Charles and Sofia of Sweden present their third child: with the first photo of the Royal Baby, they also reveal his name
Sofia of Sweden is a mother for the third time
Just a few days ago, Charles and Sofia of Sweden became parents again: the announcement of the birth of their third child had moved everyone. But only in the past few hours the Royal Family wanted to share the first photo of the newcomer, at the same time revealing the name chosen for the child.
The sweet portrait, published on the Instagram profile of the Crown, sees the Prince Julian of Sweden lying in his cradle and immersed in white covers, with his eyes wide open to admire the world in these very first days of his life. The photo, as can be seen from the caption, was taken by Prince Charles: an experienced photographer (just like Kate Middleton), he has always loved immortalizing his splendid family in beautiful images that, only from time to time, are shared publicly. This is one of those occasions, the moment in which the Royal Family wanted to show the world the latest born.
Carlo and Sofia did not wait long before publishing the first photo of the baby, and at the same time they also revealed the name: Julian Herbert Folke. The little boy was in fact born last Friday, March 26, 2021 at the Danderyd Hospital in Stockholm, the same where his older brothers came into the world. The Swedish Royal Family welcomed their third child a few years after Alexander, born in 2016, and Gabriel, who arrived the following year. The arrival of the baby was highly anticipated, especially since Princess Sofia's pregnancy had been revealed shortly after the news of her positivity to Covid, and had aroused great concern among the subjects.
Now that the baby is born, however, the joy is great. The announcement of his full name, as well as his title (Duke of Halland), came through an official press release from King Carl Gustav. The parents have chosen a rather original name for their third child, without renouncing the tradition: if Julian does not in fact belong to the Royal House, Herbert belongs to Sofia's maternal grandfather while Folke is one of the names of the King himself. Prince Julian is also seventh in line of succession to the Swedish throne. Before him there are his aunt Vittoria and her two children, father Carlo and his little brothers Alexander and Gabriel.
These first months of 2021 saw the birth of three Royal Babies: on February 9, little August, eldest son of Princess Eugenie of York, was born, while a few days ago the hasty Lucas, third son of Zara Tindall, also arrived.
