That school is very impressive looking!

Sweet, lovely girl.

I love the photos of the children going back to school; I've always liked how close they seem to be with one another - I can imagine the others miss Elisabeth when she goes back to Wales.
I knew Elisabeth's school was grand, but I didn't know it was quite literally a castle - almost Hogwarts-like

While perhaps not as impressive as Alnwick (aka the outside of Hogwarts), it is impressive.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Donat%27s_Castle

It is located in St Donat's castle. Parts date back to the 1200's. It was owned for centuries by the Stradling family.

Most of what we see today was restored by William Randalph Herst. He bought it and spent a lot of money restoring it. During WWII it was used for troops, and after Hearst often loaned it to his friend Bob Hope.

It was purchased from his estate 10 years after he died, and donated to be used to house the college.


I always wanted to go to school in a castle, even before Harry Potter.


The siblings indeed always look so close. I am sure they miss Elisabeth and she them but she seems to enjoy the school.

Princess Elisabeth will receive a stamp for her 18th birthday. It will be released on 21 October , four days before her birthday. The pre-publication on the stamp is blurred for the "surprise".

It looks like they used a photo of Elisabeth from National Day 2017.

Pity they used an older picture and not a new one.

It's a "new" photo from an earlier photoshoot.

I see. But I hoped for a photo from a new photoshoot. Something where she looks like her present self. She grew a lot in the last few years.
