SHE has already courted controversy by marrying her fitness trainer.
Now Sweden’s first in line to the throne is rumoured to be making an unlikely move to live on the Costa del Sol.
A modern-day Edward and Mrs Simpson, Crown Princess Victoria, 34, is rumoured to have bought a stunning four million euro home in Nerja.
She and her commoner husband Daniel Westling, 37, are said to have ‘spent a fortune’ renovating the property overlooking the town’s emblematic Balcon de Europa.
The four bedroom townhouse, which sits on a cliff above a beach, has its own swimming pool and amazing views.
“They are a very private couple but I understand they intend to spend some of the winter months here,” revealed a local shopkeeper.
“It will be very good for Nerja,” she added.
Meanwhile, local English barber John Morgan explained: “I don’t know if anyone has seen the princess yet, but the house has been finished and I think the valets have been coming in and out getting it ready.
“The house is absolutely beautiful, a really massive place in a great spot.”
But not everyone is convinced yet that their new neighbours are royalty.
“I don’t know anything about a princess. I just know it is a really nice Swedish family moving in,” said an employee at nearby Hotel Carabeo.
Victoria fell out with her father after marrying Westling last year.
The couple, who met after she received treatment for an eating disorder in 2002, are now expecting their first child.
When contacted by the Olive Press, a spokesman from the Swedish palace would neither confirm nor deny the rumours.
“I don’t know anything about that,” she said.
