In the news
We celebrate the Danish royal twins’ first day at school and Malala and Malia’s first days at uni, and catch up with who else made headlines.
Even little royals have first-day nerves
Like parents everywhere, Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark might have shed a tear as they waved their six-year-old twins goodbye on their first day of school. Princess Josephine was all smiles, but Prince Vincent seemed a little unsure about being put in a class without his sister at Tranegård School in Copenhagen. Mary and Frederik are the first Danish royal couple to send their brood to a public school. Just days later, there was more excitement as the family joined Prince Henrik and Queen Margrethe to welcome the royal dachshund Tillia’s eight adorable puppies.
