W-A & Max's visit to Italy was a state visit, wasn't it ? Very different then.

It is true that W&K were not invited to come to Sweden; they invited themselves. Also, following the Brexit referendum, the relationship between Sweden and the UK has cooled down considerably (remember Carl Bildt's awful tweets ? Although he's been long out of the government, it was quite telling IMHO).

That is actually a shame as Sweden, as a mildly Eurosceptic country that didn't join the Euro, used to be one of the UK's "natural allies" inside the EU.

Well the reason for that relationship cooling down might be because of Sweden's need to find other allies within the union now UK is leaving. Sweden's biggest export market is the EU and with UK leaving and the trade obstacles that will mean for the not inconsiderable trade between the two nations the importance of the export to the remaining union countries will only increase. If not only because of the mess Whitehall has done of negotiations so far. A visit from the Cambridges won't make any difference at all.

Here is not the place for 'Brexit bickering', but since you mention it, 'not rolling over to EU demands is absolutely what the majority of UK citizens want.

Richard Palmer tweeted:
"Interesting to note that we haven’t seen many Swedish reporters covering the royals in Stockholm and the tour doesn’t seem to feature prominently in the press here."

I've been loving all the photos of this visit! As Catherine and Victoria are some of my favourite royals it was an extra bonus to see them together. William and Victoria seem to have a friendly relationship as well. I remember when there were rumours when William was single that he would marry Princess Madeleine, haha.
I do think it would have been nice if George and Charlotte could have come on the tour too because it would have been super cute if they had met Estelle and Oscar at the afternoon tea. Oh well, it's a rarity to see the Cambridges with continental royals and I was still satisfied with these photos; so I'm not complaining.
