Swedish royalty celebrate adorable Prince Alexander’s lowkey first day of school


Six-year-old Prince Alexander has started his education at one of the oldest schools in Stockholm, Sweden.

The Prince is the eldest child of Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Phillip, who is the only son of the current King of Sweden Carl XVI Gustaf.

Prince Carl Phillip is fourth in line to the throne, after his oldest sister Crown Princess Victoria, his niece Princess Estelle and nephew Prince Oscar.

Prince Alexander will be attending a school called Djurgårdsskolan in Stockholm.

It is a small school with only 94 students and has not been a profit-making school since 1993.

Activities the young royal can look forward to at the school are theatre, dance, piano, guitar, yoga, gymnastics and basketball.

The school symbol is a peacock on account of a peacock running into a school building many years ago.

Princess Estelle is second-line to the throne and made Swedish history by being the first female born with the right to inherit the throne that cannot be superseded by a male heir.

Her birth also made history as the first child born to a female heir.

The Princess carried out her first royal duty at two-years-old when she inaugurated a walking trail.

This summer, she celebrated the National Day of Sweden by wearing Sweden’s national dress, called the Sverigedräkten.

The Sverigedräkten are folk dresses which were popularised by the current Queen of Sweden, Queen Silvia, who started the royal tradition of wearing them in 1983.

It became the official national dress of Sweden in 2004.
