A New Prince in Sweden

The palace officially announced this evening that Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden have welcomed a son. The baby prince is the couple's first child. (Trivia fact: if the succession laws had not been changed seven months after Carl Philip's birth, this baby would be a future Swedish king.)

Shall we start our name guesses? If I had to put money on it, I'd expect to see Bertil among the names, in honor of Carl Philip's beloved great-uncle and godfather, Prince Bertil of Sweden.
