Victoria and Daniel aren't the only Swedish royals to own a dog – the crown princess' parents, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, have two pooches called Brandy and Bingo. Prince Carl Philip and his wife Princess Sofia have a dog named Siri, while Princess Madeleine and her husband Christopher O'Neill have recently welcomed a puppy named Teddy to their family home in Florida.

The crown princess and prince have remained at their official residence, Haga Palace, in Stockholm since the coronavirus lockdown began in the country. During the Easter holidays, Victoria and Daniel caught up with the rest of the Swedish royals over a video call. King Carl and Queen Silvia are currently staying at their summer residence Stenhammar Palace in Södermanland, while Prince Carl and Princess Sofia are at their home, Villa Solbacken, in Stockholm.
