Kate Middleton ‘heartbroken over Prince William’s decision to send Prince George, 10, to Eton College’. dung123

The Princess of Wales is ‘heartbroken’ over Prince William‘s decision to send Prince George to single-sex Eton College when he turns 13, a royal insider has claimed.

Speculation had grown in December that the Wales’s may snub Eton College in favour of Malborough College in Wiltshire, which was attended by Kate Middleton.

The Princess of Wales toured the £47,000-a-year co-educational school for the second time last month – this time accompanied by her husband and ten-year-old George.

Kate is said to not be a fan of single-sex schools like Eton, and reportedly ‘absolutely hated’ her time at Downe House, an all-girls boarding school in Berkshire, where she was allegedly targeted by bullies.

However, a royal insider has claimed the decision has now been made to send George to Eton College, the school his father and uncle attended, when he turns 13.

The source told In Touch Weekly that Kate is ‘heartbroken’ at the idea of sending George away to a boarding school – as she was ‘horribly bullied at her first boarding school, and can’t bear the thought of George suffering through that’.

It has long been tradition for royal children to attend boarding schools, though William and Harry were the first to attend Eton College rather than Gordonstoun in Scotland.

Despite this, the insider said Kate and William had ‘argued’ about the idea of boarding school for their children ‘for years’.

William has ‘finally won’, they claimed.

‘Kate long disagreed with her husband about sending him away, even though it’s tradition,’ the source 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.’

William began attending the Oxbridge feeder school in 1995, and boarded during the week. He visited his late grandmother at the nearby Windsor Castle at the weekend.

The insider has alleged Kate ‘finally gave in’ on the matter of George attending Eton College after acknowledging her eldest son wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Pupils typically enroll at Eton when they turn 13, and it is understood Kate is skipping a planned visit to Singapore next year to be with George when he takes the entrance exam.

This consists of a 150-minute verbal and mental reasoning test.

George is currently at co-educational prep school, Lambrook, along with his sister Princess Charlotte, eight, and five-year-old brother Prince Louis.
