#10 The Queen was homeschooled

If you are going to be the monarch of a country, it is mandatory for you to be well versed in a multitude of subjects, and sometimes they may be very different from the ones normal children learn at the same age. Her eminence knew very well about matters of foreign affairs, constitutional history, law, and religion, but she was never enrolled in any schools!

Both she and her sister, Princess Margaret (who died back in 2002), were homeschooled and spent their formative years in the presence of the country’s best tutors. Alongside them, they learned religion from the Archbishop of Canterbury, and surprisingly, the queen spoke fluent French due to learning the language from her various governesses.

The times have changed, as her great-grandchildren have been sent to a private school where they attend lessons with their peers.

And since we talked about music, why not spare the time to read about the struggles and wins against addiction these celebrities shared with the public?

  1. I probably know more about the Late Queen than most, as we were cousins, altho not close ones, through my maternal grandmother’s family, going back to the Battle of Culloden, when Prince Charles of that era was going to be King of England and there were those who did not want this to happen. I had another cousin, a few times removed on my Grandmother’s side who was from the Isle of Skye, where my Great-Great grandfather was born. She was called Flora MacDonald and she helped Prince Charles escape to the Isle of Skye in a boat. The rest is all part of history. I liked this article and will be making a copy of it. I also am interested in getting a copy of her biography. When I look at a recent photo of hers on a magazine, I noticed the resemblance to my Maternal Grandmother. May the Queen rest in peace!!!
