Prince Daniel Attempts the Most Regal Mannequin Challenge Yet!

Posted on

Taylor Swift has done it. Adele aced it. Even Hillary Clinton got in on the action. Now, the #MannequinChallenge has reached the Swedish royal family!

The Internet’s latest meme, which involves getting a bunch of people together to freeze in various poses mid-action, was attempted by Sweden’s Prince Daniel — and it did not disappoint.

The 24-second video, which was posted by Gen Pep, the prince’s fitness charity which encourages children and young people to live a healthy life, features the royal alongside a few Gen Pep squad members.

Daniel stages a pose while on his cell phone, giving a thumbs up sign. (If you look closely, you’ll see a sweet photo of the prince’s 4-year-old daughter, Princess Estelle, on his phone cover!)

According to the caption on Instagram, the video was shot during a break from short-listing finalists for a fitness gala in January.

This isn’t the first time the royal dad has gotten in on the latest trend. The prince revealed that over the summer, he led his family on a series of “out of control” Pokémon Go hunts.

And Daniel isn’t the only royal family member to decorate their phone with a picture of Estelle. Proud grandmother Queen Silvia‘s cell is decorated with an adorable picture of her royal granddaughter wearing a red ribbon in her hair.
