Haha! I watched the game as well and saw the sequence with Charlene, but I was absolutely not able to say in that few seconds, whether she sat next to Carl Philip or Orlando Bloom

I've got to ask a question: Is PCP ever going to grow up? This 31 year old man does nothing but play whether it's water skiing, racing cars, attending the World Cup or going on holiday. He seems to have no real direction or responsibilities. Someone in his privliged position should really try contributing more to society.

Well studies show that men are not fully mature until the age of 40. Which seems to be true.
Looks like he's got about 9 more years to go.

Iīve got to answer a question: Whatīs wrong with somebody doing waterski while on his holidays? While other people have their hobbys, too, heīs doing his race car thing (though Iīve to admit, itīs a pretty unusual "hobby") - commoners use to spend a lot of their free time with their hobbys (when you do a certain sporting activity, you do do this at least once or twice a week, too!) as well.
I think thereīs very little attention upon his official duties as to the media a water skiing or race car driving prince is much more interesting than one who unveils plaques or clips ribbons. Besides that he has a normal job as a designer - and the results of that are regularly presented in public.

Well at the moment the royals, all of them around Europe are on holiday. So there is nothing wrong with him water skiing.
Racing cars are his hobby, every royal has a hobby and his parents obviously don't mind the hobby, most races take place at weekends which wouldn't affect his work.
Lots of royals were at the World Cup, he attended one match, whereas the Crown Prince of the Netherlands attended 3 or 4.
When was the last time he was on holiday? He is with his parents and sister at the moment.
If he has nothing to do that is probably not his fault.

Sorry but why should he have to think about his future? He basically knows what he has to do for the rest of his life, he has to be royal and live up to his Princely title. He might not be doing it now, but he's probably learning.
He's what 31 yeah? He's had a good education, he's done military service, he has a passion for designing and he's done this on top of the royal duties he has had to do.

Nothings wrong with a 31 year old man water skiing or vacationing, but I think the issue that some people have with Carl Philip is that it seems as if he's not doing anything at all. Kind of like he's a (I hate to say this) a royal bum. Usually, men at that age, are serious about their jobs, their lives, etc. Yes men at that age ski, go clubbing, but sometimes it seems like thats all CP wants to do. He's not a kid anymore, he's not 21 and I too think he needs more focus. I think CP is still in school also. Sometimes I think he uses school as a diversion so he doesn't have to own up to what he needs to do. I do think in a way he's immature. But I do think he will mature in his own way. Give him some time. He will find purpose in being a prince.

I don't think that he is a royal bum...he has a job as a designer perhaps that is why he hasn't been seen so much in royal functions nor does he carries too many royal duties...didn't I read somewhere that he doesn't like to be in the spotlight???maybe he does things but we are just not aware of....then, we can't judge him just because of the pictures..photographers usually capture these shots because they are public ones while his work and how he comes up with his designs are done in private

Exactly. No one's saying he can't have fun or vacation or have hobbies but it seems that ALL he does is play. Prince William and Prince Harry have fun, but they also have busy military careers and do lots of charity work whereas CP just seems to wander aimlessly most of the time playing around. Considering the Swedish people pay for his luxurious lifestyle and hobbies and holidays, he could at least do more charitiable things in return. I also think he uses school as a diversion - he's what we would here in America call a "professional student" (someone who keeps going to school to avoid having to figure out what they want to do for a career).

Even if he doesn't know what he wants to do with his life, he can certainly find ways to occupy is time usefully. I think CP needs some more royal duties and needs to get involved in some humanitarian and charity causes instead of just the occasional ribbon-cutting appearance here and there.

But Carl-Philip has done military service, a lot of it in fact.

Why "has to be Royal"?
If he doesnīt like the spotlight, he can follow a job and earn his money self.
Happened before.
As it is now, itīs definitely not working for the future.
Many Swedes are already now angry and it would get worse, if an 40 year old prince would be still in school and on perma-vacation.


While royalcourt.se isnīt publishing all CHILDHOOD-related duties, there is no secret schedule for the prince.
At least I donīt remember many blog entries or small town newspaper articles proving otherwise.
He is doing little and isnīt comfortable doing the little.
Though I liked his role at the wedding.
Maybe he would need someone, who does need his "help" (like Daniel at the wedding or his sister Anna, who was his dinner partner)

Well he's been a royal for 31 years, and shows no signs of wanting to give it up. If he wants to forgo his title, his priveliges and live a normal life that's fine, but he shows no signs of wanting to do that, so for me he has to be royal for the rest of his life.
If Swedes are angry and CP not working, have they said something about it?

Like you say he is uncomfortable doing little as his royal as Prince, which isn't his fault, maybe his parents think he can't handle royal life, so give him very little to do. Which is not his fault.

Well, he could be a farmer and designer. He has the money to "bridge" bad times.
Sooner or later he has to decide. Or the court must develop an other handling of the apanage.
Who do you mean with "they"?
The court or the people?

It would be still partly his fault, because he is an adult and should and can make decision, like all of us.

Yeah he could be a farmer or a designer, I see designer as the more likely. But he can still be a designer and be a royal at the same time.

If you mean from this part of my post

In theory he could. But you know, how it went for your Prince Edward.
Little duties + own design brand promoted by coverage in big newspapers & TV channels + the non-transparent apanage of the king is IMO a mix, that wonīt work.

Of course they are voicing their opinion. And the court has to face some kind of "snow ball effect", because these days people can voice their opinions on big public platforms easily. And thatīs what they do.
Big problem for the court, but also big chance.

Yeah but there is a major difference between how the royal family are percieved in the UK, and how they are in Sweden.
Being a designer, which is what CP will do is totally different to setting up your own TV company and filming your own family when you shouldn't.
Who says he's going to have little duties, her does half and half, and recieves the right amount of money for what he is doing, then what is the problem?

Okay, if the swedish people have said something, when have they said it? Are there any links to articles that say they have complained?
