Sweden’s Royal Family has shared two adorable new portraits of Prince Oscar to mark his seventh birthday.
Oscar, Duke of Skåne, is the youngest child of the future Swedish queen, Crown Princess Victoria, 45, and her husband Prince Daniel, 49.
The first of the two images, shared to the Royal Household’s Instagram account yesterday, showed the prince posing with the family’s Cavapoo, Rio, on a cream sofa at their home of Haga Palace in Haga Park, Solna.
In the second photograph, Oscar was joined by his sister Princess Estelle, 11. The pair were captured sitting back-to-back on a staircase as they grinned at the camera.
Oscar opted for grey jeans and a brown cardigan with black shoes. His sister looked equally smart in a white top and a houndstooth skirt.

The pictures were posted with the caption: ‘Prince Oscar turns seven today. Congratulations!’ when translated from Swedish to English.
The two images appeared to be from the same photoshoot shared on Princess Estelle’s birthday last month.
Royal fans rushed to comment on the images, with one person writing: ‘Charming and lovely Prince Oscar who turns 7 today!! Happy birthday to you!’
Another said: ‘Sweden’s cutest!!!! Big congratulations to the prince,’ while a third added: ‘Big congratulations to you our little prince.’
Prince Osckar was born at the Karolinska University Hospital in the Swedish capital of Stockholm at 8.28pm on 2 March 2016.

He is third in line to the throne after his mother and elder sister, Princess Estelle, who was born in February 2012.
Addressing the media after his son’s birth, Crown Prince Daniel said he had tears streaming down his face when his child was born – just as he had done during the birth of Estelle.
‘Everyone is obviously very happy,’ Prince Daniel said, according to Expressen. ‘I haven’t had time to feel yet how it feels to be a father of two, but it obviously feels good.’
He then added: ‘Estelle is of course really enthusiastic and happy about being a big sister.’
