Twinning future queens! Duchess Catherine and Crown Princess Victoria stunned in similar coats for this very royal photo op GettyImages/Chris Jackson

It was a royal family affair in this adorable photo from Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s four-day trip to Sweden and Norway.

After playing bandy hockey earlier this morning, Catherine and William joined King Carl KVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel for lunch at the Royal Palace of Stockholm and the three couples posed together for one epic royal photo.

Later, William and Catherine joined Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel for an outing to Stockholm’s Nobel Museum, where they learned more about Sweden’s Nobel Laureate system.

Kate and Victoria were twinning in similar faux furs and green coats as they out into the snowy Stockholm day. The coats weren’t the only thing these royal ladies have in common, sort of. Princess Victoria will one day be Queen of Sweden while Duchess Catherine will become a consort when her husband becomes King. PEOPLE reports that William and Victoria are actually distant cousins! The Swedish royal couple also attended William and Kate’s royal wedding in 2011 and each couple have one daughter and one son, respectively.

The couples also met with some of the country’s global furniture and architectural brands, including IKEA, on the tour.


After the tour, the Duke and Duchess attended a black tie dinner at the Residence of the British Ambassador where they met with Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and his wife Ulla Löfven. Swedish actors Stellan Skarsgård and Alicia Vikander were among the distinguished guests at the event.

William and Kate kicked off their official tour on Monday evening after taking their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte to school in the morning. From Sweden, the couple will move to on to Norway to wrap up the tour. William will fly solo at one event in Norway so that the pregnant Duchess can rest.
