Princess Alexia of the Netherlands is doing the same to Princess Leonor from Spain: She is leaving her home country and moving to Great Britain.

A new chapter begins for Princess Alexia (15). The second eldest daughter of King Willem-Alexander (53) and Máxima of the Netherlands (49) will leave her home after the summer to continue her school education in far away Wales, Great Britain. The royal palace officially announced this on Instagram on Tuesday. The 15-year-old will therefore be a student at the United World College (UWC) of the Atlantic, whose institutions are internationally recognized as renowned elite schools.

As the palace announced, Princess Alexia is aiming for the so-called International Baccalaureate in Great Britain, a globally recognized high school diploma. 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) recently decided to move to the parish of Llantwit Major in Wales. She should start teaching on site in the summer and have the International Baccalaureate in her pocket after two years.
