Margrethe off to boarding school
September 17, 1955
Princess Margrethe, the 15-year-old heir to the Danish throne, will be attending boarding school in the United Kingdom, reports Reuters.
Earlier today, the Princess and her parents, King Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid, left for England today. She will be attending North Foreland Lodge, a girls' boarding school. This will be the first time that Princess Margrethe "has left her family."
The King and Queen have sent their three daughters to "regular Danish public schools." They have insisted that she not get a "royal" education, meaning she would meet "only a small number of wealthy girls."
North Foreland Lodge is for "middle class family girls."
The King and Queen have also "insisted" that their daughter "must not be given special favors or privileges."
Princess Margrethe will spend a year at the school.
