The Real Reason Princess Charlotte Is Enrolling In Prince George’s School

Princess Charlotte turns four years old this year, which means it’s time for her to graduate from her nursery school and head towards the next phase of her education. When the new school term begins in the fall of 2019, the tiny princess will put on a school uniform and head to school with her big brother, Prince George.

Here is the real reason why Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William are enrolling Princess Charlotte in Prince George’s very posh school.

Where does Princess Charlotte go to school?

Princess Charlotte has been attending Willcocks Nursery School since she was 2-years old. Willcocks is a private nursery school just a few minutes away from the little royal’s home at Kensington Palace. The school cost the royals £14,500 per year, and parents who want their children to attend must get on the waiting list as soon as their kids are born. Willcocks has been called, a “hidden gem.” However, it’s time for Charlotte to take the next step in her education and it looks like she’s going to follow her big brother, Prince George at his school.

Where does Prince George go to school?

Prince Goerge attends Thomas’s Battersea, a private Christian school with a stellar reputation. The school’s website describes it as a busy, thriving, purposeful school that offers a rich and broad curriculum. Thomas’s Battersea’s mantra is “Be Kind.” Along with their academics, the school has a ton of extracurricular activities including, fencing, philosophy, gardening, and pottery among others. Thomas’ certainly isn’t the cheapest school Prince William, and Duchess Kate Middleton could have sent their first-born son it. It cost a whopping $24,000 a year to attend and that bill will only double with Princess Charlotte attending. The prince, who is called George Cambridge by his peers, adores school.

Why did Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton choose Thomas’s Battersea for Prince George?

The duke and duchess felt that Thomas’s Battersea was the right fit for their eldest son. A royal insider revealed, “They are very keen to allow George to spread his wings as a child and won’t ever do what people expect them to do when it comes to their children.”

Why is Princess Charlotte enrolling in Prince George’s school?

It would make sense that Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William would send Princess Charlotte to Thomas’s Battersea with her big brother with the new term starts in September 2019.

Not only is this easier for the royal family logistically, but it also makes sense for the children’s security. With both the prince and princess’ bodyguards and schedules tied to the same location, it just makes things a lot smoother for the school and for Kensington Palace. Also, for Princess Charlotte who adores bossing her big brother around, we’re sure she’s going to love seeing Prince George at school every day. We wonder which extracurricular activities she’ll choose to participate in.

We can’t wait to see Princess Charlotte’s first day of school when Kensington Palace posts a photo on Instagram.
