Will Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan send their child to an American school?

According to a report in The Times, the Prince Harry and Duchess of Sussex are contemplating sending their child to an American school.

While Harry and William both went to Eton, the £40,000-per-year all-boys school located just three miles from Windsor, royal insiders have heard the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are considering sending their new child to an American school in Egham, Surrey.

The American Community School (ACS) has annual fees of £25,360 and offers students the chance to study for a US high school diploma and is also within seven miles of the couple's future residence of Frogmore Cottage.
