Prince Harry questions future of exams during school visit

The Duke of Sussex said he was “not sure how much longer exams will be around”, during a school visit to mark World Mental Health Day. The BBC reports. 

The prince made the comment to pupils during an assembly at Nottingham Academy.

He made the comment when he was shown a list of exams the pupils had to sit.

Harry told the assembly: “I’m not sure how much longer exams will be around to be honest”, before telling pupils at least they could look forward to Christmas once exams were finished.”

Earlier this week a mental health website struggled to cope with demand after a promotional video voiced by the dukes and duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex aired on TV.
