Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway shared a sweet selfie with her husband Crown Prince Haakon this week, as the pair enjoyed a ski break. In the candid pictures, the heir to Norway's throne kisses his wife on the head as she beams for the camera. The pair are both wrapped up in snow gear, with Mette-Marit wearing an orange knitted beanie hat and oversized sunglasses. Her dazzling diamond engagement ring can be seen on her left hand, as she puts one arm around her husband.

In a second image, the royal is smiling as the wind whips snow around her. She captioned the post: "It makes you happy to see ten metres here in the wind." The Norwegian royal family are renowned for their love of skiing and Mette-Marit previously shared a video of her eldest son from a previous relationship, Marius Borg Høiby, showing off his skills on the slopes during their Christmas break in Uvdal.
