The king and queen are from 10-14th February 2007 in Are (Ski WM). What are they doing there - apart from looking the races and award the medals?

What are they doing at Monday? On this day are NO races?

Cool Love it!

Okay I think the hat is a little dorky but I love it on her! Crown Princess Victoria wears the hat not the hat wears her. I love it on her because it shows her personality and for some reason she can get away with the hat.

Great pics, thanks Iceflower!

The King looks a little disgruntled in the pics maybe he was cold or tired. I love the last one of Victoria, I think it's a very unique way that the camera caught her. Not sure if she was doing something with her hair/cap or if she was waving. But it looks very natural therefore it's my fave.

I love these pics as well. Man, does Victoria have charisma or what? Pic 2 is great and I love seeing the King show so much emotion that's what was missing from the previous pics. What daughter hasn't covered her ears while her dad screams and becomes slightly embarassing?

This is great seeing the Royal Family like this! Just like any other normal person, this is what makes me like the Swedish Royal Family so much, they are not afraid to let their personalities show and be seen to have fun. Much more relaxed than the British Royal Family.

I totally agree, its so nice to see royalty acting like just normal people because so many royal families are not like that.

Thank you, iceflower, for posting the very lovely pics of the King and Queen and Victoria in Are.
I totally agree with all of you. It is great to see the family behave so natural, having fun and showing their emotions.
By the way: I really love Victorias outfit!
