Prince Andrew was initially taught by a governess at Buckingham Palace.
When he was aged eight, His Royal Highness was sent to Heatherdown Preparatory School, Ascot. He studied there until he was 13, when he moved on to Gordonstoun School in Morayshire, Scotland, where his father and elder brother were educated before him.
On completion of his 'O' levels (equivalent to GCSEs), he spent two terms in 1977 at Lakefield College School in Ontario, Canada, on a Round Square exchange programme.
Prince Andrew returned to Gordonstoun to study for his 'A' levels before leaving to join the Royal Navy.
