The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (William and Kate) are touring Norway and Sweden for the first time, and among visits with the Scandi royals, they’ll also attend a dinner with some Scandi movie royals.

The royal couple are set to have a black tie dinner with none other than actors Stellan Skarsgård and Alicia Vikander among guests.

It is not known if any other Scandinavian actors will be in attendance, but Sweden has certainly selected two of its most recognised actors.

Besides meeting film royalty, William and Kate will meet a variety of people in various industries. They have been invited by Their Majesties King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden to a special luncheon at the Royal Palace of Stockholm, and in Norway will join Their Majesties King Harald V and Queen Sonja at Oslo’s Royal Palace for an official dinner. The couple will also spend time with Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden, and Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, who will join them on a number of their engagements throughout the visit.

The tour will take place between the 30th of January and the 2nd of February, around the same time Alicia Vikander will be attending the Gothenburg Film Festival as a special guest.
