Princess Madeleine of Sweden has broken off her engagement with attorney Jonas Bergstrom, the Royal Court announced.

"They have decided that the best for them is to go their separate ways," the palace said in a brief statement issued April 24.

The court asked for the media to leave the princess and her former fiancé alone.

"They need peace and quiet in this difficult situation. The heavy coverage does not ease the situation for them," it said, adding it would not comment further on the issue.

The couple announced their engagement in August last year, but a date had not yet been set for the wedding.
