London - The Duchess of Cambridge is considering sending Prince George to her alma mater Marlborough College, friends say.
She and Prince William are said to have discussed enrolling their eldest at the £12 605-a-term (about R232 000) boarding school rather than Eton, where his father and uncle went.
George, of course, is only five years old and the couple will not decide on his future education for years to come.
He is a pupil at Thomas’s Battersea, a £6 158-a-term co-educational school in south-west London, where he can stay for another eight years. Both Marlborough and £13 556-a-term Eton take full-time boarders from the age of 13.
Friends say the couple are deliberating a "less traditional" educational route for the future king than previous heirs.
