Prince George, seven, and Princess Charlotte, five, will be returning to the classrooms this week after school was canceled since March. The two Cambridge children attend the private Thomas’s Battersea school in south-west London, where Prince George will begin his Year 3, while Charlotte will start her Year 1.
During the lockdown, dad William and mom Kate had to take up the schooling duties for both youngsters, as all five were stuck at their country home Anmer Hall in Norfolk. The two senior royals have talked about the challenges that this brought, especially during the Easter holidays in April. They said: “Don’t tell the children, we’ve actually kept it going through the holidays. I feel very mean.”
During an appearance on This Morning in May, Kate Middleton opened about how Prince George wasnt too happy about the fact that his sister Princess Charlotte was getting more fun school projects than him. 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!”
Princess Charlotte started her education last year. She was accompanied by mom Kate and dad William at Thomas’s Battersea as she started her first day in the Reception classroom.
Charlotte’s new beginning shouldn’t be hard for her as she has no major changes in the curriculum.
Meanwhile, her big brother George will have much more options when it comes to after-school clubs and activities this year as he enters his junior year or Middle School education.
The young Prince will be able to join the school choir this year. But, besides that, he will also be able to participate in fixtures and tournaments. Within their PE lessons, all pupils from Year 3 and Year 8 can also prepare for the annual cross-country run. So, if George is anything like his mother, we might be seeing him take part in the school’s running team.
The school is also said to have its own swimming club, where pupils can take part in galas against other schools. I guess those visits to the swimming club in Norfolk with mom Kate are going to pay off somehow.
Meanwhile, the youngest Prince Louis, who just turned two in April, will have to wait just a little while before he can join his brother and sister, with nursery being right around the corner for him. He’s expected to follow in his siblings’ footsteps and attend Willcocks Nursery School, which is located very near Kensington Palace. It’ll be very soon when we will be seeing Prince Louis also be dropped off to ‘school’ by Kate or William.
