Meet Sweden's newest prince

Once his dad was the only prince in the line of succession, now Sweden is over run with male royals. And the latest man of the royal house made his debut in front of the cameras as he headed home from hospital with his parents. Carl Philip, Sofia and the new prince of Sweden are beginning life as a family of three.

The newest prince in Europe is just visible as his parents take him home from hospital the day after his birth

The new fifth in line to the throne of Sweden was born at 6.25pm on April 19th 2016 at the Danderyd Hospital. His proud father spoke to the press soon afterwards and promised a glimpse of his son in due time and today we got that first look, albeit of the top of his head and quite a lot of blanket as he nestled in his car seat for the drive back to Drottningholm.

We find out the little prince's name tomorrow at a special cabinet meeting while the Te Deum for his safe arrival takes place on Friday. In the meantime, Sofia of Sweden is back at home with the two men in her life and Carl Philip has yet another male companion in the line of succession - his own son.

There is a special page about Sweden's newest royal here.
