The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have begun their Scandinavian tour by learning about an unusual form of hockey called bandy.
William and Kate watched the popular activity in a snow-covered park in the Swedish capital, Stockholm.
The game involves 11 players a side on a rink similar in size to a hockey pitch.
The royal couple started their day with a traditional toast with a hot drink carried in a flask in a briefcase known as a "Bandy Portfolio".
They wore bobble hats and winter coats as they watched two teams playing in the Vasaparken open area in sub-zero temperatures.
William applauded as a goal was slammed home by one player and watched intently as the youngsters began practising penalties.
