Since 1980, the succession order has changed, so it is Carl 16. Gustav's descendants (regardless of gender) who have inherited the throne.

The change meant that Prince Carl Philip (born 1979) had to deliver the post as successor to his older sister Crown Princess Victoria (born 1977).


2019:

Sweden's king has removed five of his grandchildren from the royal house

 
A decision by King Carl XVI Gustaf
means the children no longer have the title of royal highness and are not expected to perform official royal duties.

They will remain members of the royal family and retain their titles of dukes and duchesses.

The change has not affected the king's two grandchildren who are in direct line to the throne.

The decision, announced in a statement published by the Royal Court of Sweden, regards the two sons of Prince Carl Philip and the three children of Princess Madeleine.
