Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip of Sweden seem to be making the most of their summer with their two sons, Prince Alexander and Prince Gabriel.
The couple has shared several posts of their family enjoying the great outdoors as of late, including one particularly charming photo of Alexander and Gabriel posing on a wicker basket, both wearing white shirts, shorts, and matching espadrilles.
A second post features a slideshow of the royal family spending time outside, first with their bikes, then at a cafe (where it seems Alexander made a furry little friend), and finally enjoying a trampoline.
And in a third, the family can be seen visiting Lake Gisesjön, having a picnic, learning about local wildlife, and examining some berries. There's even a photo of a dog taking a swim in the lake, though Carl Philip and Sofia don't explain in the caption if it's their dog. (We hope it is, he's a good boy.)
Recently, the Swedish royal family announced that, in an effort to slim down the monarchy, the grandchildren of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia will no longer hold royal titles (save, of course, for the children of heir apparent Crown Princess Victoria). While Sofia and Carl Philip's sons will continue to hold the title of Prince, it will be in a personal capacity, and they will not pass the title down to their children.
At the time, Carl Philip and Sofia posted on Instagram, saying that they "see this as positive as Alexander and Gabriel will have freer choices in life." The couple added, "They will retain their Prince titles and their Duchies, Södermanland and Dalarna, which we value and are proud of. Our family has strong connections to both landscapes and we maintain our commitment there."
