Even without his title Prince Carl Philip of Sweden would attract plenty of attention. Dynamic, self-assured and bursting with energy, the royal has seen the design business that he started in 2012 under the professional name Carl Philip Bernadotte go from strength to strength.

In fact, life couldn't be any sweeter for the son of King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia, who at 36, has also just celebrated the arrival of his first child with wife Princess Sofia, 31, on 19 April.

Becoming a father has undoubtedly given the Prince even more impetus to expand the work of Bernadotte & Kylberg, his eponymous firm with partner Oscar Kylberg, whom he met at Forsbergs in Stockholm, a college well-known for graphic design.

Their collaboration came about after the dashing royal also spent a year at the Rhode Island School of Design in the US where, entering under a pseudonym, he won a competition to create a logo for the lighthouse at Martha's Vineyard.

The partners are so in tune creatively that they describe themselves as "one person with four eyes", according to German paper Frankfurter Allgemeine. Priding themselves on offering innovation and quality, the duo produce stylish down jackets, home furnishings and glassware, often inspired by the picturesque archipelago of their home city Stockholm and the ever-changing colours of the Baltic sea.
