Prince Christian and Princess Isabella, second and third in line to the throne of Denmark have returned to class following two months of home schooling by their parents, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary. This was confirmed on Monday by the Danish Royal Court to the magazine “Billedbladet”.

The Royal Court stated: “We can confirm that Prince Christian and Princess Isabella are back at Tranegårdskolen after the school has today opened for students from 6th to 9th class”.

This means that Prince Christian is back with his classmates in the 8th grade while Princess Isabella is with her 6th grade friends. Isabella and Christian’s younger siblings Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent attend second grade at the same school and had already returned to class.

In late March the Crown Prince family shared some of their thoughts on the corona pandemic situation. The future king of Denmark, Prince Christian, took the lead and said: “Well, I miss seeing my friends and spending more time practicing sports and being more active.”

Princess Isabella said: “I miss my friends the most, but I actually I think home-schooling is quite fun”.  However, their little brother did not agree with that statement at all. Prince Vincent clearly said: “I think that home-schooling is really boring.” The statement made the whole family laugh, before Princess Josephine concluded: “I have used Facetime to talk to my friends and it is very nice”.

Even though the schools have reopened, it will not be a normal day for a while and there are many new rules to live up by at school in connection with the coronavirus pandemic.

The Crown Prince couple’s four children had started school in Switzerland in the Alpine town of Verbier at the start of 2020. Until the coronavirus crisis changed everything, Christian, Isabella, Josephine and Vincent were pupils in the winter school at Lemania Verbier International School. The family returned to Denmark following the outbreak of the virus in March.
