LONDON, June 21 (UPI) -- Princess Beatrice said at the opening of Trinity Academy in Halifax, England, she was so impressed with the school she wished she had gone there.

"I have never spoken to this many people before. It is quite amazing," the Yorkshire Evening Post quoted the 24-year-old princess as telling the crowd gathered at the junior high and high school.

"I'm so honored to be here today. I'm so honored to see this amazing place," Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter said. "You're so lucky to be in an academy like this, to be in a school like this, where everything can be brought together, where young people can be taught these amazing life skills in this incredible space.

"And I thank everyone who has made this possible, to bring this community together and to make this building as spectacular as it is and to give you all the most amazing opportunities that young people deserve in the United Kingdom. I'm just so excited to be here. I've seen so many of the classes -- the science, the performance, the cheerleaders -- I mean, I wish I came to a school like this. Enjoy every moment of school. It is the best time."
