Prince Oscar is loving fall!

Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria‘s shared a photo of her 8-month-old son playing in the leaves outside the family’s royal home at Stockholm’s Haga Palace on Friday.

The royal baby is third in line to the Swedish throne, after his mother and older sister, Princess Estelle, 4.

In the sweet photo, released by the palace, the young prince happily poses for court photographer Kate Gabor.

The fashionable prince keeps warm in a quilted $200 double-breasted coat from Burberry, according to the Swedish journal Svenskdam.

A royal love of leaves runs in the family — big sister Princess Estelle posed for a similar seasonal shot in 2012 at just 8 months old.

And Princess Madeleine shared a cute snap of Oscar and Estelle’s cousin, Princess Leonore, playing in the leaves in a London park.

“The fall is here!” Madeleine captioned the candid shot taken in October.

We’ve always been quite close – even though I’ve lived abroad – but when you have kids, it’s an extra connection, Madeleine told PEOPLE of the bond she shares with her siblings.

“And the little cousins, Leonore and Estelle, they’re very close – they’re more like sisters,” she adds. “Victoria and I try very hard to make it so they really can see each other and play and have fun.

“Cousins are great – they are your friends, but they’re family. They can support each other.”
