Some royal duties are undoubtedly formal, but this weekend Sweden‘s Crown Princess and her family got to spend their Sunday enjoying a sports day at Haga Park. 

Princess Estelle, six, got to try her hand at skateboarding at the annual Hagaloppet and Prince Daniel’s race event. 

And she looked confident as she practiced her new skills, wearing a blue helmet for safety, while her mother Crown Princess Victoria, 41, looked on. 

Being a little young for skateboarding her brother Prince Oscar, two, looked on from his mother’s arms as his sister laughed and played.

The Hagaloppet is a 5K race around Haga park, for people of all ages and abilities over the age of 13. 

Former personal trainer Prince Daniel’s race is specially designed for children aged six to 12. 

The goal is not to win, but to encourage children to enjoy sport and taking part, and all participants are awarded a medal at the end. 

Safety first! Princess Estelle looked every inch the little pro with her blue helmet on her head and her board tucked under her arm

The Prince himself was waiting at the finish line to hand out prizes to delighted youngsters after completing the race. 

Promoting sport is a cause close to Prince Daniel’s heart as he worked as a personal trainer and had his own gym business before marrying into the royal family. 

Indeed, he met Crown Princess Victoria when she enlisted him as her personal trainer as she sought refuge in exercise to help her recovery after battling anorexia.
