During the weekend it was revealed that the primary schools in the UK will not be beginning with classes right away due to the latest lockdown. This means Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s eldest children, will not be making their return to Thomas’s Battersea this week, and it very likely that the two young royals will have to go back to homeschooling once again.
However, the two aren’t the only ones that will be stuck at home for the time being, as their younger sibling Prince Louis was expected to start nursery in January 2021.
There has been no official announcement from Kensington Palace on where the youngest of the Cambridge children will start his education, with most experts speculating that he will follow in his older sister Charlotte’s footsteps and attend Willcocks Nursery School, located not far from their London home Kensington Palace.
Although the nurseries all across England will remain open, if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge decide to remain at their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, during the lockdown, they might instead opt to enrol Louis at the London Nursery in the summer term in April 2021.
Prince George, the oldest, started going to Westacre Montesorri School when he was two-and-a-half, as the then family-of-four were living in Norfolk. Around the same age, Princess Charlotte also started her education, beginning to go to Willcocks in January 2018.
The royal fan will have to wait for some time before they see all three Cambridge children, George, Charlotte and Louis, all attend Thomas’s Battersea school in south-west London. Usually, children start school full-time in September once they turn four, so going by that we should be seeing Prince Louis have his first day of school in 2022.
Despite the news that they will be spending more time stuck at home, the Cambridge children have had quite the fun festive season, going to Pantoland at the London Palladium in December for a show in full force, and celebrating the holidays together at Anmer Hall.
This won’t be the first time Prince William and Kate have had to home school their children, as they have already passed the initial hurdles that come with it during the first lockdown. Both of them have talked about their experiences, with Kate revealing details during an appearance on This Morning. The Duchess revealed that Prince George wasn’t happy about the fact that his little sister was getting more exciting school projects.
The Duchess said: “George gets very upset because he wants to do Charlotte’s projects. Because making things like spider sandwiches is far cooler than doing literacy work!”
