If you are as excited about the news as us, you probably want to send Carl Philip and Sofia a letter or card to congratulate them on their baby. The address is:

TRH Prince Couple
Kungl. Slottet
SE-107 70  Stockholm

What to expect in reply? Will they reply?

Who really knows when it comes to the Swedish Royal Family. Sometimes they send out replies, sometimes they don't. They do always release a statement online saying how deeply touched they were for all the well-wishes.

You can find the two replies I have gotten from the Swedish Royal Family here.
