Royals visit bargain superstore

The Swedish King is celebrating 40 years on the throne this year, and as a result is travelling around the country as part of the celebrations.

Today the royal couple paid a visit to the giant supermarket Gekås in Ullared, a mecca for customers looking to find a bargain.

Located in Halland, in the south of Sweden, it attracts over 12,000 customers a day, and even more turned up on Thursday to see the King and Queen walk through the aisles, news agency TT reports.

But their visit was short, just 30 minutes, and the couple did not take the time to buy a few items on the way.
