When it comes to the royals’ exam results, it’s certainly a mixed bag, with Princess Eugenie, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle leading the way as star pupils.

Prince William and Prince Harry didn’t do too badly either, although Wills does seem to be more academic than his younger brother.

According to reports, although having “an aptitude for learning” the Queen, meanwhile, had “little opportunity for sustained study” as a child and spent much of her time being home schooled and learning about the monarchy.

Here’s what each member of the royal family achieved in their results…

The Queen has never sat an academic exam and therefore doesn’t have any A-Level results.

It’s reported that Her Maj spent most of her childhood being home schooled for just an hour and a half each morning before spending the rest of the day playing, dancing and singing.

She also received lessons on constitutional history to prepare for her role as monarch.

Professor Kate Williams, author of Young Elizabeth told Good Housekeeping: “The Queen’s father had disliked school and her mother thought it was more important to have fun.

“The lack of a formal education didn’t harm her as she’s naturally analytical and something of an autodidact, as well as being hard working – which we know now is just as important as raw brainpower.”

Princess Beatrice
