Royal Family GCSE results – Kate, William, Harry and Meghan’s exam grades

After months of revision, weeks of exams and countless panics and stresses, teenagers up and down the country will finally find out their GCSE results today.

Those all important grades can open doors to apprenticeships, A-level course and careers so it's understandably a terrifying day.

And it's no different if you're royal, and we're sure Prince Charles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie all remember just how scary that day was.

But how did our favourite members of the Royal Family get on in their exams?

Prince William

Charles decided to sent Wills to Eton, where he picked up some good grades.

He left with an impressive 12 GCSEs.

He stayed at the school to study for his A-levels, getting an A in geography, an A in history of art and a C in biology.

He did a gap year before heading off to St Andrews university, where he met his future wife Kate Middleton.

Prince Harry

Harry also went to Eton but didn't do quite as well as his big brother.

But he still got 11 GCSEs. He also got a B in art A-level and a D in georgraphy.

He decided university wasn't for him and instead joined the Army.

The Duchess of Cambridge

Kate left her school Marlborough College in Wiltshire with some very good grades.

A good student from early on, Kate achieved 11 GCSEs and went on to get As in Maths and Art, and a B in English in her A-Levels.

Like William, Kate took a gap year before starting anniversary and the pair actually did a very similar trip but their dates didn't overlap.

Kate graduated from St Andrews in 2005 with a 2:1 in History of Art.

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie

Prince Andrew's oldest daughter got nine GCSEs including two A*s.

Her best grades were in history and drama, and also achieved As in French and art with Bs in everything else.

Her sister Eugenie scored two A*s, four As and three Bs at the private Marlborough College, Wilts.

Speaking at the time , a spokeswoman for the Duchess of York said: "She's feeling relieved and really happy."

Meghan Markle

As she was educated in America, Meghan didn't follow the same exam system the rest of the Royals did.

Meghan began her secondary education at Immaculate Heart High School in 1992 where she was known as a hard working and focused student.

During her high school years, The Duchess of Sussex performed in theatrical productions at both Immaculate Heart and Loyola High School.

Her former drama teacher, Gigi Perreau, who directed Meghan in seven plays, remembered that her former student "sparkled."

She said: "You see someone nice to the other kids, who gets good grades, doesn't say anything bad about anybody."

America does not test students using GCSEs or A Levels, and it has not been reported what Meghan got on her SATs (which is the test students take as an entry into university) but it is known that she got the grades she needed to get into university.

She went on gain a double major in Theatre and International Relations at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois in 2003.

During her time at university, The Duchess completed an internship at the US Embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she learned to speak Spanish. She also studied French for six years.

Prince Charles

Prince Charles had a very difficult education to his sons, and was sent to the very strict Gordonstoun.

He left with five O-levels (GCSEs) and two A-levels – a B in History and a C in French.

He then went on to Cambridge University where he achieved a 2:2 degree in History.

Princes Diana

Princess Diana didn't do quite as well at school and failed all her O-levels, twice.

However she apparently excelled in deportment, having attended finishing school in Switzerland.

The Queen

She's met politicians and film stars, speaks French fluently, loves to colour block and still rides a horse at 93 years of age, but the Queen has never sat an academic exam in her life meaning she hasn't a single GCSE or A Level (O Levels back then) to her name.
