    There has been plenty of royalty spotted in Rio watching the 2016 Summer Olympics, but Queen Silvia of Sweden takes the gold medal when it comes to cell phone cases.

    The queen was spotted Friday at the equestrian center alongside King Karl Gustaf, snapping pictures with a phone covered with a large, adorable image of her granddaughter, Princess Estelle.

    The 4-year-old is the first grandchild for the king and queen. She apparently is the apple of her grandmother’s eye, as her 5-month-old baby brother, Prince Oscar, hasn’t found a place just yet on the back of his grandmother’s phone.

    There’s no word on what type of cell phone cover the king may have, although he seems to have an affinity for taking photos the old-fashioned way with a point-and-shoot camera.
