The 33-year-old seemed to be enjoying being back in limelight after the birth of her son Prince Nicolas in June. The Swedish royal and her banker husband flew down from London to appear on the show which is their first ever joint television interview.
Madeleine and Chris appeared on the talk show “Skavlan” hosted by Norwegian journalist Fredrik Skavlan. The couple joined Chef Oliver and Adele to wish viewers Merry Christmas in Swedish.

“Thank you very much, Adele,” the impressed host Federick said to the singer. The four icons and the host then tried to do the Christmas wishes in Norwegian and got it spot on.
