The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seem more in love than ever! Prince William and his pregnant wife, Kate Middleton, recently embarked on a four-day royal tour of Sweden and Norway spanning from Tuesday, Jan. 30 through Friday, Feb. 2 — and though the couple was technically working, their trip looked like an adorable babymoon! Scroll down to see everything the royal couple did on their tour!

Day One — Sweden

After arriving in Sweden on Tuesday, Jan. 30, William, 35, and Kate, 36, stepped out at an outdoor skating rink at Stockholm's Vasaparken park to learn more about the popular sport bandy hockey. "Dating back to 1813, the sport of bandy originated in Cambridgeshire, and has now become one of the most popular winter sports in Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, and the US," Kensington Palace explained in a tweet on Tuesday. After chatting with a group of young bandy hockey players, Kate challenged her hubby to a shootout on the ice. Though the sporty princess did score a goal, William won by shooting the ball into the net twice!

A few hours later, Prince George and Princess Charlotte's parents attended a lunch with members of Sweden's royal family including King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, and Prince Daniel. After visiting The Royal Palace in Stockholm, Kate and William were accompanied by Victoria and her husband, Daniel, on a trip to the Nobel Museum. The foursome then walked to the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design.

Then on Tuesday evening, the Cambridges attended a black-tie dinner with Sweden's British ambassador Stefan Lofven, members of the Swedish royal family, representatives from the Swedish government, and even two of Sweden's most popular actors, Stellan Skarsgård and Alicia Vikander. For the special event, Kate wowed in a floral Erdem dress that featured a high neckline and a bold, chartreuse color. Though we're not used to seeing Kate in this hue, it's thought the $2,760 frock's yellow and blue colors were a nod to Sweden's flag.

Day Two — Sweden

On their second day in Sweden, Kate and William again stepped out with Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel to visit Stockholm's Matteusskolan School. During the Wednesday, Jan. 31 royal engagement, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met with groups of children taking part in a mentoring program promoting mental health awareness. Kate was photographed wearing a stunning red and white checkered Catherine Walker coat over a matching Alexander McQueen dress. The expectant mom accessorized the look with earrings by Swedish designer In2Design, burgundy pumps, matching gloves, and a new Chanel bag.

Later on Wednesday, Kate and William stopped by Sweden's Haga Palace to have tea with Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel. During the visit to the Swedish royals' home, Kate and Wills met Victoria and Daniel's two children — Princess Estelle, 5, and Prince Oscar, 1 — who are similar in age to George and Charlotte!

Then, on Wednesday evening, the couple wrapped up their trip to Sweden with an event at the Fotografiska gallery. For the occasion, Kate donned another dress by Erdem, but this time the frock was blue patterned velvet and tea-length. Her husband, William, even matched the Duchess' pretty ensemble by wearing a blue suit and a coordinating tie.

Day Three — Norway

On Thursday, Feb. 1, the couple touched down in Oslo, Norway for the second leg of their royal tour. Their first outing in the country was a walkabout outside Oslo's Royal Palace with Crown Prince Haakon and his wife, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, followed by a luncheon with the Norweigan royals including Prince Haakon's parents, King Harald V and Queen Sonja. Upon arrival, Kate was photographed wearing a blue Catherine Walker coat accessorized with a $320 alpaca fur hat, matching fur-lined gloves, and tall riding boots.

Once inside the palace, Kate removed her coat to show off a stunning, cobalt blue Seraphine maternity dress — sold for $240 — featuring a lace bodice and frilly sleeves. The best part of Kate's look? Her growing baby bump was on full display! According to the Daily Mail, Kate and William actually had to cancel part of their first day in Oslo due to unexpected heavy snow. They were originally scheduled to visit Uppsala airbase but skipped the engagement at the last minute.

On Thursday evening, Kate and William attended the most glamorous event of their royal tour — a black-tie dinner at the Royal Palace in Oslo. For the outing, the Duchess looked beyond gorgeous in a blush pink gown adorned with sparkly embroidery on the neckline and a very on-trend sheer cape overlay. The dress was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, the same woman who created Kate's iconic royal wedding dress back in 2011. Kate accessorized the glam ensemble with a very special piece of jewelry — the diamond bracelet that Queen Elizabeth wore on her 1947 wedding day!

Day Four — Norway

On the final day of their royal tour, Kate and William began Friday, Feb. 2 by stepping out at Hartvig Nissen School to meet the teenage stars of the hit Norwegian drama Skam. While visiting the school — where the series is filmed — the couple chatted with the cast about the show's storylines about relationship difficulties, identity, eating disorders, sexual assault, homosexuality, and mental health issues.

During the outing, Kate looked beautiful in a deep purple Dolce and Gabbana coat with shiny, charcoal-colored buttons. She accessorized the outfit with black tights, black pumps, black gloves, and a matching black clutch. According to People, Kate chatted with a student about her own educational experiences. "I went to a school called Marlborough College and then onto university which is where I met William," she said. "St. Andrews University in Scotland. Miles away, freezing cold. But I can’t complain about that being here. It’s much colder here."

Later on Friday, Kate and William toured the Holmenkollen ski museum before meeting with junior ski jumpers from Norway's national team at the top of Holmenkollen's 440-foot ski jump. During the visit, the duo was bundled up in winter gear to combat Norway's freezing temperatures today. While both Kate and Wills donned cute hats with puff-balls on top, Kate looked extra winter chic in a red and white down coat by Kjus.

While meeting with young skiers, Kate reportedly told one child that her son, George, is already a big fan of winter sports and has learned to ski "but he was just two and a half so was just starting." At one point, the Duchess also playfully hit her hubby, William, with a snowball and he replied, "It's too cold for snowballs!" Following their visit to the Norwegian landmark, Kate and William boarded a flight back home to London — what a successful royal tour!
