Ahead of Sweden's school holidays, The King and Queen and The Crown Princess Family were photographed cross-country skiing – physically distanced – in Drottningholm Palace Park.

Almost the whole of Sweden has a covering of snow, and the school holidays began on Monday in parts of the country. Many skis, ice skates and sledges have now been taken out, and people are spending time together in the fresh air.

Royal Djurgården and the other royal parks in Stockholm and Mälardalen are open as usual.
