Kate wants George – and later Charlotte – to have the same school experience that she did as a child

Prince George
Only last month, the Duchess of Cambridge told a fellow parent that she would "see them at the school gate," and it appears that Kate is keen to keep her word. The Duchess will take it in turns with her husband Prince William to do the school run when their son Prince George starts at Thomas's Battersea in September. The couple will continue to be hands-on parents, with the intention of dropping off and picking up George from school every day. The south-west London school is about a half-hour drive away from Kensington Palace. William, 34, and Kate, 35, could have chosen the Kensington sister branch of Thomas's but they are believed to have been drawn to the "village" feel Battersea provides. Like fellow parents, they will face the London rush hour and not make use of a police escort, w...

From the moment they welcomed their first son Prince George into the world, Prince William and Kate made it clear that they would be modern, hands-on parents. The couple have carved their own paths as 21st century royals, while also bearing in mind the importance of royal tradition. William and Kate have taken decisions that suit both them and their young children, but also William's grandmother the Queen. When it comes to parenting, they have done things their way, but have been mindful to keep within the boundaries of royal expectation. The first sign that Prince George and Princess Charlotte's upbringing would be slightly different to their dad William's was at their birth. In keeping with tradition, Kate chose to follow in other royal mums' footsteps by having her children at the ex...

Revealed: The Queen's hilarious nickname at the Palace The Hilarious nickname Prince William gave the Queen when he was just a tot has been revealed. Members of the public are given a strict set of guidelines on how to greet and address her Royal Highness. When first meeting the Queen, she must be addressed as "Your Majesty" and the as "Ma'am". But these guidelines did not apply to her own family, with William giving his Gran the nickname of the average man on the street. Mail columnist Richard Kay revealed he first learned of the nickname when William had an accident at the Palace. He wrote: "The Queen was on hand after William fell over at Buckingham Palace, bawling 'Gary, Gary'. "A guest who went to help asked who Gary was, assuming it must be a member of the royal household. ...

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have enrolled Prince George at Thomas's School in Battersea, which he will start attending from September. The young Prince, who will be four years old when the term commences, will be a part of a famous alumni as former pupils of Thomas's include singer Florence Welch and model Cara Delevingne as well as older sisters Poppy and Chloe Delevingne.

April 16, 2014, was a red-letter day for Princess Désirée von Hohenlohe, the Brussels-based founder of boutique children’s wear line Les Petites Abeilles. That morning, after having spent the past six months caring for her newborn, Felicity, Von Hohenlohe decided it was high time to catch up on the news, so she clicked to the BBC, where the most-watched video was one showing the Cambridge family’s arrival in Australia. To her great surprise, Prince George was wearing a smocked sailboat romper of Von Hohenlohe’s design, sent as a gift at the suggestion of a friend. “It was a series of funny coincidences,” says Von Hohenlohe. “I didn’t know that the Duchess of Cambridge loves sailing, and of course sailing was very appropriate for New Zealand.” [The little prince wore the outfit twice.] And

While some things change, others stay the same. When Prince William went to his first day of nursery school, more than 100 reporters stood at the schoolhouse gates to watch Princess Diana and Prince Charles drop off their older son at Mrs. Mynors' Nursery School. It was the first time a member of the royal family had attended nursery school outside of Buckingham Palace, and it certainly was quite the sight. The royal couple chose to send their son to a Montessori school, a method that balances work and play and encourages children to develop at their own rate. The method might have stuck with Wills, as he and wife Kate Middleton opted to send their son, Prince George, to Westacre Montessori School for nursery. Of course, Prince George's first day differed drastically from that of his f...
