FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL FOR PRINCE CHRISTIAN OF DENMARK

Prince Christian of Denmark, who will be six in October, and is second in line to the Danish throne, has started his first day of school at Tranegaardsskolen, a state school.  This is the first time that a royal in direct succession to the Danish throne will be attending a state school.  Christian’s  parents, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, accompanied their son to school and posed for photographers.   The Crown Princess remembered her first day of school saying that, “It was a big moment . . . something I was looking forward to so much.”  Prince Christian did not mind the attention from the photographers and reporters and even told them that he packed his school bag himself.

Prince Christian’s first day of school was reminiscent of Infanta Sofia of Spain’s first day of school in September of last year.  She and her older sister, Infanta Leonor, posed for photographs as well with their parents, Felipe and Letizia, the Prince and Princess of the Asturias, at the girls’ school, Santa Maria de los Rosales in Madrid.  Enjoy the photos below of  Christian of Denmark and Leonor and Sofia of Spain going to school.
