Re: Private manís daughter
They were styled as such but i believe the Swedish king never formally gave them the title. Im not sure if the Swedish King at that time could bestow noble titles on his own. It was the Grand Duke of Luxembourg who incorporated the title into the nobility of Luxembourg but that is based on a quick wikipedia search and that doesn't make for the most reliable source.
Prince Oscar a son of Oscar II and Sofia of Nassau married Ebba Munck af Fulkila. She was part of the Swedish nobility and a lady in waiting at court. He did loose his succession rights and his royal title by marrying her. His maternal uncle the grand duke of Luxembourg gave them the official titles of prince and princess Bernadotte and the hereditary title count af Wisborg for their offspring.
So i guess that answers your question at least in the late 19th century. Several princes married commoners but not noble women so we don't really know how the rules might have been stretched or adapted if some of them had opted for women of the Swedish nobility.
I think that the styles Prince and Princess Bernadotte were given to them by King Oscar II.
