Based on Albert's LinkedIn-profile it looks like the family has been back in Europe since 2019. His current jobs show 'Amsterdam' as location, while his profile states 'United Kingdom', so I am not sure whether they live in the Netherlands or in the UK (in that case, most likely in London).

Edit: Carolina's states 'London, UK' as location, so it seems they indeed live in London.

Interesting, thanks. Seeing as the couple has changed countries several times, I wonder where and in what language(s) their children will be educated in.

I am quite sure they are bilingual in Dutch and English. Wouldn't be surprised if they are also learning French (an important UN work language and the language spoken in for example Geneva where both seem to have lived) and Italian (this would be a nod to Carolina's background but not sure how important that is for her as her children aren't princes and princesses of Bourbon-Parma unlike some of their cousins.

I noticed that on his LinkedIn-profile Albert states that he speaks 6 languages:
Quote:
Languages
Dutch
Native or bilingual proficiency

English
Native or bilingual proficiency

French
Full professional proficiency

German
Full professional proficiency

Portuguese
Full professional proficiency

Spanish
Professional working proficiency
I was most surprised about Portuguese but it looks like he lived in Brazil for some time:

No Italian it seems, as neither Albert nor Caroline speaks Italian... Because of her father Caroline considers Spanish one of her native tongues it seems (which makes sense).

See above for the 6 languages spoken by Albert; below you find the 5 spoken by Carolina (all 5 also covered by Albert):

Quote:
Languages
Dutch

English

French
Full professional proficiency

German
Professional working proficiency

Spanish
Native or bilingual proficiency
Her current job sounds like something that would make a meeting or collaboration between her and the Duchess of Cambridge meaningful:
