His Swedish Majesty's Ship abbreviated H.S.w.M.S. or H.S.w.M. Ship, is the ship prefix used for ships of the Swedish Navy (Svenska marinen) when the head of state is a male monarch. In English, this is sometimes used when abroad to differentiate Swedish vessels from those of the British Royal Navy.
