Lady Louise thrilled to follow in Kate and William footsteps as university place confirmed | Royal | News
The Queen’s youngest granddaughter received her A-level results today much like many other teenagers across the country. While her grades haven’t been shared, Buckingham Palace announced Lady Louise will follow in Kate and Prince William’s footsteps as she has chosen to attend St Andrews University in Scotland.
The brief statement from the Palace read: “Having received her A Level results today, Lady Louise will start at St Andrews University in September to study English.”
The now Duke and Duchess of Cambridge started their courses at St Andrews in 2001, after taking a gap year.
The university holds a very special place in their hearts, as it’s the place where they met and, after striking a friendship, started dating.
The Duke recalled his fateful meeting with Kate last year in a speech he delivered as Lord High Commissioner during the Opening Ceremony of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.
Acknowledging Scotland harbours sad memories, linked to his mother’s death, as well as joyous ones, he said: “It was here in Scotland – twenty years ago this year – that I first met Catherine.
“Needless to say, the town where you meet your future wife holds a very special place in your heart.
“George, Charlotte and Louis already know how dear Scotland is to both of us, and they are starting to build their own happy memories here too.”
Kate and William returned to St Andrews in May last year while carrying out a series of engagements north of the border.
