We're going to be seeing a lot of royals in Brazil in the coming days and weeks and someone had to get the show started. Prince Joachim and Princess Marie of Denmark get first dibs on regal action near Rio as they were seen carrying out engagements and enjoying a bit of family time just days before the Olympics start. And while there will be plenty of spectacular images as royals from across Europe head to Brazil, they've got a job on their hands to top the image of Joachim, Marie and their family smiling in front of the Iguazu Falls.

The holiday snap is just one of several photos of the royals in Brazil. Joachim and Marie have also been helping celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Brazil Denmark Chamber of Commerce at an evening reception.
There was another anniversary to celebrate as they took part in festivities for the 125th birthday for the Scandinavian Northern Lights Club. And that's the relaxing part of their trip. The couple will head to Rio for the Olympics where they will cheer on the Danish team alongside Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary who are due in Brazil very soon. The royal build up to the Games is well and truly under way.
