  • 7 October 2019 – present: Prince Nicolas of Sweden, Duke of Ångermanland

On 7 October 2019, the king issued a statement recinding the style Royal Highness and removing Nicolas from the royal house in an effort to more strictly associate Swedish royalty to the office of the head of state; he is still to be styled as a prince and duke and remains in the line of succession to the throne.[5]
