Time would be a big part of it.

I believe that West Point is a four year course including a degree whereas Sandhurst is only a military academy and so is only 44 weeks of military training.

William, for instance went to St Andrew's for 4 years before going to Sandhurst while Harry skipped uni and went straight to Sandhurst after taking a nearly 2 year gap year.


That means that they can get their degrees somewhere else and do their military training at a world class institution instead of having to combine the two.

The course at Sandhurst is much shorter (44 weeks) than West Point where it's 4 years at a university.

I know Charles has compared his time at that school to a prison sentence.

That is one reason why he was so amenable to Diana's wish to send their sons to Eton, he didn't want them going to Gordonstoun because he was miserable there.

I wonder why Andrew and Edward got on better at the school than their older brother...different temperaments probably had a lot to do with it.

Why just those few schools? Are there no other schools in the neighbourhood? Do all the children in the villages/towns where they live go to Eton, Gordonstoun etc?

There are lots of private schools in the area but the Royals tend to stick with tradition and the aforementioned schools tend to be the favoured ones.

To attend any of the U.S. military academies (except the Coast Guard), you must have a Congressional appointment. You must also prepare for attendance during your second year of high school. Yes, on a case-by-case basis, foreign students are accepted, but I'm not sure of that process.

Harry would never have made it into Sandhurst had he not been who he is. I believe, and this could have changed, that passing out is not on individual merit, but class merit. If most of your class makes it, you make it too, even if your work was sub-par.

It is the right platform to know about royal life right from the beginning. Royal education is helpful to know how to live a royal life in all aspects.

It has educated everyone from the Duchess of Cambridge, her sister and Samantha Cameron to posh comedian Jack Whitehall and now Marlborough College has just been named as the best private school in the West.

Pupils at the 34,000 a year school in Wiltshire achieved the highest points total average in their GCSEs of any fee-paying school in the region, but only one school from the region made it into the top 50 ranked private schools in the country and that was at number 50.

Marlborough College's class of 2015 averaged a creditable 556.66 points in their GCSEs, the highest of any in the West. Points are achieved for exam results, meaning Marlborough's pupils got the most GCSE passes at the highest grades of any school in the West.

The school is one of the most expensive in the region, and has an alumni packed with famous figures from politics, law, the media and sciences.

Prince George of Cambridge is due to start Westacre Montessori in Norfolk, England. Princes William and Harry as well as Princess Eugenie all attended Montessori nurseries.

I wonder if they'll send George to Marlborough with Charlotte or send him to Eton? On one hand it be nice for him to follow in William's footsteps and go to Eton. But it would be more convenient to have the kids at the same school and attend school functions.

I'm hoping for Marlborough College for the same reason. Its a top school and Eton was choosen for William because that's where Spencer men attend
A lot of royal firsts with William were because that's what Diana wanted. William and Catherine can make their own decisions.

Royal Education

The Kents and Gloucester men went to Eton too. William wouldn't not have been sent to Eton if Charles didn't hate Gordonstoun. If he liked it, William and Harry would have been sent there but since he hated it, he was opened to them going to Eton.

William appears to like his time at Eton. Plus it location would be ideal for George to visit the monarch (either his grandfather or father) to learn how to be King. Just like William would spend Sundays with the Queen when he was at Eton by walking over to Windsor castle.

According to Wikipedia:

She is married to Prince Felix, the second son of Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg.

Thank you for the info. I was searching and most royals (current crown princely families, young Kings and Queens and royals fom their generation) own a Masters degree, though I think the British owns mostly Bachelors. So I was wondering who got PhD.
