Prince Harry told students he’s “not sure how much longer exams will be around” during a visit to Nottingham school to mark World Mental Health Day.

The Duke of Sussex, 35, was shown a list of the exams pupils at Nottingham Academy are required to take, during a school assembly with Year 11 pupils at the institution.

“I'm not sure how much longer exams will be around to be honest”, Harry told the students, adding they could look forward to Christmas once the exams were over.

He told one pupil “exams are not much fun” but added he was sure pupils were “right on top of it”, according to the MailOnline.

The duke previously visited Nottingham Academy in 2017, together with then-fiancée Meghan Markle.

Harry himself didn’t perform particularly well at school. He gained a B in Art and D in Geography in his A-levels, which he completed at Eton College.

He took a gap year in Australia before beginning his career in the Army at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in May 2005.

Meanwhile, Prince William gained an A in geography, a B for history of art and a C in biology, when he left the same college in 2000.

Following a gap year, he then enrolled at the University of St Andrews in 2001, where he met his now-wife Kate Middleton.
