On the occasion of his birthday, the Prince of Sweden Carl Philip decided to make his Instagram profile open to the public. The opportunity for many users of the social network to learn more about this unrecognized royal family.

One month after Prince Harry's high-profile marriage with Meghan Markle, another European prince is catching the eye. Much less well known than his British counterpart, Crown Prince Carl Philip of Sweden, fourth in the line of succession of the Scandinavian kingdom, yet begins to make him talk about the Internet and more specifically on the social network specialized in photography, Instagram.

Since his birthday on May 13th, the 39-year-old Swedish prince and his wife, Sofia Hellqvist, have been posting pictures of their two young children on the photo-sharing platform.

In order to formalize their arrival on Instagram, the complicit duo wrote in comment of their first public release: "Welcome to our official Instagram account. As you can see, we have already posted photos for some time to give you an overview of our work, the tasks we do and especially the questions that fascinate us. We hope you want to follow us! "

The call was undoubtedly heard since their account already accounts for more than 80,000 subscribers only hours after opening to the public.

In a month, the account attracts almost 150,000 subscribers with photos representing him with the family or in more formal situations.

The little royal family actually had this account for over a year but it had remained so far private. The event allowed Swedes and the world to discover unpublished photos of the couple's two-year-old and eight-month-old children.
