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...

In keeping with tradition, Kate chose to follow in other royal mums' footsteps by having her children at the ex...

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.
