There are certain moments when we are reminded that kings and queens can also be grandparents, and Queen Silvia of Sweden did just that last week.
Her Majesty was watching the equestrian jumping event during the 2016 Rio Olympics with King Carl XVI Gustaf and the Dutch royals.
Wanting to capture some of the highlights to show friends and family back home, Queen Silvia whipped out her smart phone and got to work.
Wouldn’t you know, Silvia’s phone case features a smiling Princess Estelle, the consort’s first grandchild.
In the photo, Sweden’s third-in-line to the throne is wearing her signature smile and a red bow in her hair. If I had to guess, I would say that the photo was taken on school picture day.
Don’t tell Leonore that grandma is using Estelle’s pic as her phone cover. OMG so awkward.
Truth be told, I don’t think she’d care:
They say there is one in every family……
…..this is HRH Princess Leonore of Sweden…. 😉 pic.twitter.com/GfnyiESJJN
