Princess Madeleine of Sweden''s husband, Christopher O'Neill, has opened up about his wife in an exclusive interview with the Swedish men's fashion magazine, King. The 43-year-old American-British financier spoke candidly about the couple's lives together, while also revealing Madeleine's favourite TV shows. According to Chris, the mother-of-two is a huge fan of The Crown, a Netflix show which follows the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the beginning of her reign. He also revealed that Madeleine enjoys Suits, the show which made future British royal Meghan Markle's name. Speaking about their lives together, Chris told the magazine: "I've met the woman of my life, the woman I love. But it is clear that it has its challenging sides to be married to a princess. Of course, it has complicated my life, for obvious reasons… I have no desire to achieve any kind of fame, nor have any benefits of it in my professional life. It happens that I'm mad about Madeleine. But in the end, you learn to live with it."

Speaking about the press scrutiny into the Swedish royal family, he continued: "It happens that I read in the media and react to insinuations that she does not really work as Princess of Sweden, and I get upset on her behalf. She sometimes chooses not to use her princess title in what she does, which means that much of her work can happen behind the scenes, which in turn means that the press rarely draws attention to it. And why should they? She has made an effort just to avoid it."

Madeleine, meanwhile, isn't the only royal to enjoy watching a boxset. Alicia Vikander recently revealed that she learned Prince William was a big fan of Game of Thrones during William and Kate's royal tour of Sweden and Norway. Speaking about their conversation, she said: "Well, I've seen The Crown. It was actually the first thing my friend and I started talking about with William. Apparently he's a Game of Thrones fan, I was told."
