His third and final marriage took place in Morocco in 1978 to Kristine Rivelsrud. He was at the center of the Huseby scandal that occurred in the late 1950s in Sweden amidst a great deal of publicity. He and other suspects had gained the trust of a Florence Stephens, a wealthy elderly heiress of a large estate near Växjö in southern Sweden who claimed to be an extramarital daughter of Carl's grandfather King Oscar II of Sweden and Norway. A complex set of criminal transactions led to the ruin of Stephens and brought Carl and the others to court. He was acquitted, in spite of his full confession, because of no criminal intent.
