Re: Multilingual household

the current Dutch monarchs are raising their three daughters with father speaking Dutch to them, mother Spanish and the nanny English. The previous generation was raised fully in Dutch and learned other languages but the King still has a Dutch accent in his German, English and French.
Weren't most of the Royals multilingual as a result of their upbringing. I mean one wasn't really considered educated (especially the ladies) if they weren't able to converse in a foreign language
As is well known, the present day Belgian RF is bilingual on a day to day basis - for obvious reasons
