Prince Carl Philip, Current Events Part 4: November 2014 -

If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
It seems the military visits and ceremonies of the royal house are being assigned to (the King and) Prince Carl Philip. Has that always been the case, and is it likely to continue into the next reign?

Yes, Carl Philip is an Officer, a Major. Victoria didn't do any military training since that wasn't open to women at the time.

Afer the the current King, the Monarch will no longer be the head of the military (well he isn't now either but he's kept some functions).

I suppose C-P will go on doing things like honoring veterans and other more ceremonial stuff. He's much appreciated in those quarters.

Carl Philip spoke at the 75th anniversary meeting of Hushållssällskapet (The Rural Economy and Agricultural Societies). He is the Society's patron.

The Rural Economy and Agricultural Societies is a modern and vibrant body of knowledge transfer with history extending all the way back to 1791. At that time agriculture was fundamental for the survival and prosperity of Sweden and its people. As famine was reality back then, there was immediate demand for knowledge transfer and research and development in order to secure food production.
The Rural Economy and Agricultural Societies is a national body made up by 15 independent Rural Economy and Agricultural Societies.
