Hot toast warm-up for William and Kate at Stockholm bandy session

Hot toast warm-up for William and Kate at Stockholm bandy session

"Today the players received a memory for their entire lives, every one of them, I spoke to afterwards, they were so happy".

After a brief tutorial on the sport, William and Kate faced off in a penalty shoot-out, with William scoring two goals in a three-shot game to Kate's one.

William and Kate dined with Hollywood stars Alicia Vikander and Stellan Skarsgard, a billionaire businessman, leading politicians, television celebrities and Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden. Bandy is one of the biggest winter sports in Sweden, but outside Sweden and Russian Federation it is still largely unknown - a distant second-favourite to ice hockey.

Before they leave Sweden for Norway, the Duke and Duchess will receive a brief talk on the Swedish Armed Forces' capabilities and get to view some aircraft.

Braving chilly temperatures of -1C, Kate and Wills took to the ice on an outdoor ice skating rink for the bandy hockey game in Stockholm.

His little sister Charlotte meanwhile appears to be particularly taken with balloons, making a beeline for them on her first official engagement during a royal visit to Canada in 2016.

The competitive couple, whose third child is due in April, kept warm by sipping hot chocolate with local school children.

They will go for lunch with King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. "The category we help most is teenage girls and they prefer swishy wigs at the moment", said Monica Glass, manager of Little Princess Trust.

The princess and prince then joined the pair on a walk to Stockholm's oldest public square, Stortorget.

The Cambridges reunited with the couple in the evening for a black tie dinner at the Residence of the British Ambassador.

The foursome posed for a photograph on their way into the grand dining room, and afterwards met with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and his wife Ulla Löfven.
