Happy Birthday, Prince Gabriel! Swedish Royals Share Adorable Snaps in Honor of Prince Turning 1
"For a year you have spread joy to us and big brother!" Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip captioned a photo of Gabriel on Instagram
Prince Gabriel is celebrating his first birthday — with his baby blues on full display!
“Congratulations beloved Gabriel,” the proud parents captioned a close-up shot of Gabriel smiling and showing off his bright blue eyes on their joint Instagram account in Swedish. “For a year you have spread joy to us and big brother!”
The Swedish Royal Court’s official Instagram account shared another portrait of the baby happily looking at the camera.
Princess Sofia — who competed in a Tough Viking obstacle course over the weekend and recently opened up about the online bullying she endured early in her royal relationship — and her husband shared what it was like to become a family of four in a November interview with Swedish magazine Kupé.

“It’s quite different having two children rather than just one,” Carl Philip admitted.
Having two children, Sofia said, is an adjustment, but a positive one. “We do get glimpses that it’s going to be tougher with two than with one,” the 33-year-old mother said. “But there is also twice as much love.”
Carl Philip, 39, agreed: “Gabriel and Alexander are still so small, but it’s so exciting to follow their development. It’s great to be part of their journey.”
