Prince Alexander: Cute new picture

Prince Alexander celebrates his eighth birthday, on April 19, 2024. While Prince Carl Philip fulfills his official duties and participates in a board meeting at the royal palace, Princess Sofia remains at home to commence the day with Alexander.

The day promises to be brimming with cake, presents, and a private family gathering at Villa Solbacken. Alongside Alexander, his siblings Prince Gabriel (6) and Prince Julian (3) are undoubtedly eagerly anticipating the festivities.

As is customary, the Swedish royal family shared a photo of the birthday boy on Instagram. Prince Alexander cuts a handsome figure in his crisp white shirt, his long brown hair neatly brushed. With a bright smile for the camera, it's remarkable to see how quickly he's grown up and how mature he appears already!
