    This newfound TikTok popularity is only the latest chapter in the Prince’s lifelong journey in the royal limelight. Born in May 1979 as the second child of King Carl Gustaf and Queen Sonja of Sweden, Prince Carl Philip initially entered the world as the Crown Prince under Sweden’s agnatic order of succession.

    However, a historic change in the Swedish succession law in January 1980 paved the way for his elder sister, Princess Victoria, to ascend as Crown Princess. Currently, she is positioned as the future queen of Sweden. After having the burden of future monarchy off his shoulders, Prince Carl Philip pursued diverse education, both in Sweden and abroad.

    His career trajectory has been notable with military training with the Swedish Navy, followed by studies in graphic design and agricultural science. The prince soon rose to the rank of Major in the Swedish Defence University. Since then, Prince Carl Philip has seamlessly balanced his royal duties with academic pursuits.

    In June 2014, Prince Carl Philip announced his engagement to Sofia Hellqvist, a former model and reality star. The two got married a year later at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. Now known as Princess Sofia, Prince Carl’s wife shares three sons with him.

    However, a significant shift occurred in 2019 when King Carl Gustaf decided to strip certain grandchildren of their royal titles, including Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia’s sons, Prince Alexander, Prince Gabriel, and Prince Julian. The couple accepted the decision while issuing a statement about the same on social media at the time.

    Prince Carl Philip now continues to captivate audiences with his charm, grace, and unwavering dedication to his royal duties, personal passions as well as family.
