I think this 'Military School' is kind of a high school/college that puts high emphasis on military preparation, rigor and physical strength/sports.

It is not a problem to attend college in the US or the UK even when you are not the sharpest knife in the drawer, so to say, as long as your parents can pay the horrendous fees (not a problem for the SRF).

If Froilan's family sees no other way but a kind of strict foreign school for him, I'll say that they are the only ones knowing what is best for the boy... let's see!

It is not to us to determine what is "needed" in the case of Don Felipe.

It is not unusual. Willem-Alexander of Orange-Nassau did his secondary education at the Atlantic College in Llantwit Major, Wales. Guillaume of Nassau did his secondary education at Institut Le Rosey in Rolle, Switzerland. Etc. It has nothing to do with perfect relationships or love but with what the parents think/thought may be best for their sons.

From recent reports it seems Froilan needs a serious reality check and I imagine that a U.S. Military school will give that to him. Nobody there will care at all who his family is. He can be yelled at and disciplined and will need to earn the respect of his class.

I believe that in past interviews King W-A mentioned that he and his parents felt they needed a little space from each other during those adolescent years.

Exactly that i mean TLLK saying previously very far away and very in love.
Sometimes if not always the kids (royals or not like W-A) especially at this age need some distance from their parents

That was indeed printed in interviews, W-A was not the world's most dedicated student, and in his teenage years he wanted to get away from the royal life, his future role etc and in Wales he could be a "regular guy"; maybe Felipe JF needs something like that too

Military Academy does emphasis rigor and physical sport but mostly it demands complete obedience to superiors. Discipline is the number one key here. Unless the boy is determined to focus the American Armed Forces as a career, we send our sons to Academy to learn self control, efficiency and total respect. Breaking the rules is not tolerated and the old "washing bathroom floors with toothbrush" was in my time a form of punishment for disrespect and rule breaking. It is many times the last step in trying to correct a young boy's wrong behavior before he really gets into trouble. A lot have escaped jail by attending Academy and having their lives turned around brilliantly. It works well [ in my family] and I know that their anger management programs are the best. The Academies scholastic programs are the very best and each student get many hours of personal teaching on subjects that he does not like or is not good at learning. All in all, a win-win situation for a young man that may need help that we know nothing about. These schools are also noted for not showing any favoritism and there is a code of ethics that surpasses many religions who will look 'the other way' for some. I personally think that this move for F is a wonderful choice is his family deems it necessary.

You seem to mixing up U.S military academies (Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force) and which are extremely competitive undergraduate schools for future military officers and with very rigorous entrance requirements and the many private middle and high schools calling themselves "military academies". Some of them are boarding schools while some are day schools, some are very disciplined and academic but some are just schools for kids that need someone other than their parents to raise them. We don't know which school the young man is going to so speculating on why he is being sent there is useless. Many are designed for young men and women (some are co-ed but not all) that need a strong hand in helping them to grow up.

I hope this will have a good outcome for Froilan and that he'll learn that his behaviour is not how he should behave.

I wonder why Queen Sofia is paying for it, though it's very thoughtful of her to do so. I love how much she cares for her grandchildren, even when they are not behaving at their best she still loves them. She seems to be a very kind and generous woman.

The advantage of being in the US vs. in Europe is that-as another poster has pointed out-no one here is aware of the fact that he is the grandson of a king. No one will be influenced by his Royal connections.
At Sandhurst he would have been among young men of his own social rank. The fact that Froilan has no title is a mere technicality. His father is an aristocrat, his mother an Infanta.
He is a prince in all but name.
It would be fair to say that Sandhurst has extensive experience of educating and reforming young gentlemen from the upper circles of various countries/kingdoms.

Thanks for the information! I thought that the academy accepted younger boys.

In America, Valley Forge Military Academy and Riverside Millersberg Military Academy are the two schools that I know extremely well. Both of these schools hold obedience and discipline as first rule of order. Grades second. Parents know this and expect their child to follow. Yes, some are just wealthy students that live in, but there are also quite a few that need this extra discipline. The official federal government universities {West Point, etc.} are another type altogether. Just money will not get you accepted to those institutions. You need a Letter of Recommendation from Senator or Congressmen along with extremely high grade averages. Then you must serve.

Based upon what I've observed, it appears that Beatrix and Claus were right to have W-A continue his schooling abroad. IMO it gave W-A the break from the royal spotlight and an opportunity to live a more typical student during his adolescent years. Also I'm sure it helped to improve his English skills as well. Wouldn't be surprised if W-A and Maxima give one of their daughters a similar opportunity to study abroad as well.
