Kate Middleton possesses something which no other British royal bride does.


Till now, we have learned quite a bit about Kate Middleton. We have been seeing and observing her since she officially joined the royal family in 2011. 

Her new royal life as ‘Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge’ has offered her the same opulent jewels, lavish living quarters, and frequent public appearances as everyone else.

But there is this one thing Kate Middleton has that none of the other women in the royal family does. Its a ‘college education’. When Kate Middleton and Prince William met in the year 2001, they were both colleges going students at University of St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland. They both graduated in 2005.

Prince William graduated with a master’s in geography and Kate Middleton with a master’s degree with honours in art history. This made her United Kingdom’s first royal bride with a university degree. If in the future, Kate becomes Queen, she will also become the first ever Queen to have attended a college.

But her education is nothing to laugh or to sneeze at. She was homeschooled from the very start. But, she had the cake full of cream when it came to her teachers. After Elizabeth became heir to the British throne in 1936, she studied constitutional history and law as her subjects with Eton College Vice Provost, Henry Marten.

She at that time also learned French, music, and literature from a personal governess. It was not enough for the Princess, so she took lessons in religion from the Archbishop of Canterbury. Until the time Queen Elizabeth was 18, she joined the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service during the World War II, training as a mechanic and a driver.
