The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge “got a lot of talk” after visiting schools in the county in recent weeks. Now a list of schools the couple are likely to choose for Prince George, seven, have been identified and they all largely have royal ties.
Prince William spent his early years of study at Ludgrove School in the Wokingham area with his brother Harry before they both moved to another school in Berkshire, the famous Eton College.
And Berkshire Live suggests that these two schools may be interesting.
But Kate and William are also believed to want to live in the county themselves and continue to raise their families there, as they will be close to the Queen who is at Windsor Castle.
Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal expert, said: “According to the Daily Mail, William and Catherine visited schools in Berkshire.
“As her home country, where her parents live and where she went to preparatory school, he clearly holds a special place in her heart.
“His childhood there was very happy.
William and Harry went to Ludgrove in Berkshire before Eton and Berkshire both had the advantage of being close to the Queen, who is based in Windsor and probably in the future to spend more time there and to Michael and Carole Middleton at Bucklebury Manor.
“However, there has been no official comment and no decision appears to have been made.”
Kate Middleton grew up in Berkshire
Kate, meanwhile, is known to have grown up in the village of Bucklebury, West Berkshire.
His first education was at St Andrews, a boarding school near Pangbourne.
She then went to Downe House in Thatcham, where former students claim she was bullied.
Prince George, seven, and Princess Charlotte, six, are both currently attending Thomas’s Battersea in south-west London, which takes in children up to the age of 13.

What schools in Berkshire could Prince George attend?
The school is arguably the most famous in the world and has the added benefit of being a short walk from the children’s great-grandmother.
Prince William was there from 1995 when he became the first member of the royal family to enroll in the school.
Friends from their time at school said that “no one made fun of their family.”
The school’s current fee is £ 14,167 per term, making it one of the most expensive schools in the country.
The school was founded in 1440 and maintains a reputation as one of the best in the world, producing a huge number of British Prime Ministers, including the current one, Boris Johnson, and David Cameron.
Prince William attended Eton College from 1995
William spent his early years at Ludgrove School, Wokingham, which included a trip to the Royal Berkshire Hospital after being accidentally hit on the head with a golf club in 1991.
The boys’ school caters to children aged 8 to 13, and its alumni include television survival expert Bear Grylls.
Her fees in 2022 are £ 9,420 per quarter.
The school spans 130 acres in Wokingham, with gardens and woodland, as well as sports such as football, rugby, hockey, cross country, cricket, track and field, tennis and swimming .
There is also a nine hole golf course and a “magnificent” 20 meter swimming pool.
Away from sport, the school has its own theater and a tree-climbing course “La Maison du Singe”.

St Andrew’s, Pangbourne
Kate also attended St Andrew’s in Pangbourne.
This is a boarding and coeducational day school for children aged three to 13, where parents have to pay £ 6,280 per term for years five to eight.
The school emphasizes the outdoors, with a 54-acre site giving children the chance to participate in activities like climbing trees and making dens at Forest School.
Its website says: “Being outside (and getting muddy) is definitely considered a really good thing in St Andrew’s!”
Another option for the royal couple would be Pangbourne College.
The school has had many royal visits in the past and has a strong naval history. Boarding fees are currently £ 8,620 per term, with day schools paying £ 6,000.
Its most recent result from the Inspectorate of Independent Schools is “Excellent”.
The school was founded in 1917 and was originally called The Nautical College.
Its purpose was to prepare the boys for life in the Royal Navy. A heavy naval theme remains, with regular parades and nautical activities.
This school has the advantage of being close to the parents of the Duchess in Bucklebury.
It is a day school or boarding school in the village of West Berkshire that caters to pupils aged 13 to 18.
Founded in 1850, current boarding fees are £ 13,450 per term and £ 10,760 per term for day pupils.
One of the most unusual aspects of the schools is its Greek Amphitheater, which hosts The Greek Play once a year.
The play is performed in the “classical Greek language”.
