Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip of Sweden have taken to their Instagram account to share an adorable new photograph of their sons, Prince Gabriel and Prince Alexander. The sweet shot, which shows the royal brothers sat on a bench together on a sunny day, was captioned: "Summer at Solliden," with a sweet heart emoji - referring to the palace where the Swedish royals spend the warmer months.
