It is a Swedish, but also an internationally large company. Most people have taken part in game DICE has created”.
As the Prince said DICE is both Swedish and international, the company has offices in both Stockholm and Los Angeles and produces digital games that are enjoyed the world over such as the “Battlefront” franchise. The Prince who is a keen and accomplished graphic designer assisted staff with photographing human movement as part of a “Star Wars” video game. In addition to this, he also enjoyed himself with race car simulators. Prince Carl Philip holds a competitor’s licence and has competed in the Scandinavian Porsche Carrera Cup, and more recently the Scandinavian Touring Car Championship.

He and his wife, Princess Sofia, are expecting a second child in September, Royal Central will, of course, keep you up to date on any news of a new arrival.
