Prince Felix admitted to special education
Prince Felix, 18, has had various choices, but has now decided to start his post-secondary education in the military.
Prince Felix already knows what he needs to do when he finishes high school this summer and gets his high school diploma.
The prince has chosen to get an education as a lieutenant at the Army Officers' School.
It was written before that will begin the two-year sergeant training in Varde this summer, but this is not correct. Instead, he has chosen to apply for admission to the one-year lieutenant training at the Army Officers' School in Slagelse, has been approved for the program, and passed the entrance exams.
- We can confirm that Prince Felix applied for admission to the Army's Lieutenant Training in the autumn of 2020. After completed entrance exams, the Prince has been given a place on the training, which begins in August 2021. The training is completed in Slagelse and has a duration of one year", says the Royal House.
Prince Felix is still in high school, but has already decided that after graduating, he will follow in the footsteps of his father, Prince Joachim, and begin a military career. When the prince starts the Lieutenant Training, for which the Army Officers' School is responsible, his choice will certainly make his father, Prince Joachim, very proud. Prince Joachim himself has a very solid military education and currently the prince, who has the rank of brigadier general, works as a defense attaché at the embassy in Paris.
Prince Felix has certainly had a "soldiers talk" with both his brother and his father, and getting a military education can also be a good springboard to many other educations, both inside and outside the military. Thus, at the same time as the year at the barracks in Slagelse, Prince Felix can get a sense of which way his future career should go.
The prince, who will be a student from Gammel Hellerup Gymnasium this summer, turns 19 in July, when he will begin his military education in August.
