Prince Julian pays special visit to his duchy


Prince Julian of Sweden paid a special visit to his duchy to inaugurate his christening gift.

The three-year-old was in Varberg, Halland County with his parents, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia, to open the playground named after him.

To celebrate his christening, he was given Prince Julian’s Playground to celebrate the important religious event. The bird-themed playground is located at Naturum Getterön in Varberg.

Prince Julian even named a climbing frame with a slide during the outing, with the young royal naming it “Charlie Örn.”

The family later visited the observation point and learned about bird life at the nature reserve.

On Instagram, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia posted photos from their day in Halland to thank everyone for their warm welcome:

“Today we visited Halland together with Julian.

“On Getterön in Varberg, Julian opened a playground built in his name. Julian took the opportunity to name the big eagle on the playground “Charlie Eagle”. 🦅 We hope that many children and parents will have at least as much fun on the playground as we had today.

“During the day, we also took the opportunity to visit Varberg’s Fortress. There we got to learn more about the exciting history of the place and meet a slightly older resident: Bockstensmannen!

“A big thank you to the county council, Varberg’s municipality, Halland’s cultural history museum at Varberg’s fortress and Naturum Getterön for a fantastic day in beautiful Halland!”

The playground is now open to the public.

Julian’s grandfather, King Carl XVI Gustaf, granted him the title of Duke of Halland in a cabinet meeting after his birth.
