Princess Madeleine of Sweden is saying goodbye to the Old World for the new. The Princess, who is seventh in line for the Swedish throne, announced that she is relocating to the United States, reported PEOPLE. 

Madeleine and her husband British-American financier husband Chris O’Neill revealed Thursday that they are moving to Florida. In the fall, they'll move their three children: Princess Leonore, 4, and Prince Nicolas, 3, and Princess Adrienne, 4 months.

“The time and opportunity for the United States is good for the family when the children are still in pre-school age,” the Swedish Royal Court announced in a press release.

Madeleine will continue her work with the World Childhood Foundation after the move.

“Princess Madeleine has a great commitment to children’s rights and will continue working with the World Childhood Foundation and, through the move, be able to focus more on the activities in the United States,” the Swedish Royal Court announced.

Her husband had previously been working in the United States, but he will also continue his business in Europe, said the Court.

The couple are no stranger to moves. They had been living in London, but the 36-year-old moved back to Sweden to give birth to the couple's third child.

This won't be the first move to the U.S. for the family. They lived in New York City during the early years of their marriage.

Before the big move announcement, the family released a new official portrait of the family of now five. In the photo, which is taken in a beautiful outdoor setting, O’Neill cradles baby Adrienne and Princess Madeleine holds hands with Nicholas.

Like English Princess Charlotte, Princess Leonore steals the show. She rocks a pink dress with a matching bow in her hair while smiling widely and holding flowers.

Back in June, Princess Adrienne was christened. The family shared sweet photos from the occasion taken in their colorful palace.
