Or is it common for Scandinavian families to do so? And do the royals truly spend a lot less time with each other than the average family would do?

Just my opinion, but I think they spend more as they both love and trust them, even better they can relax and totally be themselves.

Friends and staff can often be indiscreet or just plain greedy.

The Royal family do spend a lot of time away from their children on long trips both domestically and abroad and have several nights a week when they're not at home for bedtime. This is something that both Crown Princess Victoria, Princess Madeleine & their parents have spoken about as putting much emotional strain on the family and all of them have mentioned how it affected Madeleine in particular.
Naturally many others spend a lot of nights and weekends away from their families working. Especially those in healthcare that often work every second weekends and have early mornings and late nights. I'm sure they'd like the opportunity to spend a few weeks together as a family each year.

"Right now it is blooming fantastically around the well that we call the Danish well. The roses around the well are a 70th anniversary gift to the King from the Danish Royal Family."

"Now it really blooms in the Dutch Rose Garden in the palace park. The garden got its name when in 1922 it was a 60th anniversary gift to Queen Victoria from the Dutch Royal Family."
