Prince Harry, 38, the youngest son of King Charles, has spent much of his life surrounded by controversy. The first ones were due to the crazy years of his adolescence and youth. In fact, in the book where he tells his memoirs, he relates several experiences about how he lost his virginity and even drug use.
Now, as a grown man and father, he has been at the center of the debate for comments criticizing the British royal family. In addition to the controversy, one of the details of his life that arouses curiosity is his academic background.
Did Prince Harry go to college?
Prince Harry went through several independent schools during primary and secondary school, just as his father, King Charles, and his brother, Prince William, had done.
His education began at age 5 at Wetherby School in London and two years later he was transferred to Ludgrove in Berkshire. Prince Harry did not stand out for being an exemplary student and at the age of 14, he entered Eton College.
According to Hello!, Sarah Forsyth, one of Harry’s former teachers at Eton, revealed that he was a weak student.
After graduating, Harry put a pause on his academic training, and in 2003 he took a sabbatical year that took him to Australia, where he worked in a stable, and then to Africa, specifically in Lesotho, where he worked in an orphanage and produced the documentary The Forgotten Kingdom, about the region.
In 2004 he returned to England, but instead of starting to study at university, he preferred to enter the Military Academy where he passed all the tests to be admitted and was even sent to Afghanistan on two occasions.
The Duke of Sussex narrated in the book ‘Spare’ how he killed Taliban, that confession caused a total uproar in England and in the Arab country, even the extremist group came to threaten him with death.
Finally, the husband of Meghan Makle reached the rank of lieutenant in 2008.
Prince Harry’s military career ended in 2015, at the age of 31, when Kensington Palace announced that he would be leaving the military and dedicated himself to his work in the royal family, until, in 2020, already married to the American actress, he announced that he would leave that position and move to the U.S.
