Prince William, Kate get warm welcome in chilly Norway - in pictures 

The royal couple are currently on a tour of Scandinavia and were greeted by Norway's Crown Prince and Princess

Britain's Prince William and his wife Kate flew to Norway on the final leg of a Nordic trip on Thursday, and stepped out onto a red carpet laid out over a blanket of snow.

They were greeted by the country's Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit at Oslo's Gardermoen Airport and went on to meet well-wishers waving Union Jacks in the winter cold.

William and Kate - expecting their third child in April - toured a children's sculpture park at the start of their two-day trip and were due to visit the Ski Museum, dedicated to Norway's national sport.

They were also expected to meet students to discuss mental health - an issue that William and his brother Harry have campaigned on in the past.
