A big, happy family - Sweden's royals give everyone the photo they've been waiting for as every single member is caught in the same picture in public for the first time
It's the photo everyone has been waiting for. For the first time, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia have been pictured with all their descendants as their three children and five grandchildren joined them in the gardens of Solliden for a summer photo call.

Carl XVI Gustaf and Silvia led the Royal Family out but while this may have been a well planned photocall, the smaller members of the group had other ideas. And after just a few minutes altogether, it was clear that while there might be more boys in the third generation of Carl Gustaf and Silvia's family. it's their granddaughters who are very much in charge.

Princess Estelle stopped the whole royal cavalcade in its tracks as they appeared through the trees of their summer residence when she spotted something on the floor. Her grandparents might be King and Queen of Sweden but in this context, it was Estelle who ruled as they and her parents, Victoria and Daniel, had to stop and lend a hand.

And in the middle were the proud smiles of their grandparents. The King and Queen of Sweden have just marked forty years of marriage, Carl XVI Gustaf's 70th birthday and the 40th anniversary of Silvia's reign. But as they watch their family grow, it's clear that the future generations mean everything to them.
