Is Prince George set to break tradition by attending a different school to his father?

A change from the norm.

If there's one thing the young royals like to do, it's breaking traditional protocol and opting for a fresh look on things.

And Duchess Kate is no stranger when it comes to just that. In the latest word to circulate, it looks like the Duchess of Cambridge is planning to send Prince George to one of the less expected schools for a royal.

As both Prince William and Prince Harry attended Eton, a privileged fee-paying school that costs thousands per term and produces many graduates which then go to university in Oxford and Cambridge, many believed Prince George would follow in his father's footsteps and too, attend Eton however, it looks like a different plan could be in motion.

According to a royal correspondent, Rebecca English, it appears as though both William and Kate have plans to send George to Marlborough instead of Eton.

Marlborough is equally a prestigious school, costing £12,605-a-term, however, with a lower percentage of pupils heading to Oxford and Cambridge compared to its counterpart, Eton. But the royals and their schooling choices seem to always surprise friends.

One spoke to the Daily Mail saying:

"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.”

Many believe George may be set to attend Marlborough due to the incredible education his mother received there for a short period of time however, nothing has yet been confirmed.

If George attends Marlborough from year seven to year 12, his education is expected to cost £226,890 (€251,196).
