Now you can get to know the Swedish royal family on a whole new level: Prince Carl Philip of Sweden quietly made his Instagram account public earlier this month.

On May 12, Carl Philip posted a selfie on Instagram alongside his wife, Princess Sofia, to announce their newly public profile. "Welcome to our official Instagram account," the caption reads. "As you can see, we have already posted photos for a while to give you an insight into our work." In fact, the earliest post on the Instagram feed dates back to June 8, 2017, showing Carl Philip working on a speech about dyslexia.

A quick glance at their Instagram shows the royals hard at work on their various causes, but also family photos of their two children, Prince Alexander and Prince Gabriel. In September 2017, they posted a photo of newborn Gabriel with his older brother:

The royals also share candid family photos on their Instagram, including an sweet picture of the family of four posted on Valentine's Day:

Carl Philip, Sofia, and their children have previously been seen on the Swedish Royal Family's official Instagram account. That Instagram feed shares highlights from every member of the family, including Carl Philip's parents, King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia, and his two sisters, Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine. That's where the royals have released official family photos in the past, including a family portrait taken after Prince Gabriel's christening back in December 2017:

But Carl Philip isn't the only Swedish royal to develop his own social media presence. In March, his sister Princess Madeleine joined Instagram, where she posted a photo of her newborn daughter.

Despite the fact that Meghan Markle famously had to delete her social media accounts as she prepared to join the British royal family, it's clear that other royals are happily sharing snaps of their daily lives on Instagram. Earlier this year, Princess Eugenie joined Instagram, posting a never-before-seen photo from her engagement shoot taken in January. And, there's even an actual Queen on Instagram: Queen Rania of Jordan has her own account with a whopping 4.5 million followers. Here's hoping Queen Elizabeth joins the 'gram next.
