Apparently Prince Carl-Philip has inherited a farm in Källviken:

I don't know by whom though. The farm is being renovated.

It was now explained on the SRMB that the farm was left to the Prince by one Bertil Jonsen, who recently died childless at age 82. A former naval officer who was a friend of King Carl Gustav.

Will be interesting to see if Carl-Philip and Emma will live there. I could very well think that they will, it´s a very beautiful place and it´s quite close to Stockholm and also to Tullgarn Castle

Expressen Extra wrote about Carl Philip inheriting Ökenäs in this week's issue, Stoppa pressarna quotes it:
After Bertil Jonsén's dead his will from March 21 1996 was found. It said clearly that the property, in addition to the farm Ökenäs included the shares, art and a condominium in Lidingö, would accrue to his "shipmate" Prince Carl Philip. Carl Philip and Jonsén met at the king's boat in the 1990's.
The information from the will created both confusion and anger with a family who stood Jonsén very close and were the ones who took care of him during the end of his life he spent in the apartment on Lidingö. They had been convinced that the properties would be given to them and were therefore disconcerted when they not received a penny of the more than 18 million SEK. And as the testament was written as early as the mid-1990s, they hoped that newer versions would be found.
But once again they were disappointed - no other wills were found. And it was lucky that Prince Carl Philip and Sofia can most likely escape to the house every time they get tired of Stockholm intense pulse.

I can understand that that other family isn't thrilled, but it seems all fair-and-square, Mr.Jonsen probably liked the prince very well to leave him an entire house..
