    • The Head of State and his/her spouse
    • Title: HM King, HM Queen, HRH Prince (Prince Consort)
      (e.g. Frederik I is known as HRH Prince Frederik of Sweden before 1720)
  2. The Crown Prince/Princess
    • The first in line to the Swedish throne who is also an heir apparent, and his/her spouse
      (e.g. Crown Princess Victoria) (Prince Bertil was first in line in 1973, but was never a Crown Prince)

  3. The heir to the apparent to the heir apparent and his/her heir, etc. and their spouses
    • Those whose position in line to the throne cannot be displaced and their spouses
      (e.g. Prince Gustaf Adolf and Princess Estelle)
    • Title: HRH Prince, HRH Princess
  4. The siblings (born after 1977) / brothers (born before 1977) of Groups 1-3 members, and their spouses

    • Title: HRH Prince, HRH Princess

    (e.g. Prince Lennart before 1932, Princess Leonore, Prince Alexander)
    • Title: Prince, Princess (had HRH title before 2019)

    • No Swedish titles
Groups 1-5 constitute the Royal House, Groups 1-4 and 6 has succession rights while Groups 1-8 constitute the Royal Family, provided that they are Swedish citizens. (Hence Christopher O'Neill, despite being the spouse of Princess Madeleine, is NEITHER a Prince of Sweden, NOR the Duke of Hälsingland and Gästrikland)
