It's not every day you find yourself shaking hands with a man wearing little else than some strategically-placed antlers.

But that's exactly what happened when the royal couple paid a visit to a circus centre in Stockholm County, east central Sweden.
They'd been invited to see a show that promised that the audience would be "laughing at the sick humour, admiring the beautiful choreography and be shocked by the total lack of common sense".
Daniel - fairly new to royal life - looked a little puzzled at times, but Victoria took it all in her stride.
Her radiant smile never faltered for a moment as she shook hands with the colorful character, Ronnie "Little Animal" Nilsson.
The performer - part of Burnt Out Punks, a group of artists, who describe their act as a 'circus freak show' - charmed the royal visitors, at one point having them both in stitches.
Later, the couple were treated to some of his routine, which involved fire juggling and him setting his antlers alight.
