Princess Madeleine of Sweden visited Cape Canaveral in Florida ahead of the launch of the Falcon 9 rocket.

The Princess, who resides in Miami, was at Cape Canaveral with the Swedish Prime Minister Mats Persson and representatives of the Swedish Space Agency before Swedish astronaut Marcus Wandt took off from the Kennedy Space Center to the International Space Station.

Wandt will stay at the International Space Station for two weeks.

Madeleine was seen chatting with Sweden’s first astronaut, Professor Christer Fuglesang, and she later posted about her visit to the famous space city, saying: “Exciting days here in Florida! 🚀

“Earlier this week I had the privilege of meeting the Minister of Education, representatives of the Space Board, the Defence Forces, Saab and other Swedes on site for Marcus Wandt’s space expedition. Many interesting and exciting works are behind this project. We wish Marcus good luck in space!”

The Royal House also wished Wandt well on his adventure, writing on social media: “Good luck on the journey [Marcus]!”
