Kensington Palace announced the visit on Tuesday, and said the royals would be visiting in “early 2018” at the request of the British Foreign Office.
“This is something exciting for Great Britain and Sweden's relationship. We're looking forward to it!” the British Ambassador to Sweden, David Cairns, wrote on Twitter.
