I completely follow your logic Duc_et_Pair, I guess it would depend on the normal naming customs in Sweden. If they normally revert back to their own name (which I seem to remember from her sister's divorce), I see no reason why that would be different for someone who was previously membered to a member of the royal house.

The UK seems one of probably a few exceptions where people tend to keep their married name even after a divorce, which custom is subsequently also applied in the nobility and royal family.

For what it is worth, King Carl XVI Gustaf's opinion in 1977 was that the husband of a queen regnant should retain the title of prince after a divorce. Interesting, he also believed that issues of titles and membership of the Royal House should be decided in accordance with not only Swedish practice but European princely law as well.

Personally, I was under the impression that divorcées retained their married names more often than not (possibly because the ex-wives of the various non-royal Bernadottes appear to prefer to keep the name, as did Prince Daniel's sister), but I have not looked at any statistics.
