Thanks, interesting to hear. It seems to be getting worse again in a lot of European countries - I think Madrid is on the rise too in Spain.

I still can't believe that Count Claus-Casimir of Orange-Nassau was 16 this year!

Eloise has responded to royal correspondent Marc van der Linden, who has apparently suggested that Claus was sent to Gordonstoun due to bad behavior, on Instagram:
"What a strange idea to suggest that Claus is being sent away, when he is such a nice and social boy. He is also a great brother. How can you talk about a young boy like that and not expect this to affect him. Act normally and keep your negative opinion, which is based on nothing, to yourself."

You're welcome Yes, it's a huge problem in Madrid unfortunately, as well as in Paris, Brussels, Prague and other places. We're not doing great here in Vienna either.

If an adult can't pick on the parents, they do it to the children Mr van der Linden must have had a bad day so he picks on an easy target a child. Maybe he didn't get the memo, children are off limits.? Isn't Gordonstoun the school the POW and the Pss Royal went? I believe I read somewhere long ago, Charles hated it there, he was picked on a lot, but Anne loved it there? This only shows, that a Title does not protect a child or adult,from some ones abuse. Sad but true.

What is“ bad behavior” supposed to mean exactly in this context ?

I'm not sure Mr van der Linden knows either, here's what he said:
"He is charming and ambitious, but has mischiefs that could worry you as a parent. Then there may come a time when parents decide: if you continue like this, you will go to boarding school. And this school is known for that, notorious even, that you are taught discipline there. It was decided impulsively, otherwise he would not have started in The Hague and have now switched. I can't figure out what exactly happened, but it's not just about that webshop."

Starting in The Hague for a few weeks before starting at Gordonstoun does sound a little weird. It would be interesting to know if this was indeed a sudden move and if so, what made them go this route.

The same in Lisbon. In fact, Lisbon has more than 50% of all new cases in Portugal every single day. I am thankful that I live in the south of Portugal, sometimes we get single digits and other times double digits. But it seems it's on the rise. Maybe a second wave in Europe? It makes sense for Eloise to be sent home, if Amsterdam is getting lots of new cases lately.

As I explained before both Amsterdam and The Hague are getting lots of cases, so from that point of view it isn't helpful to move back to The Hague from Amsterdam. However, of course, the point is that Eloise was living at the Hotelschool: having lots of students living in close quarters is less safe than sending at least the domestic students home.

I see. Sorry I did not read your post properly. Indeed, it doesn't make sense if both places are getting many new cases, but as you mentioned, perhaps living in the Hotelschool proved to be unsafe for the students.

Charles yes, Anne no. The school was not co-ed until 1972 after she had finished her schooling. She went to the Benedon School instead. Andrew and Edward also went, and Peter and Zara for the next generation.

It wasn't an abusive school. Charles himself has said that it simply 'drove him physically and mentally harder then he had before'. He was simply more intellectual then his father and would have preferred Eton. Likely the strongest reason his sons ended up at Eton and not following in the Gordonstoun tradition.

That's funny! They definitely are a close knit family.

Constantijn and his family seem very down to earth - he looks like a carbon copy of WA in that video from Eloise! It's nice that she also seems to be close to her parents.

The video has been removed from TikTok and Instagram, and on Twitter Prince Constantijn has said "Daughters and social media...sigh."
So apparently he was not too happy with it.

People seemed to like it - I have only seen positive comments- but removing it was the right choice. We can do without seeing Prince Costantijn copying the dance move of 'Romana' on her scooter.
