As heir to the Norwegian throne, Crown Prince Haakon is accustomed to the airs and graces of court life.

But the dashing royal threw formalities aside when he jetted off for a sun-kissed family holiday in South Africa.

Haakon, 43, was spotted locked in a steamy embrace with his wife, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, as the pair frolicked in the waves for a spot of surfing.

The famously private royal family, including Queen Sonja, King Harald V, and their daughter Princess Martha Louise, plus the royal grandchildren, escaped the chilly Scandinavian winter to celebrate the monarch’s 80th birthday in Cape Town last month.

The royal cohort, including all the children, are believed to have spent 10 days all together, where they soaked up the sun and visited the prison Nelson Mandela, who met the monarch on a number of occasions, was imprisoned on Robben Island.

The family also took surfing lessons – despite recent warnings of nearby shark attacks.
