Kate Middleton wants to send Prince George to her old school rather than Eton, friends say

KATE Middleton is reportedly considering sending Prince George to her old school rather than the more traditional Eton College.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have discussed enrolling their eldest son at the £12,605-a-term boarding school Marlborough College, the Daily Mail reported.

George is five years old, so they have a little time before having to make any decisions over his future education.

Both Marlborough and the £13,556-a-term Eton take full-time boarders from the age of 13.

He is currently a pupil at Thomas’s Battersea, a £6,158-a-term co-educational school in south-west London.

Wiltshire-based Marlborough seeks a mixed-ability intake and is less outrightly competitive than Eton.

Kate and her siblings are reported to have loved their time as Marlborough boarders.

The school boasts an observatory and a swimming pool with a movable floor to change its depth in its 280 acre grounds.

The friend told the DailyMail: “William and Catherine surprised many with their choice of Thomas’s Battersea for George over more traditional royal schools, but picked it because they felt it was the right fit for him.

“They are very keen to allow George to spread his wings as a child and won’t ever do what people expect them to do when it comes to their children.”

Marlborough has been a rule breaker for a while, being the first of the traditional boys’ schools to admit girls into the sixth form.
