Princess Charlotte has a big day ahead of her next week. The little Princess is starting school at Thomas’ Battersea for the first time.
After Princess Charlotte’s school choice was announced earlier this year, the Headmaster at Thomas’s Battersea, Simon O’Malley said: “We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided that Princess Charlotte will join her elder brother, Prince George, at Thomas’s Battersea.
“We greatly look forward to welcoming her and all of our new pupils to the school in September.”
According to the private school’s website, the fees for pupils are less for every child of the same family that attends.
At the moment, the school fees for the eldest child who falls into the reception to year two bracket, £6,429 per term.
But, William and Kate’s school fees for their girl will be nearly two per cent lower than George’s or £6,305, since she is a second child at the school. In three-years-time, if Prince Louis attends the same school, the fee for the third child is £5,790.
Prince George has been at the school for two years while his sister has been at Willcocks Nursery in Kensington, near the family home, since last January.
A few months ago, during an engagement in Cumbria’s Lake District, Kate told fellow mother Helen Jones about Charlotte’s upcoming milestone.
“She said Charlotte was looking forward to school. She was very friendly,” Helen said.
The four-years-old Princess will enjoy her first day on September 5 and is set to be in for a fun-filled learning experience. Her teachers and classmates will refer to her as Charlotte Cambridge.
Just today, the Palace confirmed that she will be accompanied by her parents Prince William and Kate as well as her brother Prince George on her first day.
