Prince George
He's growing up fast! Prince George is tipped to follow in his dad's footsteps later this year, by enrolling in a new school in London. The young royal is expected to start at the £6,865-a-term Wetherby School, a stone's throw from Kensington Palace. His father Prince William and uncle Prince Harry both attended the pre-preparatory school in Notting Hill; William was photographed arriving with his mother Princess Diana on his first day, aged four, in 1987. Prince Harry and Prince William both attended Wetherby School in London Prince Charles is believed to have chosen the school for its close proximity to their London home, and according to Ken Wharfe, who was Prince William's bodyguard when he started at Wetherby, it would be an obvious choice for George too. The school has the motto

She may have a full-time live-in nanny and a mother who gives her plenty of help with Prince George, three, and Princess Charlotte, 20 months, but Kate, 35, suggested it still wasn't easy bringing up a family. 'I did just leave a room of six under threes,' she said, smiling, when she was asked if she was braced to spend the morning with a group of children under five at a centre that helps parents with personality disorders bond more closely with their offspr

Duchess Catherine
The Duchess of Cambridge has praised the efforts of mothers with emotional issues who have turned their lives around, despite parenting being "tough". The Duchess of Cambridge may have help from her live-in nanny and her mother Carole Middleton, but the royal has admitted that raising children is no easy feat. During an engagement on Wednesday morning, Kate empathised with a group of mothers, admitting: "Parenting is tough." Stepping out just two days after her 35th birthday, the Duchess called on an organisation close to her heart, the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, of which she is patron. She visited the centre's Early Years Parenting Unit in Holloway, north London and when asked if she was braced to spend the morning with under fives, Kate smiled, saying: "I...

Prince Harry
Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle took part in drinking games the day before she tied the knot with her ex-husband. The 35-year-old actress married movie producer Trevor Engleson in 2011 at Ocho Rios, Jamaica, after seven years of dating - and Meghan made sure she enjoyed herself the day before her wedding, drinking cocktails and playing games with her friends. The 'Suits' star had a four-day wedding bash at a plush Jamaican hotel, with Meghan drinking and indulging on a beach barbecue. The duo tied the knot on the third day of their bash, with the ceremony lasting just 15 minutes. One guest told The Sun newspaper: "The ceremony was over very quickly - in about 15 minutes. Then everyone hit the dance floor. It seemed they all just wanted to party." However, Meghan and Trevor s...

Kate, meet the world's SCARIEST mummies! SARAH VINE on the creme de la creme of tiger mums the Duchess will face when George starts prep school After years of relative tranquillity in the countryside, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are moving to Kensington Palace in time for Prince George — who turns four in July — to start at one of London’s top pre-preps. I imagine the change of pace will come as a bit of a shock to all concerned. For William, there are memories perhaps of his own childhood, and life in what his late mother described as ‘the goldfish bowl’; for Kate, all the stresses and strains that come with being on show 24/7. But while life will certainly be different from the one she leads in Norfolk, the truth is the paparazzi will be the least of her problems. Because she

The British Royal family live their lives in the public eye, but there’s one thing about them that not a lot of people know: Their last name.

Queen Elizabeth
The INSIDER Summary: • Before 1917, the British royal family had no last name at all. • That year, King George V decreed that the family surname would be Windsor. • Today's royals still don't need a last name, but it's technically Mountbatten-Windsor, a blend of the Queen and her husband's surnames. • Other royals use their family's territorial designation (like Wales or York) as a last name. The British Royal family live their lives in the public eye, but there's one thing about them that not a lot of people know: Their last name. That's simply because, in general, they don't need a last name. They're so famous that they're easily identifiable without one. But when members of the royal family need to use a last name — when they're in school or in the military, for example — they
