From Eton College to St Andrew’s and Cambridge University, the Royal Family have had an elite education all across the UK. Some of the royals even took classes abroad, and also took advantage of their gap years to go travelling. Prince William for example attended St Andrew’s University in Scotland after a gap year abroad in Chile.
His younger brother Prince Harry decided to go to Sandhurst instead of university, travelling to Afghanistan to serve in the military.
Members of the Royal Family have studied all across the world for their schooling and university education, and Express.co.uk has taken a look at where some well-known royals went.
Duchess of Cambridge
Kate and William famously met at the University of St Andrews, where Kate studied History of Art and left with a Master’s degree.
