The newly engaged couple got on the plane at four o'clock on Thursday afternoon. They are in the UK to visit Chris O'Neill family.

The brown-haired, blue-eyed princess described O'Neill as her "soulmate" and said he had opened her heart -- perhaps reflecting her heartbreak after a previous engagement was called off in 2010 amid reports of infidelity by her then fiance.

Princess Madeleine Therese Amelie Josephine, to give her full name, is the youngest child of Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia and fourth in line to the Scandanavian nation's throne.

The couple, who live in New York, met through mutual friends, Princess Madeleine said, in an interview released by the royal court along with the engagement announcement.

Princess Madeleine, 30, said they had been great friends at first before romance blossomed, sharing the same humor and having "a lot of fun together."
