A-level results were announced this week, proving especially controversial this year as the exams couldn’t actually take place due to the coronavirus outbreak. The grades are instead based on predicted marks and mock results, something that has proved an advantage for some and a huge disadvantage for others.
As always there have been just as many tears as celebrations up and down the country, with dreaded results morning being something that unites us all.
Included in this are royal family members, as the throwback A-level results of various Mountbatten-Windsors trended on results morning.
So what did the millennial royals get in their A-levels and where did it take them?
