5 Swedish monarchy members expelled

 

The King of Sweden has reduced the number of family members who will continue to receive taxpayer funds, stripping five of his grandchildren of their royal highness status, according to an official statement. The children will keep their titles of prince/princess and duke/duchess, but won’t be expected to perform royal duties, Fredrik Wersäll, marshal of the realm, said in a statement on the Swedish Royal Court’s website. The only two grandchildren of King Carl Gustaf who were excluded from the move are the children of Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria — Princess Estelle and her younger brother, Prince Oscar.
