It looks COLD in Sweden, for this, the first day of Wills and Kate’s four-day trip to Sweden and Norway — which brings with it so far extremely cute sporting shenanigans, two great hats, a very chic purse (Kate will use a handled bag when she is out of the country; I saw on Twitter several people wondering if this bag was The Markle Effect, and it might be in part, but she also carried a very similar bag in Paris), and much bundling. We’ll be getting a gown tonight, and I’m going to do another post when those pics come in, but first let’s dig into the daytime wear, shall we? Bonus: It’s always fun to see Royals Interact With Other Royals.

We also always love Royal Sporting Competitions BETWEEN LOVERS:

Here’s a bit more video footage from today’s festivities (so far):
