Royal Life At School

I wonder how young royal are treated in school. What do students, teachers, and administrators call them, and treat them?

Congratulations on your first post.

Well, in Denmark they are treated like any other children. I.e. Christian and Isabella, rather than Prince Christian and Princess Isabella.
So apart from having "anonymous looking uncles" hanging around at the school they basically can't be told apart from the other children.

^^^ That made me chuckle.

I think at school is the once place the children, particularly when they are young, can feel relatively normal (apart from the bullet proof windows which Edward joked about at his room at Cambridge University. "Want to find my room? Just look for the bullet proof windows!")

And at least the press leaves them alone (a part form the first day of school photoshoot)

Yes Charles was dreadfully miserable at Gordonstoun and was apparently unhappy too at Cheam. Some children can be dreadfully cruel and perhaps a sensitive child like Charles would have been better off at a London day school or at least Eton, which wasn't too far away.

I believe all the Scandinavian royal houses have now stopped the boarding school thing and allow their children to live as normally as possible.

Will be interesting to see what William and Kate do...Kate was bullied at school. So wonder if that will change how and where their children attend school.

Nikolai attends boarding school, Herlufsholm. He didn't start there until 10th grade. We will see if any of the other Scandi royal kids go to boarding school when older as he has.

Pranther, you mentioned about William and Catherine. An article from The Daily Beast (2015/05/07) mentioned:
Prince George, it was understood, will go to Eton, join the army and then become King.

I didn't realise the Daily Beast was privy to the Cambridges' plans for their son's schooling! Having said that, I can see George being a pupil at Eton at some stage. It's convenient for London, quite close to Windsor Castle and will probably contain quite a few fellow pupils of whatever prep school George attends. William enjoyed his time there apparently, (Harry not so much), so I can see it as a viable option. Better than northern Scotland, anyway!

I hope they choose what school suits their son and not simply where Will went. Harry really disliked Eton, but because his brother went there and his dad had hated Gordonstoun, he was sent. Harry would likely have better suited for Gordonstoun than Eton.


Be more interesting to see where Charlotte goes. Marlburough seems likely, not only Kate but Eugenie graduated from it. There is also St George's where Louise is currently a student and here Beatrice attended (Eugenie did for a while). Zara went to Gordonstoun. I don't see Charlotte going there unless her brother did.

It wasn't long after their mother's death that Harry went off to Eton. I suppose Charles and Harry's grandparents felt that the two brothers should be together.

If Kate liked Marlborough and settled in there I think she would be amenable to it for her daughter. She and William are likely to be based primarily in London by the time Charlotte is ready for boarding school, so it would have to be somewhere close and convenient IMO if it's to be a day school.

I'm not sure if Eton is in the plans, but like the majority of future monarchs George will likely attend university in addition to doing military training/service.

I remember reading, before George was born, that Kate had told people she had no intention of allowing her children to go to boarding school at all and had also said that when they were at school she wasn't doing overseas tours during school terms. How true that is I don't know but it will be interesting to see how that plays out.

I also wonder whether they would send both the children to Marlborough - where Kate and Eugenie went to school as it is now co-ed so both could be there together.

That's seems very unlikely that she said that. Probably the unnamed Royal friends or sources which are usually made up. The only interviews she has done since the engagement was the Itv birthday doc. She herself boarded at Marlborough and from all accounts had a good time there. Eton is a short walk to Windsor Castle so if George goes there it is easy weekend access to his Grandpa Charles or parents if they are on the throne.

She has left her children now so they know that it's part of the job. When they are older, they can come along on the tours like William and Harry went to Canada with Charles as teenagers. However, that probably doesn't work for every Royal tour.

Agree. If distance is a concern, perhaps they will select St. George's instead of Marlburough for Charlotte. Both Eton and St. George's are quite close to Windsor Castle, so close to grandparents, and London as well.
