The Swedish royal family are hot on the Cambridges' heels.

Crown Princess Victoria (40) went for a decidedly casual look on Wednesday, dressing uncharacteristically down in a pair of bootcut jeans and a navy satin bomber jacket, wearing her hair in her signature slicked back bun. The mother-of-two to little Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar previously revealed she feels bound by duty to her country, and makes appearances at pubic engagements as often as possible.

She was joined by her husband Prince Daniel, Duke of Västergötland, a former personal trainer and CEO of a chain of gyms, who was dressed in contrast with a tweed suit. The couple, who wed in 2010, were on hand to mark the Swedish Outdoor Associations 125th anniversary celebrations at Haga Park in Stockholm.

Much like Kate Middleton and Prince William's mental health advocacy, Victoria and Daniel have championed their own children's cause for their charity Generation Pep, which aims to "spread knowledge and engage both people and organizations in a joint effort to make it easier for children and young people to live a healthy life."

Earlier this week, they released a video of their five-year-old daughter Estelle showing off her impressive somersault skills, which her father successfully mimics. There's something of a baby boom among the Swedish royals: Princess Madeleine (35) has announced she's expecting her third child with husband Chris O'Neill (43), while her sister-in-law Princess Sofia welcomed her second child with Prince Carl Philip - Prince Gabriel last month.

Madeleine broke the news on her Facebook page, writing: "Chris and I are thrilled to announce that I am expecting. We look forward to four becoming five!"
