Every year Prince Carl Philip, along with other members of the Royal Family, takes part in the celebration of Sweden’s National Day, The King and The Crown Princess’ birthdays, the Opening of the Parliamentary Session and the festivities connected with the Nobel Prize.


The Prince has a number of other official duties, which are often linked to the Prince’s duchy, Värmland.

The Prince is involved in the sports movement. He has attended the Swedish Sports Gala and Swedish Rally on several occasions. In 2013, the Prince initiated the Prince Carl Philip Racing Cup that aims to help young karting talents progress within the sport.

Art and design

Prince Carl Philip has a strong interest in art, design and industrial design. Together with the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) the Prince conducts a range of visits to companies, with particular focus on the companies’ creative work. Since 2012, the Prince has run the Bernadotte & Kylberg design company alongside Oscar Kylberg.

Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia's Foundation

The Foundation was established in conjunction with the wedding of Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia on 13 June 2015. The purpose of the Foundation is to counteract bullying, with the vision that children and young people will have the right and possibility to be themselves. The work focuses on combating online hate speech and spreading awareness about dyslexia. The Prince Couple’s own involvement in these issues form the basis of the Foundation’s work.

In September 2016, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia's Foundation presented a symposium at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. The theme of the meeting was “This is how we want adults to talk to us about the internet”. Photo:
