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.

He went on to Gibbs Preparatory School and to Heatherdown, also a prep school.
James attended Eton College.
Princess Maria Carolina of Bourbon Parma, Princess Irene of The Netherlands' daughter, studied political science at the University of Amsterdam and at Harvard University.

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.

In 1982, Prince Kyril of Bulgaria, the second son of King Simeon II, passed his Baccalaureate exams and honors in mathematics. He then opted to study Theoretical and Quantum Physics at Princeton University.
Emmanuel, the Comte de Las Cases, the secretary of Napoleon I, gave English lessons to Napoleon.
These were not successful.
A fragment of his attempt at the language has survived:
'Count Las Casses, Since sixt wek, y Learnt the english and y do not any progress.'
Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark, daughter of Constantine II, attended Brown University under the name Theodora Greece.
In King Charles III, Anthony Holden wrote:

Edward VIII, in fact, seemed in later life to consider education a positive disadvantage for a prince.
At least Oxford taught him something of his fellow-men. 'All the time,' according to Warren's report, 'he was learning more and more every day of men, gauging character, watching its play, getting to know what Englishmen are like, both individually and in the mass . . .'
King Alfred of Wessex learned Latin at the age of 38 to translate Cura Pastoralis (Pastoral Care or Rule) by Pope Gregory the Great.
Alfred sent a copy of his translation with an exquisite aestel (bookmark) to every bishop in the Kingdom of Wessex.

Via an old Instagram bio, I discovered that Margarita Armstrong-Jones is currently attending St. Mary's School in Ascot. I was also looking at their website for a friend, and she was also mentioned in an online newsletter, so I would think that means its official that she goes there. Pupils from Garden House (where she used to attend) usually go onto St. Mary's.

As her account is private, I hope I'm not breaking the rules here as I know sometimes posts containing information from personal social media accounts of the royals are deleted (though it's my understanding that mainly applies for photos?). Arthur Chatto has a public account on Instagram, so it's quite easy to find people like his brother Samuel as well as Margarita via his follower lists.

I am surprised she goes to St Mary's as it's a Roman Catholic school and Viscount Linley is not Catholic as he is still in the line of succession. Lady Marina-Charlotte and Lady Amelia went to St Mary's as well. Garden House is probably a feeder school for St Mary's in Ascot. I know Lady Helen's daughters went to Garden House too but not sure where they are now. They may be at Gordonstoun as that is where Helen attended.

It's likely Louise will go to Marlborough College where Eugenie and Catherine went, whereas James is likely to go to Eton as that is currently where the Chatto brothers go/went, or perhaps Harrow.

I was surprised too, but I read that girls from Garden House traditionally go to St. Mary's afterwards, so I guess Margarita is just following that tradition. IIRC Princess Caroline of Monaco went there too, and I remember reading that the Duchess of Lugo's daughter goes there, but I'm not sure if it's St. Mary's. She defiantly goes to a private boarding school in England though.

It's possible that Louise will go to Marlborough. The Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa also went there (but of course she wasn't royal when she was a pupil), and it's also been the school of British comedians Miranda Hart and Jack Whitehall. Jack Whitehall said in one of his tours that he remembers having a crush on Catherine when she was in Sixth Form.

^^ Victoria apparently spent a year at St Mary's as her mum and Cristina both spent a year at St Mary's. Caroline I believe spent a year as well.

I can't see any other school option for Louise except for perhaps St George's in Ascot where her cousin Beatrice, as well as Lady Rose and Lady Davina (Duke of Gloucester's girls) went. I believe Beatrice and Eugenie went to separate schools as I think Beatrice struggled at school with dyslexia so remained in the same school.

Gordonstoun could be an option for James and Louise as Edward and his brothers of course went there (as did Peter, Zara and Lady Helen) but it's very far away.

So many of the British royals have gone to Eton that it makes sense for James to go if he is able to (William, Harry, Earl of Ulster, Duke of Gloucester, Prince William of Gloucester, Earl of St Andrew's, Lord Downpatrick to name a few!) I believe Charles, Andrew and Edward would have gone to Eton also but Philip put his foot down and decided they would go to Gordonstoun.

^^Interesting that so far it's only been Anne's kids besides Lady Helen who have gone to Gordonstoun. It wasn't co-ed in her school years but IMO she would have likely flourished there if it had been. I'm speculating that her brothers didn't want their children to attend their alma mater for various reasons.

With Windsor being close to Baghot Park I can see why Eton would be considered for James.

I think that Louise is more likely to go to St George's as then she won't have to board and I am not sure that Edward and Sophie want to send her away to school.

Prince Charles has made no secret of his loathing for Gordonstoun; perhaps his brothers weren't keen either?

Apparently Andrew and Edward didn't mind it as much as Charles but perhaps it had changed since Charles had been there. Philip, Charles and Edward were all appointed as Guardians (prefect) during their time at the school so can't have been that bad for them. Anne was disappointed she could not attend hence why she sent Peter and Zara there.

Reading the CC over the years what I have found interesting is that Anne is the one who is most connected with Gordonstoun. I don't remember reading anything about Charles, Andrew or Edward doing anything to help the school. Anne and Philip are listed regularly as doing something for the school. Andrew visits Canada at least once a year to support Lakeland School there - where he went for two terms and he also is involved in events in the UK for Lakeland School while Charles has attended events associated with Geelong Grammar - the school in Australia he attended for two terms.

Wasn't there something in the news awhile back about certain royal families paying for their sons to get into Sandhurst?? I wonder why non of them ever come to the United States to go to West Point or other military schools here. They would have more privacy and a chance to be a little normal for awhile before they have to go home to duties and the press.
