Princess Leonor of Spain
Your first day of school in Wales is upon us
In a few weeks, Princess Leonor of Spain will start school at UWC Atlantic College in Wales. A new phase of life begins for the heir to the Spanish throne.
The new school year begins on 30 August 2021 at UWC Atlantic College in Wales. Two princesses will start school this year: Princess Alexia of Orange-Nassau, 16, and Princess Leonor of Spain, 15, will start their schooling in the UK.
Leonor is expected to travel to Wales the day before, on 29 August 2021, to familiarize herself with her new environment. After their arrival, the students are divided into eight school buildings, in which four of them share a room. Very different nationalities will be represented, reveals the portal “Dana Press”.
Princess Leonor: She will soon be studying in Wales
King Felipe, 53, and Queen Letizia of Spain, 48, are unlikely to accompany their eldest daughter to the school door. Many of the students go to school for their first day on their own. Classes at UWC Atlantic College are from 8:00 to 13:00. Before then, we have breakfast together. For Princess Leonor, this is a completely different teaching system than what she knew from her previous school in Spain. The first few days will certainly be very exciting and exciting for the heir to the Spanish throne.
However, the fact that Leonor is now studying abroad also means that she will no longer attend all public gatherings of the Spanish royal family. Just a few days ago, she and her sister, Princess Sophia, 14, made their first appearance together without their parents. However, the Royal is expected to return to its home country by the Spanish national holiday at the latest on 12 October.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia pay more than 89,000 euros in school fees
Leonor is one of five Spanish candidates accepted by UWC Atlantic College. In total, over 500 applications were received from Spain. Most of the students received a scholarship, both King Felipe and Queen Letizia, as well as Princess Alexia’s parents, King William Alexander, 54, and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, 50, paid the tuition of £ 76,500 (approximately € 89,500) for their own daughters.
