Royal Generations meeting

Princess Mary, Prince Frederik and their children have made their way to Norway to meet with future monarchs for an informal royal generations meeting - and shared an adorable group photo as a result!

By invitation of Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, royals from Sweden, Luxembourg and Denmark met at the summer Estate of Norway’s royal family in Mågerø , on the island of Tjøme , south of Oslo, earlier this week.

Along with Mary, Frederik and their four kids, Christian, 9, Isabella, 8, and twins Josephine and Vincent, 4, were the next in line for the Norwegian, Swedish and Luxembourgian thrones.

In an image released by The Norwegian royal family the coming together of four different kingdoms was captured for posterity - though we couldn't help but notice Prince Christian and Princess Isabella looked less than impressed!
