The two-and-a-half-year-old Swede, daughter to Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, began school on Monday at the Äventyret pre-school in Danderyd, just outside of Stockholm.
Swarmed by reporters, Victoria said that the royal family chose the school because it was recommended by close friends.
"It will be nice for Estelle to be at school with her friends," she said.
