Prince Alexander from Sweden is six years old! Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip celebrated the sixth birthday of their firstborn with a new photo on their personal Instagram account on Tuesday, April 19.
“Today our lively and wonderful Alexander turns 6 years old ❤”, says the caption.
At a birthday party last year, Sofia and Carl Philip described Alexander as “charming, curious and mischievous.”
Prince Alexander, born in 2016, is the eldest child of the royal couple. Sofia and Carl Philip are also parents of sons Prince Gabrielfour and Prince Julianwho turned one year old last month.
While Prince Alexander is fifth in line to the Swedish throne, he is not a member of the royal family. 2019, King Carl XVI Gustav removed his son Prince Carl Philip and his daughter Princess Madeleine‘s children of the royal house.
Following the news at the time, Sofia and Carl Philip posted a message on Instagram saying, “We are so positive about this as Alexander and Gabriel will have freer choices in life. They will retain their princely titles and their duchies of Södermanland and Dalarna, which we cherish and are proud of.”
The royal couple added: “Our family has strong ties to both landscapes and we continue our involvement there. We will continue to focus on matters of the heart and commitment. We will continue to support the King and Crown Princess – our future Head of State – and to participate in the activities of the royal family in the way we wish.”
