The royal couple married in 2015

Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden delighted royal fans on Saturday when they treated them to ten never-before-seen pictures from their wedding day, which took place five years ago.

Marking their special anniversary, the couple wrote on their Instagram: "Sometimes every person comes to a decisive choice; a choice that determines one's future and is about who one is and above all, who one wants to be. And often it takes courage. Courage not to choose the easy path just because it is easy, without courage to stay on the hard road because it's right."
