Much has been written about the contentment Sweden's Princess Madeleine has found in New York after falling in love with financier Chris O'Neill.
But a picture speaks a thousand words, and the latest images of the couple prove just how comfortable they really are with one another.
Dressed down, meandering hand in hand through the streets of the Big Apple with her man, the royal is just like any other woman in love as the couple go about their daily routine.

During their low-key day out, 30-year-old Madeleine and Chris stocked up on supplies at Whole Foods supermarket.
Later, they pampered themselves at a nail salon before heading back to the luxury Manhattan apartment they share.
The pretty royal moved to New York almost two years ago to start over after splitting from her fiancé and boyfriend of eight years, Jonas Bergström.
There, she fell for the millionaire who has now been fully introduced to the royal family, including Madeleine's father King Carl Gustaf.
The 37-year-old financial adviser was by Madeleine's side when she attended the christening of her niece, Estelle, who will eventually become queen after her mother Crown Princess Victoria.
In an unprecedented move the king gave his permission for Chris to attend.
