Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip of Sweden shared a first glimpse of their newborn, hours after their third son’s name was revealed.

The pair went on Instagram to share an adorable photo of their son, Prince Julian Herbert Folke of Sweden, Duke of Halland, who was born on Friday, March 26, in a hospital in Greater Stockholm.

Prince Julian’s grandfather, King Carl Gustaf, revealed his name and duchy this morning at a cabinet meeting at the Royal Palace in Stockholm, both of which are a moving tribute to members of the royal family.

Prince Julian is the Duke of Halland, the former duchy of King Carl’s beloved uncle, Prince Bertil, whose former home Carl and Sofia are currently living with their children.

Meanwhile, Folke is one of the king’s middle names and was the name of King Oscar II’s grandson, who negotiated the release of about 31,000 prisoners from German concentration camps during World War II.

The adorable photo of Prince Julian wearing a cream-colored sweater was taken by his father, Prince Carl Philip.

Unlike his older brothers, Prince Julian will not receive Royal Highness status after King Gustaf revoked the HRH style of Sofia and Carl’s children in October 2019.

Although the children have lost their position in the Royal Household and are not expected to fulfill higher royal duties, they remain in the line of succession.

On Friday, the royal couple revealed on Instagram that they had a third son, a brother of Prince Alexander, four, and Prince Gabriel, three.

Known as the real Prince Charming of Sweden, Carl-Philip broke the hearts of royal viewers around the world when he announced his engagement to former glamor model and reality TV star Sofia Hellqvist in 2014, four years after the news of their relationship made headlines for the first time. .

The couple welcomed their first son, Prince Alexander, in April 2016 and another little boy, Prince Gabriel, arrived in August of the following year.

Born an heir to the throne, a law was passed in 1980 giving his older sister Victoria precedence in the line of succession.
