|About the Book|
Most people assume that kings and queens over the ages have generally received a good education - perhaps the best that money could buy at the time. This book investigates the reality of the education of British sovereigns from the beginning of the Tudor period to the twenty-first century. To what extent have changes in the institution of monarchy made differences to royal education? And what is the most appropriate kind of education for our future kings and queens in our present-day democracy? In this book the authors confront these and other important questions and explore some of the possible answers.
