  1. I wonder how this will affect the child legally speaking. Will he or she still be called Prince or Princesses? Do they have rights to the Throne?

  2. The birthplace isn’t important. But a heir to the swedish throne has to be raised mostly in Sweden. As for her (it’s confirmed that the baby will be a girl) being a Princess, that’s the decision of the king (who would give her the Princess title) and her parents (who can decide if they even want a tite for their daughter.
