Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to embark on Sweden two-day visit

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to embark on Sweden two-day visit”

Bandy, played mainly in the Nordic region and Russian Federation, is similar to ice hockey but played with a small ball instead of a puck and with larger pitches and goals. Or are they just like the rest of us, sitting in a graveyard of random parts, cursing in anger over a missing packet of screws?

Bandy is one of Sweden's (and Scandinavia's) most popular sports, and Sweden's women's team won the 2018 World Bandy Championships. The increased press, therefore, has apparently led the royal couple to rethink the location of where their third child will be delivered.

The couple's first day in Sweden was certainly action packed!

The Duchess of Cambridge was left glum faced after she was beaten in a bandy hockey penalty shootout by her husband.

They headed to the Residence of the British Ambassador to Sweden, where they stayed the night.

William and Kate met more Swedish celebs during tonight's formal gala, including actors Alicia Vikander and Stellan Skarsgård.

Prince William and Catherine will also meet academics on their trip to hear about how Sweden deals with mental health issues. The Duke will deliver a speech at the event.

Ikea's head of design, Marcus Engman said that while showing the Duke and Duchess around, they noted that they have Ikea furniture for their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

No stranger to royal tours, Kate has become the master of mixing home-grown British brands with local labels and designers and always dressing impeccably for the occasion - whethere it's a state function or a casual meet-and-greet.

Royal watchers will find the down-to-earth attitude of the Cambridges surprising, given that Prince William's mother Princess Diana of Wales made similar efforts to dispense with formalities and raise her children in a hand-on fashion.

Later on, they will visit MESH, which is a co-working space for entrepreneurs and start-up companies to help grow their businesses.
