Real job? So far Carl Philip wasn´t thrown into the world of business and competition. He got educated as graphic designer...but now he is in the military again, so I´m personally not sure, if he aims a real career as graphic designer.
Carl Philip is puzzling me a little, as I had always thought, he is really seeking for a private "normal" life. But as things are now, I´m setting onto a career in the RF.
I guess he would perform duties in/for the military, every now and then he would do some graphic design projects for charities (like his mother´s childhood foundation) and apart from that he would serve some other duties (mostly related to sports) and would maybe get an own foundation. He (and his wife) would get an apanage from the state.
The same I´m seeing for Madeleine. Her main focus would be on charity.
Royal careers of siblings like many others and I´m not seeing anything special in it.
I´m more impressed by Royals, who worked as teacher like Infanta Elena, who are/were working for banks like Prince Constantijn or Prince Johan Friso or who are working as farmers like Prince Joachim.
And if one aims as young Royal for a career in the RF, I´m more impressed by some stays abroad, supporting developmental aid as Harry did, than by long military careers (but that´s a personal thing, as I´m not overly fond by the military)
One also shouldn´t forget, that Prince Harry is 5 years younger than Carl Philip and has plenty of time to get some education.
Surely Carl Philip has also still a lot of time to find his place...but seeing how little duties, he is performing and how he is doing one education following an other, internships, and military training, I´m having my doubts. But I´m always open for being disabused
I was very impressed by his photo exhibition in Uppsala...and him participating in the Linné movie was surely very demanding. But it was also just a short time project and I´m not seeing, what he wants to do with this...if he wants to photograph on a regular base...or not. To summarise a long post: to me it seems CP is just doing things, he is interested in and has no thread and therefore I can´t cheer him and see a tribute to his parents...
What I´m though admiring him for is
-that he seems to have a certain talent in arts, he could make a lot out of.
-and that he isn´t grabbing all the nice things, his position would offer. He could surely have half of the Stureplan ppl in his bed, but has a stable relationship of 8 years...
