Princess Estelle, who will turn eight on Sunday, got acquainted with the organ at the Storkyrkan (or Great Church) in Stockholm on Monday. The Royal Court said the purpose of the trip was for Princess Estelle to learn more about the organ.
Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Estelle were welcomed by Cathedral Chaplain Ulf Lindgren before the young royal saw the organ’s 3500 pipes and explore some of those pipes – one of which is over five metres long. She and the Crown Princess saw inside the organ where they were able to view the Gustavian facade from the inside and see how the organ’s parts connect to one another.
The Royal Court released images and a video of the future queen at the church with her mother where Estelle got the chance to try her hand at playing the organ after some instruction by organist Mattias Wager.
Princess Estelle has been invited to the church numerous times to learn more about Stockholm’s cathedral.
The Storkyrkan is where Estelle’s parents, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel married in June 2010 and her grandparents, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia married in 1976.
