Hello.
Can I ask a favour, could you post not direct links to the pictures, but links so I can check who post those? Because that way, I don't know where to look for the source, and perhaps I could use the second pic in my post?
I would be very greatful.

They won't have free time, this visit is too quick. They willl attend engagements evey day, press has not been given access to every engagement however. According to Rookie only first day was with free access.
As for leisure time I read it at some Finnish article, but I'm pretty sure it's not true.

Forgot to add, here's pic from last night dinner.

Hi, the photo is from Turun Sanomat
Englannin kuninkaalliset Edward ja Sophie kyläilevät Suomessa - Kotimaa - Turun Sanomat

The students of the College who are at the Avartti-program (= International Award for Young People), attend at a joint camp organised at the Oivanki Outdoor Education Centre. At the camp they get to know each other.

And here is a great gallery from yesterday's Award ceremony, hope you can open this. By photographer Juha Kinanen.

Lovely photos of the ceremony - it's always nice to see the Duke of Edinburgh awards getting coverage.

Even Sophie's coat was black...she was loving the black theme yesterday!

I recognise it from a Remembrance Day service at some point.

I am loving Edward's winter jumper in the picture of them leaving for Lapland. It's a skiing jumper for sure.

Is it always this hard or is this a special occasion? I live in Finland and it almost feels like they are not here at all. Very limited media coverage. :(

Live TV of the earl and countess at the Avartti-program event/camp at the Oivanki Outdoor Education Center, from 14.50 o'clock. I hope this can be seen abroad too. At the program playing curling, ice fishing, snowshoeing and cooking outdoors.

When they do engagements for the DofE Award, it is always this hard, due to no press coverage. Press is simply not allowed to cover most of those engagements. Not sure why. But I think we will see more after the visit will end.

According to this news article, Edward's and Sophie's visit to Oivanki lasts 45 minutes.

This article just tells that the Avartti-program was introduced to Edward and Sophie and at the camp at the program was curling, ice fishing, snowshoeing and cooking outdoors
Prinssi Edward ja kreivitär Sophie vierailivat Kuusamossa Yle Uutiset yle.fi

From the Facebook of YLE TV Oulu
https://www.facebook.com/yleoulu/pho...type=1&theater

"The Reporters were not allowed there, but looking at the official images of the defence forces, the royals seemed to have had quite nice time in Sodankylä. And they got also coffee or something other warm to drink".

Do you know if Finnish Defence Forces share pictures like British and other ones? Puolustusvoimat

^^ Apologies, I hadn't read the links above. Thanks for your link - the photos make me wish we had snow to go out and play in.

I love that Edward and Sophie wore the clothes provided for them as they look so warm.

Sweet photo

I love the clip of Sophie curling is funny with her when she says she may use her right arm (as she is left handed) with Edward hurrying Sophie up. "We've got a few other activities to get to so..."

I also love her bobble hat.

Who fell over at the end? That made me chuckle as well....
