Their Majesties are staying in their family cabin in Storlien with some of their family.

Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel and their two children, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar, are said to be spending the holiday privately while their children are out of school. However, the Royal Court did not confirm to Svenskdam if the Crown Princess Family were with the King and Queen or elsewhere.

The Swedish magazine did report that Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia, with their three sons, Princes Alexander, Gabriel and Julian, are spending the holiday with Their Majesties.

The Swedish royals stay in an inherited cabin in Storlien and have visited the area to ski for decades. His Majesty inherited the home from his parents, Prince Gustaf Adolph and Princess Sibylla.
