The royal couple attended a state dinner at the Viimsi Artium in Tallinn – which was hosted by Estonian President Alar Karis and Mrs. Sirje Karis.

Meanwhile, King Carl XVI Gustaf was smart in a black tuxedo – which had his military medals proudly on show.
Earlier this week, the couple’s grandson Prince Oscar of Sweden stole the show during a balcony appearance as the royals gathered to celebrate the King’s birthday.
The Prince, seven, took a leaf out of the UK’s Prince Louis’s book as he looked restless during a public appearance on the balcony at the courtyard of the Royal Palace in Stockholm as King Carl XVI Gustaf turned 77.
The royal appeared with his mother Crown Princess Victoria, 45, father Prince Daniel, 49, and sister Princess Estelle, 11. He was also joined by Queen Silvia, Princess Sofia and Prince Gabriel.
Oscar, who turned seven at the beginning of March, was pictured taking shelter in his mother’s blue coat as the family waved to royal fans.
As he stood towards the front of the balcony, he put his head in his hands and began brushing his hair away from his face with a look of anguish in antics that were reminiscent of Prince Louis’s cheeky balcony appearance to mark the late Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee last June.
