This is What Princess Charlotte Will Have Her First Day of School That Prince George Did Not
It seems like just yesterday that Kate Middleton shared an adorable photo of Princess Charlotte on her first day of nursery school and now the little royal is about to start the same school as her older sibling, Prince George.
As the summer winds down and children return to school Charlotte will now be attending the same school as George, but she’ll be able to enjoy something that her big brother didn’t have on his first day. Here’s more on that, plus what the little royals have on their curriculum and what they’ll be eating for lunch every day.
What Charlotte will have that George did not
The kiddos go back to school on Sept. 5 and the palace recently announced that both of the 4-year-old’s parents will accompany her on her first day.
This was not the case for George as he did not have the company of his mom and dad when he started at Thomas’s Battersea. Only the future king’s father, Prince William, was present that day. The Duchess of Cambridge was pregnant with Prince Louis then and was unable to take the young prince to school with her husband because she was suffering from acute morning sickness.
George appeared to be a bit nervous on his first day but the princess is even more of a social butterfly and sources said that she is really looking forward to starting her classes.
“She can’t wait to be with George at [a] big school,” an insider told People. “She is so excited about it all.”
What the children will be learning and eating at school
The children’s curriculum includes lessons in math, English, science, history, geography, and religious studies. They also have more specialized courses in French, computing, art/design, technology, music, drama, and ballet.
William recently said that George “loves” his ballet classes, which he began taking in Year 1.
We not only know what the children will be learning but we also know what they’ll be eating for lunch every day and it’s not peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Their lunch options are on a three-week menu cycle which changes with the seasons so the school serves lighter fares in the warmer months and hearty meals in the winter months.
The young royals and their classmates will choose from a menu of fresh fish, pies, several selections of meat, as well as vegetarian and vegan options. The meals on any given school day could include everything from turkey and ham pies served with broccoli, cauliflower, and potatoes to smoked mackerel, lentils, spinach, and sweet potato curry.
Of course, after each meal desserts are served. Some of those sweet options are egg tart, fruit platters, oatmeal and raisin cookies served with a banana milkshake, or a tropical fruit smoothie. All of the meals are served after the students have eaten their morning snacks which are usually water or organic milk with oat biscuit or fresh fruit.
