Even royal moms can’t help but share family vacation photos!

On Thursday, Sweden’s Princess Madeleine, 33, posted new pictures of her adorable children vacationing in the Maldives – and hinted that they had encountered unwanted paparazzi attention.

“Family time, sadly interrupted,” she wrote on her Facebook page. “What a pity we weren’t just asked for photos, because here are some sweet ones.”

In one photo, Princess Leonore, who turns 2 on February 20, is pictured with an ice cream-covered mouth.

And her baby brother, 7-month-old Prince Nicolas, who was christened last October, also appears in the sweet snaps – proudly showing off his toothless grin.

The children, along with their mom and financier dad Chris O’Neill, 41, fled the chill of winter around their central London home to arrive in the Indian Ocean island resort earlier this week.

The family flew in (with a nanny, the Swedish newspaper Expresssen reports) via Malé, the Maldives’ capital, and then went by sea to the Swedish-owned Soneva Fushi resort.

There, the family is enjoying a split-level private villa with its own private beach, swimming pool, gym – and even a personal concierge to make their $6,865-per-night stay as smooth as possible.

Others who have visited the island to recharge their batteries and enjoy balmy 86-degree Maldivian sunshine include Madonna, Paul McCartney, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and businessman Richard Branson, a friend of proprietor Eva Malmström.

Villa 41, where Princess Madeleine’s party is staying, according to the Swedish journal Svenskdam, nestles among tropical jungle greenery, with snorkeling only steps away. As dusk approaches, it’s said to enjoying the best view of the sunset on the island.

Resort representatives do not comment about island activities, referring reporters to Soneva Fushi’s informal motto, “No news, no shoes.”
