Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton First Woman In Royal Family With University DegreeBy Jane Reed, UniversityHerald Reporter
Kate Middleton does not usually talk about her past. And she does not boast about her higher education either. Which is why some wonder where the Duchess of Cambridge went to college.
Kate Middleton is not only known as Prince William's loving wife and a woman with sensible fashion sense. She is known, to her friends and those close to her, as an educated woman. Because in her family, she has one thing that Kate holds that not one of the other women in her family has. She has a college education. On top of that, she is the first royal bride in the United Kingdom with a university degree.
When she was a young girl, Kate Middleton started her primary education in an English-language nursery school. She was schooled in Jordan where her father worked for the British Airways in Amman, Jordan. Later on, she went back to her hometown Berkshire. Going back to school at Berkshire, she attended St. Andrew's School, a private school near Pangbourne in Berkshire.
Afterwards, she attended various schools. Kate Middleton attended the Downe House School, a boarding school for girls. Later on, she boarded Marlborough College. Marlborough is a co-ed school which is similar to an independent boarding school in Wiltshire.
She currently makes public appearances and promotes charitable causes but the moment William set his eyes on her was at the University of St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland, cites Pop Sugar. At the time, Prince William was getting his masters in geography and Kate was getting her masters in art history. In 2005, both graduated and received their master's degrees, with Kate graduating with honors.
Aside from being the first royal bride in the UK with a degree, she will be the first to have ever attended a university if she ever becomes queen.
Her current work is to promote the various charities the royal family has. The couple supports charities that is focused on the armed forces, art, sports, the elderly, the children, sports and conservation.
