With two royal families living in the same city, one very important event should be on the calendar: a playdate!

Sweden’s Princess Madeleine currently lives in London with her husband, British-American businessman Chris O’Neill, and their two children, Princess Leonore, 2½, and son Prince Nicolas, 15 months.

London, of course, is also home to another royal family of four: Prince William, Princess Kate and their little ones, Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 16 months.

With similarly-aged children, we think a royal playdate is in order!

“I would love [a playdate],” Princess Madeleine exclusively told PEOPLE at the World Childhood Foundation USA ThankYou Gala in New York City.

Madeleine and Kate, both 34, have more than just their royal brood in common. They both devote time and effort to important causes involving children all over the world.

Madeleine works on behalf of vulnerable children with the World Childhood Foundation. And Kate has made major efforts in erasing the stigma of children’s mental health.

And although they haven’t met yet, Madeleine is delighted by the idea of joining forces with Kate.

“I’m sure we will cross paths – and who knows what we will do when we do!” she says.

With two active toddlers to chase after, the royals better wear some comfy shoes.

“We try to do a lot of activities because my little Leonore, she has lots of energy, so we have to keep her stimulated and busy,” Madeleine tells PEOPLE of her day-to-day routine as a busy mom of two.

And Leonore has plenty of experience when it comes to playdates. The Swedish princess is just one of several young royals running around the palace.

Madelene’s sister Crown Princess Victoria and her brother Prince Carl Philip both welcomed newborns earlier this year. Victoria’s son Prince Oscar was born in March, and Carl Philip’s son Prince Alexander was born in April.

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

“And the little cousins, Leonore and Estelle (Victoria’s 4-year-old daughter), 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.”
