Lady Louise received her A-level results on Thursday and will now attend the university where Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge studied.

The 18-year-old daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, will start her degree course in September.

She follows in the footsteps of Kate and William, who first met at the Fife university.

While Louise will study English, Kate read History of Art and William studied Geography.

Buckingham Palace has not revealed Louise’s results, but St Andrews is one of the country’s top universities.

Standard entry grades are usually set at AAA and minimum entry grades of ABB for the English MA.

A Palace spokesman said: “Having received her A-level results today, Lady Louise will start at St Andrews University in September to study English.”

Louise has bucked a trend by opting for English, after English Literature fell out of the 10 most popular subjects at A-level for the first time.

It saw the biggest drop in candidates for a single subject with more than 1,000 entries, falling by 9.4 percent from 39,492 in 2021 to 35,791 this year.
