Prince Gabriel was born on 31 August 2017 at Danderyd Hospital in Danderyd, Sweden. The Prince's full name is Gabriel Carl Walther and substantive title is Duke of Dalarna, which was announced by his grandfather King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden on 4 September 2017.[2] A Te Deum service took place on 4 September 2017, to honour and celebrate the birth of Prince Gabriel.[3]

Prince Gabriel was christened on 1 December 2017 at the Chapel of the Drottningholm Palace.

Titles, styles and honours[edit]

Titles and styles[edit]

Gabriel was initially styled His Royal Highness Prince Gabriel, Duke of Dalarna.[5][6] On 7 October 2019 the king issued a statement rescinding the style Royal Highness and removing Gabriel from the royal house in an effort to more strictly associate Swedish royalty to the office of the head of state; he is still to be styled as a prince and duke and remains in the line of succession to the throne.[7][8][9]

Honours[edit]

  •  Sweden: Knight of the Royal Order of the Seraphim[10]
