In addition to English of course, he is said to have a good grasp of German and Spanish, and is fluent in Latin, French, and Italian. In boarding school, he excelled in ancient Greek and Latin. He is a descendant of King George II, and was born in New York City of English parents. [All info I just gleaned from the Internet.]
