Sweden’s Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia may have wrapped up their honeymoon in June, but that doesn’t mean they’ve had their fill of romantic getaways.

The royal couple was spotted showing P.D.A. during a trip to the French Riviera on Saturday. Former swimsuit model Sofia, 30, opted to cover up during their beach stroll in a flowing dress while Carl Philip, 36, showed off his toned physique by going shirtless.

The pair were joined on a boat by Carl Philip’s parents, King Carl XVI Gustaf (who, we should note, decided to keep his top on) and Queen Silvia, who wore a white ensemble.

Carl Philip and Sofia’s vacation comes nearly two months after they tied the knot with a grand royal wedding in Stockholm. After exchanging their vows, the pair jetted off on their honeymoon, which reportedly included a stop in Fiji.

It’s been an exciting summer for the Swedish royals. In addition to the wedding, Carl Philip’s sister Princess Madeleine gave birth to a baby boy, Prince Nicolas, just two days after she attended the nuptials. In July, Carl Philip had another reason to celebrate when he won the second STCC race in Falkenberg, Sweden. (And who could forget when he got drenched in champagne after the win?)
