Dutch Princess Catharina-Amalia, the future Queen of the Netherlands, has moved into a palace in The Hague and ‘can’t really get out’ in a sharp reversal of her plans to go to university and live like a “regular student”.

“I find it uncomfortable as long as I don’t do much in return and the other students have a much harder time,” Amalia wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Mark Rutte regarding her decision.
