Princess Estelle joins the förskoleklass (pre-school) at the exclusive Campus Manilla’s (Manillaskolan) primary school at Djurgården in Stockholm, with about 24 students per class.

High school students accompanied the new students to the playground for a brief assembly, with the Head Teacher giving a speech and singing the national anthem.

Manillaskolan’s primary school has around 500 students from Sweden’s richest families.

The school year in Sweden begins in mid-August and finishes at the beginning of June.

Princess Estelle is the first member of the Swedish Royal Family to attend Campus Manilla, as it is a new school founded in 2013 by property magnate Knute Pousette.
