Now, as Prince George is celebrating his 8th birthday, Prince William and Kate are facing one of the hardest decisions they will have to make, whether to send their eldest child to boarding school or let him continue his education at his current day school, Thomas’s Battersea, in London.
The royals are typically sent to boarding school at age 8. According to Daily Mail, the couple have been quietly scoping out new schools, and potentially homes, in Berkshire with an eye to a possible move in the future
Prince George was born at 4.24 pm on that hot summer day in 2013. Kate gave birth at the Lindo Wing, a private maternity ward at St Mary’s Hospital, London.
Two days later the couple announced Prince George’s full name as George Alexander Louis. He is currently third in the royal line of succession and will take on a huge amount of responsibility as the future monarch. And he is already delighting royal fans with his public appearances.
