They are staying at the brittish ambassadors residence since the guest flat at the castle is undergoing renovations.
I am really excited about this Scandinavian tour. I hope there is a good chemistry between the Cambridges and the Swedish royals.

It is a pity that they couldn't stay at the Royal Palace.

Yes, it's a pity they couldn't stay at the Palace, but nice to know it's logistics and not an overabundance of "distance" as was feared when people were comparing the visits to Sweden and Norway.

Nice to see they dressed for the weather!

They are surely dressed for the weather ! I wonder if the Swedes will find it a little amusing. Well, better safe than sorry.

Everybody there seem dressed for the weather, I don't think anyone will find it funny. Plus I'm sure they'll have a dress change to meet the King and Queen.

They should (dress for the weather, I mean), but William and Kate look slightly overdressed compared to the crowd and the people around them. Their very tall knit hats are a little amusing IMHO.

Most Scandinavians have several of those hats and I'm absolutely sure the spectators are bundled up just as much as WCC. Difference could be long johns, layers of undergarments, thick socks etc... Dressing for below zero is something we do several months a year so we're quite good at it

It is also a matter of how accostumed you are to that kind of weather. Accuweather, according to my web search, is reporting the current air temperature in Stockholm as -1 C (RealFeel - 6 C), which is cold and requires warm clothing for safety, but, in the US northeast or the American Midwest for example, would not be considered particularly cold, but rather a normal daytime temperature in the winter. In southeast England where William and Kate live, that is, however, pretty much the coldest it normally gets in the year (current air temperature in London for example is 6 C, with RealFeel 7 C). So, it is predictable that they may overreact.

It must feel awkward for the Bernadottes, who are quite short by Northern European standards, to stand beside William and Kate in a group picture. Being a short person myself, I know the feeling. Carl Gustaf should be used to it by now though.

Why would it feel awkward for the Bernadottes? They have tall people in Sweden too....can't be that big of a deal.

That is what I said. They are used to being in pictures with people who are taller than them, because they are not particularly tall. I was just commenting that, from the perspective of shorter people, it may feel uncomfortable to be next to someone who is one head taller than you, especially in photos. Victoria and Daniel are slightly taller than the King, so it's not that bad for them.

Of course, Queen Elizabeth is even shorter (as was Queen Victoria) and she doesn't seem to bother.

They're a little shorter than the Cambridges, but not by that much, I don't think. The difference didn't stand out to me in those photos, anyway.

It all depends on the angle. See this picture for example.

Prince William is quite tall; he gets that from his Mother.
