Unlike most of their British counterparts, the Swedish royals have started to embrace the idea of having individual Instagram accounts.

While Harry, Meghan, Will, and Kate all communicate with the public via the official Kensington Palace social media channels, Princess Madeleine and her brother Prince Carl Philip both have personal Instagram handles, where they share not only portraits and pictures from official royal events, but also candid family photos.

Earlier today, Carl Philip, who is fourth in line to the Swedish throne, shared a sweet photo of his two sons, 2-year-old Prince Alexander and 11-month-old Prince Gabriel.

He captioned the candid, "Sommar på Solliden????," which means Summer at Solliden, the summer residence of the Swedish royal family in Borgholm. How sweet!

It's been a busy week of news for the Swedish royals. On Tuesday, some of the family's crown jewels were stolen in a high-speed motorboat heist. In total, two crowns and an orb were taken from a cathedral in Strangnas around midday.

"It is not possible to put an economic value on this, it is invaluable items of national interest," police spokesperson Thomas Agnevik said.

On a happier note, Philip's sister Princess Madeleine announced on Thursday that she and her family are moving to Florida later this fall.

"Princess Madeleine has a great commitment to children's rights and will continue working with the World Childhood Foundation and, through the move, be able to focus more on the activities in the United States," reads a statement from the palace.
