Obscure Members of Royal Families: Sweden

We know there's more to the monarchies than the Senior Royals, right? Right. A True Monarchist would anyway. You know- the cousins, aunts and uncles of the sovereign who aren't technically in line (at least in Monaco & Sweden's cases), but are still considered as part of the Royal Family as they are blood related.

Let's start with the ones you probably know:
  1. King Carl XVI Gustav, has been King of Sweden since 1973. 
  2. Queen Silvia, wife of Carl has been his queen since their marriage in 1976 

King Carl XVI Gustav and Queen Silvia have three children, a son-in-law, a future son-in-law and granddaughter:
  1. Crown Princess Victoria, Duchess of Västergötland, the oldest daughter of King Carl and Queen Silvia and is heir apparent to the throne. 
  2. Prince Daniel Duke of Västergötland, Crown Princess Victoria's husband since 2010. 
    1. Princess Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary, Duchess of Östergötland, daughter of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, born in February 2012 
  3. Prince Carl Phillip, Duke of Värmland, only son of King Carl and Queen Silvia, he is 4th in line for the throne after his niece, Princess Estelle. 
  4. Princess Madeline, Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland, younger daughter of King Carl and Queen Silvia, she resides in NYC where she works full-time for a charitable organization
