thank you for the great list
regarding Frederik, not sure that it took more time, from his Wikipedia page
"In 1989, the Crown Prince began to study for an academic degree, when he began a course in Political Science at Aarhus University. This included a year at Harvard University (1992–1993) under the name of Frederik Henriksen, studying political science. He then took up a position for three months with the Danish UN mission in New York in 1994. In 1995 Crown Prince Frederik obtained his MSc degree in Political Science from Aarhus University. He completed the course in the prescribed number of years with an exam result above average. His final paper was an analysis on the foreign policy of the Baltic States, which he had visited several times during his studies"

He didn't study to get a degree. He would also have not passed them in all likelihood.

The same thing happened with his father and later with his nephews - they studied at university but didn't sit exams or apply to get a degree.

It seems that Estella Taylor also attends St. Thomas’s in Battersea like Prince George and Maud Windsor as this photo from Eloise’s Twitter account suggests (I believe it’s not a fake account whilst it is public and not private there are other photos that one wouldn’t have taken from a public domain). The school seems to be a family favourite - I wonder if it was the Taylors who recommended it to the Cambridges considering that their girls are a lot older.

“ 'Elitist' dating app for ex-private school pupils nicknamed Tind-rah crowns Kate Middleton's alma mater Marlborough College as having 'the best-looking students'”


Quote:
An elitist dating app has crowned Marlborough College which has Kate Middleton and Samantha Cameron as former pupils as having 'the best looking students'.

Toffee, nicknamed Tind-rah, is the world's first dating app aimed exclusively at those who went to private school in the hope to unite people with 'similar backgrounds'.

The app, which costs £4.99 a month, was criticised as 'classist hate crime' when it was launched in April..

The app is fitted with similar functions to other dating apps such as Tinder and Bumble - users are given the option of swiping right to 'like' a member or left to indicate that they are not interested.

Crown Prince Olav of Norway graduated from the Norwegian Military Academy in 1924. He went to Oxford for further study. He attended Balliol College, where he studied political science, history, and economics.

Both Bernhard and Maurits studied economics. As the Dutch still have a dual system, at research universities most degrees are masters of science (when they studied it was still the combined 'doctoraal' degree) - other options are MA or LLM (and nowadays the BSc, BA and LLB - but the expectation is still that you complete your masters stwight after your Bachelors.. So, both Maurits and Bernhard have a doctoraal degree (equivalent to MSc) in Economics. Annette has a doctoraal degree (MSc) in Psychology. Marlilene's degree is also a doctoraal (MSc) in Business (different from what is considered an MBA nowadays). All of the from the University of Groningen.

Pieter-Christiaan's first (doctoraal) degree was in Law (LLM) - at Utrecht University -, a few years later he also did an international MBA in Lausanne.

Princess Anita was missing in the list above. She holds a doctoraal (MSc/MA) degree in communication sciences from the University of Amsterdam. The Law degrees by Floris and Aimée are from Leiden University.
