British Royalty: Edward VIII and George VI--Tutor

Figure 1.--The future Edward VIII is seen here with his tutor >>> Note the black mourning arm bands.

Edward (David) and Bertie were educated at home by a tutor--apparently not very successfuly. The first school they went to was the Royal Naval College at Osborne. Almost all of the boys there were well used to the give and take of school life. Many had boarded at other schools. David and Bertie were, however, totally un prepared by their home tutoring.

Figure 2.--Prince Edward and Prince Albert were tutored together and normally dressed in identical outfits like the kilts seen here.
