Her early school years were spent at Dragon School, a preparatory school in Oxford. She was later educated at Marlborough College, a £43,000-a-year co-educational boarding school in Wiltshire, where Princess Eugenie was a contemporary.

Miss Henson studied Hispanic studies and Italian at Trinity College, Dublin, where she earned a 2:1 degree.
