It's good to see how Mary and Frederik are involved in the education of their children! young royals are so much luckier than their parents who couldn't raise themselves their kids!

At what age do children typically start attending the Krebs Skole? It does make sense to keep Christian at a school closer to home for kindergarten, but it would also be lovely to see the family keep the tradition of attending Krebs Skole.

I think they start at the age of 6. I agree with you, i would love Christian to follow in his father and uncles footsteps. .

The article doesn't say, but I think that Mary's father and step-mother are still living in Denmark. I could be wrong, though. I do remember reading that they might be going back to Australia to live. I don't know if that was something they were just discussing or were planning for the future. John Donaldson was teaching at a university in Denmark on a contract, and I don't know the length of the contract, or whether it was renewed if the time passed.

If they were living in Denmark, wouldn't they have been invited to P Henrik's 75th birthday party, as Marie's parents were?

Perhaps the new crop of royal princesses will have their children at home at night and send them to local schools. Contrary to how most of the princes were schooled in boarding schools, the new generation may stay closer to home.

Frederik and Joachim spent only one year at a boarding school in France and Queen Margarete spent one year at an English boarding school. But they all were in their teens when they went, at an age when a year away from home is a welcome change for most kids. The rest of their school year they stayed at home in Kopenhagen.

Both Krebs and Zalhs school are not boarding schools...i think that the only boarding school from 1. graide and up to Hige School is Herlufholm Boarding school..after the ordeneary school from 1.-9. graide the studentes her in Denmark can take a year at efterskole/afterschool.

Frederik and Joachim attended École des Roches in Normandy when they were 14 and 16.

The Crown Prince attended elementary school at Krebs' Skole during the years 1974–1981, from 1974–1976 as a private pupil at Amalienborg Palace, and from the third form at Krebs' Skole. In the period 1982–1983, the Crown Prince was a boarder at École des Roches in Normandy, France. In 1986, Crown Prince Frederik graduated from the upper secondary school of Øregaard Gymnasium.

Prince Joachim attended school as a private pupil from 1974 until 1976 at Amalienborg Palace and then from 1976 until 1982 at Krebs' Skole in Copenhagen. In the period 1982–1983, the Prince was a boarder at École des Roches in Normandy, France. In 1986, Prince Joachim graduated from the Øregaard Gymnasium. In 1991–1993.

Queen Margrethe studied prehistoric archaeology at Girton College, Cambridge during 1960–61, political science at Aarhus University between 1961–1962, at the Sorbonne in 1963, and at the London School of Economics in 1965.

The Couple are currently living in Aarhus as John teaches at the University. He will begin teaching at the University of Copenhagen next year. Maybe they were out of the country at the time?

Thank you, lumutqueen. I couldn't remember the name of the University where Mary's father was teaching. I thought that they were in the country during the time of Prince Henrik's birthday celebrations.

If they were in the country, I wonder why Mary's father and stepmother didn't go to P Henrik's birthday celebrations.

thank you lumutqueen-----I knoww herei n the US it is a lot of kids they do homescholling but i know it is not very popular in europe and certenly not in argentina. I am sure Mary would like normal school, but i have to agree that with home schoolong it is more focus in some subjets and ma be this is what he needed a lot of sports people do homeschooling to have more time for practicing but i am not sure if it is so good or not jet.

Mary's father and stepmother left Denmark around June 2008 there was an article in Billed Bladet at the time. They were in Australia last year when Mary and Frederik visited.
In February this year a further article in several newspapers in Denmark (Politiken is one and BB) stating that Mr Donaldson will be a guest teacher at Herlufsholm boarding college for two weeks in spring and then again in autumn.

If the newspapers are reportingit, it really doesn't sound THAT secret...and M&F might have every intention of sending Christian to Krebs but just not now...He might start his schooling at Fredensborg which is familiar and with his Kindergarten friends and while they are living in Fredensborg...but when they move into the renovated and redecorated apartment in Amalienborg and Christian is a bit older and mature and his academic aptitude has been assessed then he will go to Krebs, maybe when he is 8-10 years old...

I think Fred and Mary are all for following traditions but just not rushing those traditions...Christian has plenty of time to attend private and formal schooling...I think they just want to ease him into it and keep him close because he will be grown up and gone (from M&F's control) before we know it...and Mary looks like the kind of mother who will shed a few tears as her son starts his own life journey at age 18 or something...
