Thank you for the reply Henri. I can understand that he would have been frustrated by this awesome responsibility. He does have a very different personality than his mother, but I do get the sense that they have a good relationship.

He does seem to have come into his own during his thirties. His interest and activity in water conservation seems to have given him a sense of purpose while he's waiting for his ascension. I think that marriage to Maxima has been the icing on the cake for him. They are a great team together.

He didn't even know what [I think it was the initials of the U.N meant] and he had tutors, the whole works helping him. Astrid, well I read that she studied Art/History but she didn't complete the course for a degree. She studied, I think, in Switzerland and America for a while. Didn't Laurent stay in Belgium?

Prince Charles went to Geelong Grammar’s Timbertop boarding school while in Australia.
On his most recent visit here last year i think it was, he went back and visited it and they had a reunion or something and he said it was a special place for him. He said this was the place that made him into a man---or something like that.

Charles hated some aspects of his education at Gordonstoun I believe, it was very basic and the boys had to walk along long unheated corridors to get to the shower rooms, in a Scottish winter that is no joke! According to my brothers the only places that were heated were the staff quarters, the dining hall and anywhere parents might have been expected to go. I should think things had changed by the time Zara went there.

King Abdullah attended St. Edmunds School in England for his primary education. He attended Eaglebrook School and Deerfield Academy in the US for his secondary education.

He was clearly very pleased with his time at Deerfield, as he has recently set up a prep school in Jordan of a similar style.

Post Jordan Prep school

Jordan Basing Its Own Prep School on Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts - New York Times

Jordan Plans to Start Its Own New England-Style Prep School

By KATIE ZEZIMA


Published: March 1, 2006
DEERFIELD, Mass. — Deerfield Academy, with its brick buildings, blazing maples, jacket and tie requirements and powerful graduates, is the quintessential New England boarding school. Soon, it will see its reflection in an unlikely place, outside Madaba, Jordan.

Rainier was first sent to study at Summerfield College in St Leonards-on-Sea, England, and later at Stowe, a prestigious English public school in Buckinghamshire. From there, he went to the Institut Le Rosey in Rolle and Gstaad, Switzerland, before continuing to the University of Montpellier in France, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree, and finally to the Institut d'études politiques de Paris in Paris.

I remember a story of Diana hiding under the table of the room where her teachers had tea. They had great pastries and some of the students would sneak into the room and grab a few. Unfortunaltely when Diana tried the trick, a teacher came into the room and she had to hide under the table untill he would finally leave.
