Friends of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are giving them advice on the best school for their 1-year-old son, Archie.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to have spoken at private schools in the West Hollywood area of ​​Los Angeles.

Fees can usually cost around ,000 30,000 (€ 33,370) per year. Harry’s old school, ‘Eton’ costs about 42 42,000 (€ 46,718). While Meghan attended Immaculate Heart High in Los Angeles, a private Catholic girls' school.

A source said: “Meghan wants to send Archie to a diverse and integrated social school. She has been in contact with schools and has started making plans. For him, the biggest concern is that he doesn't want Archie to attend a private school. "

A team observing the couple and son Archie has been appointed by Gavin de Becker, 65, a former security chief for President Ronald Reagan. His firm GDBA is proud to help the CIA and the FBI.
