The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have gone head-to-head in a penalty shootout while learning about bandy hockey in Sweden’s capital Stockholm.
The duke scored two goals to the duchess’s one after watching the 11-player game, played on a rink similar in size to a football pitch.
They are also due to meet Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel while in Sweden.
After their two-day visit to Sweden, they will travel to Norway.
On their first official visit to the Scandinavian countries, they will also celebrate Swedish design.
Ikea, whose founder died earlier this week, will be represented at the architectural event.

Prince William and Catherine will also meet academics to hear about how Sweden deals with mental health issues.
Later, the royal couple will attend a black-tie dinner at the residence of the British ambassador and will be joined by celebrities such as Pirates Of The Caribbean and Thor actor Stellan Skarsgard and Ex Machina actress Alicia Vikander.
Despite being pregnant with her third child and her previous bout of morning sickness, the duchess is expected to take part in all events during this tour.
Her condition meant she had to pull out of a number of engagements last year.
Jason Knauf, the Cambridges’ communications secretary, said: “The duke and duchess have asked, as with previous overseas visits, that this tour allow them opportunities to meet as many Swedes and Norwegians as possible.
“Their royal highnesses will meet a wide variety of people, including children and young people, those working in the mental health sector, and leaders in business, academia and scientific research, government, civil society and the creative industries.”
