweds on a short cortege to a wedding banquet hosted by King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia in nearby Drottningholm Palace, the official residence of the Swedish royal couple. Following the cortege, they were taken to Drottningholm by boat. The 30-year-old princess made headlines when younger for partying in Stockholm, then winning some sympathy among Swedes after her engagement with a long term boyfriend ended in 2010 after reports he was found cheating on her. O'Neill, 38, who was born and raised in Britain but also has U.S. citizenship, will not take the title of prince so as he can continue his career in New York, where Princess Madeleine works at a children's charity foundation founded by her mother. The Princess, whose full name is Madeleine Therese Amelie Josephine, Duchess of Halsingland and Gastrikland, has two older siblings; Crown Princess Victoria, first in line to the throne, and Prince Carl Philip. Princess Madeleine has few public duties and usually stays out of the limelight.
