Re: Styling of the HRH-less princes and princesses?
Back in the old days, a Nobleman with no title could be styled "Välborne" and a Baron or a Count could be stylde "Högvälborne". I think it would be considered ridiculous if those styles were used for the King's grandchildren who aren't HRH.
I know that you asked about styling of Swedish nobles, and I think that I answered your question. There is no such styling. "His Excellency" is only used for the Marshall of the Realm. Prior to 1975, that style was also used for the Prime Minister and the Foreign Minister.
I know that in the Netherlands and Belgium as well as in Germany, Austria and France nobles used to have a particular styling varying from country to country.
I know that outside of the Royal Dukedoms there was at least one Duke so i wondered if Sweden did have it's noble styling.
I believe Denmark has one. At least HM made her former daughter-in-law Her Excellency countess Alexandra of Frederiksborg.
Are Swedish nobles styled in a particular way or is there no difference between addressing a count or commoner?
There is really no equivalence to the way British peers are styled. If I met a Swedish Count and I knew that he was very conservative, I would say greven (the Count) to him.
Has the Swedish court said anything about the styling of the 5 grandchildren of the King who have now lost their HRH?
How are Dukes styled in Sweden?
Will they be styled HH abroad (Norwegian example) or would they be addressed as Your Grace in the UK?
Nothing at all has been said about that, AFAIK. How Dukes are styled in Sweden? Well, up until now, all Dukes but one have been members of the Royal House. The only exception is the Duke of Otranto (d'Otrante) and I don't know if he has ever been styled in a certain way.
