“In light of the increased situation in Denmark regarding the treatment of the spread of COVID-19, the Crown Prince family has decided that the family must return home from Switzerland,” the press release said.

“The Crown Prince family finds it natural to return home and stand with the Danes at a time when a lot is required of everyone and where there is a common responsibility to take care of each other.”

The statement continued: “On January 6, 2020, their Royal Highnesses Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine began a 12-week school stay in Iemania-Bees in Switzerland.

“For example, the school stay is interrupted prematurely and all four children continue in Denmark when the public institutions reopen in Denmark.”

Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine started their boarding school stay in January when Princess Mary described their time there as a 'gift' to her children (pictured on their first day of school in Copenhagen in 2017)

Crown Prince Frederick and Princess Mary’s decision to train their children abroad is likely the result of Prince Frederick, 51, and his brother Prince Joachim, who spent several years studying as a teenager.

They attended the École des Roches in Normandy, France in the early 1980s, and may have chosen multilingual Switzerland to improve the language skills of their brood.

On Thursday, Denmark became the second country in Europe to shut down, as the corona virus continues to tear through Europe and the rest of the world.

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen stated that all Danish schools, universities and kindergartens will be closed for two weeks to slow down the spread of the bug.

Bold new measures also include banning indoor events with 100 or more attendees and sending non-critical workers in the public sector home.

Private sector workers will also be encouraged to work from home after the Danish Patient Safety Authority reported 442 new cases this week. The country now has 617 confirmed cases.

The urgent action follows the World Health Organization’s designation of the coronavirus as a pandemic, as it blamed “inactive” governments for fueling the crisis.
