The adorable youngster, who is the daughter of the Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, Duke of Västergötland, is said to have a love of dancing, and has been attending the prestigious dance school Base23 in Östermalm in Stockholm.

According to Swedish newspaper Expressen, the four-year-old has been attending classes once a week and is always taken to the classes by one of her royal parents. Prince Daniel has previously said that his daughter "likes to dance," and the little princess is thought to be taking part in the 'BaseKids' course for children ages three to ten.
