It was picture postcard perfect. A future king and queen, along with their consorts, took a stroll through Stockholm in the snow. As #RoyalVisitSweden got well and truly under way, Kate and William were treated to a proper winter wonderland in Stockholm.
The wintry walk came hot on the heels of a morning playing bandy hockey which resulted in a win for the always competitive William before the Cambridges headed off to the Royal Palace for an official welcoe. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were treated to lunch by their hosts, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia. Also there were Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel who would be looking after William and Kate for most of the afternoon. Cue those very royal visit photos of everyone lining up and trying not to look like they're waiting for a bus.
William and Kate had a whole afternoon of events lined up but there were no carriages for these royals. Along with Victoria and Daniel they strolled through the cobbled streets of the Swedish capital to Stortorget in Stockholm Old Town and very pretty it looked, too.
Victoria and Daniel were very attentive hosts, chatting happily all the way along the stroll. The four royals stopped for a quick walkabout as they reached their destination, the Nobel Museum. Then it was time for the science part. The royals were given a tour of the museum (most likely Victoria and Daniel could have done that part themselves given the Swedish Royal Family's long association with the famous prizes) and were given an overview of the science on show.
