Her royal duties usually involve attending a charity meeting in a smart dress and towering heels.
But today Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden opted for something a little different as she donned her snow gear and skis.
The royal, 40, was taking part in a Province Walk in Tarnaby and Hemavan in Swedish Lapland – a series of picturesque hikes set up to promote nature exploration in Sweden.
Mother-of-two Victoria looked sporty in black ski trousers teamed with a blue sports jacket to keep the chill at bay.
She kept cosy in a colourful knitted hat and donned a pair of dark shades to protect her eyes from the glare.

And she eschewed her customary swept back hair in a bun in favour of plaited pigtails for the casual outing.
The royal stopped off at Skytteanska School along the way for a storytelling session with children’s character Plupp.
The blue-haired, red nosed imp is the central character of a series of much-loved children’s books by Swedish author Inga Borg.
The Province Walk initiative started in September 2017 and sees the Crown Princess partaking in landscape walks to experience a part of Sweden’s uniquely accessible and varied nature.
