He can do that after the military exercise. Especially when this exercise is still in his official royal calender. He shouldn't go car racing if he officially is on a military ship to hunt submarines. It's simply not okay.

I know, and I am sure they will spend plenty of time together afterwards.
I share your view and wonder who gave him permission (I assume he has been given permission) and why.
I hope it is a one-time gaffe and that he learns from it.

Both great photos! Clearly, the family is OK with this day of competition and supports CP.

I think that it has been clear from the beginning, that Carl Philip is at the exercise as a royal and not as a "normal" reserve officer. He doesn't need any permissions. This is just a good PR since he hasn't done much royal duties lately but concentrated on his designs with the launch of jackets and textiles. So photos of the prince at the deck of a military ship came in a good time.

Expressen has an article which tells that Sofia was in Solvalla with her father Erik and sister Lina and Sara. And the king was there with Patrick Sommerlath and king's friend Noppe Lewenhaupt.

In my exes it has only been good PR until the point where he skips the exercise to have a little fun with his hobby. This is not a good example for making a decision to do something and then holding on to it as long as it lasts. I mean, this isn't an exercise somewhere far away that lasts for month. We are talking about two little weeks. Good PR would have been to really stay there for those two weeks like everyone else. Especially after he tells in his interview that he is just one of the gang there and not a prince.

Sorry, I'm a big supporter of Carl Philip, but this I simple can't excuse or explain away. This has simply not been a smart move of him. If he knew from the beginning he wouldn't be able to attend at the exercise (that should polish up his official role as a prince) he should have attended at all. This "Look how I do important things but only until it's not colliding with my hobby" is laughable. Especially if it's in is official royal calender.

This is quite simply called: *Having your cake and eating it too*, he looks like he wants everyone to think he is a military man and yet when it comes down to doing the job, he runs and plays with his toys...now what does that remind a person of..........someone with no sense of obligation or responsibility, just let the peasants do the job while he sits back and does nothing....not a supporter of people that are phonies.

Yep, in this case I agree with you. Absolutely no smart move of him.

Hmm, I see your point but in my eyes it is either you are in or you are not.
Perhaps too black and white, but then so be it.
On the other hand, I just remembered this post:
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1695453. I suppose this weekend was that "possible short break".

The court press department did say "subject to any possible short break", as I remembered later, so perhaps he is fallen over harder than necessary.
And it was two days, the weekend, not an entire week or a midweek.
Looking at the excercise it does not give off a good message but in hindsight it did not come totally unexpected.
I would say "forgive" and forget, as people generally tend to do

Forgive and forget what? He does not take his responsibilities seriously at all......I just don't understand how some people can be so blind to anyone on this earth with that type of position that does nothing to earn it. It is so like many people here in the US who expect the government to pay everything for them because of what their heritage is and who they are.............life isn't about free rides, at least not in my world.

Here is another photo from Instagram which shows Madeleine, Leonore, Sofia, Carl Philip, and I am guess that holding Leonore is Karini a co-worker from Childhood and one of Madeleine's close friends.

Karini is Karini Gustafson-Teixeira, the wife of Pedro Teixeira. Some swedish magazine wrote earlier that Pedro is Chris' friend. They were invited to Madeleine's and Chris wedding. At least that time they were married.

Yes. Madeleine wrote that they were close friends on her Facebook blog post sharing Karini's blogpost for Thank You TBT this week. She was also the only USA Childhood worker (besides for the head) invited to the wedding. They have also been seen hanging out in New York City before. Karini has twin sons a few months older than Leonore.

From Volvo Polestar's press release before the last races of the season in Mantorp Park:
Prince Carl Philip has turned around a tough season start to scoring points in the last seven races, as well as securing personal best with sixth postion.
”We have definitely made progress and I am glad with that. Mantorp Park is a track that I have scored strongly on in the past, so I hope to finish the season on a high,” said Bernadotte.

The last races of this STCC-season are tomorrow at the Mantorp Park race track.
Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte is going to start from 12th position on the grid for both races, a position he is not pleased with.
”I didn’t get it right this time. We are going to go through the data ahead of tomorrow and see if we can improve something,” said Bernadotte.
Thed Björk takes one step closer to STCC title after qualifying

Carl Philip drove off the track at the same place as yesterday at the first race, and retired from the race.
