sara1981 "im not sure about peter and zara's education?"

Port Regis school www.portregis.com

Gordounstoun school http://www.gordonstoun.org.uk/[/quote]

Where is Zenouska Mowatt now attending school?
She used to attend St George's School, Windsor, the same school as Princess Eugenie.

Quote:
The divorced 36-year-old mother of two, who is the daughter of Princess Alexandra and Sir Angus Ogilvy - who are alleged to be worth £20 million - was reported to be so short of money that she is planning to take her daughter, Zenouska, 12, out of a private school and move her to a comprehensive.
Is she still in a private school?

It was the time of my life. There still are many of these boarding schools in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Let's remember that this thread is to discuss the boarding schools of royals. If members who attended boarding school would like to discuss their experiences, they should do so in the Members' Corner. Thank you.

Prince Rainier III attended Stowe School in the UK. He attended a prep school also in the UK but I forgot the name. As the tale goes, he deplored his entire experience and spent the better part writing home to beg his parents allowance to go home to Monaco.

Prince Charles attended Cheam School, which is now Cheam-Hawtreys, a merger of two prep schools that were distinct in his day. As stated already, he went onto Gordonstoun. Don't forget about the school in Australia, Geelong, it was a boarding school, although I guess the kids were camping out in the bush, chopping wood, and kangaroo-watching -- or else according to Prince Charles in the Dimbleby biography, dodging headhunting clans.... oh well, the headhunters were in Papau New Guinea....

As well as Riddlesworth Hall and West Heath, Diana attended a Swiss finishing school near Gstaad, Institut Alpin Videmanette (sp?) something or other.

Prince Andrew and Prince Edward attended Heatherdown prep school and Gordonstoun. Viscount Linley also attended Heatherdown I think, but he went onto Bedales for public school. Apparently, Bedales is very artsy, I don't know. I just remember reading that his father hoped he would attend Eton, but he felt better suited in the freer environment of Bedales.

The Earl of Snowdon did in fact attend Eton College.

Captain Mark Phillips was a Marlborough man.

Prince Andrew spent some time in Lakefield College in Canada, and Prince Edward went to a school in New Zealand.

I think I've read in the past that Prince Willem-Alexander and his parents felt that they all needed some time apart during his school years in Wales.

Yes. The Prince himself said in an interview more or less something like (I do not have the right words)
"You see: I love my parents. And my parents love me. But together we did not love each other anymore."

The Prince had problems in accepting that he was the only guy in the Netherlands which had nothing to say about his own future, and that since the very minute he was born. And the Prince, who is a more laissez-faire, laissez-passer type of person, continuously clashed with his demanding and perfectionistic mother.

So getting out of The Hague, away from the royal family, away from the prying eyes of the press, to a place where no one knew him was like a liberation for him. When he returned and assumed his military duties, he had found peace with his destiny and understood his mother's drive for perfection.

Oh yeah, I had forgotten about Lakefield, but didn't know about Prince Edward going to New Zealand.

Peter and Zara Phillips : Port Regis (Dorset?) and Gordonstoun

Princess Beatrice : St George, Ascot

Princess Eugenie : Marlborough College

HRH The Princess Royal : Benenden School

I think before Marlborough, Captain Phillips was at Stowe (unsure)?

Lady Gabriella Windsor - Downe House

Lord Frederick Windsor - Eton College (where did he go for prep school, anyone know? I know for pre-prep/non-boarding he went to Wetherby like the Wales boys).

Great pic! I see W-A hasn't really changed that much over the years.

This is a very interesting thread.

Does anyone know about Prince Philippe and his siblings and also Prince Felipe and his sisters, did any of them attend boarding schools?

I know Prince Felipe went to Lakefield College in Canada for a while. How about his sisters and the King?

I read in a book about King Juan Carlos that he had private schooling. But I'm not that up on it maybe someone else can help us out.

Also I forgot to ask about Denmark's RF and their schooling in my previous post. Anyone know?

I'm getting a little confused what is exactly being classified a boarding school? Going off to college when one is a young adult in my opinion and at least where I'm from that would not be classified a boarding school. Boarding schools are usually for young ones(elementary, junior high, and high school age groups). College and university studies are completely different in my mind.

Alright I did some research at wikipedia

For the Danish princes: Fred and Joachim both attended Ecole des Roches in Normandy for only a year. It said it was from 1982 to 1983 for both so they must have been there together.

This isn't as easy as I thought it would be doing some research on this b/c I don't know a lot of the schools and whether or not there boarding schools.

Lakefield isn't what you normally think of as a college. It's a prep school. I believe Prince Andrew went there on an exchange from Gordonstoun for a term or two.

Yeah I already looked it up it says it's classified as a boarding school but it just seems that there are one or two schools that are mentioned in the thread that I'm unsure about being an actual boarding school. But I don't really know.
