Oscar joined Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Estelle in a rather chilly looking wing of the palace for the traditional tree delivery. Since the late 1960s, the Swedish University of Agriculutural Sciences had brought spruces to the Royal Palace to help with the decorations. Delivered by students from the Masters Programme there, a whole host of firs are now in the regal corridors waiting to be decked and decorated.
We see different members of the Swedish Royal Family receiving the trees every year although Estelle has become something of an expert at it. She made her debut at this traditional royal event in 2013 and helped mum again in 2014 and in 2016. This is Oscar's first foray into the whole thanks for the Christmas tree tradition but he can expect to take part many more times in the future. That first handshake will come in handy.
