Prince Edward’s kids are embracing digital studying in very alternative ways.
Speaking to Sky News on Wednesday, the Earl of Wessex, 56, revealed that daughter Lady Louise Windsor, 17, and son James, Viscount Severn, 13, are “chalk and cheese” with regard to homeschooling amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The eldest one Louise, she had her GCSEs interrupted last year,” Edward informed the outlet. “So we went through that whole pain of just having all of that suddenly taken away and so she sort of struggles a bit with the online learning because she’d much prefer to be with everyone…”
Students within the United Kingdom should take a sequence of checks with a view to obtain a General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) — a course of that was sidetracked for Lady Louise after the pandemic hit and shifted schooling in the direction of on-line studying.
“So we went through that whole pain of just having all of that suddenly taken away, and so she sort of struggles a bit with the online learning because she’d much prefer to be with everyone,” Edward continued.
On the opposite hand, Edward revealed that James “frankly thinks being at home and online is fantastic.”
Regardless of circumstances, The Earl of Wessex expressed aid in his kids getting a break from lessons, stating, “I have to say half term came at just the right time because it was very interesting the frustrations that were beginning to show – and I reckon we weren’t the only family to have experienced that.”
“I count our blessings that we’re lucky where we are,” he continued.
Edward, who’s Queen Elizabeth’s youngest son, shares the 2 teenagers with his spouse, Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
