Random Royaling – Sweet Family Moments

First of our holiday break Quick Hit posts, courtesy of the Swedish, Belgian and British Royal Families.

At the Swedish Nobel Academy’s annual dinner, we caught a glimpse of the King and Queen holding hands, demonstrating that classic love is the best love ; ). In addition, Princess Victoria was re-united for an evening with her old friend and assistant, Karolin Johansson (who is pictured here in court dress, which she did not wear last night). Four new female members were inducted into the academy. Photos courtesy of Svensk Dam. (Victoria in Camila Thulin)

The Belgian Royal Family showed off their shared genetics and wished everyone a Merry Christmas!

And, finally, the Brits, in a photo op for the “Together at Christmas” initiative. Letting George take the lead was a good idea, because the others don’t look so sure about their baking abilities.

Happy Christmas! 🎄 ⛄️ Four Generations of Royal cooks! Wonderful to photograph Her Majesty The Queen and Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince George taking part in The Royal British Legion’s ‘Together at Christmas’ initiative – A fantastic idea that supports people who have contributed SO much 🙏🏻 The initiative is designed to provide extra support to the Armed Forces and veteran communities at annual festive ‘get togethers’ across the charity’s network of outreach centres. Her Majesty and Their Royal Highnesses are pictured preparing special Christmas puddings in the Music Room at Buckingham Palace in December. The four generations of the Royal Family represent a cross-section of those supported by the Legion, from the children of service personnel, to Second World War veterans. The puddings will become the centrepieces of next year’s get togethers, and form part of 99 puddings distributed across the charity’s network in the UK and the Commonwealth – also marking The Royal British Legion’s 99th year.
