Well, I didnt get braces until I was 21. The reason I didnt get them earlier, was because there was nothing wrong with my teeth, so I didnt really NEED them. It was all cosmetic. Being in a wedding, I didnt want my teeth to be crooked for the pictures, so I wore braces for a year.

The apple thing is weird, though. I wasnt allowed to eat an apple either, unless it was already off the cork. What really killed me was not being able to eat swedish fish. They're my weakness.

Prince Carl Philip lives in his own apartment at Slottsbacken 2, in a building just next to the Royal Palace of Stockholm. The building, owned by the Royal Court at the disposal of the King and managed by The National Property Board, hosts a total of 24 apartments, and many employees of the Court lives there. It is said that they are smaller apartments, around 3-4 rooms.

Maybe, I don't think we really know this yet. There isn't much precedence to go on before the royal children, because then one would have to look back on the days of the old Court and system, and back then it was all so different. But maybe Carl Philip and Madeleine could have some sort of job tasks, maybe not a normal full time job, but taking on assignments to do things or so.

We will have to wait and see, I would say it's up to them to decide their own futures.

Even though it's two different monarchies, the future of the Swedish monarchy will probably be most like something the Spanish monarchy has now.
The King and Queen and Felipe and Letizia carry out the majority of the royal duties.
The Infantas and their husbands all have jobs of their own but assist with an occasional event on their own or with the rest of the family.
In Sweden the King and Queen, Victoria and her husband will carry out the majority of the royal duties.
Carl Philip and Madeleine and their spouses will get to have their own jobs in whatever field they choose but will perform some royal duties with their spouses or on their own and sometimes with the rest of the family like on the Swedish National Day.
That seems like the most logical course of action in the coming years.

I think it is getting more normal these days. In the dutch royal family for example the two youngest sons of the queen and their wives have normal jobs, as have all the sons and daughter-in-laws of princess Margriet. In belgium Princess Claire continues working. Most of the luxembourg grand ducal family have a job, the duke of gloucester is an architect etc.

So probably prince Carl-Philip will have a normal job after he finishes his school. I do not believe the swedish royals are exceptionally wealthy and most money will probably be stuck in intangible goods and investments (so not that much left to spend), which is th case with most old-money families.
Is Emma (or Daniel/Jonas) from a rich family btw? From what kind of family/background ar they anyway?

Yes this sounds logical - excellent answer. Especially now that monarchies are getting so big!!!! It'll be good 2c PM & PC get good jobs etc. But i dunno, it'll b hard 4them 2work in any ordinary office because of who they are tho. The future and what to do with them i guess is still open.

I know in England there is a big and ongoing debate about the monarchy and it's future. In terms of the royals of the brother and sisters of the monarch. No1 quite knows - for instance what to do with PH.

I think in their own countries it's hard for a royal to have a 'normal' life, unless they move abroad.

But we'll c about PC's future. I've read in these forums that he likes drawing etc so mayb he could do something like that. Or take up motor racing professionally.

Announcement from the TRF Team:

In an effort to conserve bandwidth, the TRF Team is making some changes to how News and Picture threads are being organized, which you may have noticed is already being made in some forums.

From this point forward, please be aware that the only images that will be allowed to be attached directly to the forum will be those of current activities of the royals, which can be posted in the Current Events threads.

Instead of posting a dozen or more pictures, please try to select a few pictures that best describe the event/occasion. Aim to conserve. Think quality not quantity.

If you wish to post pictures of events that happened a few years ago or older images of various royals, please do so in the Picture threads via a private image hosting account such as Photobucket or Imageshack.

Please note that older images which are attached directly to the forum are subject to removal by an Administrator or SuperModerator without notice to the member.

Thank you for your co-operation on this matter so that we can all continue to enjoy images of our favourite royals.

The TRF Team

Nice to see Carl Philip starting to take on more responsibilitys

Here is a stroy from db that they have taken from Expressen.

Sept the 10 Carl Philip and his friend Jesper Eriksson arranged a party at Tullgarns castle in Sörmland. 150 people was present including his sisters with boyfriends. Expressen reports alot of alcohol was consumed and in the middle of the night Carl Philip and his friends decide to slide on serving trays down the stairs . Carl Philip and his tray crashed and he hurt his arm. After the accident CP and Emma went to bed. The day after when he was giving a brunch his arm hurt so much that he had to see a doctor. His arm hurt for some days, but he took part in a hunt in Uppland the next week says a source. The Press woman, Ann-Crisitn Jernberg confirms to the paper there was a party but she has not heared anything about sliding down the stairs on serving trays or that the Princes got hurt
