The children of Princess Cristina of Spain attend a French school in Barcelona. They also attended a French school when they were in Washington D.C.

Why does Prince Emmanuel of Belgium attend a special school?

Afaik, the school is a special school for children with learning difficulties like dyslexia, dyscalcula etc. The children are at this school for 1 or 2 years before returning to a regular school. The exact learning difficulty that P.Emmanuel has to deal with is (afaik) not been disclosed (and i'm not so sure it should...coping with learning difficulties is often hard enough for a kid as it is...)

I don't think Edward will send his children to Gordonstoun, but more likely a school closer to home for their secondary education. I am not sure Sophie would want her children to be quite so far away. Zara and Peter both went to Gordonstoun didn't they? Only Andrew was not made a Prefect the school when he attended, whereas Philip, Charles and Edward all were. Edward was also elected as Head Boy in his final year. I think Andrew and Edward got on better at the school than Charles ever did. He didn't enjoy it apparently.

I would think James attends the same school as Louise (St George's School, Windsor), which is one of the oldest in England and it is the school who looks after the choir for St George's Chapel. Princess Eugenie also attended this school for a short period of time and then went to Marlborough College, a prestigious public school in England which the Duchess of Cambridge also attended. Princess Beatrice attended St George's School in Ascot (not the same one that Louise currently attends) for her secondary education. I would think Louise and James will attend Marlborough College or James may attend Eton like William and Harry.

I also wondered why Prince Emmanuel attended a special education school as well, thanks for clearing that up.

I think Eaton is probably going to be James school. Gordonstoun is very old school, no pun intended.

Eton was founded in 1690

Gordonstoun was founded in 1934

but I think we agree!

I don't think I could of ever sent my 8 year old to boarding school. I remember I had trouble when he went to summer camp for a week.
I guess I never understood sending the young children away from home for school, do a lot of people send their children away to school starting at the age of 8?

The majority that do have either jobs that take them away - senior military, diplomatic etc and their wives go with them; or its traditional. You need £££ to do it so not all that many do.

All Royal and most upper class boys go at 8 but girls don't go until 13,I believe. I think it's so ingrained in the moneyed/titled classes it is not really an issue. and *most* kids adapt well enough and make lifelong friendships from what I have read.

Not true about girls. For example, Catherine went to St andrews School (the one she visited and played hockey in heels, just before she got sick). That school takes boarders of both sexes from 5 or 6. PArents who live away or work away and who want their children educated in the UK do this.

In Catherine's case, she became a part-time boarder - 3 or 4 days a week. Don't know how old she was, and my assumption is it was when her parents were building the business.

This type of education system is there to suit all types of situations - you just need to be able to pay for it.

That's correct, they both went to Gourdonstoun.

I also think Louise and James won't go there; I think Louise (and possibly James) will attend a day school that's near to them. It's possible that James could attend another boarding school- like others here I'm thinking that he could go to Eton and Sunningdale (I'm not sure if it's primary and secondary; I think it's just primary) sprung to my mind.

Apologies for not getting back to your question in time (I see it's already been answered).

I didn't know that Marie-Chantal and Pavlos's children are attending Garden House as well. I wonder if Margarita has met them. I remember reading somewhere that the Duchess of Cornwall used to go to Queen's Gate like Maria Olympia.

That's a lot of school for two girls. When do they relax and play?

It's very interesting reading about the different schools that royals attend. I'm just curious, has any modern royal attended a non-private school or attended a school where just regular kids attended.

James Ogilvy of England had lessons in the schoolroom at Buckingham Palace under the tutelage of Lavinia Keppel.
He went on to Gibbs Preparatory School and to Heatherdown, also a prep school.
James attended Eton College.

James was in a class with Prince Edward, Sarah Armstrong-Jones, and the Earl of St Andrews - all born in 1964 while David Linley and Prince Andrew had had other friends in the classroom until all of them were old enough to go to boarding school.
