On it you can see the second oldest daughter of King Willem-Alexander (54) and Máxima of the Netherlands (50), fully packed in torn jeans and a black and red checked jacket, smiling at the camera.

The palace writes: “Princess Alexia is traveling to the United World College of the Atlantic in Llantwit Major in Wales. There she will complete her International Baccalaureate over the next two years.” This school leaving certificate is an internationally recognized high school diploma.

Princess Leonor also goes to the same school

at the beginning of March the Royal Palace announced that the 16-year-old will continue her education at the United World College (UWC) of the Atlantic. The UWC is a renowned elite school across national borders.

The Dutch woman is not alone with this project. Also Princess Leonor (15), daughter of the Spanish royal couple Felipe VI. (53) and Letizia (48) have also decided to move to the parish of Llantwit Major in Wales to do their high school diploma.
