Yes, very good. Lena. I thought I'd send a pm to King about this but then I noticed that he went away. Sarcasm is so hard to put into words. Lingua franca pour les corps diplomatiques! I like that first rule. I just meant Sophie because of her familiarity with the media and the fact that she wasn't born a royal. Yes, sue the German newspapers! I'll have to remember that French idea. By the way, for those of you who don't know(which unfortunately includes a lot of native born English speakers) sangfroid is an French word in that it has been used in English enough times that it isn't unfamiliar. In fact, I seem to recall it being in one of my vocabulary books back in high school. But I was just making a joke. And for some reason, if that photo of Victoria shows up some years down the road at a particularly regal time, I know I will be thinking of a song by Queen.

is this the lady that you saw in Wilmington ? It says here this lady is CP Victoria's advisor, and that the two gentlemen are bodyguards.

I don´t know, where I should post this, but does anybody know if Victoria aims to get an university degree. Maybe I´m wrong, but I think that all other crown princes (prince Charles?) have one.

her yale semester was really only a few semesters, far away from the 4 years undergrad courses they have got. i suppose she really doesnt have a degree then yet. didnt know she had never finished in sweden. but remeber: legastenic (is that how you write it in english??) cases are having a hard time at university, has nothing to do with intelligents...
still, looks rather odd not to have a degree nowadays....

I dont think she has a degree.
Her studies in France didnt result in a degree and she didnt get one at Yale either as she was there as a special student. The only things she got was a diploma =)

Wonder what she's saying here

I would really like it, if she would study a little bit (or a little bit more->degree?) economy at university.
You are very right in that, Lena.
She is to my knowledge the only person among the Crown Person set, who has no degree. Why, is what I wonder ?

I guess her dyslexia is the reason...but I think with tutors she could straighten out this deficit...

The reason Crown Princess Victoria has no university degrees (just like her father), is that the Royal Court and the Royal House have always thought it best that the Monarch and the Heir who is to become Monarch one day, should be well-educated but general-knowledge persons. Meaning, they can have special interests (which both she and The King does), but it is considered best for the future Monarch to prepare for their job by attending, in Victoria’s case, Queen school since the day of their graduation from school when they take on a larger role in the country and the family.

This means that they get academic studies (she has diplomas) in some areas, and supplement it with studies at for the Government, the Parliament, government agencies, the defence, organisations, the trade and industry/business world, unions, the EU delegation, the UN etc. etc.

I personally think that Victoria couldn’t have a better foundation to stand on with her both broad and deep knowledge in the back.

I understand that it is important that CP Victoria prepare to one day become Queen and takes part in special programs to help with this. However, I really think she should at the very least have gotten a university degree in something like political science or international affairs. Surely she could have gotten a degree before attending so-called 'Queen School', especially since it will most likely be awhile before she ascenes to the throne. I am in university myself, and I find it ironic that so many people my age out there today cannot or struggle to afford to pay for university, that the CP who can more than afford it but does not have a degree. I know the CP has studied at Yale and in France, but still I think she should have gotten a degree.

The other plus of not being 100% educated with a degree, imho, is that it could be said (and please take the following with moderation) that an element of naivety need not be replaced with fully educated reasoning. Its not as well worded as I hoped, but I hope I get the impression across .....

That i can tell you i do not know her mayself but sure it can be a possibility
maybe take a class one at the time for a longer period to get a degree
I have freinds that do so work then some school then work again, sometimes taking evening classes or summer classes or do it at a distance.

you do not have to go back to school as a mature student
is you then means the age 40+

my class have many students at the age of 28 - 33 we have a few older and many younger most of us are about 23 - 26 maybe I am 25 and have one term left
