We've been seeing a lot of the Swedish royal family this holiday season. First, they got all glammed (and tiara'd) up for the annual Nobel Prize Ceremony; and not long after that, the family's official Instagram account shared two photos of little Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar all dressed up for St. Lucia Day.

Now, we're getting a look at some holiday crafting with Crown Princess Victoria's family. Along with her husband, Prince Daniel, Victoria helps her two kids create seasonal decorations, from festive potted plants to fruit-based ornaments and ribbon-lined wreaths.

The video (which you can watch in full above) is set in a wintry greenhouse, complete with a few coniferous trees in the background. The family is gathered around a thoughtfully appointed table, filled with fruits, plants, pinecones and more ready to be arranged into Christmas decorations.

We see Princess Estelle dress up a potted plant with some aesthetic moss and Prince Oscar adorn an orange with ribbons and pushpins. After Princess Estelle puts the finishing touches on a wreath, tying the last knot with pride, her father hangs it on the ceiling of the greenhouse.

It's more or less what you'd expect of your average family decorating sesh—except a whole lot more staged (we don't all have professional stylists to create a holiday platonic ideal for our crafting pleasure).

But as Claire Foy's Queen Elizabeth often reprises in The Crown, the people don't want reality from their royals. They want a picture-perfect fantasy, and that's what the Swedes are giving them.
