Zara Tindall and Mike Tindall may be breaking royal tradition with their two daughters Mia, 5, and Lena, 7 months.

During a previous interview with Daily Mail, Mike said that he has no plans to send his daughters to boarding school when they get older. This means that Mia and Lena won’t follow in their mom’s footsteps because Zara studied at Gordonstoun School in Moray, Scotland.

Prince Philip and Prince Charles also went to the same school. Prince Andrew and Prince Edward were also sent there by their parents. However, Princess Diana was the first one to break the royal tradition when she decided to enroll Prince William and Prince Harry at Eton.

“I’m certainly not keen on sending Mia away to boarding school at the other end of the country. I know many people who say boarding school was the making of them because they forged great independence from their parents, but I don’t really want her to be distanced from us,” he said.

When he was still young, Mike was a day student at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Wakefield. According to him, some of his classmates in school lived there, but he opted to go home after his classes. Personally, the dad of two said that he would prefer if his daughters could go to a school that is close to their home.

Meanwhile, the Tindalls are not the only members of the royal family who are already thinking about the future of their children in terms of their education. Kate Middleton is rumored to be contemplating where to send Prince George to school when he grows up.

An obvious choice is for the third in line to the throne to follow in Prince William’s footsteps and study at Eton. However, since Middleton had a wonderful time at Marlborough College, it is also possible that Prince George will study there.

Next school year, Princess Charlotte will also go to a big school. She may enroll at Prince George’s current school Thomas’s Battersea.
