THIRD PRINCE

Showing their adorable newborn son dressed in all white, the royal couple shared their exciting news that they had become parents for the third time. The caption of the photo revealed the prince's name reading:

"Prins Julian."

The Swedish Royal Court released a statement sharing Prince Julian's full name as Julian Herbert Folke. He carries the prince's title because he is born into the royal family but will not be addressed as a Royal Highness.

SEVENTH IN LINE

Prince Carl's third son takes his place in the royal succession and is seventh in line for the Swedish throne. The royal baby is the eighth grandchild of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, who currently hold the reigning titles.

The new father couldn't subdue his excitement over his third child's arrival as he shared his emotion in the statement released after Prince Julian's birth. Prince Carl shared:

"We are so happy and grateful to be able to welcome our third son to our family. Princess Sofia and I, and his two big brothers, have all been longing for this day."

CHANGE IN TITLES

The lack of the HRH (His Royal Highness) title in front of Prince Julian's name comes after King Carl XVI Gustaf decided to change how titles are given throughout the Swedish royal family.

Queen Elizabeth's oldest granddaughter, Zara Tindall gave birth to her third child. Tindall birthed her son on her bathroom floor.

Only members of the royal family are expected to carry out duties related to the Head of State, which means that royal children born from Prince Julian onwards will not form part of The Royal House.

THE ROYAL LIFE

Regardless of their royal titles, Princess Sofia and Prince Carl still advocate for a somewhat normal life for their children during their childhood years. Princess Sofia's Instagram feed attests to that as she shared about their holiday plans.

The Swedish royals were not exempt from the travel bans imposed upon the world when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, which resulted in Prince Carl and his family staying home for a staycation during the summer of last year.

Instead of jet-setting across the globe, the royals and their two toddlers headed to Sweden's Nynäs Nature Reserve to enjoy the great outdoors that their own home country has to offer while being safe amidst the pandemic.

The Swedish royal family isn't the only one to have grown recently, as Queen Elizabeth's oldest granddaughter, Zara Tindall, gave birth to her third child. Tindall birthed her son on her bathroom floor.
