9am update: George won’t follow in William’s footsteps with school decision

Prince George won’t follow in his father Prince William’s footsteps by going to boarding school full-time, according to a royal expert.

Duncan Larcombe told OK! magazine: “It’s my understanding [that] for some time, possibly even before George was even born, was that William was quite keen that any child he had wouldn’t be packed off to boarding school.

“Eton for William and Harry wasn’t an unhappy time, apart from the fact it was when their mother died, which means William doesn’t blame the school or the experience of boarding.

“But he’s never intended to have his kids as full-time boarders and if George does go to a school that offers it, he’ll likely be a day boarder.”
