Yes. I believe men from his family typically attended Yale and Countessmeout listed notable graduates.

This type of article demonstrates the current desperation of the tabloid press. They know this is a rumor and still chose to write an article.

Hopefully the rumour about the Yale is false. If Prince Henry wishes to continue his education, he can enter a much better university in Europe.

Unless it's an apprenticeship for something specific, Harry has done pretty everything to stay away from colleges and universities. He'll tell you that he wasn't good at school.

Mmm, I don't know why this rumour has been circulating for days. Seriously, it was even denied by the palace, and the odds were against college for Harry sinc the beginning. It was just a gossip meant to chat a bit and getting click. I don't see why many are still talking about it.

And there are better Universities in the US, depending on his program of study. Yale has it strengths, but I think if the POW ever took an architectural tour there, he might never speak again.

But I think this is rubbish. Harry never liked to study!

(Mystically rubbing her crystal ball......)

Through the mists I see Harry in horned rimmed glasses perusing many weighty law tomes in the Yale library but as I gaze even closer, I see on his spiral bound notebooks the word "Chelsy". The guardians of the mental worlds have revealed to me that Harry's goal is to have everything possible in common with the woman's heart he hopes to capture.

Ugh! I have been playing too many fantasy RPGs lately.

I have a very very very low opinion about the US education. A grade of a university does not matter. That is all.

World university rankings like THES, QS and ARWU disagree with you. Aren't US universities the majority of the top 50 world universities in all those rankings ? And maybe 8 out of the top 10 ?

I agree with you though that primary and secondary education in the US is pretty bad though by international standards, which is a paradox.

Going back to Harry, he can't study Law in the US without having a bachelor's degree first, which he doesn't. Law is not a first degree in the US education system like the LL.B is in Australia or the UK for example.

The QS system the US has six of the top 10, the other 4 are British. The top 5 are 1. MIT 2. Cambridge 3. Imperial college of London 4. Harvard 5. Oxford with University college of London, Stanford, Caltech, Princeton and Yale rounding out the top 10. 11 out of the top 20 (John Hopkins, Cornell U of Chicago and U of Penn and Columbia) with a Swiss, Canadian, English and Scottish university rounding it out.

Since he's not taking on a job, what do we see Harry doing in 5 years. His numbers are about the same as last year. Should he be doing more with the platform he has?

I think the young royals will change how official duties are done. The number of engagements one has carried out throughout the year will become less important, and the focus will be on issues.

Harry seem to be on his way to tackling more issues than ever.

We only "know" of the stuff he is doing that gets into the court circular. Many of do believe he is already doing "more," if not CC events.
And as many have pointed out the public appearances come with an additional cost that it seems the family seems to not want bear just now.

It would be the best, PR wise, for him to have a full time position so as to be seen as being engaged. But I think he finds his skills and situation a poor match for the employment opportunities out there. JMO.

I don't think the royals will be carrying out 300 to 400 engagements in the future. Those number will come down and people will just have to get used to it.

There is definitely the scent of change in the air around how to reach people on issues. We've seen Harry having a simple HIV test go viral via social media and reach millions of people worldwide. We've seen HM, The Queen and Harry vs. the Obamas in a friendly competitive "mic dropping" that plugged the Invictus Games which showcases international wounded service personnel. Harry is now an ambassador for United for Wildlife which is a global effort by many people and many organizations for a common cause. To end the poaching and killing of endangered animals.

If one action by a royal that takes five minutes can reach millions of people instantly, it just stands to reason that the importance of the number of "appearances" a royal does in a year loses its importance.

Then by that argument so should any funding. If a 50 second tweet is worth 30 events, maybe 30,000 should be worth a million. Who needs security, helicopter, personal secretaries and such if they are going to sit on their butt and tweet.

Yes PR is needed for events, but that doesn't mean the event isn't needed. Considering that 1 event is maybe 2 hours, they could do 2 a day without breaking a sweat. Say they work 44 weeks a year (pretty sure 2 months holiday is more than above average) and 3 days a week (less than average) they would average 265 engagements, far more than they do. That is averaging 44 hours a month. 11hours/week. Even with plans, that wouldn't even qualify as a part time job.

And if Charles gets his way to slim down to his family, all the work of 15 royals will be done by 5. Even if one argues there are charities that can be dropped, there are many important ones that cant/shouldn't.

The 'royal foundation' takes in money. It's not a charity. If the royals aren't out doing events and raising that money, the foundation does little. Their wedding money could only go so far. Do you think people will continue to donate to royals they never see except on social media. Highly unlikely.

As for Harry's tweet, yes it got a lot of Pr. but not because he sat at home and tweeted about HIV testing, because he went and did it. The Invictus games got a boost yes, but it was the months of planning, promoting and the actual games which did the real good.

Oh I totally agree here. As often stated, seeing is believing and by no means will it ever be acceptable to only use social media. The idea is to make use of all avenues of reaching the public and making full use of all available tools

I agree and have said before I think the type of engagement will change as well. Time will tell what people get used to and whet they still demand of their royal family.

At 32 I can't see Harry wanting to go back to school/collage! Nor has he any reason to think he should do so! If he did so for private reasons there are many private methods available.
He has found his place in this family of his; as he said himself, there is a lot of his mother in him, so I can see a lot of hands-on charity work in his future, other than the ribbon cutting engagements (also welcomed) carried out.
