The Norwegian Royal Family got together for Christmas as they stepped out for a church service in Oslo.
Led by King Harald V, the European royals were pictured on their way to their traditional Christmas service at the Holmenkollen Chapel in Norway’s snowy capital.
The 80-year-old monarch and his wife, Queen Sonja, dressed in formal clothes, while one of their young granddaughters opted for a slightly more casual festive look.
Leah Isadora Behn, 12, and her sister Emma Tallulah Behn, nine, joined in the festivities along with their mother, Princess Märtha Louise, who is King Harald’s daughter.

The family seemed in good spirits as they made their way from the car to the chapel, which backed onto a snowy thicket of trees, and were welcomed at the door.
The King wore a tie and a long, dark coat on his way to the chapel, while Queen Sonja chose an elegant fur coat, a matching brown hat and smart high-heeled boots.
Princess Märtha Louise, 46, dressed in a simple blue coat tied around her waist, matching trousers, and black boots with a chunky heel.
Two of the princess’s daughters, Leah Isadora and Emma Tallulah, were also pictured on their way in, with Leah, the elder sister, wearing a warm grey scarf and smart skirt.

Her younger sister Emma was allowed a less traditional outfit, with a bright red festive-looking jacket, blue jeans and comfortable walking boots.
King Harald has been on the Norwegian throne since 1991, when he succeeded his father, King Olav V. He married his wife Sonja Haraldsen, also 80, in 1968.
An active hunter and fisherman, according to the Norwegian Royal Family website, the King has also represented his country in sailing competitions.
His marriage to Sonja marked a break with tradition, as the future Queen was a commoner, but the current King’s father gave his consent for the couple to wed.
Princess Märtha Louise married Ari Behn, an author, in 2002, giving the royal granddaughters their surname, but split from her husband in 2016.
