Princess Alexandrine learns a trade

October 29, 1930

Prince Harald of Denmark has asked that all of his children learn a "practical trade," despite their royal positions. One of his daughters, Princess Alexandrine Louise is currently working for a Copenhagen bookbinder. She had refused a position in the bookbinder's office, and asked if she could learn how to bind books.
The Princess, who is 15-years-old, is the third of five children of Prince Harald and Princess Helena of Denmark. Prince Harald is a younger brother of King Christian X.
