Princess Sofia of Sweden and husband Prince Carl Philip were spotted leaving Danderyds hospital hand in hand after welcoming their third child together today.

The couple, who married in 2015, put safety first in protective masks, while Prince Carl Philip carried their newborn baby, who was wrapped in a light blue patterned blanket, in a handy car seat.

Already clearly in love, Princess Sofia, 36, who cut a relaxed figure in a light blue shirt, black jeans and trainers, was able to watch her little one – before getting into a waiting chauffeured car.

The royal woman, who wore her sleeves rolled up, remained unobtrusive and completed her casual look with a beige scarf and black cap.

It comes just hours after the royal couple revealed Instagram they had a third son, a brother of Prince Alexander, four, and Prince Gabriel, three.

The palace’s official statement read: “ The Marshal’s office is pleased to announce that HRH Princess Sofia gave birth to a healthy and prosperous son at Danderyd Hospital on Friday, March 26, 2021 at 11:19 AM. Both mother and child are doing well. ‘

It’s unclear exactly when the royal couple tested positive, but a spokesman said Sofia is being wiped clean as part of her job at Sophiahemmet – a private hospital in Stockholm.

She had previously been pictured wearing scrubs while treating coronavirus patients in the hospital during the Swedish outbreak.

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.
