Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might be considering an American school for their child, which would mean forgoing royal tradition. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are busy preparing for their baby's arrival later this spring, and a lot of their time is most likely spent on getting their new home, Frogmore House, ready for the new family before the baby comes. The 17th-century house, which is located in Windsor, is going through some thorough renovation, but once the new royal home is ready, it is time for the parents-to-be to start looking into what school they want for their firstborn.
Prince Harry went to Wetherby School in London, followed by Ludgrove School, a boarding school in Berkshire, and finally Eton College for boys. Eton was a controversial choice since the royal tradition had been to attend Gordonstoun boarding school, but neither Prince Harry nor Prince William ended up there. Prince William and Kate chose to put five-year-old Prince George in Thomas' London Day School last year, but it seems as if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have other plans for their baby.
As reported by E! News, Prince Harry and Meghan want to give their child a diverse education and Meghan is keen on making sure their child connects with her American heritage as well. The newlyweds are reportedly looking in to the private, co-ed ACS Egham International School, which offers an American curriculum and is located close to Frogmore House.
Meghan and Prince Harry's good friend, fashion designer Misha Nonoo, attended ACS Egham International School's sister school in Cobham, so the couple will have someone to ask for insider information. Mischa Nonoo is also reportedly the person responsible for Prince Harry and Meghan meeting in the first place, so it would make sense for her to be involved in helping the couple pick a school for their first child too.
ACS Egham International School accepts children from the age of four, so there is still time for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to make up their mind. It does sound like this school is a great option for their child though, being located just opposite Windsor Park.
