The 14-year-old Princess of Orange, Catharina-Amalia (commonly just referred to as Amalia) may be studying abroad in China in the not too distant future according to the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.
The daughter of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima has been studying Chinese in school for a few years and may finish out her final years of secondary school in the country. Reportedly, she would attend the UWC in Changshu which is a so-called “branch” of the Welsh school, Atlantic College, where her father studied in the 1980s during his secondary education. The Princess would begin studying there in 2019.
Princess Amalia currently attends Christelijk Gymnasium Sorghvliet in The Hague where she began during the 2015-2016 school year. Her younger sister, 12-year-old Princess Alexia also attends the school. Alexia enrolled at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. Amalia and Alexia’s younger sister, ten-year-old Princess Ariane currently studies at the public primary school Bloemcampschool in Wassenaar. She is expected to follow her older sisters to Christelijk Gymnasium Sorghvliet when she begins her secondary education in a few years.
There has been no confirmation from the Royal House of the Netherlands regarding her future studies. If Her Royal Highness does indeed enrol at UWC in Changshu next year, we are likely not to get any confirmation until a few months before school is set to begin.
Princess Amalia and the rest of her family will appear for their annual winter photo session at the end of this month in Lech, Austria. The Dutch Royal Family has a deal with the press that they will appear for two official photo sessions (one in the summer and the other in the winter) per year. This is in exchange for privacy during the rest of the year when they are not on official engagements.
