Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's baby may already have had its future school picked out, sources claim.

Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank first announced they were expecting their first child together with an adorable Instagram post back in September 2020. Back then, the happy parents-to-be revealed only that their baby would be arriving in ‘early 2021’. The couple has not confirmed their exact due date, though now some reports have claimed it could only be a matter of weeks before the new royal baby is born. 

And now it seems like the expectant mother and father are already well-prepared when it comes to deciding on their child’s educational future.

In a Talk of the Town piece for the Mail on Sunday, it was claimed that: “The arrival of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's first baby is imminent but I hear the couple have already made moves to ensure the child has a place at Eugenie's old alma mater, Marlborough College in Wiltshire.”

The publication continued, stating: “I'm told the Princess is keen for the child to attend the £39,000-a-year school, whose alumni also include Kate and Pippa Middleton.”

More from woman&home:

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa Middleton both attended this prestigious school. Marlborough College is a co-educational independent full boarding school and teaches pupils aged 13 to 18.

Where do the Royal Family go to school?

Whilst Duchess Catherine may have attended the Wiltshire school, it’s not yet clear where her own children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will attend when they are older. Currently, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s two eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, go to Thomas’s Battersea

Prince William previously attended Ludgrove School and went on to Eton College, as did his younger brother Prince Harry. Whilst, Princess Eugenie’s sister, Princess Beatrice, attended St. George’s School in Berkshire. 

But if the claims turn out to be true, it seems that Princess Eugenie is sure that her old school is the best choice for her baby. 

We can’t wait for the new arrival!
