After the death of Elizabeth, at the age of 73, Prince Charles is going to sit on the throne of Britain as ‘King Charles III’. The thing to note here is that he is going to be the oldest king to ever assume the throne of Britain. After the death of Elizabeth, it was decided that now Prince Charles would be responsible for the throne of Britain. Charles is now going to take over the throne of Britain in the name of ‘King Charles III’. The date for when Charles will be crowned has not yet been decided.
Charles, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip, was born on 14 November 1948 at Buckingham Palace. It is worth noting here that Prince Charles had become the heir to the British throne at the age of three. Actually, King George VI died on 6 February 1952. In this way Elizabeth became the Queen of Britain at the age of 25. As soon as he took over the throne of Britain, his elder Prince Charles became the heir to the British throne at the age of three. In such a situation, let us know about the education of Prince Charles.
How educated is Prince Charles?
The members of the British royal family used to study at home. However, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh decided that Prince Charles would not be sent to Buckingham Palace to go to school. Charles began his early education on 7 November 1956 at Hill House School in West London. However, only 10 months later, Charles was sent to Chem School in Berkshire. This school was a boarding school, where Charles pursued his early education. It is said that because of being a prince, Charles also had to face problems in school.
According to the report of Vanity Fair, Charles became a victim of homesickness in boarding school. He was often seen crying holding his teddy bear. Being the heir to the throne, children in school used to call him 'Fat Prince' because of his big ears. While studying in boarding school, he was also beaten up by two headmasters for breaking the rules. In April 1962, he went to Gordonstone School in eastern Scotland to attend. The Prince of Wales spent two terms in 1966 as an exchange student at the England Grammar School in Melbourne, Australia.
When Charles returned to Gordonston to Scotland for his final year, he was made head boy. He passed the six O level exams. Also, Charles got a B grade in History and a C grade in French. Also he obtained distinction in Optional History paper in July 1967. Charles studied history at Trinity College, Cambridge University, and in 1970 he became the first person in the British royal family to earn a degree from a university.
