Princess Mary shared a picture on Facebook showing her son Prince Christian on his first day at a new school. It includes husband and Christian’s father, Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark. The 15-year-old is starting Herlufsholm School, a private day and boarding institution outside of Copenhagen.
The Danish Royal Family posted a picture of the three standing outside the school.
“His Royal Highness Prince Christian moved into Herlufsholm’s dietary department in Næststved today,” the post was captioned.
“The Prince begins high school tomorrow. Today has been used to settle in the new surroundings and meet the new schoolmates.”
The post was liked 23,000 times. It received just under 1,000 comments and shares.

A fourth wrote: “Hope it will be a lovely stay for Prince Christian.”
In the picture, the young prince is dressed smartly in his new uniform.
This is not common in Denmark as the Herlufsholm School is the only school which enforces uniforms.
The school is known to host nobility since it was founded in 1565 but Prince Christian will be the first future monarch to attend the school.
He is the second in line to the throne after his father Crown Prince Frederik.
Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary have four children together – Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.
Recent reports emerged suggesting Frederik was forced to cancel his trip to Tokyo for the Olympic games as he had come into contact with someone who had tested positive for Covid.
“His Royal Highness the Crown Prince has had to cancel his participation in the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, as the Crown Prince is in close contact with a person infected with COVID-19,” a statement from the Danish royal courts read.
“Due to stricter entry requirements at the Olympic Games, this means that the crown prince does not have the opportunity to travel to Japan.”
It has been reported that his wife, Princess Mary, and four children did not have to isolate as they were not identified as close contacts with the positive case.
His attendance at the Tokyo games was intended to be the Danish Crown Prince’s last Olympics as an active member of the International Olympic Committee.
He has been a member of the committee for 12 years.
