The Swedish royal family wasn't sure about when to stand or not.

But Crown Princess Victoria aka the future Queen was all like, "Peeps, I have spoken, it's time to stand up."

Everyone was hot. Even Crown Princess Victoria had to fan herself.

In their defense, the attractiveness of this particular royal family + summer = HOT.

There was this amazing moment between Princess Mary of Denmark, and Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway.

Do you think they do a royal scandinavian fist bump whenever they're in the same room with each other?

Princess Mette-Marit, btw, has the best stank face we've ever seen.
