Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia on life as a family of four


Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia are loving the 'chaos' that comes with parenting two boys. When they aren't being full-time parents to sons Alexander, 1, and two-month-old Gabriel, the couple is busy maintaining their hectic royal schedule.

“We try to create as much family time as possible in the evenings, with bathing and getting a routine,” Sofia said in a new interview with Kupé magazine. “But ask me again in a few months.” She continued: “We have had small glimpses that it’s tougher with two. But there is also twice as much love.”

The royal couple, who tied the knot in 2015, welcomed their second son, Prince Gabriel, in late August. Sofia, 32, noted that with two little ones under the age of two there are a lot of "diaper changes and sleepless nights.”

Sofia also expressed her anxiety over her children's well-being later in life. “We are worried about similar things that other parents do such as bullying and exclusion,” said the royal, who along with her husband created an anti-bullying campaign through their foundation.


Sofia added, “That is what we are currently working on in our foundation. We want our children to find a place in life where they feel safe and we as parents will do our best to create such a place.”
