Titles and styles

Adrienne was initially styled Her Royal Highness Princess Adrienne, Duchess of Blekinge.[6][7] On 7 October 2019 the king issued a statement rescinding the style Royal Highness and removing Adrienne from the royal house in an effort to associate more strictly Swedish royalty to the office of the head of state; she is still to be styled as a princess and duchess and remains in the line of succession to the throne.[8][9][10]
