Exactly, that's what I also said in one of my other posts. In the one you quoted I specifically responded to a message that said that it's logical that they receive the best education possible -...

I agree that there are substantial differences. Nonetheless, this couple was praised for sending the children to a Dutch-language school; so, this move might not be seen in a positive light by many....

It looks like his is preparing himself for IB. Whether that will be at the International School of Brussels or in Wales like his older sister remains to be seen. I wonder whether it has been harder...

I don't think she is fluent in German. She once read a few sentences in German from a paper in front of her. I guess that might be enough for the media to think she 'speaks' German. As almost anyone...

You seem to misread my comments. I have stated multiple times that I think she qualifies, however, I am also very much aware that assessors never are neutral, so her being a princess does influence...

I agree. I have no reason to think that she did not meet the criteria. However, there were most likely more students than places to fill, so not all students who met all criteria were accepted. For...
