That's interesting. I would have thought that HM Queen Margrethe II would have preferred Danish girls but is open to anyone that her sons would fall in love with and marry. Why is that do you think?

There is nothing to hinder DRF members to marry Danes. After all even the odd Danish king has married Danes. But it's been the custom for many years that DRF members find their spouses abroad.
Beforehand mainly for dynastic and alliance reasons. Later because there really aren't that many high ranking nobles in DK suitable for a fairly equal marriage to a DRF member.
Today that has of course changed. The last three additions to the DRF were all commoners.
But it still makes good sense to marry someone from abroad. There is no family in DK, who can make a spectacle of themselves. No one in DK who "know" in the Biblical definition of the word, any potential new DRF member. And it's expands the horizon to marry a foreigner.

Since M&F's children are IMO almost certain to spend at least some time on their own in Australia (and Scotland too perhaps) there is a decent chance Australia won't have made its last contribution to the DRF.
There is IMO a pretty good chance M&F's children will end up marrying foreigners - and they may even be if not encouraged, then certainly not discouraged from marrying foreigners.

It's a bit different for Joachim's children. Since they are more or less destined to have their own careers, they are not as bound by the "family-tradition".
But it's after all a very cosmopolitan family...

Did Nikolai graduate from high school? In many countries students graduate from high school at the age of 18. Does he attends university?

Nikolai will graduate from high school this summer.

I imagine he will then opt for volunteer conscription. His dad, Joachim, has certainly expressed a preference for him doing that.
It is IMO likely that he will combine the volunteer conscription with a sabbatical year, where he will either have a job, or more likely go traveling.
Then he will attend a university. What university and what subject remains to be seen.
So far we basically only know that Nikolai is an intelligent, well articulated and seemingly confident young man. - Should anyone wish to guess where he might go.
