However, regarding the Swedish monarchy thus according to Wikipedia:
While the monarch is no longer the commander-in-chief (Swedish: högste befälhavare) of the Swedish Armed Forces, as he once was under the 1809 Instrument of Government(and much older custom, as shown in the history section), King Carl XVI Gustaf retains the honorary ranks of a four star admiral in the Swedish Navy and general in the Swedish Army and Air Force. As part of his court, the monarch has a military staff, which is headed by a senior officer (usually a general or admiral, retired from active service) and includes active duty military officers serving as aides-de-camp to the monarch and his or her family.
