Due to the current pandemic, the two eldest Cambridge children, George And Charlotte, will continue their lessons online from home.
With the coronavirus pandemic on the rise, parents were asked to remove their children from schools, including the little royals Prince George and Princess Charlotte. But worry not, the two royals will continue their lessons from home in other ways.
Their school, Thomas’s Battersea, one of the most prestigious schools in London, released a statement that their lessons will continue next week via online sources, in what they call “remote learning”, which will allow children to continue learning from home.
Charlotte just started going to her brother’s school in September last year, while Prince George is in Year 2. The semester would have ended on March 26, so they only missed four days of class. Unfortunately, some students will still attend if their parents aren’t able to look after them during the day.
A spokesperson for Thomas’s London Day Schools said, “Due to the increasing numbers of children and staff being absent from school due to the Coronavirus situation, Thomas’s London Day Schools have decided to move to remote learning from Friday 20 March.”
“From this date, the curriculum will be taught through online learning platforms and we have asked parents to keep their children at home and to access their lessons through this system,” the statement continued. “This will ensure that children have continuity of learning when they are unable to attend school.”
The statement added, “In cases where families are not in a position to keep their children at home (such as those who are ‘front line staff’ in the medical profession, for example), the school will remain physically open until the last day of term, Thursday, 26 March.
“We appreciate the support of our school community as we continue to provide the best possible solution for our pupils during these challenging times.”
At the moment Prince William and Kate are following the advice of the U.K. government and their children’s schools, as they navigate these hard times. There is no special protocol in place as of yet. And that is what we all should do, follow the advice of medical professionals, not panic and just wait for this thing to blow over. Maybe have yourself a pint.
