‘Heartbroken’ Princess Kate ‘argued for years’ with Wills about sending son George to Eton at 13, claims royal insider

KATE MIDDLETON is “heartbroken” over Prince William’s decision to send Prince George to Eton College when he turns 13, a royal insider has claimed.

The Prince and Princess of Wales were spotted taking a tour of Kate’s old mixed-sex private school in Wilshire, Marlborough College, twice in two months, leading to speculation that they may be sending Prince George, 10, there rather than all-boys school Eton College, which was attended by Prince William.

It’s believed the mum-of-three isn’t keen on same-sex schools such as Eton because she reportedly “absolutely hated” her time at Downe House, an all-girls boarding school in Berkshire, where she was allegedly bullied.

Speaking to In Touch Weekly, the source claimed Kate is “heartbroken” at the thought of sending her son to a boarding school because she was “horribly bullied” and “can’t bear the thought of George suffering through that.”

Both Prince William and brother Prince Harry attended Eton College, which costs £15,432-a-term, breaking royal tradition because senior royals had previously attended Gordonstoun in north-east Scotland.

The source claimed that Kate and William have spent “years” arguing over the idea of sending their children to boarding school.

But, they claim, Kate “finally gave in” and agreed to allow her son to follow in his father and uncle’s footsteps when he turns 13.

“Kate long disagreed with her husband about sending him away, even though it’s tradition,” they said.

“Kate thinks sending him to such a stuffy, upper-crust institution goes against all of their efforts to modernise the monarchy.

“Plus, she’ll miss George desperately.

“She and William argued about it for years, but he has finally won.”

Aged just 13, King Charles is said to have been sent to Gordonstoun – one of the UK’s leading independent schools – by his father, Prince Philip – who had also studied there.

At the time, the decision to send him to a British school was a far cry away from the royal norm – and one he reportedly strongly disliked.

Charles reportedly did not feel a good fit at Gordonstoun as he labelled his time at the school as “a prison sentence”, calling the school “Colditz in kilts”.

Charles wrote in a letter home in 1963 describing the tough time he was having, it read: “The people in my dormitory are foul. Goodness, they are horrid.

“I don’t know how anybody could be so foul.”

In another, he wrote: “I hardly get any sleep in the House because I snore and I get hit on the head all the time. It’s absolute hell.”

This came following Charles’ apparent disdain for his alma mater, which he attended from 1962 to 1967 and famously dubbed “Colditz in kilts”.
