Prince Carl Phillip Not Detained in US

Reports that Prince Carl Phillip was detained at a Miami airport recently are untrue according to a spokesperson for Sweden’s Royal Family.

Media reported Wednesday that when the Prince arrived in Miami he presented a diplomatic ID identifying him as a member of the Swedish royal family, but the immigration police apparently didn’t believe a prince would arrive unescorted and took him for an impostor.

Nina Eldh, of Sweden’s Royal Court, says the story is untrue, and that Prince Carl Phillip never told authorities he was a prince to get special treatment.

According to Eldh, Carl Phillips incoming flight to Miami was delayed and because of long cues at immigration, he missed his connecting flight.
