Kate Middleton is said to be ‘heartbroken’ after an ‘unbearable’ row with Prince William about where their son Prince George should go to secondary school
The Princess of Wales is reportedly “heartbroken” following a disagreement with Prince William about where their son, Prince George, should attend secondary school.

Both William, 41, and his brother Prince Harry, 39, were educated at Eton College, breaking from the older Royal tradition of attending Gordonstoun in Scotland. However, while William wants George to follow in his footsteps and attend Eton, Kate, 41, is said to be unhappy with this decision.

A source close to the Royal Family told Touch Weekly that Kate is strongly opposed to sending George to the prestigious all-boys boarding school. The main reason for her opposition is that she was “horribly bullied at her first boarding school”, the insider revealed.

They added that Kate “can’t bear the thought of George suffering through that.”

Kate’s own educational journey saw her attend Downe House, a girls’ boarding school in Berkshire, which she reportedly “hated” and left mid-term. She then moved to Marlborough College, a co-ed boarding school in Wiltshire, where she completed her education, reports the Mirror.

This is the school she would like George to attend. The source noted: “Kate thinks sending George to such a stuffy, upper-crust institution goes against all of their efforts to modernize the monarchy.”

The issue is said to be a major problem in the Wales household and the couple have spent hours “arguing” over the decision, the source said. “Kate long disagreed with her husband about sending him away, even though it’s tradition,” they explained.

However, it would appear is “finally giving in” to her husband’s wishes and he appears to have “won” the argument. The Prince of Wales started at Eton in 1995 and graduated in 2000.

Tuition for the school is £53,398, according to the school’s website. It’s also been revealed that Princess Kate keeps in touch with her brood using a relatable app. With her shock cancer diagnosis and her subsequent stay at the London Clinic, it would undoubtedly have been a tough time for Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five.

It’s thought the 41 year old princess kept in touch with the youngsters using FaceTime, especially while Prince William was looking after the trio at Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor Estate.
