Both Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who attend St Thomas’s Battersea Day School, have returned to the classrooms after a week of half-term break which they spent with their younger brother Prince Louis and their parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
At the moment, Prince George, seven, is in Year 3, while his younger sister, Princess Charlotte, five, is attending Year 1 at Thomas’s Battersea, located in south-west London.
There was speculation that the Cambridge family wanted to spend the October half-term at their country home Anmer Hall in Norfolk, however the family-of-five instead decided to go to the Isles of Scilly and enjoy a staycation there.
Prince William and Kate are reported to have rented a modest four-bedroom stone cottage, located 25 miles off Cornwall. This isn’t the first time the family have visited this place, as the family also went on a week-long vacation to the island of Tresco during the summer holidays in July this year.
At the beginning of the half-term, the Duke and Duchess, along with their three children, George, Charlotte and Louis, baked cupcakes which were delivered to a Royal British Legion care home in Norfolk to support the Poppy Appeal.
On Sunday night out of nowhere several reports emerged that the Duke of Cambridge had tested positive for COVID-19 in April and that he spent two weeks in self-isolation at Anmer Hall, all the while being treated by the palace doctors.
The speculation is that he didn’t want to alarm the nation so he kept his diagnosis private. During the lockdown, both Prince William and Kate carried out multiple engagements, either through telephone or through video chat.
William’s father, Prince Charles, was also infected with the virus in March and showed only mild symptoms. The Prince of Wales was isolated for seven days while his wife Camilla, who did not test positive for the virus, quarantined for 14 days in line with medical advice.
