Prince Harry to study law at Yale?

harry crop

Rumours are swelling that Prince Harry is planning on studying law at Yale University, and — understandably — the news has sent students at the Ivy League campus into a spin.

The 31-year-old is reportedly considering enrolling at the prestigious American law school (pictured below) — ranked the best in the country — after he leaves the army.

The move is unexpected, not least given the rigorous academic standards demanded by Yale. Richard Mineards, royal-watcher, quipped that the Queen’s grandson is “not the brightest bulb in the palace chandelier”. He achieved a B and a D for his A-levels in art and geography — results that fall well below those demanded by top law schools.

Though Kensington Palace is denying the claims, the US press just isn’t so sure that this is just speculation. Speaking to Page Six, one alumnus said that:

Everyone was talking about it around the campus. Big buzz!

Rumour also has it that Prince Harry — who was once in a relationship with Leeds law grad and ex-Allen & Overy trainee Chelsea Davy — could be helped along the way by none other than Tony Blair. The husband of a top QC and a former lecturer at Yale — with a jurisprudence degree under his belt, too — Blair is reported to have helped his son bag a $92,000 scholarship at the university in 2006. It’s now claimed he might help smooth the admissions process for the Prince with legal papers in his eyes.

If Kengsington Palace has denied the claims, then this is a non story!

Isn’t this the man that got only a B and D at A Level?

No favouritism going on here at all.

He’ll be gutted once he learns that he’s not eligible to apply for vac schemes in the City.

As if he needs to work – just look at his brother.

His brother the full time Air Ambulance pilot?

“Though Kensington Palace is denying the claims…”

But why believe the Palace that this nonsensical story is nonsense, when you have an anonymous source talking to a newspaper no one has heard of, about a campus rumour?

This isn’t even worth reporting. He has no talent whatsoever.

This is just a rehash of the already-debunked Daily Mail story. If you’re going to run crap, at least make it up yourself, Katie. This is truly pathetic.

Even if it were true, which without saying it isn’t, why on earth would he study at an American uni and learn their law rather than that of E&W?!

Top form today Katie; the misspelling of barista and a bullshit rumour stolen from the daily mail.

Agree this is a silly story….but aside from the fact Harry only got a B and a D, wasn’t there a scandal some years ago that he only got the B in Art because he got quite a bit of help from a tutor at Eton with the coursework?

This story is about as valuable as butthole-flavoured lolly pop.

Thanks Katie.

Also, he doesn’t have a degree. Aren’t all US law courses post-grad? However, I do seem to remember that Wills did some kind of six week private tuition thing in land economy at Cambridge — maybe this will be something like that.

Wtf is the headline about – he’s a prince, not a knight….

And he wouldn’t be a barrister either…

Anon 5:29 is right; I’m not aware of Prince Harry having an undergraduate degree, which ordinarily would make him ineligible to attend an American law school.

Also agree with Anon 5:30’s sentiment—the title was crap—but the prince *is* also a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order. After all, just about every Royal is a member of a chivalric order.

They’re just scraping the bottom of the barrel – after being called out for just copy/pasting stories from ROF, there’s not much original thought or content available left to post.

Epic fail.

‘Called out’? I read both and that claim is bullshit and frankly defamatory. Take your ‘epic fail’ bro talk somewhere else – I think you’d enjoy ‘uni lad’.

To study law at Yale he would need an undergraduate degree which he does not have. Non story.

If clinical retard and spaz Bush JR can sporran a place at Yale anyone can. The reputation of Yale has suffered irreperably since retards and spazmos like Bush were allowed in. ‘Twud be a doddle for Prince Hal.

But ah dun believe this particular princely tale , as no self respecting person would go to Yale. Jeb Bush was too embarrassed to attend. I wouldnae touch it or Harvard. Bush JR oat-sacked a place there too.

I cant like or dislike anything, but I concur with anon at 8.42pm. English has the largest vocab in the world. Stretch you mind, and find a word more seminal, cogent and informative than bag. Any interviewee who used the word bag was asked to leave the I/v room. Major fail. Same for top and most usages of leading. Vocab is important chaps and chapettes
