Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will soon welcome their first half British half American child! 

And Meghan’s American background will likely come into play for its education, ditching the traditional English prep school training.

The Duchess and the Duke are supposedly sending their first-born to the private, co-ed ACS Egham International School in Egham, Surrey, according to E!. 

Formerly known as the American Community School which offers an American curriculum to students aged 4-18. 

Meghan and Harry said they "want a more diverse education for their child."

And Meghan wants her child "to be fully aware of his or her American heritage," a source told E!

the American academy is actually located close to the couple’s soon-to-be home, Frogmore Cottage, on the Windsor estate. 

This is probably part of the appeal to Meghan, who was born and raised in LA where she attended the all-girls Immaculate Heart High School.

She then went on to study theatre at Northwestern University. 

Having been the only royal member to study outside of England limits, all eyes are on to see where their child will be sent for his/her learning. 

Kensington Palace has yet to comment on the absurdity.

Prince William and Harry both attended the very historic, very noble Eton College for boys. 

The school has always had a royal connection as it was set up in 1440 by Henry VI, even though it hadn’t been attended by royalty for years. 

William and wife Kate Middleton sent their eldest son Prince George to Thomas’ London Day School, which is certainly British but surprisingly co-ed, last fall.

The Sunday Times said that some royal circles have been theorizing that Harry and Meghan might choose an American school for their child, who is due in the spring

And Kensington Palace confirmed that the two were moving to Frogmore Cottage early this year. 

The Sunday Times also reported that Misha Nonoo, the U.S. fashion designer widely recognized as Meghan and Harry’s matchmaker attended ACS Egham’s sister school in Cobham, Surrey.

The paper additionally noted that while cost is not an issue, they would actually save money by choosing ACS, which costs between $13,000 and $32,000 annually. 

Where Eton tuition is a simple $50,000.

If Meghan and Harry continued to reside at Kensington Palace, the two would have considered sending their future child to another private, co-ed American school in the metro area – the American School in London.

So if the couple ever, for some reason, wished to move closer to all the royal happenings at Kensington, at least they know there is an ample amount of American schools placed throughout the British capital. 

Education isn’t the only way the two are breaking from royal tradition, the Duchess is also reportedly considering a home birth.

And while we remain clueless about the unborn child’s gender or name, at least we know which school the future royal will probably be attending.
