Thousands of students across the country will be eagerly opening their A-Level results on Tuesday 10 August.

It’s a nerve-wracking time for the hard-working teens, who’ve spent two years working for a place at their favourite university.

17-year-old Lady Louise Windsor – the Earl and Countess of Wessex’s daughter – will be among those receiving results today, having just completed her AS-Levels.

The youngster follows in the footsteps of clever clogs Kate Middleton, and the Queen’s great grandchildren – like Prince William, Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie – who prove that the royal family is quite an academic bunch!

To celebrate A-Level results day, we’ve had a peek at who achieved the best grades in the monarchy…

The Queen

Her Majesty the Queen studied at home before having private lessons with Henry Marten, vice provost of Eton. But, surprisingly, she’s never sat an academic exam in her life!

Prince Charles

The Prince of Wales was a pupil at Gordonstoun – the boarding school he famously hated – where he achieved five GCSEs (then called O-Levels). He has two A-Levels in History (B) and French (C) and a 2:2 degree in History from Cambridge University.

His sister, Princess Anne, gained six O-Levels at Benenden School in Kent, and three A-Levels in English, History and Politics.

Princes Andrew and Edward

The Queen’s youngest children studied at Gordonstoun school, too.

Andrew got six O-Levels and Edward got nine!

They both scored three A-Levels in English, History and Politics, and Edward went on to get a 2:2 degree in History from Cambridge – just like Charles.
