The design of the monogram is very artistic.

Monogram is quite different but probably their modern taste. DoM, I agree

The monogram just looks to busy and a bit confusing IMO.

Designers should have worked more on monogram.

Is this the official monogram of P.C-P himself?
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...Sweden.svg.png

if so, i can see what they tried to do with the S syllable, but C and P on their own are pretty much filling enough for one monogram, so i can imagine it wasn't easy to come up with a joint variety

For top 3 of worst monograms could i suggest the one of Edward (earl of Wessex) and wife Sophie as posted today in the royal cyphers (etc) thread... that one's not good (but at least it managed to let the letter S *not* like a snake )

(if this *is* their official one, then ouch...)

Not a fan of this at all. As others have said, it's too busy and cluttered.

Yes that is Carl Philip's monogram. It is very easy to from where the inspiration for the new one comes.

To be honest, I like the joint monogram. It doesn't look like snakes to me. It looks more like a bunch of flowers to me. I especially like how the S and the P flow together. This really makes them joint together.

I agree, it is a classic monogram. This is the interwined emblem of William III of Nassau, Prince of Orange and his spouse Mary II Stuart, both King and Queen of Great Britain.

I think the new monogram is fine - keeping with traditional styling, there is little else one can do with C P and S intertwined.

I much prefer their joint monogram to CP's one. Yes, it's a bit more cluttered (but really though, CP's monogram was cluttered to begin with because they (whoever is in charge of the individual monograms – CG or the individual royals themselves?) inverted the letters rather than just making it one C and one P – if anything, adding the double S's has made it nicer looking IMO) but it looks more finished, so to speak, than CP's does. I also think the fact that it's black makes me like it more. It looks way more elegant than CP's blue one. Is it supposed to be black? Or was that just for the announcement?

The blue one posted above is a Wikipedia version, and not the official one. However the Royal Court uses the monograms in different colors, like, black, gold and blue.

A monogram often is in a different colour (blue, red) to differentiate from the black used in a letter. There are also colourless ones: the Dutch Royal House uses paper with a colourless monogram pressed into it (relief). Expensive, but stylish.

The mirror imaging of the letters and the S style in their monogram can be found elsewhere in the family:
H.M. Queen Silvia - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]
H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]
The crown may not be traditional - but it is from his monogram.

Thanks! (and also thanks, Kingen, for the link to all the monograms). I'm glad to hear that the blue is not standard because that did nothing good for CP's monogram

I like the joint monogram. It is "busy", but the designers can only work with what they are given, and CP having a double-barrelled name to start was going to set a challenge for them. I think they did it well. I like the way they've joined the "S" in to combine the initials into one monogram.

I have to say I don't like the monogram: it is too much messy and you can barely distinguish the initials... Not particulary flattering IMO.
