Princess Madeleine reveals what she's been up to with her kids during maternity leave

Princess Madeleine’s maternity leave has included some time at the stables. Over the weekend, the Swedish Princess posted a photo featuring two of her kids spending time with horses. Attached to a collage of images shared on her Instagram account, the mom-of-three simply penned: “❤️🐴❤️.” Royal fans seem undecided as to whether it is Prince Nicolas or Princess Leonore pictured riding the horse. Meanwhile a third photo shows Madeleine's newborn daughter  Princess Adrienne resting in a stroller while a horse peered down.
