Prince Hisahito, a nephew of Emperor Naruhito and second in line to the throne, has been admitted to a high school known as a highly competitive state-run institution in Tokyo, the Imperial Household Agency said Wednesday.

The 15-year-old prince, the only son of Crown Prince Akishino and Crown Princess Kiko, is the first member of the imperial family in the postwar era to enroll at a high school not affiliated with Gakushuin University, established in the 19th century as a school for aristocrats. Instead he will enter Senior High School at Otsuka, University of Tsukuba from April.
