A palace spokesperson said:

"The four-day tour will also include time learning more about what makes Scandinavian culture so unique, from attitudes towards young people and mental health in schools to the importance of being active and spending time outdoors, whatever the temperature may be.

The spokesperson further added, "The Duke and Duchess are keen to experience a taste of the Scandinavian way of life for themselves, and to see how people of all generations battle the elements to make the most of their surroundings, whether ice-skating in Stockholm's local parks, or skiing off-piste in the hills that surround Oslo." 

During the tour, the husband and wife will also enjoy dinner with award-winning Scandinavian actress Alicia Vikander.

The Prince, currently third in line to the British throne, and his pregnant wife will be welcomed by members of the royal family in both the countries. Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia will organize a special luncheon in their honor, while in Norway, they will join King Harald V and Queen Sonja for an official dinner at Oslo's royal palace.
