As I said, like all non-standardized forms of education, that cannot be objectively or independently verified.

Back in 30s and 40s all education was non-standardized. New education system with exams was introduced only in 1944 when Elizabeth was 18 years old. Before this reform it was regarded adequate for most children to leave education aged 14.

Henry Martin was only teaching one subject constitutional history. The Queen and Margaret were taught similar subjects for the daughters of high ranking aristocrats such as French and dance. Not really much math or science. The royal men weren’t educated that we either. They were basically shipped off to the military. George V and his elder brother were shipped off to the Navy. So was George and Bertie. Henry the army. If you were the heir you got some time at university.

Charles basically was the first heir to go to school as a young child

The queen's Biblical history tutor was Canon Crawley, of St. George's Chapel, Windsor. Her governess was educated at Edinburgh University.
I can't describe her education as "limited" or "poorly".

Who could replace Matt Smith as Prince Philip in The Crown season 3?

I had forgotten about Matt Smith!

Who should take over from Matt Smith in The Crown season 3? - Radio Times

Lookwise, I'd go for Jude Law or Paul Bettany but I think Tobias Menzies is a great actor too

For an elderly Philip I think Charles Dance would be spectacular.

Her education, I think, is best described in two words. No, three. Practical, sensible, efficient.

I'm having Prince Philip beard feels. Or Matt Smith beard feels. Or both Matt Smith and Prince Philip beard feels. Can't decide which feels are stronger so I'm just letting them take over.
