In the autumn of 1986, he started school at Smedslättsskolan in Bromma which he attended at junior level. For the intermediate level, the Prince attended Ålstensskolan in Bromma, proceeding from there, in the autumn of 1992, to senior level at Enskilda Gymnasiet in Stockholm. In the autumn of 1994 Prince Carl Philip started at the private school Kent in Connecticut, USA, where he spent two years. The Prince then followed a science programme at Lundsberg upper secondary school. He matriculated in the spring of 1999.
Military; The Prince has completed his military service at the Amphibious Batallion at Vaxholm's Coast Artillery Regiment as a combat boat commander (combat boat 90) in the autumn of 2000. For the time being the Prince will now fulfil an education to become a naval officer in the Swedish Navy.
Some facts; In accordance with the 1979 Act of Succession which entered into force on January 1, 1980, Prince Carl Philip is second in the line of succession, next to Crown Princess Victoria
Even though he's male, Prince Carl Philip of Sweden won't become king of his country. That's because the progressive Swedes decided that the oldest child born to the monarch, regardless of gender, will be next in line to the throne. Since his sister Victoria was born first, she'll reign as Queen one day. But all isn't lost for Carl. He's grown into a very good looking young man and, despite his line in the Swedish succession, he's still quite a royal catch.
Carl Philip Edmund Bertil (thank goodness that Bertil wasn't his first name!) was born to King Carl Gustaf XVI and Queen Silvia on May 13, 1979 at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. His official titles are Prince of Sweden and Duke of Varmland. As part of his military service, he recently returned from a 166-day stint with the Swedish royal navy on the HMS Carlskrona, a ship that visited Chile, Puerto Rico, Argentina, South Africa, and Greece, among others. He is training to become a combat-boat commander. His navy service has taken him out of the spotlight in the last few months, probably a welcome break from media attention. But his tour of duty meant that he had to miss his sister Princess Madeleine's graduation from high school and Sweden's National Day festivities. On the official royal web site, his interests are listed as outdoor life, swimming, skiing, and football, which probably means he likes soccer.
As for his love life, in January of this year he took the bold step of admitting to a relationship with a girl by the name of Emma Pernauld, a commoner who works for a publicity agency (what's up with the Swedish royals and their PR partners?). The couple was photographed together last summer while they were on vacation in St. Tropez, on the south coast of France, and they've been photographed in public on a couple of other occasions.
When a reporter from Expressen, the Swedish publication, asked him if he was involved with Emma, he replied with a resounding, "Yes." When the reporter then asked if he was going to have time for his girlfriend while fulfilling his military duties, he said that he would figure it out. How sweet! We'll have to keep an eye on this one!
STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Swedish Prince Carl Philip is leaving home and will move to an apartment of his own in the spring, the Royal Court said Thursday.
The 23-year-old prince, second in line to the throne after his older sister Crown Princess Victoria, will move to a flat opposite the Royal Castle in Stockholm's Old Town, court spokeswoman Catherine Broms said.
It is not the first time the prince will live on his own. While training as a naval officer in Karlskrona, 400 kilometers (250 miles) south of Stockholm, he lived in several apartments.
Broms said she did not know when he will move. "It will be sometime during the spring," she said.
The prince's girlfriend, Emma Pernald, likely will not move in with the prince, Broms said. She lives in a flat in another part of the city.
Earlier this year, the prince's other sister, 20-year-old Princess Madeleine, said she also wanted to live on her own. She is the youngest of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia's three children, and her parents said they wanted to keep her home a little longer.
Carl Philip will study graphic design in the spring.

Yes, that picture was taken at the birthday party of Agnetha Kreuger. She´s the mother of Crownprincess Victorias best friend Caroline and one of queen Silvias best friends.
All guest were given a camera and somehow one camera was "stolen" and the pictures released to the public... The royal family was very upset about this...

Carl Philips flickvän Emma Pernald skadades svårt vid en olycka på Sandhamn i Stockholms skärgård.
När hon hoppade från bryggan till kungens båt ramlade hon och fick en stålvajer över ögat.
Utan syn på ena ögat fördes hon tillsammans med prinsen i ambulanshelikopter till Karolinska sjukhuset.
- Hon slog i huvudet ganska rejält och drabbades av en hjärnskakning, säger hennes mamma Pamela Pernald till Expressen.
Olyckan inträffade vid lunchtid i går. Prins Carl Philip hade tillsammans med sin flickvän Emma Pernald åkt till Sandhamn med kungens havskryssare Ancylus II av Lovön.
Carl Philip och Emma Pernald hade precis lagt till och gick för att äta på Sandhamns Seglarhotell. Emma kom ihåg att hon hade glömt något i båten och gick tillbaka.
När hon skulle hoppa från bryggan föll hon och slog i huvudet. En stålvajer träffade henne över ögat.
Carl Philip och flera turister skyndade fram för att hjälpa Emma.
- Jag kom in till bryggan precis när det hade hänt, prinsen och hans sällskap var där. Min son berättade att det var Emma som var skadad, berättar ett ögonvittne.
Läkare konstaterade att hon hade tappat synen på ena ögat och var svårt illamående. En ambulanshelikopter tillkallades.
- De fick hjälpa henne in i helikoptern, säger en seglare.
Prins Carl Philip följde med sin flickvän i helikoptern till Karolinska sjukhuset i Solna. Där konstaterade neurologläkare att hon drabbats av en hjärnskakning.
Sent i går kväll kunde Emma Pernald ringa sin mamma Pamela Pernald.
- Hon mådde inte bra, och var rejält trött. Men hon hade fått tillbaka synen. Nu måste hon vila ut, säger Pamela Pernald.
Hovets informationschef Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg:
- Emma Pernald mår efter omständigheterna bra.
Emma Pernald fick i går lämna sjukhuset och vilade i natt ut i sin bostad i centrala Stockholm.
Emma got hurt in a boat accident she fell when she was going of the boat that Carl Philip has load from his father. She was rushed to the hospital with a helicopter.
She could go home later that night but she did not feel well at all her mother told the paper, also the court said that she did not feel good but she is now resting in her home in Stockholm.
