It’s summertime and that means holiday season for our favourite royals! Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip of Sweden have made their summer residence, Solliden, their home during the sunny month of August – and according to their Instagram account, their adorable boys, Prince Alexander , 2, and 11-month-old Prince Gabriel , are really enjoying themselves.
Taking to their official social media account, the couple shared a stunning photo taken of their sons sitting on a stone bench, looking off down a stone pathway at their home in Borgholm, a small city in Sweden. Prince Alexander looks adorable in a pink and blue button up, while his little brother dons super sweet baby blue overalls. The caption reads “Sommar på Solliden,” meaning “Summer at Solliden”.
The Swedish royals aren’t alone when it comes to getting away for the summer holidays! While the family of four are living it up in the Swedish countryside, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have taken to their leased home in the Cotswolds of southern England to take a breather from the limelight. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also packed up their three kids and headed for a tropical (and super-exclusive!) Caribbean getaway in Mustique, where Prince William and Kate stepped out for a rare night of dancing. Meanwhile, the Spanish Royal Familyare keeping their vacation close to home, choosing to soak up the sun in the Spanish island of Mallorca.

Fans of the Swedish royals were overjoyed last winter when Prince Gabriel was baptized in a stunning ceremony. His mom wore traditional Swedish garb, while his dad looked dapper as ever in his military uniform. The entire family took a group photo in Drottningholm palace after his christening, showing off their megawatt smiles for the camera. Little Alexander and Gabriel were spotted once again in June at their cousin Princess Adrienne’s christening, where the older brother looked cuter than ever in one of his dad’s old outfits from 1982. Hopefully the duo will have plenty of bonding time this summer with their newest cousin and her siblings, Princess Leonor and Prince Nicolas, as they prepare to move to Florida with their parents, Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill.
