Leonor, the Princess of Asturias and heir to the Spanish throne, will study abroad in Wales, the Royal Household said today, according to media outlets.
The 15-year-old will be attending UWC Atlantic College for two years at a cost of more than $90,000, to be paid for by King Felipe and Queen Letizia.
The school is run by United World Colleges, which has educated well-known people in the arts and government, including royals.
Spanish state broadcaster TVE is in hot water after a graphic saying Princess Leonor was leaving Spain just like her grandfather, King Juan Carlos. The internal and political backlash has been fierce.
