Prince Carl Philip of Sweden at the Olympics: would you hit it?

In yesterday’s Prince Harry post, there was a request for more coverage of the Swedish royals, and so I decided to see if we had any new photos. Look at what I found! Prince Carl Philip and Prince Daniel, having a nice royal bromance at the Olympics! Carl Philip is the younger brother of Crown Princess Victoria, and Prince Daniel is Victoria’s husband. So, brothers-in-law, having a nice time together at some of the swimming and equestrian events. I’ve quickly grown to love Daniel (the one in the Austin Powers glasses) just because he seems like a genuinely lovely man, a devoted partner and husband to Victoria, and a really sweet dad to his five-month-old daughter.

As for Carl Philip… well, this boy is just fine. Carl doesn’t even need to have a personality, right? Not when he looks like this. He’s, like, movie-star handsome, isn’t he? Like a cross between Orlando Bloom, Roger Federer and Eric Bana. HOT. For the record, I’ve heard that Carl Philip is a sweetheart. Isn’t he supposed to be super-low-key? Like, he strives to live a very down-to-earth, “common” life. He’s 33 years old, and the last I heard, he was dating a model, although that news is several years old.

If you notice, Crown Princess Victoria isn’t in these photos. That’s because she backed out of making an appearance at this year’s Olympics games. Her excuse? Her daughter, Princess Estelle. Victoria just gave birth in February, and she didn’t feel ready to undertake a big trip to England with or without the baby. A royal spokesman told the Swedish papers, “She has chosen to prioritize Princess Estelle, the trip would have been too tough to make with such a small child. It is the case with all other families with small children.” So Daniel and Carl Philip got to go in Victoria’s place.

    I’m mesmerised by Daniel’s hair, it’s look immovable. All that royal gel

  4. Holl says:

    Even though Swedish men aren’t my thing (the ones I’ve met when on a trip to Stockholm were pretty hipster/metrosexual) this one piques my interest.

    Swedish royals seem more fun than their UK counterparts.

  5. Little Darling says:

    Sure I would…after a night of massive beer pong. ;)

    Too euro for my likes! I appreciate the aesthetic though.

  6. Katia says:

    Yes! The brown haired one~

  7. francesca1 says:

    Team Carl Phillip!

  8. lower-case deb says:

    the powder-blue-pale-yellow striped shirts. I WANT! such a cheery spring-summery color.

  9. L says:

    Can we just have a general royals roundup post? The royals from the netherlands are there as are the awesome Mary and Frederick from Denmark.

  10. Jacq says:

    She can’t travel with a 5-month old? Really? That isn’t the case with “all” families. I guess she’d rather sit in her palace & hold her princess baby. Must be rough! Haha

    • Dani says:

      What’s wrong with wanting to stay behind and be with your 5 month old child? Royal or not.

  11. karen says:

    Carl Philip is still dating the reality tv and former nude model. She’s a classy broad. He’s not the brightest bulb, but he’s hot.

  12. karen says:

    As for Victoria, there’s um rumors she might already be with baby #2. I hope so her and Daniel are my favorite royal couple.

  13. The Original Mia says:

    Carl Philip looks like a heavier Penn Badgley. I love Victoria & Daniel. Sweet couple.

  14. Meg says:

    a more filled out and buff penn badgley

  15. Amy says:

    He DOES look like Penn Badgley! Now we just need a picture of Harry and Carl together.

    Also didn’t Carl date the same girl for 10 years or something before dating the former reality show girl?

    • Ank says:

      Carl did date his former girl for ages, definitely in the decade-range.

      I’ve had a crush on Carl forever. Us swedes sure do represent!

  16. beyonce's bump says:

    He aiiight

  17. Tif says:

    More of him, please. Yum!

  18. kate says:

    yes he looks like Federer and ANYONE that resembles him is f**kable in my book. cross between cavill,federer,badgley.

    As a half swede, I APPROVE. Hot Harry is not the only Hot royal.

  19. Reece says:

    I don’t know…I think I like Daniel more.

  20. Sarah says:

    I might have my hot royals mixed up, but isn’t Prince Carl Phillip supposed to be a bit of an artist as well? I’m not even going to fact check that because I don’t want to spoil the image of that man painting. Naked.

  21. sapphire says:

    My previous post was munched!
    Repeatedly, I would hit it!

    And boo to NBC for not covering the dressage events.

    • marjiscott says:

      Sapphire -you can check out the streaming videos online for the Dressage on NBC page..not everyone is shown, but Stepphen Peters looks like he had the best ride, way better than than Romneys trainer, Jan whatever his name is.. By the way the Germans won it.. not surprisingly..

  22. Bobby says:

    Yikes, that chin must have its own orbit.

  23. Fue McCormick says:

    … does Carl Philip look like an older version of Penn Badgley or is it just me? I’d take him … plus I would be upgrading my current aristocratic status … Update: Oops … should have read the earlier posts regarding Penn

  24. says:

    Daniel looks like a creepy Stephen Merchant.

    Maybe it’s the glasses (although I have a pair of specs like that) but something has always made me do the shiftty eyes whenever I see him. Maybe he’s nice in person but in pictures he creeps me out. He reminds me of someone (an actor or a character) but I can’t put my finger on it …

    • Cynthia says:

      He belongs to the “Millennium” trilogy universe, we’ll see him soon next Lisbeth Salander!

  25. faye says:

    good freaking god, the one on the left looks almost identical to this one creeper I know named Zach! O_O

  26. Gwen says:

    No way. He’s still dating the tackiest girl which says a lot about him. He may be hot, but I doubt there’s more to him than that. Also he’s short.

  27. molly says:

    Carl Philip is still dating his fug model girlfriend, Sofia. I swear, I will loose all respect for that boy if he marries her. She is seriously the Swedish version of Kim Kardashian. She became famous for posing nude and then starred in a reality tv show. Ick.
    I love Dan though. He is so cute, and its really funny too because even though he has that whole nerdy look going on, the man is totally ripped! He has the body of a male model…its amazing:P I guess thats what you get when you are a former personal trainer…
