Project Princess

what do you think the new commoner princesses had to learn from her engagement until their wedding? we all know that they had to learn protocol, some of them new languages and history... let's post any general assumptions on what we think their schedules were during the engagement period and their preparation as princesses and particular skills that particular princesses had to gain to be a princess...

to start and to add my two cents, i know princess letizia was taught "aristocratic english" and history of spain. there were rumours on that she took hunt lessons, but that was never confirmed. it was also said that she visited the palaces belonging to the royal house to learn about their facilities and their history and that she had a notebook with her all the time and kept asking the people things to write them down... :) which i thought it was a cute detail and showing a lot of commitment. there was also a little introduction to wines, how to taste them, names and procedences...

of course, she was also taught protocol and i wouldn't be surprised if she had some kind of lesson on international organisations and international politics.

I think new ones would be taught manners, such as how to stand, walk, hold yourself in public. Also, one would be taught how to take good pictures, how to smile, how to speak - anunciatjion...How to put outfits together (that look nice), how to sit up, how to eat - which utensils are used for what, how to drink and hold their wine - red or white, ettiquete...ah! there are soo many new things for a new princess to learn!! :)

By the way, Carlota, great thread! :)

I think they all receive personal stylists so I don't think they need to learn that. But everything else, yes. :)

She was probably given lessons on how to write proper correspondence, too, and the appropriate response for the occasion, along with what kinds of stationery to use (correspondence cards, letter sheets, etc.). I'm sure she has a secretary to answer her letters for her but in case she has to respond personally, this would be good to know.

Maxima was tutored by some professors, among them prof. Victor Halberstadt (who was the chairman of one of the bilderberg conferences), mostly about dutch history & society and dutch social and political organs and traditions.
Mrs L. Gaarland, lady in waiting of HM The Queen, who now acompanies Maxima most of the times, probably instructed her on royal customs.

The Countess of Wessex certainly took to this pursuit. She's like Annie Oakley when she has a gun...
