Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were welcomed by the headmaster of their new school, who said the staff were “delighted”.
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s three children will start at Lambrook School in Berkshire in September, Kensington Palace has announced. The news follows reports that the couple are preparing to move from London to Adelaide Cottage, near Windsor Castle.
Jonathan Perry, Head of School at Lambrook School, said: “We are delighted to have Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis join us next September and look forward to welcoming the family and all our new students . for our school community.”
Lambrook, which is about eight miles from Windsor, charges prep school students £19,344 per term (about $23,000) or up to £57,759 (about $68,000) for boarders.
George and Charlotte previously attended Thomas’s Battersea, which was seen as a more nurturing environment than more traditional royal private schools.
Kensington Palace said it gave them a “fortunate start to their education” and that Lambrook would have “a similar ethos and values”.
A press release from Kensington Palace said: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced today that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will attend Lambrook School in Berkshire from September 2022.
“Their Royal Highnesses are very grateful to Thomas’s Battersea, where George and Charlotte have had a happy start to their education since 2017 and 2019 respectively, and are delighted to have found a school for all three of their children that shares a similar ethos and values as that of Thomas shares.”
Ben Thomas, Principal of Thomas’s London Day Schools, said: “We would like to thank George, Charlotte and all our outgoing students for upholding the values of the school and their many contributions to school life during their time at Thomas’s. We wish them well Happiness and success in their next schools and beyond.”
The school was already in charge of royalty, including two of Queen Victoria’s grandsons, Prince Victor and Prince Albert of Schleswig-Holstein.
Queen Elizabeth II also reportedly went to school earlier to watch cricket Bosiea biography of Lord Alfred Douglas, by Douglas Murray.
The author wrote: ‘While the family settled in London, Alfred and his eldest brother Francis were sent to Lambrook, a preparatory school near Windsor. She wasn’t particularly outstanding, but the children there all came from aristocracy or royalty – including two of Queen Victoria’s grandsons, Prince Victor and Prince Albert of Schleswig-Holstein.
“The Queen herself often walked from the castle to the school to watch the cricket. Due to its geographic location, it was a natural food source for Eton – clearly the route that was eventually considered for young Alfred.”
