Sweden’s Prince Carl-Philip and Princess Sofia have made their family Instagram account public, thereby offering fans a glimpse at a rarely seen side of the royals.
The couple, who are parents to Prince Alexander, 2, and 8-months-old Prince Gabriel, have been filling the feed with photographs since last year, but have only now chosen to share the contents with the public.
Sofia and Carl-Philip made the account public on Sunday, sharing a picture of themselves with a message welcoming their followers.
The message reads: “As you can see, we have already posted photos for some time to give you an insight into our work, the missions we are carrying out and, above all, the issues we are burning for.”
They signed off with: “Hope you want to follow us!”
The candid snaps capture the Prince and Princess exchanging a smile during a board meeting for their foundation, a group shot taken on a family outing on Valentine’s Day, and the Princess’ own snap of her eldest boy, Alexander, gently tickling his new baby brother on the nose.
Prince Carl Philip of Sweden, Duke of Värmland is the only son and the second of three children of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia. As of 2016, Prince Carl Philip is fourth in the line of succession, after his older sister, Crown Princess Victoria, his niece and goddaughter Princess Estelle, and his nephew Prince Oscar (Wikipedia). He married Princess Sofia, Duchess of Värmland in 2015.
Before marrying Prince Carl Philip, Sofia was a glamour model and reality TV star.
