YouTube gave me this. He was a very cute little kid. He and Christina seem to have been like two peas in a pod.

Was he ever Kronprins or just always Arve/Hereditary?

King Carl Gustav became kronprins in 1950 when his grandfather ascended the throne.

I forgot Gustav V was alive at the time. Darn these immortal Bernadotte men! So his grandfather was kronprins during this! I had this vague sense that Gustav Adolf senior was already the king, and they were calling CG "Arveprins" because he wasn't the son of the king, the way only the monarch's eldest son can be Duke of Cornwall in the UK. Thank you for fixing the picture.

He was so happy here. It's a shame getting older and dealing with things turned him less confident and cheerful.

It's nice to see that connection between Christina and Carl Gustaf from a very young age. Of course they are closest in age, so while people talk about the Haga princesses, I wouldn't be surprised if Christina was always closer to her younger brother than her older sisters.

Age at CG's birth:
Margaretha: 11 1/2 yrs
Birgitta: 9 1/4 yrs
Désirée: 8 yrs
Christina: 2 3/4 yrs

Developmentally speaking, it would have been much easier for Christina to play with him anyway than with her substantially-older sisters, so...you are getting a lot of cake and flowers shoved in your face, CG.

It's also good that they had each other in their weird and sad childhood (their older sisters were dealing with it from a significantly different angle).

And it's probably not a coincidence that Silvia is about Christina's age — it's obviously how he felt best and safest.

Wow...
I had never realized that the age gap between Desirée and Christina was that big.
