King Carl Gustaf and Carl Philip attended the FIS Cross Country Skiing World Cup's Final Day's competitions in Falun today. They talked with Swedish skiers Frida Karlsson and Ebba Andersson. According to the court calendar, only the King should have attended.

Men's 20 km later today.

The King said to Viaplay that it's great to be in Falun. Brilliant weather and great atmosphere among the audience. He has been there many times, it's just as exciting and fun when things go well and just as sad when things go badly.
Ebba Andersson tells that both the King and Carl Philip were in a good mood, so it helped, because the race of the swedish ladies didn't go very well. Ebba thinks it was fun to have a small conversation with the King and Carl Philip, they spoke about the skiing season as a whole, the nice weather and that sort of thing. Since the King is a big skiing fan, Ebba advised him to watch the Swedish Championships next week.
Linn Svahn, who finished second overall in the World Cup, also talked with the royal duo afterwards and says they are nice. The King was going along the track to follow the men's race.
