The Italian pastor Michelangelo Florio was employed to instruct Lady Jane Grey in Italian. Jane did well learning Italian. Florio chose to dedicate one of his grammar books, Regole de la Lingua Thoscana, to her.

Does Prince Charles really speak Welsh ? I have never heard him speak German either.

Charles attended Aberystwyth University for a short time. I believe he learned some Welsh there. It's probably a bit rusty now, but it's said he does still understand a few phrases.

Here is a video of Charles reading some lines of poetry in Welsh.

Ayako actually went to college in Canada for a time. She did a home study in NZ at one point as well. She did a short period at Camouson in 2010/11 in her undergrad (Victoria, my dad actually went there), and then spent time between 2013-2015 during her graduate studies, studying English again at Camouson. She also studied at UBC for a short time.

Followed in the steps of her dad, studying in Canada. Prince Takamodo spent three years studying law at Queens university in Kingston, Ontario. Canada holds a special place for the family, as the Canadian embassy in Tokyo was where Takamodo met his wife (though she had worked for Prince Mikasa previously).

The two oldest daughters followed in their parents' footsteps. Ayako went to school in Canada like dad, and her older sister went to school in the UK like their mother. Different schools in both cases. Tsuguko went to the University of Edinburgh for a time before dropping out. Her mother spent part of her childhood in the UK due to her father's job, and graduated from Cambridge.
