While I'm very happy for the couple I did not see this coming. I thought that they'd turned off the warm water as the saying goes.

Wow, congratulations to them! A lot of pregnancies eventuating throughout this pandemic! By the way, wasn't it announced that Sofia had contracted the virus only a little while ago?

She must have been worried when she contracted the virus, but thankfully it doesn't seem to have any effect on pregnancy. Another royal baby!

So she was pregnant when she got Covid. Hopefully no effects on the expected child.

Somehow not surprised as I don't think they're done yet. I guess will be another boy.

Congratulations to the couple and family

Surprised they waited so long. She is around 5 1/2 months pregnant. I guess with the pandemic we don't see them as much so easier to hide.

I wasn't expecting another baby. I thought the king made the announcement about grandkid titles likely as they were all done having them.

This baby is the first new arrival in the swedish royal family since the title-decision. I wonder which protocol will happen when the birth of the third child of Carl Philip and Sofia is born. Will there be still a Te Deum? How will the names be announced? Will the christening take place without live coverage?

The baby will likely get the same treatment as his siblings and cousins did. With covid maybe smaller christening of course. Just born with the current title unlike his or her siblings.

Any pairing down of ceremony and possibly duchy will likely wait for the next generation.

Woooow!

Congratulations to parents, big brothers and grandparents!

Late announcement in fact, but I am not as surprised as with Zara and Mike because I was not sure they were done (Sofia is younger than Zara, AFAIK didn't have miscarriages and both she and her Carl-Philipp have two siblings each).
The baby will be only "Duke/Duchess of (province of Sweden), not HRH.

I hope for a girl!

wow, i wasn't expecting it but it looks like CP&S are very doting parents and enjoy that role so not surprising. we saw them last in late october in their visit to their duchy and sofia wasn't showing back then. she may have been a 4/5 or so months pregnant given the dates.

it is a bit worrying that sofia caught COVID during the first trimester of pregnancy.

I thought everything in the Swedish Royal Family has come to a standstill. But then today, this piece of news has completely blown my mind. Most Sincere Congratulations to the Prince Couple!
I hope that the third child will be a Princess.

That is wonderful news ! I hope the baby is going well after Princess Sofia had Covid during her first months of pregnancy. Princess Sofia has impressed me a lot during the Covid crisis and I am happy to learn she will become once more a mother.
