Not just any class mate...

Today was the first day back at school for the kids, after the long holiday. I must admit, I was pretty happy to leave them both at school this morning, it's been a long four weeks...
Linnea was super excited to go to school this morning, Lucas not so much. It all changed once he got there though and met up with all his friends again. By the end of the day, they had both had a really good first day!

Linnea has got a new class mate, and not just any class mate - it's one of the Princes! Prince Abdul Wakeel, the Sultan's youngest son. He is the first child of the Sultan's second wife, a former Malaysian TV3 presenter.

He arrived to school this morning together with his mother, two nurses and two armed guards - in his own car. Escorted by another two cars and four police motorbikes... His mother apparently had stayed all day, and will be there again tomorrow to help him settle - after that he will have to "make do" with the nurses and the guards!

I guess it's kind of cool to have a Royal Prince as your class mate, even though Linnea doesn't have a clue, of course. But as the class mum I wonder - will the HRH like to be included on the class phone list you think..?
