Swedish Royal Family Challenge: Day 31- Favourite moment of 2016 so far

This summer the Swedish royal family fulfilled all of the fandom’s wishes when they posed for a photo shoot as a group. It was the first photo shoot to feature all of the members of the family. The photo shoot was adorable: Leonore ran away, Estelle was a perfect little royal, Alexander and Oscar were cute little cupcakes, and Nicolas won over everyone by pulling Sofia’s hair. Seeing the whole family together was very special and exactly what we needed!
