Sophie, Countess of Wessex ditched 'old-fashioned' royal tradition with her children
Sophie, Countess of Wessex, 55, joined the Royal family when she married Prince Edward, 56, in June 1999. The couple has two children together; Lady Louise Windsor, 16, and James, Viscount Severn, 12. An expert revealed they broke an “old-fashioned” royal tradition for a sweet reason.
Although it has not been confirmed where James studies, it is thought he also attended St George’s School, which is a mixed school.
This school holds a close family link as it is right next to where Sophie and Prince Edward married.
It is also close to Windsor Castle where the Queen spends a lot of her time.
While many members of the Royal Family have sent their children to be educated at boarding school, this is not something Sophie has chosen to do.
It is a tradition that has been followed by many royals but Sophie and Prince Edward may have found it outdated, according to Murray Morrison, education expert and the founder of Tassomai.com.
He told Express.co.uk: “Certainly many families looking at private schools tend to favour options that are local.
“The trend of sending one’s children away to boarding schools on the other side of the country feels a bit old-fashioned now.”
The expert also explained they could have picked their children’s school to spend more time together as a family.
He added: “Given the Wessexes spend a good deal of their time in the area around Windsor and Ascot, and the range of excellent schools nearby, it seems an obvious choice for them.
“Families realise the greater benefits of closeness: the ability to have more weekends together and to be able to attend events like concerts and plays.”
There are many traditions that have been followed by members of the Royal family.
Although schooling used to be one of these, the expert explained how this is evolving.
