George and Charlotte are going to be in school. They aren’t going. I would imagine that Victoria and Daniel would bring the kids to London to visit Madeline and her family. Maybe then they would have a play date with the Cambridges. However, we probably would not even know about it especially if they spent a weekend in Norfolk.

Victoria met this afternoon at the Royal Palace the British Ambassador to Sweden, HE David Cairns. During the meeting ambassador Cairns informed Victoria about the program during the Ducal Couple's days in Sweden. Also ambassador's wife Sharon Cairns attended at the meeting.

It is unfortunate that Brexit has created a divide between the British Royal Family and other European Royal Families, although obviously they won't show that in public and will both play the part of good cousins.

That’s all in how you choose to look at it... I would expect that any time a royal visit happens, both parties are briefed by their governments about current issues in the other party’s country. It has little to do with what the issues are themselves, and more to do with being prepared for a foreign visit.

Regardless, the British Royal Family has had more a cooled relationship with the other European Royal Families since World War I, and even more so since World War II; Brexit has little to do with that.

My point was that Brexit may cause a cooling on the part of the European Royal Families, not on the British side. It is not personal, but royal families have to follow the guidelines of their prime ministers and ministers of foreign affairs when it comes to international relations. Several monarchies have governments that are strongly pro-Europe; if those governments cool down contacts with the British government after Brexit, it will also show in the contacts between the respective royal houses, i.e. fewer state/official visits and things like that.

The British Embassy in Stockholm tells at their Twitter, that William and Kate (and Victoria and Daniel) meet public at Stortorget at 14.45 on 30th January. It has been updated to the program the Royal Court published.

The online British Monarch Website still has no engagements for William for the next month in the
FE. Normally by this stage they would at least indicate that William and Kate were going to do an overseas tour but nothing there at all for them.

The weather forecast for Stockholm on Tuesday, January 30, is not so nice for a walk in the park: -5 C / 0 C ( 23 F / 32 F for the American readers), but at least no snow or rain.

It’s in the briefing on the tour that they are staying at the Embassy the night before. So they are arriving on Monday.

The duke and duchess have arrived in Stockholm. There are some pictures in the article. It basically just says that they were picked up at Arlanda by security staff.

They are staying at the brittish ambassadors residence since the guest flat at the castle is undergoing renovations.
