Princess Alexia de Orange, 15 years old, and second daughter of Kings Guillermo and Máxima of the Netherlands, will study the two Baccalaureate courses at the same British school as Leonor, the Princess of Asturias.
This is United World College of the Atlantic, located in the Welsh town of Llantwit, and will follow the International Baccalaureate, a degree recognized on a European scale.
The Information Service of the Dutch Royal House confirmed this on Tuesday, and recalled that the sovereign also completed his education there between 1983 and 1985. Today he is one of its patrons.
Princess Elisabeth of Belgium, the oldest of the new generation of heirs to the throne in Europe, has also passed through the same classrooms and is now continuing her military training in her country.
Princess Alexia of Orange is currently studying at the Sorghvliet Institute in The Hague, a Christian-inspired public secondary school that is also attended by her two sisters: the heiress, Amalia, and the little girl, Ariane.
Alexia is a diligent student who likes to sing and dance, and is fond of social networks, something that has already caused her some problems.
In June 2019, she appeared at a home karaoke with some friends that was posted on the short video app TikTok, owned by Chinese tech company BtyeDance.

In 2018, the princess had her own account on Instagram dedicated to fashion and without her face appearing.
There he published photos combining various pieces of clothing, and it could be seen that he was shopping in stores such as Zara and H&M, as well as wearing brands such as Gap or Nike.
At Atlantic College they do not wear a uniform, and the ideology of the center encourages to avoid the exhibition of brands and to use useful clothes for outdoor activities and the rain.
The school is located in the medieval castle of St. Donat, from the 12th century, and the ideology of its founder, the German educator Kurt Hahn, emphasizes respect for others and responsibility towards the community, as well as the importance of democracy to sustain them both.
It is one of the first educational establishments in the world to follow an international curriculum, and is also known for its support for sustainability.
It has about 350 students from about 90 countries.
Hahn in turn founded Gordonstoun boarding school in Scotland, which was attended by Charles, the Prince of Wales.
