I was simply asking the question why Daniel didn't wear a uniform (?). Therefore, will Sweden follow the precedent of prince consorts being appointed admiral/general upon the succession of the monarch, i.e., queen regnant, or perhaps Daniel will not assume any military authority like the late prince consort of the Netherlands (Claus)?
