Spanish crown princess Leonor will soon attend boarding school in a medieval castle in Wales. The 15-year-old will prepare for his international high school diploma at UWC Atlantic College, 25 kilometers west of the Welsh capital, Cardiff, the royal family announced in Madrid on Wednesday.
The school is housed in 12th-century St. Donet Castle. It is part of the United World Colleges (UWC), which includes institutions from Canada to Swaziland. UWC schools were founded by German teacher Kurt Hahn, according to his own statements, combining intensive training with charitable work and an “open and critical spirit”.
The two half-year costs for Leonor were 67,000 pounds (76,500 euros). This amount will be paid from a government grant to King Felipe and his wife Letizia. Leonor is not the first member of the European royal family to attend UWC school. The school was also part of the training of the Dutch king Willem-Alexander and the Belgian heir to the throne, Princess Elizabeth.
