Not to mention that both Margareth of Connaught and Victoria of Baden were daughters of prussian princesses.

Carl Gustav looks a lot like his father.

He was an interesting royal.As I read somewhere, historians protray him as sympathetic to the Nazi movement in Germany.Some even called him "The German Prince".However there is not a lot of proof of this,as this was just speculation.

Many of the Swedish royal princes have got married in the bride's home country, Gustav VI Adolf got married twice in England; Gustav V married Victoria of Baden inKarlsruhe in Germany; Oscar II married Sophia of Nassau in Germany, Oscar I and Joséphine of Leuchtenberg were wedded twice, first a Catholic cermony in Germany without the groom present and then a Lutheran cermony in Stockholm. So Gustav Adolf followed in the tradition of his father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

It was fabulous to learn that so many Swedish princes married their fiancées in the bride's home country.
