King Carl made a decision to cut down the number of people from the royal family that are expected to perform duties officially.

An official statement from the royal house reads:

His Majesty the King has decided on changes to the Royal House. The purpose of these changes is to establish which members of The Royal Family may be expected to perform official duties incumbent on the Head of State or related to the function of the Head of State.

His Majesty the King has decided that the children of Their Royal Highnesses Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia, and the children of Her Royal Highness Princess Madeleine and Mr. Christopher O’Neill will no longer be members of The Royal House.

Though the former royals have been stripped of their titles of Royal Highness, however, they would retain the title of Duke or Duchess.

Expert believe Prince Charles wants to do the same

After the Swedish king removed his grandchildren from the royal house, a royal expert has claimed Prince Charles wants to do the same in the UK. American author and journalist Edward Klein alleged that the Prince of Wales excluded Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie from royal funding.

Charles’ decision to remove the two royals from funding and senior royal duties reportedly angered his brother, Prince Andrew.

It looks like Prince Charles agrees with the Swedish King’s move as he desires to trim the British monarchy as well. Do you think it would be a good move for him when he is king?
