There’s a rumour going around that Prince Harry wants to study at Yale. Pretty sure the palace has already denied this. But that didn’t stop Page Six from running a story yesterday about how Yale students are reacting to the non-news. Apparently they’re freaking out all over campus. And then, two lines about the students’ excitement, the report goes on to note that, well, it’s probably not likely because, um, Harry isn’t book smart:
“I doubt it,” royal-watcher Richard Mineards said. “Harry’s not the brightest bulb in the palace chandelier. His entry exam for Eton [boarding school] was delayed because he wasn’t considered up to taking it.”
Harry’s not a dumdum. He’s just not a studier. Not everyone is. But Page Six notes that there could be other reasons he might consider going to school at Yale: to find a wife…? So we’re trying to make UnREAL actually real?
There is no f-cking way the Queen would sign off on him going to Yale in search of his future wife at a goddamn keg party. At this point they’re already freaking out that he might meet and fall in love with someone who has an Instagram account. You really think they’ll let him take up temporary residence in the United States for a campus-wide bride hunt among a generation of over-sharers?
Or is that what he’s threatening so that Her Majesty will meet him halfway at Jennifer Lawrence? He’s not stupid if he knows how to bargain.
