Carl Philip is a late bloomer and they often bloom the best.

I very much agree Skippy.

Maybe his marriage and(eventual) parenthood will have that kind of effect on him.

My oppinion of Carl Philip is that he is kind and goodhearted person. Behaves politely. Shy. Sporty. Not very ambitious. Only two girlfriends and long relationships. I would easily believe he will be very much a family man.

About all male princes and ofter rich young males, Carl Philip has looked out to be very ordinary guy, not any big party animal or playboy as some have been writing in this post.

Only negative thing what I have in my vision is that it seems to have taken long time for him to find what he wants from life. Late bloomer would be a good word to use.

Late t the game, my opinion of CP is he appears quite shallow. He is definitely the best looking Prince in Europe but he doesn't appear to do much of value. He was probably spoiled and indulged by his parents because of what the govt did to him. He may be one of the least impressive royals but at least he doesn't appear mean hearted like some spoiled rich people.

I agree, I think he was spoilt especially by his father because - from CG's perspective - he was robbed of the throne and had to step aside for his sister.
IMO CP has never shown any ambition or desire to set himself free, work on a serious career on his own (he is not really needed for the crown) - his work as designer is shady (rumours of copying), he does car racing but usually crashes out, an expensive hobby.
Unthinkable eg in the Netherlands, where both princes have/had a serious career, making their own living instead of tagging along doing a bit here and there, looking bored.

Parenthood and married life will do good. We have seen it with almost all princes. It matures them and public perspective changes too. In my eyes Prince Carl Philip is a goodnatured and sympathic man who lets his sister Victoria have the floodlights.
